Also, I found out a few days ago that I got the position of Fashion Sub-Editor at the magazine I contribute to- The Tribe. I've been writing the men's section for the past year because I have a minor obsession in menswear. You can read some of my articles here if you are interested!
So here's my first installment of my take on some of Autumn's coming trends.
This little number is a khaki pencil skirt which I already own from Asos and patent black brogues from River Island. I'm a sucker for a Breton striped top and so I'm going to begin my charity shop mission to find one. I may have to go for a cropped variety as I always tuck my tops into pencil skirts, but hate it when you see the bunching under the fabric. Actually could start rocking this look over summer...
To be honest this is basically my usual 'uniform.' Docs? Check. Black Skinnies? Check. Shirt? Check. I live in shirts mostly because I'm quite busty at a 32G and these babies only came to me a few years ago and I'm still apprehensive about putting them on display. I love cravats. Mostly because I love period dramas. Think Mr Darcy. In the wet shirt... But I digress. The flat cap? Well, where would a girl be without a flat cap?
This outfit consists of a black New Look dress I picked up the other day. It's really simple and unlike the Topshop varieties, covers my backside and my bra. Which is something that is always needed but rarely provided in summer dresses these days. I do love my maxis, but I've been hitting the gym, and want to get my legs out! The tweed is my classic Aquascutum. And of course the big hair. Big hair is always needed. I'll probably wear this with Docs. Or perhaps invest in some deck shoes. That said, I'm tempted to start wearing heels. But at 5'10" and curvy I (apparently) come across as intimidating. So heels just wouldn't help that situation. I'm nice really!
So there are my current ideas on autumn trends, there shall be more as I am loving this season!
I hope you are all having a FABULOUS week enjoying the fabtasmic weather...
PS I just realised that Tom Hardy is in Marie Antoinette. That just makes me love the film even more... Just wanted to share that with you all...
