Four Budget Friendly Autumn Winter Trends

Hi everyone, I thought I'd do something a little different for you again this week.  I've been doing a lot of 'window shopping' lately (online of course) and I've noticed so many really cool trends appearing in all the stores.  So I thought I would sort out some of the best bits I've seen and show you a little selection, I honestly could spend a fortune on some of these gorgeous pieces but I also wanted to make these selections as budget friendly as I could, so you can look like you've just walked off a catwalk and still have some pennies left over! :-)

Lets start with one of my favourites items in the world; Boots!!

1 Black Star Ankle Boots from Dorothy Perkins £33.  2 Metallic (Gold) Heeled Ankle Boots from River Island £40.  3 Silver Glitter Boots from Primark £15.  4 Silver Metallic Ankle Boots from New Look £28.  5 Black Glitter Ankle Boots from New Look £30.  6 Black Velvet Glitter Heel Boots from River Island £45

I would honestly be happy with any of these, I wasn't sure about the silver ones to start with, but they've definitely grown on me, and as for those gorgeous star boots I want, I want, I want!!

On to statement winter coats -

1 Black Long Length Biker Jacket from Dorothy Perkins £48.  2 Textured Teddy Coat from George at Asda £30.  3 Shearling Waterfall jacket from Primark £25.  4 Black Faux Fur Trim Belted Jacket from New Look £55.  5 Cutie Trench Coat from F&F at Tesco £32.  Fit and Flare Dolly Coat from Dorothy Perkins £45

I'm absolutely loving these gorgeous statement winter coats at the moment, especially the biker style ones, I think they really complete an outfit.  Usually in the winter, you cover up a good outfit with a boring winter coat but this season, you can look good and stay toasty warm :-)

Next up is embroidered items, these are so popular right now! -

1 Pale Grey Floral Embroidered Funnel Neck Sweater from New Look £28.  2 Embroidered Skinny Jeans from George at Asda £16.  3 Embroidered Peasant Blouse from George at Asda £14.  4 Slogan Embroidered T'Shirt from Matalan £12.  5 Black Embroidered Bow Hairclip from New Look £4.  6 Black Denim Embroidered Skirt from Primark £12

I just love that blouse, it's so pretty but the sweater is definitely on my wish list, cute and cosy!

And finally big statement earrings -

1 Filigree Drop Earrings from Primark £2.  2 Circle Chain Drop Earrings from Matalan £5.  3 Emerald Green Acrylic Bead Drop Earrings from F&F at Tesco £4.65.  4 White Christmas Tinsel Earrings from Dorothy Perkins £3.20.  5 Diamante Teardrop Earrings from Primark £1.50.  6 Black Jet Cross Earrings from New Look £6.  7 Pom Drop Earrings from Asos £6.  8 Silver Stick & Ball Earrings from Dorothy Perkins £4.  9 Crystal Diamante Earrings from New Look £5.  10 Statement Metal Flower Drop Earrings from Asos £12.

It's funny how fashions and trends come back around, I used to wear big earrings all the time years ago and now they're back in the shops again!  I particularly like the black cross earrings (very me), but I can't help loving the white tinsel pom-poms too, they're so cute and Christmassy! :-)

I think many of the general high street stores have a great selection of the current trends this year, but New Look certainly seems to have the best of the bunch and are stocking some really great stuff at quite reasonable prices at the moment.  So why not treat yourself to some new bits this season!

As always I hope you liked this post, let me know in the comments what your favourite pieces are at the moment or what bargains you've been finding :-)


Just a couple of other notes - for the next couple of months or so, life for me is going to be very hectic so, I will be uploading posts every two weeks instead of every week, as I'm just not going to be able to give my all to my posts and spend as much time on them each week as I would like to and as I do now!  But When I do start back with weekly posts (and possibly before then too) I may have a few other surprises to tell you about, with other projects I'm currently working on and I'm very, very excited for you to finally hear about them, so keep a look out for those in the next couple of months :-)


And finally, the winner of my Silver Heart Necklace Giveaway from my 3rd Blog Birthday post, is Ellen Stafford Congratulations to you, your necklace will be in the post soon!! :-D  You find Ellen by clicking on the links below. . .

3rd Blog Birthday & Giveaway

Hi everyone, I can't believe it's already this time of year again, already!  It only feels like a couple of months ago I was sat here writing about my 2nd blog birthday and now here I am celebrating my 3rd!

I just can't believe I've been writing my blog for 3 years!!  And what an exciting 3 years it's been, I've learnt so much, I've grown in confidence and I've made some really great friends.  I've loved writing about so many things, I've taken hundreds of photos and spent many enjoyable days sat writing, editing and planning for all my various posts.  I've loved blogging about all the different things I love; like doing reviews and tags, showing you my baking disasters and fun days out, my gorgeous poodles and all my naughty spending sprees! :-)

But best of all, I've loved getting to know my readers, chatting to you on Twitter and reading your amazing blogs.  So here is a very big THANK YOU, for sticking with me and faithfully reading my (often very long) posts!

And as a little thank you from me to you, I am giving away this beautiful little silver heart necklace.  It has a small double heart with a double row of pretty pink crystals around the outside.  It's very dainty and would look gorgeous with a nice shirt or over a T'shirt.  You could also wear the two hearts on separate chains for a different look.
*please note, the website did state that the necklace is nickel free* :-)
