A Little A / W Haul

Ahhh Autumn. Cosy nights in, hot drinks and of course A NEW WARDROBE!! You might have read my post on the arrival of autumn a few weeks ago and if not, you can read it here. As much as I look forward to snuggling up by the fire with a good book, I enjoy snuggling up by the fire with a good book in nice cosy clothes even more! So I couldn't resist a good shop to buy a few new cosy knits, jeans and tops! Just a quick warning, this will be a very photo heavy post!

(Getting a little arty and testing out the 'blur' effects on my camera...haha)

So, first of I bought these HEAVENLY socks from good old Primark-not only are they very seasonal-they are fleece lined - and ahh - my feet are in foot-heaven!

Again, in Primark I picked up these tights. But, let me warn you, these are simply not 'just' tights - these are the-best-tights-in-the-world. If you haven't tried these out yet, I insist you get yourself down to your nearest Primark A-S-A-P! They are 300 dernier (300 dernier YES THAT'S RIGHT - 300 DERNIER!! - even I had to double take!), as well as fleece lined, ahhh - words cannot even explain how yummy these are on your legs  - almost like snuggled up pigs in blankets! 

Next up I picked up this cute top from Primark - its perfect for those days when its too hot to wear a jumper yet too cold too put on a t-shirt. For only £6, its comparable to some of the jumpers I've seen in Topshop, New Look and River Island!

When I spotted this top I simply had to have it - how cute-yet cool-vintage is it! Not only do I love drinking this stuff, the top is in the kind of baseball/mis-matched colour style which is really popular lately so I let out a big sigh of relief when they had in my size - phew!

The last thing that entered by basket in Primark was this oversized knit in navy/black. Do I need to say more? It's practical, cosy, and looks perfect for autumn with a pair of jeans and ankle boots!

My next stop was H&M. Most of the time, I sling on my favourite pair of jeans, ankle boots and slouchy top, so when I saw this super soft grey slouchy top in H&M I had to have it. It looks great on with jeans, my parka jacket and converse/ankle boots and is effortless - thumbs up from me!

Winter coats. The debate as to what one we should all buy has been going on for a loooonggg while now - but when in H&M the other day I spotted this gorgeous Parka Jacket. Unfortunately, they didn't have in my size so when i got home I ran upstairs to my laptop and ordered it straight away! And I do not regret doing so one bit. I think this is the first winter coat I will actually enjoy wearing - coats always seemed to make me look like a frumpy elepphant before and a little bit tedious, but *touch wood* this coat is perfect!

Again in H&M, I picked up these little beauties. After many ums and erms, I finally built up the courage and now I'm in love! These pictures do not do them justice - they are such a lovely deep plum colour that is perfect for autumn.

After weeks of internet drooling, I FINALLY picked up a pair of black ankle boots from New Look - aren't they amazing?!? Ahhhh - I know the entire bloggershere got a little too excited about ankle boots - so let me know what you think of these!

 Finally I popped into Matalan and saw this super-cosy jumper in the teen section! I think this may be one of the softest jumpers I have ever worn - its fleece lined too! It's perfect for those dressed-down days with a pair of leggings, a parka and converse!

Woahh, so that post turned out a little longer than expected! Have you been on an A / W shop lately! Let me know in the comments what you bought and what you think of the bits I picked up!

Much love, Lauryn x
