Farewell My Summer Love, Farewell

5 Sep

September is here, the time of year when our lazy love affair with sandals and sunglasses fades and we begin to feverishly eye-up the new season knitwear and boots. Ice-cream and long days at the beach become a distant memory and will soon be replaced by hot chocolate and cosy coffee shop sofas.

When I step out into the morning and feel the fresh snap at my skin & smell the cold dew on the grass I know that autumn is just around the corner, this thought fills me with renewed vigor and a change of focus for my ever increasing wardrobe.

This year I have decided that its high time we ditched the cocoon coats, mannish military cover-ups and no-effort parkas and actually displayed those waists we worked so hard for in Spring. Just because we have the possibility of hiding our extra pounds in the colder months under more forgiving clothing, it doesnt mean that we should. If we keep ourselves in check throughout Autumn/Winter we wont even need to do the big summer body re-haul next spring.

So with the waistline in mind and as the key focus for the new season I will be looking to Audrey Hepburn as one of my main style influences. Any female with an eye for style will almost certainly see Audrey Hepburn as an icon. The belted trench she wears in that scene from Breakfast At Tiffanys, you know the one with the rain, the cat and the kissing, is a truly inspiring Autumn look.

The bare legged, demure heeled look is beautiful with a belted mac but I am a big fan of pairing this ladylike wardrobe staple with something a little less clean and tidy like a slick pair of boots. I’m lusting after these beauties from Kurt Geiger.

The Kooples & Lamé

8 Sep

I am utterly in love with this lamé jacket from The Kooples! You’d be forgiven for thinking that a jacket like this would not be the most practical of pieces but I really do think a bit of imagination will have you wearing this stunning blazer all over town.

The Kooples (£355)

At the Cinema

I love going to the cinema and what screams off-duty movie star more than The Kooples jacket and a funky white tee? Teamed with casual denim and Hi-Top trainers this look is relaxed but still makes a sharp fashionable impression.

Dinner Date

Romance, wine, good food and dressing up, they’re just a few of my favourite things so put all of them together and I’m one happy girl. Zara are really excelling with their elegant silhouettes this season and I just love the jewell tone of this figure hugging dress. Velvet Box Bag…stunning at £19.99, BARGAIN CLASSIC.

Bar Hopping

No teetering high heels and bottom baring mini’s here. American Apparel disco pants are where it’s at and they’re not called D.I.S.C.O. for nothing baby, with flat shoes and a no-hands bag this outfit is for dancing allllll night long.
