A CLASSICS UPDATE



Whilst I don't necessarily like keeping up with the latest trends, I do like making sure that I regularly update my every day classic items - in this case, the crossbody bag and trench. The bag is one of Marks and Spencer's cult classics that they rework every season in different fabrics and colours. I don't tend to wear allll that many patterns, (*looks back at recent blog posts to see me wearing dots and checks* ahem) so I thought it could be nice to have a more statement bag for the days I wear all plain outfits. Being such a timeless shape with the twist lock fastening and chain handle meant that even with the striped finish, I knew it wouldn't be something I would get bored of quickly and will sit happily in my wardrobe for years to come.


This one isn't really an update, but more of a rediscovery. I found this trench again whilst clearing out my wardrobe (for like the 10th time in as many months!) and I very nearly put it to get chucked out as I hadn't worn it for probably over a year. A little look through Insta and Pinterest later and I remembered why I loved wearing and bought the trench in the first place. Something I forget is that being such a classic, versatile neutral, it can be worn with as many things as a black or grey jacket - and it's nice that for a change the black is just an accent colour to an outfit rather than the main one.

ASOS Soft Trench Coat (similar here, here and here), H&M Basic Sweatshirt, M&S Crossbody Bag, Topshop White Mom Jeans, Adidas Gazelle Trainers

STYLING THAT SUMMER DRESS FOR A/W



Outfit:
Zara Shearling Biker Jacket, H&M Basic Sweatshirt, Motel Star and Moon Print Dress (old, similar here), Monki Semi Circle Bag (old, similar here and here), Daniel Wellington Watch, Converse Black Hi Tops

Remember that Realisation Par dress you fell in love with during the summer but have reluctantly put to the back of the wardrobe and replaced with allllll the chunky knits? Well, it's time to get it back out again... Layer under a baggy jumper, put on a pair of tights and add some sock boots or Hi Tops and you're good to go again.
P.S. I work PT so no way I was spending all that money on a RP dress. This Motel dress was juuuust as good though, obvs.

BURGUNDY



Outfit:
Kate Spade Burgundy Mini Bag (old, similar here), H&M high neck knit (similar here, here, here and here), H&M burgundy trousers (similar here), Adidas Stan Smith Trainers

Burgundy. Give it to me in every way it's wearable. Knitwear, trousers, scarves, bags, nails and, of course, lipstick. Other than mustard, and maybe a bit of navy, burgundy will be the only colour I wear this season. And I love co ordinating by wearing it all at once. Considered wearing a burgundy jumper with these trousers but didn't want to be mistaken for a bottle of Ribena. Are you all about the Burgundy or do you have another colour you love wearing in Autumn?
