Heatons AW13 Lookbook - in the flesh!

Well, the hen took its toll - you probably guessed with the lack of blogging for almost a week! It was such good fun with a gang of lovely girls and I managed to remember to take a couple of pictures that I'll share soon. 
I came home to back to school, last minute prep and the pre-September massive house clear out that I always have to do this time of the blog has suffered. Lots of blog posts to catch up on - prepare to be ambushed for a few days to make up for my absence!

First up, I took a trip up to Heatons to see their AW13 range after receiving their lookbook in the post.
I've featured Heatons on the blog before and their skinny indigo jeans are my most worn jeans in my wardrobe this year. At £12 a pair, that's pretty good going!

Not all of the range is in-stores yet but I still spotted a few great items like these dark brown ankle boots for £15 and this dipped hem navy sparkly jumper:
Still loving their denim - these dark blue jeggings and black skinny jeans are both great value wardrobe staples.
 And this spotted blouse with stud detail on the collar comes in two different patterns. This burgundy version is lovely..
I did buy a few bits and pieces - well you'd have to at those prices. As well as some school supplies for the kids (Minnie Mouse & Hello Kitty feature heavily!) and some contact for wrapping school books (on 3 for 2!), I fell for the cage print dress big time..
 First up, I tried on its own (with heavy legs are so white!) but then tried it in a more realistic outfit for me - black tights & ankle boots
And then a smarter option for the office or for a more formal occasion...and a close up of the print..
A really pretty dress for just £15 - with sleeves too! Currently, Heatons deliver to the island of Ireland (NI/ROI) and have free postage with all orders of £30/€30. Worth checking out in store too on the guise that you're looking some last minute school supplies :)

I'll be back very soon with my hen outfits but will leave you with my favourite images from the Heatons AW13 Look Book! Hope you're all having a good week,
