JUMPER: Noisy May
SKIRT: River Island
SHOULDER BAG: Asos
This week I have really not found an opportunity to create a mid-week blog post for you all. Partly because I've been super busy, also because the weather has been rubbish and also because I am not yet 'Autumn ready' and therefore creating Autumn looks is proving difficult.
However, I've taken this evening to rustle up some ideas of what's in my saved basket on my Asos account and to show you a possible outfit that is perfect for this time of year.
I thought the use of white and nudes is particularly suited to this time of year - summery colours but with a different spin to incorporate the weather change. The roll neck jumper by Noisy May is really great for the end of August/ September because it is knitted but still lightweight and a loose knit, so you won't boil if the sun makes an appearance. It's also very reasonably priced, at £22. I paired it with a mini skirt from River Island costing £30 and I think looks super stylish (clearly I am having a fling with animal print at the moment - love it)! It has a leather appearance which makes it smarter in contrast with the slouchy look of the jumper. I would probably tuck the jumper into the skirt to add sophistication and to prevent the skirt looking drowned by the jumper! In order to sustain the neutral appearance of this outfit, but to also draw in a sense of Autumn, I found these gorgeous fringe boots from Minnetonka. The only downside of these funky boots is the fact that they're pricey, however if you are willing to spend a penny DEFINITELY pick up these bad boys. They're £90 and I may even indulge in them myself! They really take on board the current fringe demand this season but by being white, these boots stand out so so much - beautiful!
I am loving fringing at the moment and am desperate for a fringe jacket myself - I would recommend Ukglamorous for their fringe jackets as I have my eye on one of theirs!! Although, this suede jacket by Asos is a whole new level of cool. The biker jacket appearance and the fact it displays fringing on the arms/ back just adds so much excitement and statement to the item, I love this jacket. Again, it's a little pricey - at £130, however definitely go for it if you want to go crazy for fringing.
Last of all, more fringe!!! Asos have yet again aced the fringe look with their bags and this piece matches perfectly with the Minnetonka boots I was talking about earlier. It's only £28 which is brilliant and I don't think you can go wrong with it. It looks super comfy, great price, very current and it's a shoulder bag so if you do brave a short sleeved top, you won't have strap marks on your arm like you do with some bags - very very very irritating haha!
Hope you liked this spin of a blog post, I am hoping to upload a FASHION FRIDAY post tomorrow so keep your eyes well and truly peeled.
