First up, i’ve got a gorgeous yellow skirt from ‘Urban Outfitters’. The cord affect is quite ‘grandad-esque’ but don’t let that put you off – the button detailing and pockets give it a vintage feel. It’s high wasted so is great from day to night. Here, i’ve teamed it with a three quarter sleeve, ribbed black top from River Island. Tapestry boots from ‘New Look’ last season and THICK black tights. -remember it’s autumn and it’s v. cold!
I’m also bringing out the winter coat again – this bright orange boiled wool coat is from Topshop last year. It’s such a gorgeous colour pop that really makes any outfit bold and exciting – I mean, how couldn’t you be excited by a colour like that? It’s stunning. HOWEVER if you want to be more subtle, something like my every-day barbour might be more like it…
I wore my mum’s Barbour jacket from the 70s for years – it had holes in the pockets and was totally faded – but I loved it! IT did, sadly fall apart so now I have my own one, and it’s beaut. I like to turn up the sleeves in Autumn because I love the tartan lining. Underneath i’m reaping the brand and wearing my peter pan detail CK jumper. IT’s so simple and feminine and the perfect colour compliment for an autumn wardrobe.
NEXT this is a modern vintage piece by Chelsea Girl – it’s a mock 60’s shift dress that can be dolled up and chilled down. I LOVE IT, The look can be worn with crop tops underneath to create a more laid back feel, which I often do with black/white t-shirts. BUT this is it stripped back -with some little Chelsea boots. I’m going all out MIC.
Next up it’s my ultimate COSY cardi. This is also from Urban Outfitters. It’s been such an amazing investment. Not just because it’s freezing in my flat and I can’t afford heating… BUT because it looks so effortless, layered up or stripped back. I’m a huge fan of the gorgeous suede effect elbow patches and I love the ‘boy-friend’ slumpy fit. THE gorgeous little top i’ve paired with it is from River Island.
SO let me know what you thought of these looks in the comments – i’ll maybe do an evening look book soon if you liked them!
Lots of love guys,
