This is just a small selection of the delicious outfits from this week, do have a look through the tag here to see more.

Week themes

The final week’s theme which kicked off on Monday is “We’re Going To The Zoo!”, basically a cute way of saying it’s animal week! It doesn’t have to just be animals you’d see at the zoo though, all creatures great and small are welcome in the #noveltyoutfitclub!

Again, this really is only a small sample of the fabulous photos people have shared, so do have a look through the hashtag here. Thank you again to all of the wonderful participants for creating such wonderful and imaginative outfits, it’s an absolute joy scrolling through the hashtag now! And apologies for sharing this round up a little later than planned – I’ve been struggling with headaches and migraines so have had to avoid too much screen time, but I think it’s starting to get a little better now.

Week themes

Moving on from adventure week, this week’s theme is “Sweets and Treats” and there are already some truly delicious outfits on the hashtag! I’ll be back this weekend to share the top treats – yum!!

It’s been good to see a nod to some of the cult classics too. There has been such an interesting range of movies featured! (Clockwise from top: @vendouris My Neighbour Totoro, @lynnie_bop Gremlins, @kayjaymorrison Star Wars, @geminigemgems Labyrinth)

And so many gorgeous accessories! Serious jewellery envy here! (@chimpsteaparty Grease, @zannaspanner Peter Pan)

The photos I have featured here are really just the tip of the iceberg as there are so many more amazing outfits – over 100 posts on the tag already! I’ve just picked a few highlights and tried to include everyone who has taken part ( but apologies if I’ve missed anyone!) so do pop over to Instagram and have a proper look through the hashtag (click here to take a peek). I couldn’t have hoped for a better start to the challenge, and I’m glad to have discovered some awesome new ladies, and added quite a few dresses, jewellery and fabrics to my wishlist. I have a  feeling this month will be fabulous for inspiration but terrible for my bank balance!!

Week themes

The next theme starting tomorrow is “Adventure Is Out There!” Think anything travel related, the great outdoors, places you have visited or would love to visit, or anything you count as an adventure. I can’t wait to see the next week of outfits, this has already been so much fun!
