Wednesday Winners

It's Wednesday again already and that means another round of Wednesday Winners to share with you all. With all the A/W lines arriving in stores it's been a bit all over the place - much like the weather the stores can't seem to make up their minds whether it's summer or winter and so the picks this week are a mixture of both!

Chelsea's Picks:

Whilst I do think that American Apparal prices seemed to have soared over the last year, I couldn't help but be drawn to this skirt. I love the colour (but it wouldn't be a problem if I didn't since it's available in over 20 difference shades). I also love the length and the optional belt. I'd pair it with cute flats for a casual but cool daytime look.

I love costume jewellery - although this is pretty expensive for costume jewellery. The burgundy coloured jewels play up to my love of this season's hit colour and I really love the little bow effect. A matching bracelet is also available.

3. H&M cable knit jumper (£14.99)

Naomi actually sent me a link to this jumper as she knows I am obsessed with burgundy and I stole it for my picks! Sorry Nams! I really like cable knit too so this is ideal! If you're not as into burgundy as me, then fret not - it's also available in coral, navy, yellow, red and a light 'glitter' brown that I'm very tempted by!

I bought a new top from Topshop not long ago and it was soooo creased that I had to iron it right away. As soon as I touched it with the iron it frazzled (even though the iron was on low!) Anyway, Topshop wouldn't exchange it as they clearly thought my ironing was to blame (deffo not the case!) so I have been looking for some cute shorts to tuck the top into and hide the burn. So, in conclusion, these cute shorts would be ideal with the burnt top!

I honestly think I may be even more obsessed with collars than burgundy and I really love this collared dress. Flower detail, pleats and hi-low hem - music to my ears!

Last week, my husband noted I liked collars after reading the blog and bought me a cute collared shirt from Topshop. If he's reading now - go for the necklace ;-)

Naomi's Picks:

I love the lace and ombre effect to this dress along with the capped sleeves and cute little bow. Dress with some nude heels I recks!

I love everything about this top: the lace, the colour, the fishtail, the peplum, the sheer back and the price. I will definitely be purchasing this as a dress down or dress up little number! 

I used to shrug Hobbs off as a 'mum's shop' but I love their NW3 range! This vintage cable knit cardigan in 'porridge' can be worn with jeans, dresses, shorts, skirts, leggings - basically anything. It is totes grandad chic!   

I have been looking for a leather skirt, but when I saw these shorts I loved them. I like the high waist and vintage-renewal look. These will look good with chunky knitwear (i.e. the above cardigan) and some biker boots. PS delivery only £1 if you enter code 'shweet' at checkout!

5. H&M Collar £14.99
This collar took my breathe away! I absolutely love the pearls and diamantes. This could be worn with any top or dress to add instant cuteness - espesh the mink lace top and black/white lace dress in my picks!
