Happy Birthday to me... gosh they come around so quickly now I'm getting old! However I am out working today so this is a scheduled post... I actually wore this outfit on Wednesday, so it's a bit of a cheat, however I really wanted to share this one with you all.

As soon as I spotted this jumper in Primark, I grabbed it and put it straight in my basket. I love the colour, and the leather collar is so cute and chic, I just know I'll get tonnes of wear out of it. I decided to style it with my trusty Primark pleated leather skirt to double up on the leather look, and I think it works really well... such nice style for Autumn/Winter. 

Things like this are effortless to wear and to style, but they look like you've put a bit of effort in... any top with a collar underneath works the same, it's such a good cheat to make people think you've really thought about your styling, when you probably haven't at all! I'm going to pop back into Primark this weekend to see if they have it in any other colours, hopefully they will because I only got this one about ten days ago.

Of course I'm wearing my new boots from Clarks again, they're going to be permanently on my feet for a very long time. You know when you have some shoes that you have worn endlessly and they have gone so soft and comfy?.. Well these boots feel like that from day one, and they have a really good grip and sole on them - ideal for me, I'm forever slipping on ice in the Winter!
Saying that, it's actually been fairly mind up here of the past week... no signs of snow, yet!
