What Amanda Wore: The Paisley Skirt

Top: Topshop | Skirt: Miss Selfridge | Jacket: Primark | Boots: Clarks | Bag: Accessorize

What a lovely sunday. Sunday is my favourite day of the week, just a whole day where me and my boyfriend can relax, have a lazy one at home or go out for the day. We spent today shopping, buying a few bits and bobs we need for our short break to Portugal soon. Eeeep! I ended up going in Lush and finding all the Christmas bath bombs and bath melts and I went a little pyjama crazy in Primark too.. oops, but you can never have too many pyjamas!
The last few weeks, I've been obsessed with monochromes and Autumn colours. I bought a few new pieces for my Autumn wardrobe while I've been out and about and this skirt was one of them. I love this skirt - I was really drawn to the Autumnal hues, wine, grey, white and black with a classy jaquard print. It's more of an A-line fit than anything else, so I wore it with my loose Berlin tee, and my black leather jacket. On my feet were my favourite boots at the moment, these high boots that I can't get enough of!

Things I Want #60:The H&M Edit

Jumper | Boots | Top | Hat | Skirt 

H&M is one of those shops I always walk past. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I really dislike shopping in H&M - I always feel a little intimated, so I leave my browsing and shopping to online. From the basics to the staples, H&M has everything and I don't know why I don't buy from them more often. From that floral jacket to the Batman tee, I'm wanted everything from H&M! I'm lacking in Autumn/Winter clothes and I feel like doing a huge shop soon to buy all the necessities I need for Winter. I'm thinking that berry coloured skirt will be perfect to throw on with a jumper, that hat to dress up my daytime outfits, and that winged bag I'm lusting after! As a hat lover who only has a two hats.. I'm on a mission to find the perfect bobble hat and I think this H&M one might be the winner! If I had to pick one thing, it would be that floral winter jacket for sure... I need it!

What Amanda Wore: Polka Dots & Polar Bears

Jumper: eBay | Skirt: H&M | Jacket: Primark | Tights: Primark | Boots: F&F 

Yesterday was an IKEA day. Me and my boyfriend hopped in the car and headed down to Wembley for a day for browsing cute homewares and totally acting like Tom and Summer. There's a Chinese family in our bathroom. The real reason for our visit was to purchase my final piece of furniture.. my chest of drawers! I started decorating my bedroom this time last year and am so happy all the IKEA runs are done and my bedroom is almost complete. We spent the evening assembling it, (my boyfriend putting it together and me in charge of the screws), but it was bedtime by the time we finished and we were so tired after our busy day. I do love IKEA trips.. they sell the cutest bits and bobs and even though I don't like the meatballs, it's still one of favourite places to spend a Sunday.
For a super cold day, I went a little monochrome. I'm loving this dotty skirt - I think it's a staple, and was really cheap too! I wore my Polar Bear jumper over the top too. It's so warm and cosy, perfect for a gloomy Autumn day! I do love my animal printed things and this little guy is too cute!
