It’s October which means it’s officially autumn, the nights are drawing in and everywhere the trees are turning red and coats are coming out. I love wrapping up warm and I’m excited to see all the Autumn trends coming out in everyone’s style. So what am I looking for this month?
Pink corduroy pinafore
I tried on a pink cord pinafore recently in Forever 21 but unfortunately it didn’t fit. Since then I’ve been determined to find one and recreate the look which I fell in love with in Forever 21. I was planning to pair it with a high neck, ruffled blouse and hopefully that look can still come to fruition!
Pink cord skirt
Can you tell I’m obsessed with cord this season? Especially pink cord, of course. I’ve seen this look on other bloggers and I think it’s a very pretty style which I hope to recreate. I love this cord trend as it’s very vintage.
So, what did I manage to find from my September wishlist?
I’m still searching for my perfect suede jacket as I can’t find one in the perfect dusky pink shade, but I refuse to give up! There are suede jackets all over the shops at the minute and I can’t wait to pick one up. I did however manage to find a black roll neck top and I’m sure I’ll pick up more in the near future.

Designer shoes are a real treat for most people and throughout my life I hope to treat myself to these beauties. In my opinion these are the prettiest designer shoes out there which if I had millions of pounds I’d be snapping up in a instant.
Chanel shoes are a must have on any designer shoe wishlist as they’re all so beautiful and classy. I actually have a dupe of these shoes (here) because they’re such a lovely style but I wish I could own the real thing! These pink and white ones are stunning and would fit my wardrobe perfectly.
Chloe shoes are so beautiful and these Mike Pumps are no exception. The fact that they’re pink and decorated with bows makes them even better! If I could find a dupe for these I’d buy them in a heartbeat.
These Michael Kors Carey boots are so smart and beautiful for autumn/winter, I’m in love. Heeled ankle boots are so gorgeous and can be paired with so many things that having these in my wardrobe would be perfect.
That makes up my top three designer shoes which I’d be spending the money on if I had the chance. What’s your dream designer shoe? Tell me in the comments below!

Picnics are an integral part of the summer as it gives you a chance to have lunch sat outside surrounded by the beauty of nature. It’s such a simplistic, adorable experience and it’s fun to gather your friends around and socialise whilst spending some time in the great outdoors. Continue reading

When choosing an outfit for a wedding you need something that will look elegant, beautiful and classy and this gorgeous dress from Primark definitely accomplishes that. With its subtle colour scheme and delicate ruffles it not only looks elegant but is pretty and feminine as well.
I headed to Birmingham’s Botanical Gardens and Glasshouses for a picturesque background to tie in with the floral theme of the dress and was not disappointed by the rainbow of flowers that I found there. I explored the tropical themed greenhouses looking at a plethora of different exotic plants before heading out into the outdoor gardens, ponds and fields. They actually do hold weddings here, can you imagine the photos!
I don’t usually go for maxi dresses, as at only 5’2 I feel like they swamp me, but this one is the perfect length. I’d definitely recommend this dress for petite girls as it just about grazes my ankle whilst elongating my body and giving off the illusion that I’m taller.
I paired the dress with pink, block heels, also from Primark. They’re a perfectly wearable height for walking around in all day and the cross straps across the front of the foot can be tightened to fit narrow feet.
This look could be worn with your hair up, showing off the detail on the back of the dress and top of the sleeves, or down for a freer, more whimsical look. I accessorised with my Pandora rose gold Princess Ring and little pearl earrings, both of which are very classy pieces to suit the theme of the outfit.

When I saw this gorgeous 1940s inspired dress on ASOS (here) I couldn’t help but imagine myself sat in a vintage tea room sipping on tea and nibbling on scones whilst overlooking a gorgeous view. If there was ever a dress to whisk me away and into another life, it was this one. When picturing old fashioned, beautiful places naturally I turned straight to Birmingham’s Botanical Gardens and Glasshouses for a plethora of tropical gardens and a beautiful glass tearoom. Shockingly, I’d never actually visited here before but when I found it online I knew I just had to go.
I’ve honestly fallen in love with this dress, every detail is just so beautiful. The lace sleeves add a delicate touch to the piece and I love how it covers not just the shoulders but the top of the back as well. The gathered front creates a very 1940s/1950s vibe which accentuates cleavage in a classy, sophisticated way and also draws in the waist.
The midi length isn’t a length I’d usually go for but for this dress I think it just adds to the elegance of it. This dress is very slimming and the midi length elongates the leg; which is great for us petite girls! The white and floral design is so feminine and pretty whilst adding a pop of colour, which definitely ties in to the flowers all around me.
There isn’t just flowers here, there’s lots of birds too. This beautiful little peacock clearly wanted to feature on my blog!
I paired the dress with these white and mint green block heels which I actually borrowed off my sister. Unfortunately, these are quite old so I’m unable to link to them, however white block heels (such as these) would work just as well. These are a great height for walking around in all day as they’re comfortable and supportive for your ankles, perfect for a day out.
Birmingham’s Botanical Gardens and Glasshouses is a gorgeous getaway from the hustle and bustle of the busy city of Birmingham. With large greenhouses full of tropical plants and so much space filled up with nature it is a lovely place to visit, not only for taking photos, but for appreciating how beautiful nature is. It is like stepping back in time to Britain in the 40s with jazz music playing from a band stand, people having picnics and a quant little tearoom.
I’d definitively recommend visiting Birmingham’s Botanical Gardens, you can book tickets here.
