Wearing - but not feeling - blue | Fashion

Blue coat from New Look

Last week was such a hectic week for me, filled with work, coursework deadlines, and just trying to fall back into my old routine of university life. However, in the midst of all of that craziness, I somehow managed to come across this beautiful, lightweight coat from New Look.

New Look had a 20% sale when I bought this, on everything. So how could I not take advantage! It's my go to coat for early Autumn now, as it's so light and the perfect amount of thickness. I've never really owned anything this colour before either, I'm usually a very "black, navy blue, and grey" type of gal'. Having said that, the colour of this is probably my favourite feature!

Coat - New Look (£19.99 - around £17 after discount!)
Dress - Topshop (£25)
Bag - Aldo (£45)

Suns out..knee high socks out? | Fashion

Yes, we are once again in that awkward transition between Summer and Autumn. You know those days when it's too cold to go without a jumper, but too sunny for tights? Well I thought I'd mix it up with my outfit by adding a touch of Autumn on to an outfit I'd usually wear in the Spring/Summer.

Light wooly jumpers are the perfect addition to any outfit on a day when it's just not cold enough to wear a coat. Because I wear a lot of high waisted skirts, and shorts, I love pairing them with this cropped jumper I have on so I can really show off the full design of my skirt (it's hard to do so when you have a big, baggy oversized sweater on!).

And of course, what Autumn outfit is complete without a pair of wooly knee highs to finish off? Knee high socks add a lovely, girly touch besides from keeping your lower legs all nice and toasty (sorry thighs).

Jumper - Urban Outfitters
Skirt - Urban Outfitters
Socks - H&M
Shoes - H&M

What do you think of my choice of outfit today?

The Autumn Tag

At the moment, it hasn't felt like Autumn has come yet, so I am still waiting for the crisp breezes and the beautiful changes of colours in the leaves. In the meantime, to get me more into the Autumn mood, I was tagged by the lovely Hayley to do "The Autumn Tag" and what better time is there to do it than in Autumn? 

Ok we're talking coffees - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?

I'm not much of an experimenter of drinks at all, considering I hate the taste of coffee (apologies to all the coffee lovers out there), so I'm pretty boring but my favourite seasonal all year round drink would be the "Classic Hot Chocolate" from Starbucks. To be honest, the only reason why I chose Starbucks is because of their amazing whipped cream..mmm!

Accessories - what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?

Boots, always. For me, there's nothing that can perfect an outfit more than a pair of chunky boots.

Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?

Like Hayley, Gabrielle Aplin is top of my playlist. Her voice is just so calming, and I swear I can picture people running through autumn leaves when she sings...
And then of course Ed Sheeran, because...well because it's Ed and he's amazing.

Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?

"Chance Eau Tendre" by Chanel.

Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?

I absolutely love "Autumn Fruit" by Yankee Candle. I know Yankee Candles are absolutely raved about everywhere, but there is literally just a scent for every occasion, and they're of the most incredible quality.

What do you love most about Autumn?

The colours. Burgundy, red, ochre yellow, gosh I love them all.

Favourite make up look?

I wouldn't say I have a particular look, but my favourite lipstick to rock out is my MAC lipstick in "Diva", which is a matte finish.

What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?

Snuggles by the fire, with huge blankets and mahoosive mugs of hot chocolate.
Oh wait, I don't have a fireplace. So just everything else. 

I tag the lovely Georgia, ZoëAmyAimee, and Sarah to do "The Autumn Tag"!
