PUMKIN PATCH IN CREAM CORD

 

I find it so hard to dress for Autumnal days, it’s not quite cold enough for Winter coats, but it’s definitely too cold to leave the house without a jacket. It’s the time of year when you leave the house in the morning wrapped up, then by 12 you’re sweltering. My favourite solution is a blazer. Blazers add a masculine chic vibe to any outfit. I enjoy wearing cream in Autumn to contrast the drizzly, dull days, it’s also a great transitional colour from white which I wear to death in the Summer. This cream, cord blazer with horn buttons is the perfect throw-over item. I paired it with a cream mini-skirt and gold trainers, but it would look super cute over jeans and a plain top. Once I’d styled this outfit I thought the perfect location would be a pumpkin patch. Although cream is not quite appropriate for such a location the contrast of the cream looked insane against the field. The perfect outfit for a pumpkin date! 😉

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Thinking of a Halloween costume is my favourite part of October and so I began thinking of a killer outfit. This year I decided a Ringmaster would be my theme. I spent hours looking on sites for the perfect costume when H&M released their stunning Halloween collection – which amazingly contained a Ringmaster style. It’s a stunningly detailed velvet bodysuit piece; the main body is black with gold button detailing, with a red velvet jacket style attached. I paired it with fishnet tights, over the knee boots and a top hat. So chic!!! Of-course Halloween is no longer a one-night event; so more than one outfit is a must. You can turn most everyday outfits into Halloween styles. Here I styled my Zara white mini-dress as a Mummy. Simply using bandages, you can turn the look into a spooky Halloween vibe. Get yours now before time runs out!!!

LULU MAKES IT RAIN

I have never known it to rain SO MUCH. I absolutely hate rain, especially when I have to commute daily. Public transport is hurled into meltdown, outfits get ruined and everyone is pretty miserable. Not only is the rain rotten, the wind is hideous too, sending umbrellas into a frenzy. I decided the best solution would be to invest in a proper umbrella. I have been a fan of Lulu Guinness for many years now. I had always eyed-up their umbrella collection. The standout style for me was their ‘Diagonal Stripe Bloomsbury Umbrella’. The chic shade of red, contrasting with the monochrome stripe is perfect to pair with my Winter outfits; adding a pop of colour. The umbrella is outstanding quality and detailed to perfection; the clasp is finished with a red lips embellishment – so Lulu! The umbrella is also auto-opening with a simple press of the button, which is so convenient when you’re battling the weather with bags galore. I highly recommend purchasing one for the dreary days ahead, it gives you a reason to hope for rain ;)!

BAGGY JEAN VIBES

The 90’s are back! Big baggy jeans are the THING right now. Every fashion brand is releasing a pair of the trendy jean style. I absolutely love the relaxed aesthetic, making outfits look chilled and stylish. I bought this particular pair from Zara, in a dark wash; perfect for the transitional time from Autumn to Winter. I paired a man shirt from NEXT with the jeans, tying the shirt to create femininity and I unfolded the cuffs for a laidback look. I clinched in my waist with the Gucci belt, to contrast against the loose leg of the jean. I styled my western style, tan boots, to add height and a touch of chic! The look can easily be styled with dad trainers or heeled sandals, depending on the vibe you are feeling. The jeans would work well with crop woollen jumpers too, for a chillier day.
