TRANSITIONAL PIECES FROM M&S

One of the many good things about the seasons changing is that it gives us the opportunity to wear different types of clothes - which is always fun. So this October I will be wearing…

LEATHER TROUSERS: These make a great change from jeans, go with everything and will become a firm favourite for the season and for the years to come. They can be styled with trainers or ankle boots, t-shirts or cosy knits.

LEOPARD LOAFERS: These shoes are so good - the quality and fit it spot on, they will update every outfit and you can wear them with tights, sparkly socks or bare feet.

Leather Block Heel Ring Detail Loafers £69 / Leather Straight Leg Trousers £199

LEOPARD PRINT SHIRT: I actually thought that leopard print had peaked but this season there seems to be more than ever. This shirt also ticks the 80’s/90’s vibe that is around at the moment. I love this pink velvet bag - such a statement but it also a great size.

Animal Print Long Sleeve Shirt £29.50 / Velvet Bucket Bag £29.50

CORDUROY: Corduroy is in (it’s been a while) these wine coloured cropped trousers are great. At the moment i’m wearing mine with a pink slogan T-shirt but no doubt this will soon be with a cosy knit.

AUTUMN OUTFITS

Every time the seasons change I feel a strong urge to go shopping and there always seems to be so many things I need (want) all of a sudden. However I have learnt that successful Autumn shopping/dressing is about adding a few key pieces to your wardrobe, that will see you through to Winter, that can be dressed up and down and that can complement what you already have.

Here are a few never fail Autumn outfit ideas, shopping tips and some pieces that will make perfect additions to your wardrobe: 

A statement coat: One thing I am always drawn to every season is animal print. I love it - animal print (in my opinion) is a neutral meaning it goes with everything, can be worn to anything and always looks fun and cool.  A leopard print coat is so much more fun than a black one and you'll be surprised how versatile it is.  Marks & Spencer have a few different style leopard print coats in at the moment to suit every shape, size and personality.

A new pair of jeans always makes a good addition to your wardrobe and can often bring back to life tops that you haven't worn for ages.  These are great - high enough around the waist to hide the 'mum tum', slightly cropped and work with ankle boots, flats, heels and trainers.

 

Collared Neck Overcoat with Wool £69 / Frayed Hem Slim Leg Jeans £35

A jumper dress: I love this dress, so comfortable, can be worn over jeans, leather trousers, with boots and tights or trainers. It would also look cool with a biker jacket on top or with a big colourful scarf.  If you are pregnant this could be a good dress to invest in (go for a size up). 

A statement bag can be the making of an outfit - this heart shaped bag is amazing and perfect for Christmas parties, events and weddings.

You'll never regret investing in a pair of practical boots these are a perfect mix of a biker and chelsea boot and will look cool with tights, jeans and dresses. 

Jacquard Long Sleeve Printed Dress £35 / Heart Clutch Bag £29.50

Leather (or faux) leather trousers are one of my Autumn/Winter staples, I wear them a lot, to everything with everything. For smarter occasions I usually wear them with a longer shirt and coat, then dress them down with a T-shirt, denim jacket and trainers.

Striped shirts are having their moment and this is a great one - it is super super simple, flattering, soft and a perfect cut with it's long cuffs. 

This cardigan is leopard print and sparkly - I don't think it needs explaining, it's a winner and would possibly become the most useful thing you own.

INTERSEASON SHOPPING

I love the Summertime but I also love the changing seasons. I think it's good to have a change and makes you appreciate what you have when you have it. I also love being able to dress for different weathers - I like the cosyness of coats and the carefree coolness of a summer dress and look forward to both at the end of the season before. 

The end of the Summer before Autumn (September - October time in the UK - interseason) can be all sorts of seasons, weather and temperature in one day. So when I shop around this time I look for versatile clothes that can be worn in all weathers, all year around.

Mono Animal Ruffle Long Sleeve Blouse £34 / MOTO Side Stripe Skirt £30 / Two-in-One Reversible Bomber Jacket £79

TOPSHOP have some great inter-season pieces in at the moment, I recently purchased an amazing reversible bomber jacket - it's like having 2 jackets in one and really does go with everything including your mood! I am also pretty excited about this black and white ruffle shirt, which I intend to wear with jeans and under dungarees, but would also wear it with a smart skirt or bright coloured trousers to meetings.

We are also fast approaching boot season - I love a statement shoe and rarely play it safe when it comes to the colour of my footwear. If you have followed me for a while you'll know that I love a bright, leopard print or metallic (neutral) shoe and the same goes for boots.  I am really looking forward to styling these red ones, but also have my eye on TOPSHOP's  gold and pinks ones.

A denim skirt is also a wise purchase for September, wear it now with bare legs, trainers or sandals then as the colder weather sets in with tights, boots or loafers.

I also recently purchased this leopard print clutch. The good thing about a leopard print clutch is that it will go with everything and can be worn to anything.  I got mine to go with a blue playsuit I recently wore to a wedding but have since worn it with so many different outfits and know I will for years to come. 

So if you are interseason shopping look out for versatile things that can be worn in all weathers, that can be dressed up and down and as always that make you happy!
