Wearing Vintage to my last Wedding of the year.

My favourite Fall activity! 

A little peek at my sewing class project.

Happiness is....

It's October tomorrow!! I have started to add a few pieces of autumn decor around the house and can't wait to decorate properly this weekend! I still haven't grabbed a Pumpkin Spice Latte yet, it's on my Fall To Do List... I already checked off apple picking last weekend! Where are some of your favourite activities to do in Autumn?!

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!

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.

Summer Wrap Up

Old Navy Dress // Madewell Sandals // Ray-Ban Sunglasses // Leather Bag from Sorrento (similar) // Victoria Emerson Bracelet (save 25% with code 'fiveminutestyle25'

In case you missed yesterday's post featuring these gorgeous Victoria Emerson bracelets, I thought I'd show you one way I've been wearing mine! I have a lot of blue dresses in my summer wardrobe so this opal borealis wrap pairs perfectly with a lot of my summer pieces! It's almost time to pack up my summer dresses until next year though, there's been a slight chill in the air this week!

Victoria Emerson

 I have a huge collection of jewels, I love adding some sparkle to any outfit from a simple tee and jeans to a LBD! So I was super excited when Victoria Emerson offered to send some wrap bracelets my way!

First off they arrived the next day after I placed my order, so there was no waiting involved at all! 
Each bracelet arrived in it's own drawstring bag and as soon as I opened them up I was drooling, I was so impressed with the quality.

I ordered from the UK site where prices range from £18-£39 and free shipping on all orders is included! The US site also ships worldwide so you can shop from anywhere and has a bigger selection with prices ranging from $19-$42 with Free Shipping on order over $50 and they even have a vegan friendly collection too. 

I picked out the Freshwater Pearls on Natural, Mother of Pearl & Turquoise and Blue Opal Borealis on Brown Leather. It's hard to choose a favourite from these, the pearls will go with just about everything but the Blue Opal one is just a stunner!

If you'd liked to add some of these wrap bracelets to your arm candy stack (they look pretty awesome stacked up too) you can save 25% off you entire order just enter the coupon code 'fiveminutestyle25' at checkout!

 Wondering how to put on your wrap? It's super simple

Hold between your thumb and pointer finger...

Wrap, Wrap, Wrap...

And then button it up and you're ready to take on the day! 

I also have a little giveaway coming up where you can win your very own Victoria Emerson bracelet and scarf (they see more then just bracelets) so stayed tuned! 

Thank You to Victoria Emerson for partnering on this post!
