An Early Autumn Outfit
Autumn has well and truly arrived and I took advantage of the first sunny October day to take some outfit photos in my parent’s garden. I also took advantage of my Mum’s photography skills – she spent many years processing films in her own dark room. Years later she’s moved on to digital processing, but the results are equally good and she no longer has to worry about the chemicals playing havoc with her hands.
Early autumn is a great time of year, as the season starts to change and the leaves begin to turn brown, I enjoy the opportunity to break out my warmer jackets and boots. I’m channelling quite a preppy look in this outfit, teaming a basic white shirt with my LBD from Marks & Spencer and my Whistles leather biker jacket.
My necklace is from designer Kenneth Jay Lane and something that I’ve had in my jewellery collection for about eighteen months. My blue clutch bag is recent addition to my wardrobe from up and coming designer AILA and my wedge boots are from Oasis.
Leather is set to be a huge trend this season; expect to see leather jackets, skirts and trousers galore. Equally popular amongst the fashion blogging community is wearing a collared shirt under dresses and jumpers. This trend has proved to be popular enough for online boutique Start London to produce a white cotton collar that can be worn underneath an outfit. While I love this idea, I can’t bear to part with £40 for one of these, so instead I bought a basic white shirt from Sainsburys for the bargain price of £4.
