I live a few miles (four to be precise) from the Junction 32 Shopping Outlet Village, so I was thrilled to be invited to take part in their #fallfashionchallenge where I would get to purchase an AW14 look. Last Saturday I spent the day with my sister-in-law (and Rufus) shopping…along with some other bloggers – Hannah from Cagney and Lace, Heather from Pret a Mummy and Laura from A Forte for Fashion. All super lovely and all from Yorkshire. I do love Yorkshire!
Junction 32 is somewhere I go a couple of times a month, so I know it well. It is where I go to buy last minute presents (Monsoon is always a winner!), or if I’m looking for a more expensive item like a coat or dress. With eBay and Junction 32, I rarely pay full price or buy new. I’m usually in a bit of a rush, so it was nice to have the opportunity to go in shops I wouldn’t normally go in. However, Mango and Monsoon are still my firm favourites.
We were all given a different ‘look’ to shop for and I was given party wear. Not a massive party goer or dress wearer, I did feel a tad stressed. I decided to opt for a jumpsuit and something furry to keep it current. Thankfully I found both quite easily.
Other things to note about Junction 32 is that there is a large park for entertaining the kids – always kept super clean and tidy. A good choice of places to eat. My one moan is that the HOBBS shop recently closed down – the quality and cut of the clothing there was just gorgeous, and I miss it!
I had some money left, so I bought a fringed long line cardigan from Monsoon – RRP £99, but I paid £29.50. I love it, and it will keep me cosy for years!

I was gifted £100 worth of vouchers to spend at Junction 32 as part of the #fallfashionchallenge. All thoughts and feelings are my own.
