Outfit - A Day In Bruges

It's been a little while since I've managed an outfit post on here, boy oh boy finding decent pictures can be a tricky thing! I have bought a bunch of nice new dresses recently though so thought I better show one of them off to justify so many purchases! 

We had a little visit to Bruges last week and managed to find a gap in between rain showers to take some pictures.

The dress is my very first Emily and Fin dress! I've been after one of these for a little while as they have so many beautiful designs so when I saw Aspire Clothing was having a huge sale I got a bit giddy! This Abigail style dress in the yellow heart leaf print is pretty much autumn in a dress and helps ease me into the realisation that summer has said goodbye to us. It's a gorgeous frock and can definitely imagine it to be the first of many.

The shoes are also new - once again a sale buy, this time from Rocket Dog who just make the most comfortable shoes. I wore these for hours and miles on their first outing that day without a hint of rubbing or soreness - I really like their kind of clunky nerdiness and think they'll go well with a whole bunch of autumn outfits - there's also a teensy bit of a heel which is nice 'cos I'm not the tallest, but not enough to make walking in any way difficult. 

You may be spotting a theme here, but the bag is new, and was in the sale! I've walked past the Ness store in York a whole bunch of times, always stopping for a bit of a gaze in their window - but it wasn't until I saw this lovely bag - with a healthy discount - in the window that I finally made a purchase! I don't even think I have to justify the purchase in any other way than saying 'it has tea cups on it'.

Finally, my Pterodactyl necklace was - you guessed it! - a recent sale buy! I got carried away buying loads of cheap note books on the lovely Ohh Deer site recently and thought I'd add this to my basket to help bump me up to the 'free delivery' cost (I also bought a load of chocolate - yum!) - isn't he lovely? I do forget to accessorise most of the time despite having some lovely pieces so I really need to make more of an effort in that area!

I really have been treating myself reccently, haven't I?! The New Look cardigan is old and one of my most-worn things, if that helps balance it out! 

Have you admitted Summer is over yet or are you still holding out hope for some last bits of sunshine?
