Blackberry Fun and Shopping Disappointment

This weekend has been a good, homely weekend! On Saturday me and the boy went for a long walk along the canal and came across loads and loads of blackberries! We then spent ages getting covered in blackberry juice,get stung by stinging nettles and getting hook on thorns to get to the fattest blackberries! We ended up getting a massive back of them so I decided to Blackberry and Lemon Scones and although they turned out more cakey as the boy has limited baking equipment, they were still really tasty!

Today I decided I needed to go shopping for some lovely new autumn dresses and skirts but was pretty disappointed. New Look and a large selection of new things but it was all too pretty pretty and although I love looking feminine I like to have a bit of an edge. I did fall in love with these boots however and think that as soon as I get paid I will be investing in them!

I was pretty disheartened with what Topshop had on display so was only in there for a matter of minutes although I did spy this jumper that I have seen when I have gone in before. I love the little pom poms on it but I was a bit taken aback by the price of £35 so decided to by a plain jumper from Primark for £5 and will sew on some pom poms myself!

I did find a dress with pretty swallows on it and long sleeves and a mint coloured polka dot skirt from Primark but even then I struggled to find those bits. I think I will have to go back in a couple of weeks to see if more of the new Autumn stock has made it out on to the high street!
