OOTD – Look Into My Eyes 🔮 (An Halloween inspired Look)

Hi, my beauty’s hope all is well? Today’s outfit is inspired by all things Halloween. Every year I look forward to this time of year, the nights getting longer, the weather getting colder. It means one thing Halloween, bonfire night and Christmas are just around the corner. With Halloween less than a week away, here’s a quick costume inspired by a mystic fortune teller. I love Halloween here are some of the reasons why ;

  • Sweets and Chocolate – I mean I’m a little piggy and scoff sweets and chocolate all year round but at Halloween, it’s acceptable to eat as much sweet and chocolate as you want, what’s not to love?
  • Experiment with bold beauty looks. – I mean when else can you walk around as a fortune teller or skeleton. Go bold or go home.
  • Play fancy dress – I love Halloween for this reason I mean who loved playing fancy dress as a child well on Halloween you still can. Every day is like fancy dress for me but it’s one day of the year I can be extra as fuck without being judged.
  • Halloween films such as Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown, and Lost Boys.
  • The supernatural – I love anything to do with the supernatural and have been obsessed with the paranormal since being young. Do you believe in ghosts? I do and have a fair few ghost stories maybe I’ll share one day.
  • Trick or Treating – I loved going trick or treating as a kid and have great memories. This year will be Ava’s first trick or treating I can’t wait but I think she might be too scared.

OOTD – Transitioning a Summer Dress Into Autumn 🍂

Hi, my beauty’s hope all is well. It’s officially autumn and the heatwave of summer is all but a distant memory so what do you do when you’re still not ready to part with your summer dress. The answer is don’t just yet, transition it into this season by wearing layers, the right footwear and accessories.

Outfit Details

Layers

The essential to transitional dressing is layers. Hey if it’s good enough for Balenciaga and Joey then its good enough for us right. Who Wore It better??

With the unpredictably that is British weather, you need twenty layers to get out of bed on the cold frosty mornings but come dinner your sweating your tits off so to survive the ever-changing weather the trick is to wear layers. Coats, jumpers, & cardigans all make great transitional wardrobe pieces. I personally love the turtleneck ribbed knitted jumpers from Primark a bargain at only £6 and come in a range of colours and are a staple in Autumn dressing. Wear under summer dresses like I have in this OOTD or under pinafore dresses.

  1. Missguided Black Shaggy Cropped Cardigan 2. New Look Mustard Rib Roll Neck Top 3. Pimkie faux Leather Biker jacket

Footwear

My favourite thing about the weather getting colder is that it’s no longer Sandal season and is now Boot season not that I ever really stopped wearing mine. Ankle boots look great paired with dresses and add that bit of extra warmth to your feet because there’s there’s nothing worse than cold and wet feet.

  1. New Look Snake Print Boots 2. Boohoo Stud & Buckle Boots 3. Miss Selfridge Patent Buckle Red Boots

Socks and sandals are now not just for tourists but have made a comeback seen on the catwalks and the street style stars. So if your feeling brave and not ready to say bye to your summer sandals just yet maybe you could try this.

Accessories

It’s time to dust the dust off your beanies as Autumn is officially beanie season. Accessories such as hats. gloves and scarfs are not also great for helping you to keep warm and for layering but can also make an outfit really pop. I think the beret I’m wearing in this OOTD really makes my outfit stand out more.

  1. Asos Design Red Wool Beret 2. Asos Design Leather Look Gloves with Pearls & Studs 3. Pimkie Tartan Reversible Scarf
