Tartan Leaves

 Hello lovelies!
Today I thought I'd go for a more Autumnal look, considering it is Autumn after all (well noticed Kate!), I recently wore this outfit to see the Illuminations with some of the girls: Jess, Amelia, her niece Erica, Sarah and Alice. I've been on a hunt for a tartan scarf as soon as they came back in season. I missed out last year and have had it top of my wishlist for ages. The other week I went into town and searched high and low for one, I'm very particular when it comes to clothes, so if I get an idea in my head of a certain style or colour etc. I go out of my way to find the exact one I'm looking for, I wouldn't get a one just for the sake of it, it's like an investment to me. Does anyone else do that? Eventually I found this one from River Island, which is a brand I don't usually go to but came out a very happy customer. It is exactly what I was looking for: colour, tartan, red and soft material. One of the things I love about this season is the Ivy that crawls up the wall of my bedroom, watching the leaves change from lush, bright green to the in between golden yellow/burnt orange phase, to eventually a gorgeous crimson red. For me it really is nature in it's most beautiful glory. Also below I have done the Autumn Tag as I have been wanting to do it for a while and felt it fit in with today's autumnal themed outfit. It might be time to do more tags so that my readers can get to know me a little more on a personal level. Let me know what you think of this idea and hope you enjoy reading my answers :)1) What's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?
It has got to be a large hot chocolate with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles from Cafe Nero :)

2)Accessories- What do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
Depending on the weather it varies but usually all 3. I have my brown boots or my glittery Vivienne Westwood boots, boring black gloves and now my new jazzy tartan scarf :)

3)Music- What's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
I don't usually have a favourite, just the same as what I normally listen to all year round, just whatever I fancy listening to at the time :)

4)Perfume- What's your favourite scent for this time of year?
My signature scent is what I wear all year round, DKNY Be Delicious :)

5)Candles- What scenes will you be burning this season?
I've been really drawn to a one in Matalan called Vanilla Sugar, smells gorgeous!

6)What do you love most about Autumn?
The changing of the leaves, drinking hot chocolate and wrapping up in cute scarves and jumpers

7)Favourite make-up look?
I usually go for more shimmery brown tones as opposed to my usual golden ones and maybe throw in the odd red and plum lip :)Dress: Topshop, Scarf: River Island, Shoes: Matalan, Tights: Asda

  80. Last year I've actually bough a tablecloth and used it as an oversize tartan scarf...and I will make use of it this season too, ha ha...I do have one tartan scarf that is my absolutely fav and it's the one my dad brought from London years ago. I think it's even some well kown brand but I don't remember such things.

    I love the tartan scarf you have on...it matches loves with that dress and I love that you've mixed it up a little with those polka dots tights (if I see well)....you look adorable! I really like your hairdo and that first photo got me thinking about what mascara you use- please do tell. Your eye-lashes look great!
