There's no doubt that Autumn is one of my favourite seasons (after Spring that is) so you can imagine my glee when Junction 32 got in touch and asked if I'd like to come down and style an Autumnal look. Junction 32 is somewhere I've never visited but will certainly be heading back to, with shops from Barbour to Daniel Footwear and even GAP there's something for all bargain hunters. The POA from team J32? For me and three other babin' bloggers to pull together a themed look, mine an outfit fit for an Autumnal walk, whilst keeping in budget. Three words I'm not familiar with. After a pow wow at Thorntons where many chocolates and a peppermint tea was consumed AKA shopping fuel we were eager to shop, especially with a £100 gift card burning a hole in our skinny jeans.
With just an hour to put our ensembles together it was a race against time. Shopping a whole look in an hour is definitely not my forte and while I didn't achieve a head to toe look I definitely kept on brief and within budget. When I think of an Autumnal walk I think of Sundays with Craig and Kez, Costa in hand, all while kicking a few leaves. With this in mind I knew I'd have to bag myself a coat, enter this spot on find from Mango. With a huge faux fur hood and lining, not forgetting it's practical waxed exterior this parker is a winner, and less than half the price of one I've seen in Zara. An awesome find at £79.99 non? My second and final pick was an oversized, could-have-been-borrowed-from-the-boyf check shirt from GAP at a beyond reasonable £23. £100 goes a long way at Junction 32 with my blogging companions putting together some seriously on point looks.
You might notice my last couple of snaps don't look like they've been taken in Castleford, they were in fact snapped in Norfolk where my Junction 32 look became the outfit I got engaged in! It's definitely not an ensemble I'll be forgetting in a hurry.
