Welcome to Autumn!








Trousers- Zara   Shirt- Nostalgia  Jacket- Topshop - Similar Here  Bag- Zara  Loafers- Zara 
Glasses- ASOS - Similar Here  Watch- Michael Kors  Rings- H&M 


Autumn is officially here! The weather has well and truly taken a turn and the gorgeous carpet of leaves that have fallen is a clear sign. Another clear sign is that I am in super shopper mode for all things knitted, warm and cosy. I recently purchased this bag from Zara which I have had my eye on for ages, The loafers which are super comfy as well as stylish were one of my lovely birthday gifts. I knew I wanted some loafers but struggled to find any that weren't too bulky so when I saw these they were the perfect pair. 

What do you think to the Khaki trousers? I liked the colour straight away and thought they were a little different to black which I usually wear. These will quickly become a wardrobe staple.

Autumn High Street Haul








Autumn High Street Haul

Jeans- Topshop  Bag- Zara  Shoes- Mango  Jacket- Zara  Poncho- Oasis



Happy Friday everyone! I thought with Autumn well and truly here I would compile a selection of items from the high street which will see you through the season in style. The great thing about the selection of items I have chosen is they are all below £50! How amazing! Personally I think they are all staple pieces as well as being chic at the same time. So that said when I saw this bag in Zara I immediately thought it had a Celine vibe to it and with a £40 price tag its a winner! 

The Croc print shoes for me are to die! I love everything about them, the point, the print, the colour! Huge winner in the autumn shoe stakes. The Poncho is another great buy. It can be worn over a shirt for a smart casual look or with a leather jacket under to add warmth and layers. There are loads on the high street at the moment, printed and embellished but you cant got wrong with black. Now I am known for being a little impractical when it comes to fashion so when I saw this jacket in Zara I though hmmm its not very warm...however its gorgeous light fabric hangs beautifully and can always be worn over a fine knit sweater so I've gone with it! 

Let me know what you think of the above and if you yourself have found any staple trophy pieces on the High street that you love this season. I would love to know.

The Highs of London Fashion Week #LFW

September, the most important month in any fashionista and blogger's diary. This is of course because from the 12th through to the 16th London hosts 58 catwalk showcases in 5 days! pretty impressive if I do say so! I thought with this years fashion week well and truly wrapped up I would summarise on the highs of fashion week.
Day 1:
So day 1 saw Eudon Choi showcase his Spring/Summer 2015 collection.  His slouchy tailoring with a feminine twist mixed with florals and flowing materials made it one big tick for me. Simply amazing.  Day one also saw designers such as Felder Felder, PPQ along with Amanda Wakeley and Paul Costello to name a few. Felder Felder particularly caught my eye with their explosion of leather and prints paired with womanly silhouette. Just the right amount of cool!
Day Two:
Day two saw Emilia Wickstead, Antipodium and Markus Lupfer take to the stage. Markus Lupfers collection was simply the coolest mix of beach chic I have ever seen. Together with makeshift beach huts and surfboards galore made for a very interesting collection! I love it!
As the week was coming to an end we saw Sophia Webster, Topshop Unique, David Koma, Ashish and Fashion East showcase their collections. Fashion East again for me was simply divine, I loved the chocker neck dresses, the whole 90's vibe and the models semi dredlocked hair! Super cool points to them.
I for one cant wait to see what February brings to the Fashion world! Let me know what your favourite shows of September were.

Monochrome




Coat- H&M (Similar Here)  Shirt- Zara  Bag- Mulberry  Jeans- Topshop  Shoes- Zara 
Bow- Ribbon from John Lewis Watch- Michael Kors - H&M  

First and foremost I apologise for the lack of posts lately, I'm actually working with a stylist for X Factor so I have been super busy. Anyway back to the outfit. This look was based entirely round my new trilby. I absolutlely love hats lately, they add a little polish to an autumn look. Autum/Winter is actually my favourite season. I'm obsessed with all at  the knitwear and boots that are making their way into the stores at the moment. I've chosen an oversized shirt (everyone should own a white shirt!) ripped jeans and my Zara corset heels. I feel the hat and shoes really pull the look together.

Let me know what you think and what your favourite pieces are out at the moment.

Boyfriend Fit



























Jeans- Topshop (Similar Here)  Shirt- Zara (Similar Here)  Scarf- Alexander McQueen  Shoes- Zara (These are on my wishlist)  Bag- Topshop 



Today's look is all about Boyfriend styling. I however have added heels to make it feel a little more girly. I love slouchy jeans and shirts together. I know the general consensus is loose top tight bottoms and vice versa but I love the slouchy feel. I have added heels and the scarf to really pull the look together. 

What are your thoughts on doubling up on the slouchy fit?

Transitional Pieces






Jeans- Topshop- Similar Here  Jacket- Mango Similar Here Shoes- Zara  Clutch- Zara  T-Shirt- Topshop- Love This One  Lip- MAC Russian Red 


All the pieces I'm wearing in this post are transitional pieces I can take through to the Autumn. Although it's a good while until the leaves are all crisp on the ground and there is a chill in the air I for one like to be prepared. Today was a little milder than it has been so I threw on my white blazer. The hat is something new for me as I don't wear them often and my hair has really only just grown out from a very short pixie cut, that said I do love this one and think it adds a little something to my look. 


Let me know what you think and if you have any transitional pieces I would love to know what they are.

Thanks for Reading
