Not Quite Colour Blocking


Does this count as colour blocking? So it's not the same colour, but it's not far off! I wanted to get a few more wears out of these silk trousers before the weather gives up being so pleasant, so I added this knit to stop is looking too summery. Slipped on some killer heels, and I was good to go! 

TROUSERS: COS
JUMPER: & OTHER STORIES
The exact one isn't online, but this one is very very similar! 
SHOES: CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN 
Great budget version here. If you fancy a splurge, here is the classic Pigalle, and I am also loving these Gianvito Rossi ones!

Duster Coats



So it isn't often I post twice in one day, but some times you've just gotta do it! I realised my wish list post was missing one vital ingredient: the duster coat. Yes there was a couple of coats in there, but none I could throw over my shoulders tomorrow in his oddly warm weather we are having. For that, the duster coat is the one for the job! Hugely popular this season, the bloggersphere isn't short on inspiration on ways to wear them! 

I have one duster coat residing in my wardrobe (unless this Zara one counts too? I'll let you guys be the judge), My faithful COS one. I have worn it to death! And I do mean that literally, as sadly it is almost dead. I am thinking of adding another to my collection, but as it is going to be getting colder soon I want something well priced, but still nice. 
My pick are these two from Ark (I am yet to decide on the colour I prefer!) I saw the gorgeous Megan over from Pages by Megan rocking a similar number, and have loved the grid print ever since. 
What do you guys think??

So Last Season!


Do you guys ever have one of those days where you have nothing to wear, while also battling with an ongoing storage problem? I imagine that's a resounding yes! Well I had one of those moments the other morning, and this is what I ended up leaving the house in.
When I have these moments, I invariably end up leaving in a mixture of old and new items. This jumper is a Zara sale find from last season, and I still love it so much. I added one of my investment pieces, this Alexander Wang blazer, and my newest jeans. A combination of new and old, and being able to re-wear items year after year is definitely a perk of minimal dressing.

BLAZER: ALEXANDER WANG
Love this Warehouse black blazer too! 
JUMPER: ZARA
This one from ASOS is a fab fine knit version. 
JEANS: ASOS FARLEIGH
SHOES: VANS



Autumnal


 This is one of the outfits I wore during our tea crawl. I think it is a very Autumnal outfit, and despite the weather being rather tricky to dress for, I think I did a rather good job! I haven't worn this coat in so long that I actually had momentarily forgot I had it, so seeing in my wardrobe was quite and exciting moment! 

Teamed with my current wardrobe favourites: My sleeveless All Saints knit, and these gorgeous boots. You guys can expect to see these boots here a lot over the upcoming months! 

COAT: ZARA 
I am so into camel and beige coats, this one is gorgeous! This one is a similar shape and structure too. 
JEANS: H&M 
 This ASOS one is similar and on sale too!!
