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.

Making the Glastonbury Festival bag dress – version 2
June 19, 2019
Wishing Glastonbury Festival isn’t over, on the Monday afternoon when most people have gone home, the kids and I usually take a walk through the festival site. It’s sad to say that some people STILL aren’t taking any notice of the ‘Love the farm; leave no trace’ mantra, and during the years when we were given free tote bags on arrival, unfortunately many were left behind. Rather than let them go into landfill, from 2015 to 2017 I decided to pick up as many as I could carry to turn them into a festival dress…

Styling cream and khaki and enjoying a warm day!
October 16, 2017
Khaki green is another regular colour that crops up in most autumn fashion style editorials in magazines at this time of year – some years more than most. I’ll admit, it doesn’t seem to be one of the major must-be-seen-in colours of fall 2017, but none-the-less I love it! It’s almost a neutral, and seems to go with every other colour in my wardrobe, except perhaps red and grey. And pale blue. Ok, so maybe not every colour, but quite a lot! It goes perfectly with dusky pink (of which I own a fair few items), black, and every shade of brown from dark chocolate to pale cream. On this occasion, I chose cream….
