Autumn/Winter 2011!

Autum/ Winter 2011


Well its that time of year again when all the shops start their first Autumn/ Winter drops. I do love change over periods, I love receiving my new catalogues and sitting down attentively scanning through them with a nice cuppa, (having said that I’ve have 2 little beauties waiting patiently to be looked at for 2 weeks now, time escapes me at the mo!). Its a lovely pass-time of mine checking out the next seasons trends and planning what I would like to purchase if i given a limitless budget!


I know it may seem bizarre that I’m already getting excited about Autumn/Winter, but to be honest I haven’t gotten fully in to Summer mode, it’s quite difficult to do so when you live in wet Wales!

I ordered two beautiful dresses from Next this week and have worn the one to date night with hub’s. Both are dresses that can be dressed with layers and nice thick tights for the cold months to come or a nice pair of wedges/sandals now.

My new A/W purchase :


Both dresses from Next


I have a weak spot for tea dresses! They’re so girly an pretty and so easy to wear. For practicalities I wear mine with leggings (clumsy me = possible public flasher = arrested= so not good, lol!)

I love how this dress hides my bingo wings, a pair of spanx wouldn’t have gone a miss though lol!!


The kids trying to get out whilst we took pics… they were hilarious,(my youngest niece Lillie(pickle) and my Neo.




I’m so happy that vintage 70’s look is very much a key part of A/W 2011. As previously mentioned (a few dozen times) I do love the whole style of this fabulous era. There are some absolute lovely pieces that have already caught my eye… I’m hoping over the next few months some of these may make their way in to my wardrobe. I will be a loving owner and will make a nice home for them and take them lots of nice places! Although my ownership should come also with a warning of my 10 month old son! ;o)


My A/W 11 picks so far:




1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7 are all River Island

8. is Very

Lots more to look through, will keep you posted with my finds!!

    I'm already swooning over the autumn/winter collections myself! With the strange weather we've been having and no holiday plans it barely feels like there's been an opportunity for summer clothing! At least you can count on Winter to give you a reason to wear scarves and coats!!
