November's Confessions + WIW

Dune Beston mini brooch evening bag

Morning ladies well it's that time of the month again where I share with you the purchases I've made over the past month.

Firstly I just 'had' to click the button on this stunning evening bag.  Some of you may recall that I got the matching shoes in the sale last year & have been desperately trying to find a bag to match so when I spotted that they'd now released a bag in the same design - well it was a 'must have' as these shoes are fast becoming my going out beauties & will be perfect for all the Christmas celebrations & parties that are just around the corner.  Unfortunately the shoes I have are no longer available but they do have similar shoes to match the clutch here.

j crew cameron slim crop pant in four season stretch

I'm a huge fan of the cigarette pant & have worn my current Zara ones to death so when I spotted the above cropped slim pants I was keen to give them a try.  These a more of a slim fit to my old pairs & I have to say extremely flatter so I've had a clear out of all my old ones & replaced them with the navy & black versions of the above.

J Crew audrey flats in embellished tweed

As you will no doubt have spotted I love wearing flat shoes, so the above beauties quite frankly had me at hello.  Love, love, love & they really will transform the plainest of looks.

Hush turn up boyfriend jeans

Now as much as I love my skinny & cropped kick flare jeans sometimes it's nice to wear a different style that's a little bit more laid back & casual.  So when I spotted these turn up boyfriend jeans I thought they'd be perfect.  As I'm not a fan of really baggy fit & perfect more of a loose straight leg look I ordered both a size 6 & 8 to compare the two & decided on the 6 for a more tailored look.

Zara Ruffled Blouse With Contrasting Bow

This next purchase I'd spotted but had been trying to resist then as soon as I saw the gorgeous Claudia Winkleman rocking it, resistance was futile - so an easy blouse for throwing on with jeans or cigarette pants.

ASOS long oversized lambswool scarf

Now I already own this scarf in grey & love it so much that when there was a recent 20% discount code it was a no brainer - just to useful & cosy & so like the Acne version :-)

Charlotte Tilbury HOllywood Contour & Highlighter Duo

Finally I've updated my bronzer & highlighter to these after my mum tried them & has been raving about them ever since.  I love the fact that they're so easy to blend & they really do make your skin look alive & more rested.  I initially tried them without ordering the brush but actually this brush makes it so much easier to blend & look flawless that I caved & 'clicked the button'.

Back to today & for a cosy quiet Sunday at home, which I have to admit is my idea of bliss it's a simple denim & knitwear combo.

  1. Love your casual style today...so comfy and chic! Great little bag that you found...so fun to find items that match up perfectly! And the tweed flats...oh MY!

    1. Thanks Deborah & as for the shoes it would have be rude not to right?! They're such a statement & comfy too :-)
      Hope you've had a great week & are enjoying the weekend.

  2. Massimo Dutti , one of my favourite shops & I love the long scarf and ballet pumps 😍

    1. It's a gorgeous brand isn't it. I have so many pieces hanging in my wardrobe that are literally years old but the quality is so good you'd never know & it just doesn't date.
      I'm hoping ASOS bring out a navy version of the scarf as I love it.....here's hoping ;-)
