knits with a twist!

Now I know I spoke of coats on my last post but in truth I will be putting off wearing them for as long as possible (you need to buy them now and stash for later). I'm not even ready to break out my jackets or blazers just yet. Now is the time to show off some gorgeous knitwear which thankfully doesn't require another layer just yet. A few key pieces are set to keep me going through to half term sans jacket I hope! I'm going to kick off with investment piece that's come from a gorgeous little boutique who are online as well. This Orwell & Austen sweater was sent to me by Collen & ClareA classic grey cashmere sweater with a little twist......I adore the rainbow cuff. They have a brilliant range of knitwear to suit all budget, they even do their own line of very reasonable cashmere here. If you should find yourselves in Norfolk or Suffolk make sure you pay them a visit! Their stores are real treasure troves!

you can never have too many......

....in winter they are most likely all anyone will notice about your outfit!

You make think it's a little early to think about coats.......however I already have 3 new ones gracing my A/W wardrobe! You've got to get the goods ones before they've all gone! Especially if they have a great discount! This New Look faux fur is part of their New Season Now campaign and is currently reduced to £30.....25% off! I'll be wearing this casually with a chunky knit, straight jeans and hi tops as well.

autumn dressing!

When you find a dress that's the perfect shape.....and you want it in every colour! Rather than switch to my default of jeans once the weather turns cooler I've been looking for alternatives. I tried this dress on a while ago in Zara but left it as the weather was scorchio at the time and I didn't think I'd get the wear out of it. But as an Indian summer has been promised I decided I had to have it! It's one of shapes that goes with almost every pair of shoes in my wardrobe......as I'm about to show you. I bring you a picture heavy, word short post!

more on skirts.....

It's quite likely that the humble skirt is going to be the hero of my transitional wardrobe. The temperatures are still pretty good. However, am I the only one who feels it's just wrong to be wearing my summer dresses in September? That's where the skirt comes in! Wear with a tee.....throw on a sweatshirt over it first thing in the morning and late afternoon when it's undoubtedly chillier. Perfect....as I'm not ready for jackets just yet..... I am still trying to hang on to summer you see!
Leopard print is huge at the moment and although I always have plenty in my wardrobe.....there is always room for more! I've got a maxi length chiffon skirt as well as a short a-line version. I fancied more of a midi length whilst I have still have some remnants of a tan. After much trawling the internet I found the perfect wrap style in jersey. The proof is in the pudding as I've already worn it 3 times in the space of a week! Here's todays ensemble......

How to style skirts!

Sorry. I've been absent from the blog for a long while. I'm not making any excuses. It just wasn't bringing me joy. However I've been set a challenge.....and so here I am again! I'm going back to my blogging roots and I'm just going to keep things simple i.e how I style new items in my wardrobe with what I've already got.
A couple of ladies have been in touch to say they find skirts more difficult to style and so I've got 2 new ones that I'm going to show you how I'm going to wear, taking me through to Autumn as well.
I'm starting with this style. Now I bought this is beige a while ago and have loved it. So when I spotted it instore in navy (after seeing it on my friend Sue) I grabbed it. It's not online but I've linked the black version instead. It isn't the easiest of styles to wear because of the paperbag waits but this is what I adore about it.
