What I wore Sunday… my uniform for this time of the year

Autumn for me is all about layering. I love the idea of putting on few layers of different fabrics that will keep me nice and warm. I like to mix texture and colours to add my personal stamp on what I have decided to wear that day.

The outfit that you see today is not particularly ground-breaking but representative on how I like to dress these days. I want to feel comfortable but put together at the same time… Favourite colours of greys, blues and khaki are my go to combination !

To make this outfit a little bit more ‘special’ I added a brooch that I bought some time ago and did not have a chance to wear much. I think brooches are such handy pieces of jewellery that add that something extra to almost every outfit. The brooch can be silver or gold, designer or not, choices are endless !

So without further delay that is what I wore Sunday !

What I wore Sunday… my world

I have spoken about living in the countryside quite a few times already but I will come back to it one more time… The sense of peace and comfort is something that I treasure the most. No busy roads, traffic, trams and crowds. That is why I love where I am so much…

I need to have my own space and although I always knew that, it took me quite some time to figure out that I need to be outside of the city. The hassle and bustle are good for a day but I do think it is for me on the daily basis.

For this autumnal walk, I have decided to wear my favourite coat I got two seasons ago. It is a pricy thing but so worth the money in my opinion. Parka coats are incredible for winter as they are excellent for layering and they come with a hood which is very needed if live in England…

As I wanted to be warm, I added the simplest of cashmere sweaters you can think of. It is thick enough to keep me comfortable without feeling bulky and impractical. Simplicity is the key for me and I hope you will like what I have put together.

That is the outfit for this what I wore Sunday !!

Parka Burberry (budget friendly option)

Discount shopping anybody ? … Bicester !

I am sure we all agree that everybody likes a bargain ! I hate wasting money and by wasting money I mean buying something not worth the money of poor quality or unnecessary.

Quite some time ago a good friend of ours introduced me to the outlet shopping village called Bicester. It is enormous and as the official website tells me it has more that 130 fashion boutiques. All the shops are descent space and the selection of goods is surprisingly current. The choice is endless as both high street and high-end are represented here. My favourite brands present in Bicester will include All Saints, Barbour, Tommy Hilfiger as well as Dior, YSL or Burberry.

Bicester is an extremely interesting place to shop for one more reason (apart from the minimum discount of 30 % from the retail price up to 70 % during sales). You are not allowed to film or photograph inside the shops only to keep you guessing of what stock shops have ? It is unpredictable experience and you will never know if you are able to find anything you like or your trip will be unsuccessful.

Transport links are very convenient as the village is located in close proximity to Oxford. You can travel from London by train, bus or car. More details are available on Bicester official website which is linked here.

It is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. The only think I cannot stress enough is the unpredictability of the shopping experience. Stock will change very frequently so be patient and be prepared to go home without all of the items on your shopping list !

Taking this opportunity I would like to share some of my best finds with the brief description of the item and some advice. So let’s begin !

One of my oldest purchases and the most loved beautiful dress by L.K.Bennett worn to the wedding of my friends back in 2015 ! I got is as a sample sale item and paid less than £50 for it !

Finding comfortable bag that is as light as the feather is tricky… This handbag delivers that and is of beautiful quality by italian brand Bottega Veneta. I bought it back quite some time ago and it was definitely money well spent !

The most recent purchase Maje dress with detachable collar. It was waiting for me in the store with only one left in my size and over 50 % off the original price.

Handbag that I was searching for over the year… When I discovered it, it was already sold out. Never in my life I would have guessed that I find it in Bicester. It is by Tod’s and when the shopping assistant brought me this burgundy one I started jumping up and down. Price reduction was 50 % and in my opinion it was a complete bargain !

Finally, my most recent jeans purchase (more pictures available here and here). They are by Belstaff the brand my husband loves. The quality of the coating on that pair is unbelievable and with 60 % off it was difficult to complain !

That is just a few examples of the stars you can find in the village. Whatever your budget is, I am sure you will find something to suit your needs.

Do you know of any other outlet villages around the world worth visiting ? If so, please let me know !

As usual, many thanks for stopping by !
