Goodbye September

Hi everyone! I'm back, after an unexpected break from blogging, to share one of my last summery outfits with you. My routine has been quite hectic lately and I've really missed blogging regularly, so it's lovely to get back to it, now I have some images to share with you. Slowly but surely, I'm seeing signs of autumn around me, but for now I'm choosing to ignore them, as I'm not prepared to embrace colder weather just yet. So please just humour me, as I intend to delude myself for as long as I can.  

For this outfit, I'm wearing a bird print peplum top, which I wore after quite a long time, with dark blue jeans and my copper-toned ballet pumps, as an alternative to my beloved trainers. I love the dark background of the top with the summery bird print, as I think the colour scheme makes the top more wearable and versatile, for a stylish everyday look. I wore my Alecta sunglasses with leopard print round frames, which are from Foster Grant kids collection would you believe?! (They were a bargain at the time, and incredibly, they now cost just £1.75 on the Foster Grant website if you're after a pair). I couldn't find a style of sunglasses I liked this much elsewhere, as I find that larger frames don't really suit my face, so I was glad to find these ones purely by chance in a supermarket, and surprisingly they fitted me despite being from the kids collection. 

I wanted to capture some images of these red flowers while they were still in bloom, and make the most of late September before the days get shorter. What do you think of this look? Are you a fan of peplum tops? I like them a lot, as the fit and flare shape is really flattering and not too clingy.  
Midway through my photo session, I was upstaged by this squirrel.
