When I had a look around I realised that I’d been missing out on a whole world of new dresses! Extra dresses! I noticed that the high street have really stepped it up a notch, taking lots of cool new inspiration from runway trends.
Autumn is without doubt my favourite season and the best time of the year. There’s still a glimpse of light come 6pm and the smell of damp brown leaves is so natural it almost feels like I’m not in London but wrapped up in a throw somewhere back in Wales.
Recently Discovered: The Luxe Label I Fell In Love With
There’s nothing better than discovering a new brand – even if it’s just a luxury one that you can obsess over without actually affording to own a piece yourself. Some new breakthrough brands often truly lead the way for high street copies – Cult Gaia bags spring to mind, anyone?
So the sun peaked through for another day yesterday meaning I’m finally getting the last few wears out of my end of season outfits. Case in point this this gorgeous dress from Vero Moda paired with this sassy soft Marni bag and my new Louis Vuitton kitten heel mules.
Although a few colourful dresses have slowly crept into my wardrobe of late (as you’ll have seen on my IG) denim, white and camel pieces are still firm fixtures in my day to day wear. The tones are even filtering through into my accessories too, replacing the black, navy and other dark and moody, winter shades.
Although once considered a fashion faux pas, blue and black quickly became the go-to colour palette of choice. All around the world in fact. Don’t believe me? Well, just check out all of the fashion week pictures from Milan, New York, London etc. As I prepare for my post-baby closet, one sure fire way to kick start my Autumn/Winter wardrobe is to inject some neutral colour. But not camel, white and grey. I’m talking blue, black and gold or white accents. Whilst I’m hoping for some sunshine to last us through September (it’s possible), I’ll leave the heavy coats and cable knit jumpers for another time. I’ve curated my favourite three looks which you can shop by clicking the image.
…has kicked off to a great fashion start, despite the typically unpredictable British weather. If you can wade through the sales, high street store Zara’s new A/W pieces are not to be ignored whilst designer brands like Chloé, Alexander McQueen and Gucci are a total feast for the purse.
(*Sponsored*) You’d be forgiven for thinking Joules was the reserve of the country living, welly wearing customer. Aside from a wealth of pretty printed shoes, boots and wellies (like these gorgeous polka dot ones) Joules is renowned for their cute gilets and versatile jumpers. But it doesn’t end there. Today, Joules is so much more than that. I’ve shopped at Joules for years, their style evolution has been incredible. I shop there not just for breaks to The Cotswolds or trips to Cornwall but also for my weekend wear and city living essentials.
