Transitional Season Dressing in Leather and Chambray Denim, Plus some Autumn Shoe Buys!!

Hi everyone!! As I sit here typing, the weather is really sunny out-not hot and just nice enough for the start of September. On Sunday, London was deliciously warm with cloudy spots here and there, which was why I decided to wear my leather biker jacket as a chance cover up:



Before I went to Worthing, I found this chambray denim sleeveless dress by Oasis from the British Heart Foundation charity shop for £7.50. It's been worn regularly during August and I'll keep it in the wardrobe to pair with a sweater, tights and boots for Autumn too:



When I last met my gorgeous blogger friend Michelle of MyFashionable40s, she asked me if I was going to dip into the skate shoe trend. I remember my answer which at the time was purely seasonally influenced-it was the heart of Summer, but a typical torrential rainy day and I had at that time said to her I doubt it very much-no, in other words!! Well, it's always the way when you say no, you mull it over until you think and say, well yes! So last week the hunt was on for some Autumn appropriate styled ones.

My first pair are these navy leopardprint ones which I picked from T K Maxx at the weekend, a real bargain for just £14.99:
 

These are the buys I love-the ones where you see something and think yes-that's exactly what I'm looking for-perfect style, colour and pattern and not only that, totally versatility with the rest of my wardrobe too. 

My next find was in Primark earlier today and again a total bargain-just £8 and ticking all the above said boxes again, so I think my entry into the skate shoe trend has now been fully fulfilled!


Many bloggers are compiling their Autumn wishlists and I'm thankful that I'm not really after many things- I really just want a black merino wool crew neck sweater, possibly a grey one too. Also a couple of fine wool scarves too, in leopardprint and tartan.

School term is already with us- my youngest is back tomorrow for his final year at secondary school before college!! So proud of him as he took his Science GCSE a year early and got an 'A'!! I'm hoping this is a sign of things to come for his last year, so despite his cast still not being off his broken wrist it's a good start to 'back to school'!! 

Thanks as always for your continued support, reading and commenting- unfortunately I don't blog that regularly but through bloglovin and my own feed I do regularly read what you are all up to!! 
Wishing you all a sunny week and a lovely weekend to come, whatever you are up to!!

As always that dress was such a clever find, love it with your leather jacket....very cool!! It's funny when a trend (skaters) that you are unsure about, becomes a firm favourite! Helen xx

Look at you ...! Happy that you are starting September with mild weather and looking so freaking cute!
In fact, I'm all inspired to add some little kicks like these or something similar to my shoe list. I'm so short and square I'm not sure anyone will ever see me in them, but you've convinced me that I should try.
Happy Autumn, Gorgeous!

Hi Sharon - Your blog is so inspiring but I'm sorry that we don't meet up at fairs any more. I've retreated to just a few West Country fairs for my vintage and retro.

You look gorgeous in your chambray denim dress and sandals. I didn't know what skater shoes were - I'd call them slip ons!

I'm absolutely not compiling an autumn wardrobe just yet as having spent the entire Spring in Australia I'm now off to the south of France for a couple of weeks. But I have bought three pairs of shoes in the sales. Including some really stylish and comfortable leopard print classic trainers/tennis shoes for only £11 in the Sports Direct sale.

Btw I don't blog anymore.Cecilex
