Its is nearing the end of September, Autumn is officially settling in, the jumpers are creeping out, boots, scarves, you name it – the winter wardrobe is here. That can only mean one thing, the end of the summer sales, okay it may be slim pickings, but the final discounts have been applied and if you are lucky you will get a great bargain! I was recently in Fenwicks and wondered over to their Wearhouse Sale section, there wasn’t much left in my size in the way of clothes, but never one to pass up some new jewellery, i had a quick browse and came up trumps.
This is my new Graduated Box Chain Necklace – £3.00 (Sale price)
I love it, it is so versatile, yet understated and not too blingy, it also comes in a bracelet form – still available on their website (not in the sale).
(Graduated Box Chain Bracelet – £6.00)
This is my other purchase, my new Diamante ring – £1.00 (Sale price)
I thought this was a great purchase and have worn it almost everyday since. This ring can be easily stacked with others you already have to great a bolder look or worn on its own for a minimalistic look. It is now available as part of a set on their website (not in the sale).
(Mixed Row Diamante Rings – £10.00)

I haven’t done a ‘What I Wore Today‘ post in a while, so I thought I would share today’s outfit. My outfit is made up of some golden oldies found in the back of the wardrobe / jewellery box.
Shoes: I love these shoes, they are the most comfortable heals I own (shown by how battered they are!) these are from the wonderful Clarks. I have always associated this brand with comfy shoes, but last year I really noticed how fabulous some of their pieces are – even if I can’t bring myself to replace these beauties.
Jewellery: In sorting out my jewellery box I have found these lovely gold triangle matching earrings and necklace from Dorothy Perkins. I got these in one of their end of season sales where all their jewellery is really discounted #Bonus I’m never one for matching jewellery but I love how these pieces have a little bit of quirkiness about them, but are still nice and simple.
Bag: This is the first preview of my beloved holiday bag. Last year I went to France and completely fell in love with the woven bags sold at the markets (great for carrying all the fresh fruit and veg home… And I have actually done that, but when I wanted stuff for a smoothie from Waitrose!) so this year I finally came to a decision about which one I wanted. They come in all different shapes and sizes, not to mention colours – the stalls always look beautiful. But I decided understated and versatile would be best for me.
Finally, my jeans are this season Gap, whilst my jumper is another oldie but goodie from H&M. This jumper is great it is really comfy and so versatile – H&M have done it again! My nail polish is the new Clinique ‘A Different Nail Enamel‘ in Hi Sweetie. I also thought I would share a little pic of my hair, loving my new hair care routine as my hair is easily styled like this even freshly washed! *new post coming soon*

By Sarah Hugill Necklaces can have an impact to any outfit which I’ve said previously in my statement necklace blog post. What’s a girl to do when your flight gets delayed? You’ve guessed it…. Shopping! I couldn’t resist this delicate … Continue reading

Deciding what we were going to wear took some thinking, we wanted to make sure we were dressed appropriately for the occasion while still feeling comfortable and expressing our personal styles.
I took a trip to London… and yes you guessed it ended up in Topshop and was instanly attracted to a bright, heavily patterned, body-con mid dress. After trying it on I was sold. It was eye catching and fitted the description of my ideal outfit… as i’m sure many of you do, I get an idea of exactly what I want to buy before I even hit the shops.
I teamed the dress with a leather jacket, from Red Herring, one so that I didn’t freeze and two because it gave a more edgy, less formal look.
I wore a pair of simple, yet classic black wedges from New Look. I thought they would be comfy due to the wedge heel, but the platform is not large enough in my opinion to balance the height, but no pain no gain! Besides, I’m sure a pair of stilettos would have been more painful! I decided to match my shoes and a clutch bag, as my dress added enough colour to my outfit. I chose a black silk clutch bag, purchased from New Look, complimented by a large bow on the front as it fitted all the essentials I needed.
I then chose a silver necklace (also from New Look) which dressed up the outfit whilst not making it too over powering, as I was already in a fairly bold dress.
Sarah Redman opted for an emerald green tunic dress from Asos, which Sarah decied to dress up with accessories.
Sarah (R) wore adventurous peep- toe, blue and aqua shoes from Zara, which she managed to walk in pretty well… Lets just say I was less quick on my feet!
Sarah brightened up her outfit with her clutch bag, which also matched her shoes (great minds think alike!) Her bag was from Biba, and do not be fooled, despite the clutch looking fairly small it was like a Mary Poppins moment. The amount of items that could fit within the bag was rather impressive, the material was fairly stretchy making it practical yet still stylish.
Sarah teamed her dress with a classic black jacket from Miss Captain, giving a chic feel to her image.
Sarah (R) never fails to wear a gorgeous ring, and for the blog awards there was no exception. The emerald stone matched her dress, while the amber stone contrasted adding extra interest to her outfit, a birthday present bought from a small boutique in the Pantiles, Tunbridge Wells.
The necklace Sarah (R) chose was another gem from Zara, the sapphire, ruby red and light green stones added texture and dressed up Sarah (R)’s dress, adding to her elegant look.
The whole experience of attending the blog awards was great, we are extremely grateful to all those who voted for us, it was amazing to be selected out of thousands of other fellow bloggers! Besides, it gave us an excuse to buy a whole new outfit – the bank account may have had a shock but we certainly had smiles on our faces!

By Sarah Redman Unfortunately Paris is rather like London this time of year – A sea of coats. But, being surrounded by a multitude of shop’s I couldn’t afford to step over the threshold of, I resorted to window shopping. Below are … Continue reading
