Double Denim Halloween Fun

On Sunday, we were invited to Ferguson Flowers on the Belmont Road, Belfast for a special Halloween fun day. It was all about the kids - with Halloween floral arrangements that the kids could make themselves, dunking for apples, cupcakes and dressing up. 
Me? I dressed up in Double Denim for the occasion..
I took my inspiration from the lovely Michelle over at MyFashionable40's, I used a jumper and a scarf to break up the denim a bit. I also think the patchwork denim gives some contrast too.
As it was a freezing cold day, I put my new navy BHS coat over. This is a super bargainous coat that I was lucky enough to pick up on a 20% off day. It feels so soft and I was asked today if it was cashmere! Unfortunately not - you get what you pay for but it's just the right cut of navy coat I was looking for. I am wearing a size 8 - they come up big.
Coat - BHS
Patchwork Jeans - ASOS
Suede Ankle Boots  - Mango (similar here)
Handbag - Fiorelli (old)
Scarf - SGS Shop (also available in red & cream/orange)
Jumper - H&M (AW12 - similar here)
Denim Shirt - TU at Sainsburys (AW12 - similar here)
The kids really enjoyed the day - even my oldest who's a bit too cool for all this Halloween dressing up..but not for dunking apples clearly!
and the girls made two gorgeous floral displays that they gave to their Granny later on.
Will leave you with this cool pumpkin that was displayed in the shop - just the inspiration I need for this year's creation...
Happy Halloween - hope you have a good one

    1. Me either Joanna! I didn't take the labels off for a couple of days. But I think with the right outfit, they look fab. I feel like they need some navy in the outfit - I've tried with black but there's too much clash for me. You've got to try them! Ax

  14. Hi Avril,
    I love your outfit. Simple yet chic! That coat is really stylish, looks like it could be a French connection one. Will definitely be placing another scarf order v soon. I would love a bag like this one you have in these pics. Do you know if I can still get one like this from anywhere, or something similar?
