The weather is certainly getting colder here in the South Wales valleys and it’s time to ditch my leggings and converse. When JD Williams got in touch and asked me if I would like to review some of their Autumn looks I was more than happy to do so.
I am in such a fashion mum rut and tend to go for leggings , tops and trainers. I really fancy a change and think dresses , tights and boots need to make a comeback. I am getting so bored of this and just want to dress fashionably again. My self-confidence has taken a nose dive since being a Mum and I really need to find myself again.
I had a good browse around the site and was spoilt for choice , there are so many beautiful bits to choose from. I decided to go for a plain dress that can be dressed up or down , a cardigan that is pretty versatile and can be worn with everything , a shirt dress and my Autumn staple tights.
The ordering process was easy and delivery was quick I had my items within three/four days of ordering , they arrived well packaged too. There are loads of delivery options on the site , you can go for standard delivery , next day , nominated day or you can pay a yearly fee of £9.95 for unlimited delivery every time which is just great!
The pieces I went for –
Blue tie waist shirt dress
I love this as its so versatile as can be worn as a dress or a shirt open over jeans etc. It is great to throw on with tights and boots too which can be worn in the day for casual wear or dressed up at night. The quality was great and made from a lovely soft cotton which is built to wear well. This is £10.00 in the sale at the moment.
Florence Chelsea boot in patent
I’m totally in love with these ! They are a timeless pair of boots and I love patent as it always wears well and lasts too. They look super on trend too and will go with just about anything casual or dressed up. I have worn them a few times and they are also really comfy. For £25.00 you can’t go wrong.
Figleaves curve 150 denier tights
These are so comfy and have a velvet touch which I loved. They are perfect for teaming with shirt dresses or just a dress or skirt , I can see these getting a lot of wear! They were really warm and cosy too which is just what I need in this valleys weather! They are a bargain too at just £12.00.
Black ribbed boyfriend cardigan
I love a black cardigan as it goes with any outfit and is always handy to throw on or take in our bag. I loved the material of this one it is slightly shiny so adds a bit of edge to any outfit. The quality is great too and it washes really well which is a relief as some cardigans don’t make it past the first wash. This is also on sale at the moment for £8.00.
Black long sleeve swing dress
I love a black dress as they are fab to dress up with tights and nice jewellery or dress down with jeans and a cardigan. This dress was so comfy and I loved the fit. This will also be one of my wardrobe staples this Autumn. £15.00 was also such a good price too for a stable piece.
