No place I'd rather be.

OOTD #41

Hello everyone, I hope you're having a lovely Sunday.
I was recently contacted by House of Fraser asking if I would like to be part of their `Inspired by mum` blogger challenge for Mothers day. The prize is a wonderful £100 worth of vouchers- so well worth entering I'm sure you'll agree!

Appoligies for my weird expressions, I wasn't feeling 100% but I was determined to get these pictures!

Jacket- Primark 
Necklace- Mum's
Cami top- Mum's 
Watch- Urban Outfitters
Jeans- Primark
Bag- Mum's (vintage)
Boots- Topshop (here)

As you might be able to tell, I took this challenge as a licence to raid my Mum's wardrobe!

The first thing I pounced on was this bag; I love the velvet and brocade combination and it the perfect size to be used as a clutch. The little tassel is so sweet as well. 

I've featured this necklace a few times on the blog now, I love the elegance it lends to any outfit. It's the perfect length for me and it's a fab piece of jewelry to just throw on and know it will look lovely. 

This jacket comes as a sneak peak form my next haul- I thought the check pattern was the perfect way to break up an otherwise all black outfit (not actually like me at all) I've seen this on lots of blogs so I was so happy when I spotted in in primark in my size.

I deiced on this gorgeous textured turquoise glitter polish form M&S. It's a lovely spring shade and catches the light so perfectly.- I'm just dreading the removal!

I went for my Urban Outfitters watch, I don't wear it enough considering I love love love it. 

Oh dear, I'm obsessed with these boots- expect to see them a whole lot more! I would finish this whole look of with a generous spritz of YSL's Manifesto from  House of Fraser, a perfume me and my mum would happily both wear :) 

What do you think of this outfit? What look is inspired by your mum?
