Pinafores, or dungaree dresses, are a super cute way to dress this autumn/winter. They’re no longer just for little girls, I know I had a fair few when I was little, but it’s now also socially acceptable for grown ups to wear them too (and look stylish!), which in my eyes is fantastic. I’ve always loved pinafores and with corduroy coming back into fashion in a major way it’s great to be able to incorporate both styles into an outfit and wear them together.
I actually own this bottle green corduroy pinafore and it’s become a staple piece in my wardrobe over the past couple of weeks. As it comes in a variety of colours (see here for burnt orange, light grey, baby pink and charcoal grey) there’s a colour that will suit everyone’s wardrobe. It’s a really affordable way of buying into the trend (they’re only just over £7!) which is great if you’re not sure it’s a look you want to invest in. I would pair this green pinafore with a floral blouse, this one is perfect as the detail is across the shoulders and sleeves so that it isn’t covered by the pinafore. To keep warm at this time of year I would add tights, preferably black tights, and finish off the look with a pair of black Chelsea boots (these are on sale for only £17.24!); see my other top picks for ankle boots here.
This black denim pinafore is a much safer option for most people’s wardrobes as it is a very classic colour and it can be changed to suit many different styles. Personally I’d pair it with a detailed, long sleeved top, like this floral one, to keep me warm but create a classy vibe. Again I’d pair with black tights, as they keep you warm, and add black flats this time; these black loafers are smart, yet still pretty.

Why Beige Isn’t Boring
Who doesn’t love to be all sparkly? You’re lying if you say you don’t love dressing up in a sparkly dress and feeling like an actual princess. Sequins are back in this season, so you can wear them without feeling like a six year old who’s off to a birthday party. The more sparkle, the better! I’ve picked out my favourite pieces that I’ve seen and of course all the products I mention are shoppable, just click on the links.
This is the dress I’m thinking of buying to be my New Years outfit – I know it’s only November but you can never be too prepared after all! It’s so sparkly and festive, it’s great for celebration. I would pair this dress with black stilettos, as they add a classy vibe, and a black clutch bag to match. This clutch bag has a diamante, sequin effect on the bow which ties in with the detail on the dress (double the sequins!).
This sequin top is the perfect piece if you’re not feeling throwing yourself into the deep end with the sequin trend. It’s a subtler way to incorporate it into your outfit, whilst still being incredibly sparkly. I would pair this with a leather look skirt to create a rather edgy look and some black patent leather ankle boots. These are sock boots, which are incredibly on trend, so I’d definitely recommend buying yourself a pair.
How insane are these gorgeous rainbow sequined boots? They’re very jazzy (yes I’m aware saying jazzy makes me sound like a mom trying to be cool, but that’s what they are!) and they’re a really fun way to get into the sequin trend. I’d pair these with a black t-shirt dress (also comes in petite), I really like this one with the collar detail as it is a very feminine addition to the dress and suits my girly style a lot more than a simpler t-shirt dress, which can sometimes be rather casual. To finish the look I’d add a silver clutch bag to match the metallic sparkle of the shoes.

How I Make My Skin Feel (Soap &) Glorious
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to autumn I seem to wear nothing but ankle boots on my feet. Whether that’s Chelsea boots or heeled ankle boots, they’re a simple yet incredibly stylish way to add an autumnal twist to an outfit. I thought I’d share the cutest boots I’ve spotted online so that you can incorporate this adorable style into your wardrobe.
Pearls are everywhere this season – on the heels of shoes, embroidered across jumpers and all over bags to name just a few! A detail which used to be regarded as old fashioned has completely and utterly come back into style and I’m really happy about it. I wear pearl earrings almost everyday and I think they’re a timeless and classy style to incorporate into your wardrobe. All these pieces are shoppable just click on the links to take you to the product!
My new favourite fashion obsession (which I haven’t actually managed to get my hands on yet…) is corduroy. If you’re up to date with my blog and have read my October Wishlist then you’ll know that I’m on the look for lots of cord pieces for this autumn season. Corduroy is bang on trend at the minute and I’ve seen it popping up all over the place, I think it’s definitely a trend to keep your eye on.
As we transition into autumn it is a perfect time to mix up your wardrobe and add some new pieces. I have made a video on my outfit plans for autumn which will be going live this evening but I thought I’d create a blog post to go alongside it with some shoppable versions of the outfits I refer to.
As we move into the autumnal season colours like wine and burgundy begin to make up a large part of our wardrobe; inspired partly by the colours of nature changing around us into deep shades of red and orange. I love this colour and think it looks flattering on everybody, whatever skin tone or hair colour you have. It’s my go to colour for autumn as it always manages to look so classy and beautiful. I’ve collected together some of my favourite wine and burgundy coloured pieces that I’ve seen online and in store which I think are perfect for the autumn/winter season. As always, all of the pieces are shoppable, just click on the links!
