Autumn has Arrived!

Hi there my friends, how’s you weekend gone?

Apologies for such a late post! My weekend ran away with me as did Monday, so for this week it's posted on a Tuesday!

Didn’t the weekend go fast? I think it’s because I was out on Saturday to celebrate a friends birthday for a bottomless brunch at 100 Wardour Street! It literally was “bottomless” as the glasses were filled at every opportunity! The food was good too, just enough and really tasty. I chose avocado on sour dough with poached eggs (my usual pre-flight breakfast - so thought I should be flying off somewhere nice! 😂) I followed this with a main course of Korean spiced chicken burger with chips. I managed to eat most of the chicken and chips and left the roll, wasn’t I good!

I had a dance too, the music was typical ... err I'm not sure, but it had a good vibe.  😆 Everyone there was enjoying the fun and dancing, it seemed strange when we left that it was still light!  Another couple of drinks in a nearby bar followed, before catching the fast train home. It was a slow day on Sunday, as you can imagine and the family roast was much appreciated. I caught up on Strictly too, which rounded my weekend off nicely.  What did you get up to?

With the weather still really changeable - wet and windy days, followed by sunshine and milder temperatures, but it's still noticeably Autumnal.  There's plenty of leaves fallen already and lots of berry's on the bushes and trees.  I do like having seasons, but Autumn is one of my favourites.  The colour palettes are fabulous and I like to blend in with the surrounding hues, so today's outfit fits in beautifully.

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.

Having worked with Nomads Clothing in the past, I was delighted when they approached me to to style a couple of pieces from their latest new in range.  I'm keen to share their ethical and fair trade values which you can view here and have been delighted with the quality and unusual styles and prints they offer.

My tie belt midi dress* is going to be a firm favourite for Mummabstylish.  I picked my heeled boots for today's look, but would be happy to wear my chunky boots, trainers or the pair of chunky loafers I have my eye on from M & S (watch this space for them).

Boasting a scoop neck and long sleeves the midi dress is made from 100% Lenzing Ecovero Jersey that has a beautiful drape and super soft feel.  This striking dress can also be dressed up with heels and a statement necklace for a lunch or dinner date.

It also brags side splits and hidden pockets making this beauty both practical and stylish.  It fits true to size, so you can be happy to buy your usual size.  Nomads also offer a tunic dress & printed scarf in the same Kimono print, as well as an extensive selection of dresses, tops, jumpers and outerwear in a multitude of patterns and designs.  They have the added bonus of a whole range of colours and styles that will produce a unique capsule collection just begging to be bought.

I was pleased to find this heavy scarf that you can see easily complimented the dress.  The colour match is so pleasing on the eye and I was excited to show off my pattern clashing skills today.  My hot spicy biker jacket makes the orange stand out and I teamed my tan slouch boots to tie it all together.

Do checkout my previous Nomads picks like my white maxi, this striking two piece & my charming jumpsuit.

Many thanks for joining me today, have a super week. You have one less day to wait for the #chicandstylish #linkup, I'll catch you on Thursday. X
Bye, bye X
