Autumn Pastels

Coat: Joseph via charity shop//Jumper: Topshop//Skirt: River Island//Shoes: Topshop

Once again River Island came up trumps- this skirt ticks all the boxes: plaid trend, good length, and very strokable material. I may have ordered the pink and blue one too- with a 25% off code from Grazia, it seemed rude not to.
I'm very happy indeed that it's Friday today- yesterday we had our AGM and awards ceremony at the Radisson Blu in Bloomsbury and it was knackering (especially wearing heels when you're not used to it)! HRH Princess Royal (Anne) is our patron so she attended, sadly I didn't get to meet her but she was within a few foot of me.
I also tried black pudding for the first time, as a canapé with scallops- not to my taste sadly, as I munched I couldn't help myself from thinking "mm this is blood. blood. yup, this is blood."

  12. You look gorgeous, I need that skirt in my life!

    Black pudding is one of the most hideous things, but I've tried the vegetarian one and it's surprisingly tasty! xo

  21. Oh your coat is wonderful and you're right about the skirt - suits you to a t!

    I must say I do love black pudding! I can't eat too much of it but it's lovely with a fry up!

  22. Haha, don't worry- black pudding isn't really blood. It used to be but it's a substitute now. I'm Scottish and used to work in a butchery so you can trust me! x

  25. I especially love how cozy and comfy yet very stylish this outfit looks to be. I'm all about practical outfits like this right now since the snow has hit us. The print on that skirt and colors are fantastic!

  26. Ewww I can't stand black pudding. Your outfit post, on the other hand, is delicious! Love the mix of textures and pastels should still be about, even in Autumn :) <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

  27. I've never ever tried black pudding - don't think I ever will! The Chinese have a similar dish, except it looks worse, sort of jelly like. Not cool.

    I love your outfit - you look super cosy!
