Getting Autumnal With Apricot

Apricot is a great brand that was created in 2007, when they first started up they wanted to appeal to both Mother and Daughter creating well made staples at purse friendly prices! A few weeks a go i signed up to an awesome company called Type The Hype run by a lovely lady called Gemma - this is a fantastic blogging network which helps bloggers and brands to work together.  Apricot where looking for Mother / Daughter posts and this instantly appealed to me, i was super excited when i got chosen and really looking forward to featuring my lovely Mum on my blog! 

Being really close to my Mum we sometimes like to swap clothes, we decided to pick out two pieces that we both liked so that we can swap in the future. I really love that you could go on a shopping trip together and both pick out pieces from the same store!

After perusing the Apricot website and falling in love with a few different options we managed to narrow it down to these two items, as both me and my mum shop in Apricot anyway it wasn't hard to find something we both liked. We put our order in straight away, chose standard delivery and awaited for our package. I must say i was very impressed with how fast their standard delivery arrived, i had my package within 2 days after ordering! 

I decided to go for an autumnal dress and picked out this black and brown foliage print tea dress*, i wanted something i could dress down or dress up with adding different accessories. I'm really into casual dresses and tights this winter as they look a little more smart than just a jumper and jeans. I paired this with my leather jacket, a pair of thick black tights, black heeled buckled boots and a platted belt. I really loved the quality of this dress, it was double lined so i didn't feel the need to wear another layer underneath, it also had pleated detail and lovely turned up sleeves. Overall just a lovely little dress! Apricot actually sell this in two different colours, so if you didn't like the mustard browns you can go for a more of a multi coloured bright pattern.

My Mum picked out this gorgeous grey and black colour block poncho* and paired it with a pair of skinny jeans also from apricot, some wedged knee high boots, a black polar neck jumper and a long beaded necklace to finish the look, this is a perfect autumnal look. This poncho is so warm and snuggly and is really made well, its a very nice thick material which keeps your warm. They also make this in a few different colours, if the black / grey wasn't for you.

We where both really impressed with both the prices and also quality of these two pieces and will carry on shopping at Apricot for years to come! Thank you Apricot for giving me the chance to feature this on my blog it was so much fun!
