I love this time of year, already my mind is speeding towards hot chocolates, cosy blankets, crispy leaves underfoot and evenings watching Strictly full from a delish Sunday roast! Of course last September I dedicated a post here  

Autumn fashion is something I love and if you read my blog this time last year then you’ll know coats are something I became obsessed with! My aim is to build a collection full of loads of gorgeous colours and styles, I did make a good dent last year as you can see in this post but its only just gotten started and I’ve had to ditch the cheap, unflattering ones in favour of more quality!

Whistles (of course) is a brand who does classics well and their camel Alexandra coat is just one of those pieces that will look amazing time after time; with a price point of £285 it sure is an investment piece! For the more reasonably priced options Mango has a massive selection online right now, massive variety of colour and style!

Jumpers are everywhere and I for one couldn’t be more happier, the more embellishment the better in my eyes! I love a good bit pom pom or sequin on my knitwear. This Asos Multi Striped jumper priced at £25 is my favourite with the Warehouse Pom Pom £18 a close 2nd!

I am also a massive cardigan fan, they are so easy to layer on when you don’t know what the weathers going to be like and I mean that’s us all living in Britain so they quickly become our best friends! This colour blocking beauty from Pretty Little Things at £30 looks great thrown over a tee and jean combo!

Slightly off season although as above who can tell how warm the weather in Britain will be? These Tees from EgaliTEE will still carry us through the next season whilst spreading empowerment! Slip under a jacket or blazer and you are good to go..my fav is The Pips but I could snap a load up if the bank would allow!

If I’m feeling like I’ve worn jeans too much and need a mix it up then my go-to autumn dress is this Matalan Denim shirt dress, perfect teamed with tights and boots its my fav smart/casual look and at £18 Matalan knows how to look after our purse for sure!

Boots… I don’t think I’ve met anyone who doesn’t love a good boot! My preference is 100% the ankle and I believe everyone should have a brown and a black option to hand! Chelsea will always remain my fav style of boot but I do love these Faith Betsy Biker boots at £65.

There’s a million other pieces I want but that will have to be another post, I’d love to hear your favourites

Switching up the Lip shade for Autumn….

Now that the sky is a little darker, the clothes are a little thicker, I’m feeling the lips need a bit of a revamp and reset… its time to change the lip shade ready for autumn!

I have picked my 3 favourite shades to take me into the colder months and perfect for day to night.  Surprisingly no vampy red colour features in this post soooo thats on my ‘find the perfect red’ list ready for those Christmas party events.

Here it is my 3 favs of the moment, starting with my Charlotte Tilbury Miranda May, you know I love it and I’ve dedicated a post to it already here but this colour is perfect for day time as it doesn’t scream in your face but its special with its soft pinky coral tones and makes you feel fab in the evening too!

September I love you…..

There would have been a time that September would have filled me with dread, nervous butterflies dancing around my tummy as I was about to embark on a new school year, waking up to a darker morning and feeling that chill as I miserably waited at the bus stop at stupid a-clock.

Now for me September is as welcome as a warm cup of tea with a bouncy homemade sponge on a lazy Sunday afternoon. There is something so nice about a change of season, like a chance to start a fresh again, change your mindset onto something new.

My September rituals will start to include, packing away the floaty fabrics and summer wardrobe in favour of cosy knits, scarfs and ankle boots. Packing away the BBQ items and paddling pool instead dusting off the slow cooker in prep for some warming stews post crisp country walk.

I love that fashion week sets our inspo for the next season, I love the BBC/ITV autumn ads that pop up and tempt us of whats to come on our screens during these darker nights…infact telly altogether Bake off, Strictly, X-factor…cue hermit crab syndrome.

I love that a berry lip will soon be making a regular appearance and the shops start getting a little more twinkly with their displays…oh there is so much to get excited about, I admit I have experienced a few Christmas pangs (Sorry not sorry)

So September don’t let me down, I’m so happy to see you!
