Find It In Everything: Autumn 2014

Winter is here which means it's time for another ' Find It In Everything ' post. Autumn has always been my favourite time of year so I couldn't wait to start snapping away. Below is a small selection of some of my favourite pictures taken during those gorgeous Autumn months. This will be my last post of 2014, so I want to wish you all a great festive break with lots of food and fine company. See you on the other side! Love and hugs, Isha xxx

Snug, as a Bug, in a Rug

I absolutely love the Autumn/ Winter months, but being a naturally hot person often means and that I'm walking around in cardigans way into December. Coats have always made me a sweaty mess and standard cardigans leave me feeling overly chilly, so I needed to find a healthy medium.  I visited Next a good few months back during the slow transition between Summer and Autumn, and tried on a few coats that caught my eye. Unfortunately, I could already feel the sweats coming on so I started trudging out of the store, ruing my high body temperature, before bumping into this blanket wrap. I tried it on, loved it, and made a mental note for the Autumn/ Winter transition. Eventually, I did order this gorgeous wrap and I haven't looked back.  Blanket Wrap: Next The wrap is mainly made out of Polysester (56%), so is a lot lighter than a standard coat would be. I'm able to feel nice and warm without baking, and the black and white woven pattern means it goes wit

Flower Vixen

Being a vintage bunny means I'm always on the lookout for new exciting brands that I can indulge in my 40s/50s yearnings. Voodoo Vixen have been around for a little while but when they teamed up with Simply Be to showcase some dresses from their new plus size range, I couldn't resist. I ordered two dresses; this is the first of them and I wore it to Simply Be's Spring/Summer 2015 Preview event: Dress: Voodoo Vixen (via Simply Be ) Cardigan: H&M Leggings: South (via Very ) Shoes: Simply Be One thing I was concerned about was the fit as I'm not usually a fan of dual sizing. In my experience, dual sizing has often resulted in an ill-fitting garment, particularly around the bust and waist, and as someone who wears 18-20, I was really unsure on the size I should order. In the end I went for 16/18 and held my breath as I tried it on, but I needn't have worried because it is the most perfect fit. It genuinely feels like a custom made d

Bronze Sparkle

I bought this dress way back when at the beginning of Summer, but because my wardrobe is forever overflowing, I never got an opportunity to wear it until now. I wore this gem for another fun filled day in Nottingham with my dear friend, Char . If you saw my last post about my first visit, you'll know that I absolutely fell in love with the city and simply couldn't wait to get back, so I jumped at the chance to head down there again a mere few weeks later.  We had food at Frankie and Benny’s (uh-mazing!) and then just pottered around, diving into as many new nooks and crannies as we could find. I wanted something a little dressy but also with a mix of casual as I knew we’d be walking around the city.

The delicate flower print with gorgeous pleats on the skirt are so swoon worthy, and it's so floa

Pixie Red Riding Hood

It's awful, but I have rarely travelled around the UK. There's no real reason for this other than not really having a need to do so, but when my dear friend Charlotte left the bright lights of London to study in Nottingham, I simply couldn't wait to buy my ticket for a visit. There was rain in the air when I first arrived but this soon abated and we had nothing but gorgeous sunshine and blue skies for the remainder of the day. We mainly stayed in the city centre and what struck me the most was the stunning architecture; people very rarely look up but I find that most architectural beauty is up with the clouds. Here are just a few of my favourite shots from the day: We had such a brill day with lots of exploring, food and a bit of shopping . I wanted to wear something fabulous for the day and I turned to one of my absolutely favourite brands: Dress: Collectif Shrug: eBay Leggings: South (via Very ) Shoes: Simply Be This wo
