Sixth Form Autumn Haul

Never thought I'd say this but, oh how I miss those days were I got to have a school uniform. I just started sixth form a couple of weeks ago and having to think of something to wear everyday was initially a challenge. Luckily, at my school the dress code isn't too 'formal' but not 'causal' either, more of an inbetween, so I can get away with wearing quite a bit of things I already owned. However I went browsing in shops lately and found some lovely new season items I couldn't resist buying......
WARNING: This haul may contain a bit too many berry shades so beware!

One of the very first things I bought was this Dorothy Perkins dress that costs £18 and that I instantly loved because of the sweetheart neckline, it is so flattering and the slightly flared skirt creates a lovely shape. I don't know how Dorothy Perkins do it but I've noticed all their dresses try to create a hourglass shape- it's like a signature for them. 

I have been wanting a necklace like this for ages. It took me so long to find one, but in the end I settled for this River Island oversized pearl necklace that is £10. More than what I'd usually spend for a necklace but oh well.

 Also at River Island I picked up these thick grey leggings that I know are going to be so cosy when the colder weather begins. I think they fit soo well and can be dresses up or down according to the occassion. They were £22.

This other top is from Dorohty Perkins and is made from a surprisingly thick material. This enables me to easily wear it now but even in the winter and is such a lovely colour. The fit is boxy but also formal, and just an overall versatile wear.It was £16.

I've been looking for a smart pair of shoes and I think these ones tick all of the boxes. On the tag it said they were an 'Oxblood' colour even if they nearly look black in normal daylight. However you can see it has warm undertones and as soon as you turn the flash on they go a dark red colour. Great buy,they were £14 from Dorothy Perkins.

I am aware that this is the 4th item I have bought in this shade, but I can't help myself! I think it just screams Autumn when you look at it. This jumper is supersoft, slightly loose fitting and was £19.99 from New Look.

Lastly this belt is from Primark and was £1.50. The owls on it look very cute and you could wear this to accessorise many things.

Comment on what you like best! xx
