Weekly Wardrobe – Halloween Harry Potter style

It’s the last day of Blogtober – I did it! Hooray! and Phew! I’m finishing off the month with a witch / Harry Potter look as it’s Halloween today. I had actually planned to do a goth look, but as I’m sneezing and yawning (I’m so tired lately) which make my eyes water, I didn’t think it was conducive to black eye shadow and heavy eyeliner!…

It’s the same basic red top from the other day, from Tesco, and I’m layering over it a Gryffindor Harry Potter cardigan that I bought from Hot Topic when we were in America a few years ago. (By the way, always go up a size or two in Hot Topic – this cardigan is Extra large and I still can’t do the buttons up without it gaping. Tsk.)

The ruffled black skirt is by Bohemia, which I bought from their stall at Glastonbury Festival about six years ago. Oh how I wish they’d come back – I’ve missed their stall so much the last couple of years!

Basic black leggings from Primark, and Clarks ankle boots, that I deliberately didn’t show you properly as they are covered in dog snot. The light is fading fast at this time of year and I just didn’t have time to wash them. (That’s my excuse anyway.) No doubt I’ll be wearing them for another weekly wardrobe soon and I’ll be more prepared. I will – honest.

The bag is a new second hand purchase from ebay and I haven’t fully swapped everything over from my old bag yet. It’s from Kipling – I love all the pockets and organising bits, but not so keen on the monkey keyring, so I took that off. I love the autumn colours though.

The copper necklace was also from ebay. It’s not really my colour, but the leaf design is so perfect for this time of year, I couldn’t resist. I also don’t usually wear necklaces that length – the last time I wore this one I tied a not in the back to make it shorter – but I thought I’d give it a go. I’m still not sure, but hey ho.

The summer evening jacket. A handmade pixie hem hippy-style coat
May 9, 2018
I have to admit, although we recently took the photos for this jacket; spring is actually a very difficult season to wear it due to its lack of waterproof-ness and the inclination in England for it to suddenly rain two minutes after the sun is blazing! So that’s why I entitled this as being ideal for summer evenings. It would also be great festival fashion as the pixie hem and unusual woven fabric gives it quite hippy vibes, whilst also being warm when the sun goes down, and perfect for sitting with friends around the bonfire after a night of dancing….

Styling the Spring/Summer 2018 trends: Pink
June 18, 2018
I have several items in my wardrobe of the dusky blush pink variety; but not so many of the brighter and pastel shades of pink that are on trend this season. I’ll have to be honest, is isn’t a shade that I think suits me very much, but this dress was so lovely, I wasn’t going to pass it by due to the colour! Some of these photos show how I styled it last summer, and some are from cooler days this spring, so they give you a couple of different ideas for how to style a pink dress….
