Casual Friday (& Passion4Fashion Link Up)

Casual Fridays are always a good idea in my eyes. I have been working a lot from home of this week and had appointments etc so casual has been the dress code. Boyfriend jeans have been my jean of choice this week. I had a trip to Sainsbury's earlier this week and picked up these lovely jeans and patent brogues.. its love! And yes another supermarket purchase, i know i know. I blatently can't be trusted in any supermarket. I ahve to say Sainsbury's had some pretty swell things there (shame you can't buy online though i say!)
So at this time of year i  totally, full-on crush on burgundy. It was the colour to be in last winter and i'm happy to see that its definitely around again this year. What's great is that is seems to work well for this icky weird transitional phase we're in right now and also gives me my autumnal fix all at the same time. Speaking of Autumnal have you seen? Starbucks have Pumpkin spice back! ohh mmmyy pumpkin! Bring. it. on.
So back to the outfit, with the boyfriend jeans and loafers i just paired a pretty floral top that i've had since last year and this long line maxi (ish) fine knit cardigan, which gives the perfect amount of coverage in this aforementioned icky weird weather phase.
Finished off with a Primark special burgundy little double handle (big this season) bag, and the beautiful intricate Pretty Posey necklace in green that's all kinds of wonderful.. and there we have it..Simple but happy and comfy.
Happy Casual Friday all!
