The October Shopping List

I am not sure where this year is going, how are we nearly mid way through October already?  I am still not into my Winter wardrobe yet, it's all about the big Summer vacation at the end of this month!  I am however clearing out my wardrobe, getting it ready for some new Winter purchases but I'm more about what needs to go than what I need right now.

The Summer box firmly has it's lid on it but it does need an upgrade to something slightly prettier (originally it was unseen in the loft!)
At one stage this was rammed with handbags...(identical shelves opposite still fairly full but no where near as many as when I first took over this wardrobe!)
The colourful dress and skirts side of my wardrobe, with a load of 'to try on' bits at the end - wardrobes are a work in progress, don't ever over do it all in one sitting.  I've made some big mistakes in getting rid of items purely because I was in that mood and had lost patience with it all.

My October shopping list goes as follows;
  • A fur pom pom hat.  Ideally it would be cashmere with a fur pom pom but I was slacking looking for one in the sales last year and I am not good at paying full price for something.  So we will see!
  • Black jeans - now we are Winter bound, I kinda need to get into searching for these ASAP.  I've been struggling with my Baxter skinnies for a while now as they just sit too low, Gap seems to be better so I need to spend some time in there trying on.
  • Christmas party froc - yep, I need to crack on with this, time flies when you're having fun and my husbands works do is the start of December.  I am considering my stripe H&M skirt below as a starting point to this outfit and re-working it in a different way. 


So what did I buy from my September list?
  • Wedding sandals - tick (will be sharing on another post, it's far too long a thought process to add it to this one....)
  • Um, nothing else but I did randomly buy a hat (£15) from a vintage store and a new vest from one of Mary Portas's Living & Giving shops for £5.  I'm fairly pleased with my lack of purchases actually!

  4. Try the ASOS Ridley black jeans....they are high waisted and have just the right amount of stretch! They are super comfy! Better than the Baxters! Love that hat and look forward to seeing what you go for for the wedding xx
