Outfit: Summer Accessories

Postcards from SummerPostcards from Summerhat: New Look, ring: Lipsy, necklace: Accessorize

Love it when British weather suprises you like this. You think summer’s all gone and then – poof! – a sudden hour or two of sunshine and warmth appear out of nowhere. Thanks weather, enjoyed wearing summery accessories again today. Well, when I say again, I mean for pretty much the first time this year … ūüėČ

Designer Crush: Zadig & Voltaire

Zadig & VoltaireZadig & VoltaireZadig & Voltairesource: http://www.zadig-et-voltaire.com/

What is it with French people and dressing well? Old and young, they always seem to be well dressed and sexily confident in their style. Well, it’s no wonder when you’ve got French designers such as Zadig & Voltaire. This label is the baby of Thierry Gillier, who used to work at Yves Saint Laurent, and his collaborator Cecilia Bonstrom. They’re for every girl who feels sexiest in an oversized jumper pulled over skinny jeans and boots (me!). Made a little outfit in the last picture of some of my favourite pieces from their AW11 collection. That’s how I would dress every day if I 1. had money and 2. didn’t find sequinned clothes a real pain in the ass!

Outfit: Pink Suede Shoes

Pink Suede Shoes OutfitPink Suede Shoes Outfit

top: ASOS, dress: H&M, shoes: ASOS, necklace: Miss Selfridge

In a pink straddling nude and peachy, these are just colourful enough to stand out and not too bright to be able to go with other strong colours. Who would have thought pink and orange would go together? I like layering swing tops over simple dresses, and the lace in this little gem from ASOS gives an otherwise very simple and almost flat outfit some dimension.

Fashion forward but always wearable, Topshop is undoubtedly most UK girls’ best friend. They’ve got an awesome AW11 collection. Here are a few of my favourite looks. ¬†Really want some sort of big and (fake) furry jacket now!

Outfit: Back to Black

Back to Black Fetish Trend Outfit

blazer: Miss Selfridge, top: French Connection, skirt: H&M, shoes: Jones, belt: Zara, bag: Nine West, necklace: River Island, cuffs: ASOS, Warehouse

I rarely wear so much black during the daytime, but I felt like looking sharp and smart today. Fetish is a massive AW11 trend but I’m not a huge fan of some of the key pieces – wide belts especially are really not my style. So I took details from the trend to inject this outfit with wearable fetish accents. This Miss Selfridge blazer is the perfect item for adding a bit of fetish style without being too extreme. Sorry it’s these boots again, but they’re just the most versataile shoes ever. Plus, I love the gradient from the brown at the bottom up through the sheer tights to the all-black top pieces.

Stumbled upon this gorgeous outfit from Rebecca at¬†stylewithbenefits¬†and just had to share! Though if you tried to wear this outfit over here in the UK in autumn you’d end up with some pretty soggy socks!

knit: borrowed from my mum, top: H&M, shorts: Mango, boots: Schuh, hand chain: ASOS

Well this day was very British! Umbrella-blown-inside-out moments galore, and for the most part I could barely see through my hair. Managed to get some quick pictures done before the rain came, and it was actually rather warm, hence the shorts. I’m trying to stretch out bare legs as far into¬†September¬†as possible but it’s already getting a bit difficult.

dress: French Connection, knit: Zara, belt: Zara, shoes: Schuh,necklaces: River Island, Forever 21, cuff: ASOS

It was weirdly warm out today, despite the rain and dark clouds. So I threw on a girly white summer dress and nude knit (isn’t Zara the best for knitwear atm?) but autumned it up with a black belt and black boots. My empty wallet means that I have to recycle last season’s clothes, but I like mixing seasons up this way. Plus, you find you can get a lot more out of your clothes when you don’t designate them to a particular season.
