September



It feels like I've been waiting all year for September to come around and I can't believe it's over! September has been a whirlwind of excitement, holiday memories and just lots of lovely days. From packing my bags to going on holiday to having quality time with family, it's been an all round lovely month.
At the beginning of the month I was super busy last minute shopping and organising things for Rome! We jetted off the first weekend of the month and I could not wait to get on the plane and start having a great holiday with the person I love most. We had the BEST week away adventuring around Rome, seeing all the sights and eating all the pasta, pizza and ice cream! Rome is a beautiful city and I can't wait to go back. We came home super relaxed and went back to work happy and refreshed (even though I had massive holiday blues!) 
It took me a week to settle back into routine and get out of lazy holiday mode. I had a few lazy nights in with my boyfriend which are always nice, a naughty late night dinner date with him and we even went to a Drive In cinema where we watched Grease, ate Pizza in the car and had a huge sing-a-long to all our favourite Grease tunes! It was a pretty special night! Other things this month have included a few shopping trips, planning and booking exciting things for next year and we had a lovely night in with my family this week too. 

Autumn is one of my favourite months of the year and I am definetely in the Autumn mood. I'm so excited for snuggly nights in, more x factor, hot chocolates, coats, jumpers and Halloween! We've got a few things planned for next month and I'm super excited! What's your favourite season?

What Amanda Wore: Dungarees



Dungarees: Primark | Tee: Topshop | Shoes: Topshop

Apologies. I am SO ill right now.. coughing, sneezing, sore throat, the lot. I'm struggling to write this post and the pictures are even worse. I woke up like this on Saturday morning and I just haven't been able to shake it. Sigh. I'm feeling a little bit better today, which is why I decided to get dressed and out of bed. My boyfriend came round today too and bought me some treats. Two big bottles of orange juice, throat sweets and a big bar of chocolate, what a sweetheart! We had a super lazy day watching films and catching up with TV on the sofa.. it was just lovely.
For a super lazy Sunday, I was tempted to wear my pyjamas all day but my boyfriend said if I get dressed, I'll feel better. I decided to wear my comfiest clothes possible, so I dug out my dungarees! A 90's throwback or what?! I had a wicked pair of denim dungarees that I loved, so when I spotted these in Primark, they had to be mine! Super comfy, perfect for lazy days.. I love them. I wore them with a cropped white tee and my fluffy panda socks to keep my toes warm. The perfect lazy day outfit.. except I felt like a painter all day, haha!

Things I Want: #57 The Miss Selfridge Edit



OMG. Look at those jumpers. They have fur! I'm seriously loving Miss S at the moment.. all the pastels, fur and paisley prints. I'm on the hunt for versatile pieces especially as I'm going to be able to wear what I want to work when I start my new job this week! I'm thinking to style that Paisley skirt with tights and that gilet for the layered look, I'm loving that staple biker jacket which is missing from my wardrobe and those fur jumpers... I need them in my life. Someone stop me from buying everything on this list! I do want a pay day treat though.. ;)
