Friday - Burgundy Jumper two ways.

Woah, how did Friday get here so quick - that's nice but scary too.

What have you been up to today?

It's nearly the weekend, we all know that means it's nearly wine o'clock!

The usual chores done today, a visit to a couple of shops with youngest daughter, with no sign of my princess today- never mind she'll be nanny and granddad's girl on Sunday Yay!

Thought I'd show you two ways I've styled my new H and M burgundy jumper.  I bought this last week, but once home and about to be worn over white jeans I noticed a silly little hole in the arm,  so I changed this earlier on this week and I'm pleased to say this one is perfect. 
Burgundy is so in for this season, and being a colour that most people can wear, it's a good option whatever garment you buy.  With a cute neck tie, whether tied up close to the collar line or hanging looser for a more casual look.  Coming in at a bargain price of £14.99,  It's a fine knit jumper so it can be worn over a t shirt for extra warmth, or maybe with a gilet/sleeveless jacket.  Check it out here at H and M.

May I present my first offering........

Teamed with a previous season floral pencil skirt from George at Asda, finishing below the knee, with a split at the back in colours of black, blue, pink and burgundy.  This along with black patent flat pumps which have a black faux suede bow on the front for the extra bit of detail. I felt smart and in keeping with the Autumnal weather in this classic outfit.

Second outfit to show.....

The only other option for me had to be jeans - namely skinny jeans in a dark denim. 
This pair are from Zara, they've got a fabulous selection in most branches.  I actually got these last winter in the sale for about £12!  Always worth a visit to check out what they've got and what price they are!
I've been seeing plenty of burgundy, with jeans and leopard print 'something' - so I've picked these old season court shoes from M and S for my leopard print 'something', but I have spotted these Double strap leopard print beauties from M and S too.
Every body's muse at the moment- are they yours too?

 My little Roxy loves to get in on the act!

Are you in love with this colour?  What have you got in your wardrobe that's burgundy?

Linking up with Shelbee from Shelbee on the edge.
