October’s here and it’s finally starting to feel like fall! Most of my fall wardrobe is going to be classic pieces that I have had in my closet for the past year or two, but these are a couple things that I want to add to my list of stables for my favorite season!

1. Combat boots - I’m on the hunt for an affordable pair since I can’t wear these shoes year round, I think I’ve found a pair here and hopefully I can order them soon! I love the look of them, and that you can wear them with jeans, tights, dresses, and just about anything else you can think of! 

2. Utility jacket - While I was in New York a couple weeks ago I saw a girl wearing a similar jacket and I fell in love with the way it looked. Paired with combat boots, shorts and a loose white T everything about her effort just looked effortless but still put together, not messy. I love that it cinches at the waist, and the one that I ordered has a hood for rainy days! I’m just waiting for it to come in the mail, here’s the link to get the one that I got! -click-

3. Wrap around belt - I’m not sure where I can get this yet, but I’m on the hunt for a super long belt that I can wrap around my waist twice! I want to pair it with dresses over tights, and to cinch in the waist of my cardigans and jackets. I think it gives the outfit a whole different look, with just that minor detail. Any suggestions on where I can find one?

4. Naked Palette -I’m over a year late with this trend, but I’ve been eyeing this palette ever since it came out. I just couldn’t justify purchasing it when I had so many similar colors at home already. I think this month I’m going to spoil myself a bit and gift this item to myself, I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it. You can get it here

Outfit #1. I experimented with items from my own closet and pieces from the shop. Today’s adventure was to a nearby consignment shop (which I immediately fell in love with!! Look up Crocker Blvd Resale if you’re ever in the Mount Clemens area. The lady was SUPER nice to talk to and had an awesome selection of jewelry! I’m wearing a cute little pineapple brooch I bought there on my lapel) then next door for coffee and ice cream 😊

Skirt: Lord and Taylor Suede Pencil Skirt
Purse: Authentic Cuban Crocodile Skin Handbag (coming soon!)
Jewelry: Gold Pineapple Brooch with Pearls (I might just keep this one for myself. I LOVE pineapples 🍍)

I made this for my mum for her birthday as we both love owls and thought it would be a good idea to experiment with embroidery and try other designs to sell. But before doing so, I thought I would put feelers out and see if anyone would be interested in buying similar designs to this and how much for? I was thinking charging around £10 depending on sizes? Would love some feedback! Thankyou x #embroidery #crafts #owls #flowers #tobuy #share
