A few weeks ago now I went along to the La Redoute summer party to celebrate the summer and to also look at the upcoming autumn winter ranges. We had such fun- Having hand massages from Molten Brown, lovely cocktails, the chance to try on clothes and an ice cream van!! Of course lots of my fave blogging girls were there too!
I love a good maroon colour for Autumn and this dress is perfect. I originally wasn’t sure about the style as it’s not something I’d usually go for, it’s straighter and slightly shorter than my usual dresses but I actually think it works and looks lovely. Here I paired it with some flat navy boots but on the night I wore heels and both work. I’m wearing a size 20 here and I’d say it was a true to size fit, it also has a hidden button to help cover up a bit more if you’re wearing it for work or something, of course I left it open as I like to show a bit of cleave! The Wrapover dress is available for £45 here*
I’m also a print fanatic and when I saw this button through dress (£69)* I fell in love. Unfortunately for me they only had an 18 and it’s very waist sinching- and I don’t have a waist so it doesn’t fit me! I kept it on as I loved it that much and think it looks great as an over jacket/dress with this outfit don’t you!? I’d suggest to wear it properly I’d need at least a 20, maybe a 22 due to the positioning of the waist on me. It also isn’t the most generous in the bust, so again if you’re eyeing it up, definitely size up. I finished the outfit off with my new Autograph bag from Marks and Spencer’s which I’ve been wanting for nearly six months and finally got in the sale (I needed to- it was £69 full price and it’s not exactly huge) I do love it when I get something I’ve wanted for ages in the sales so needless to say I was pretty happy when I picked this up.
I actually think I’m feeling Autumn-y now so I’m thinking about going to a pumpkin patch soon as I’ve never been to one- what else should I do to feel even more autumnal do you think?
