OOTD & My A/W Haul!

Since I recently posted about Tyne's Autumn/Winter clothes haul - I thought I'd share with you the things I've bought for myself to get me through the season!

I have been struggling a little to know what to wear since having Tyne as I am nowhere near happy with my figure at the moment and am wanting to disguise it a lot, and wanting to keep warm - but I have never liked jeans and I don't want to always be wearing leggings because I enjoy fashion and trying to look nice!

I've browsed a lot online - looking at everything from autumnal maxi skirts from and some lovely cheap Midi Skirts from MaryJane Fashion -  and these are the items I've chosen so far this season:

I love socks and am such a sucker for cute designs! The fox ones are my favourites!

I already have a pair of Pineapple knitted black boots but I think a pair of black boots are a must for the winter!

 I got into patterned leggings last year so was pleased to see them still around this year, I don't particularly like the cut of this jumper but I like the design!

 I love ankle boots and totally fell in love with these ones!

Jumpers are my staple item - especially oversized longline ones!

I also picked up some maxi skirts and t shirts for days at home or warmer days.

I thought this black jumpsuit would be nice for any evenings out I might have

Yet more jumpers!

Today we went out for a walk around Preston Sands, and I snapped a few pics of my outfit that I thought I'd share with you.

(We'll be reviewing this fab Joolz Day Pushchair over the next week or so!)

What kinds of clothes do you like to wear in the autumn/winter? As always, I'd love to hear from you!
