Goodbye Summer

Before the first day of Autumn officially arrived last week I wanted to wear this skirt again so I could share it with you all! This was a Zara sale find but I have linked a super similar one! I wore this to a day of my sewing class (I'll share more on that soon) and after a long day of cutting and stitching we headed for dinner in Lavenham. There are just the cutest houses all around the town and I stopped by this one as it matched my skirt! You might remember this post from a couple of years ago? Well that dream pink house is in Lavenham too and you know I had to walk past it again and drool this year too.
Goodbye Summer 2016, you've been a wonderful one but I am ready for my knits and blanket scarves now!

Happy Friday Again!! I am super excited that I am headed to a two day sewing class next week and I am going to try my hand at dress making! If I'm successful you'll be able to see my creation on the blog soon! It's also my little sister's birthday tomorrow, so I can't wait to celebrate with her! What weekend plans does everyone else have?

Transitional Scarves + A Giveaway

& Bracelet - save 25% with code 'fiveminutestyle25' 

I have a huge scarf collection, they are one of my favourite accessories and that is why I am always so happy when autumn rolls around and I can start to add more of them back into rotation. Victoria Emerson has a wonderful selection of scarves, currently on sale too, that make transitioning into fall easy. These scarves are lightweight so they are perfect for layering up when there is a chill in the air and they also add a pop of colour to a simple jeans and a tee outfit! This Navy & Rose Print Floral Scarf is my favourite as I start to wear a lot of denim when the weather starts to cool down and I think it pairs perfectly.

And now for a little giveaway! Want to own your very own Victoria Emerson Scarf and Wrap Bracelet? I am giving you the chance to win this gorgeous navy & white tassel scarf and a classic pearl wrap bracelet and a $50 gift card that can be spent on the US site which ships worldwide! Yep that means you can enter no matter where you are in the world!

To enter head on over to my Instagram page later today, 'spark1988' and follow my account along with the Victoria Emerson Instagram page here and then simply like the giveaway post (which will be the above picture). It's that simple but for an extra entry you can leave a blog comment telling me what you would spend the $50 gift card on and there'll be some extra ways to enter over on Instagram too! The giveaway will run until September 28th 2016 11:59pm BST.


Thank You to Victoria Emerson for partnering on this post!
