Switching it up for Autumn

My style is something that is always evolving, so I wanted to share some of my favourite pieces for October so far. I've  never  been one to shy away from colour, and why should I of course some may say I break fashion rules but, there is nothing to say that vibrant colours can't be worn in autumn..... My favourite knit from this season is lovely green cropped knit  from MissGuided that is so easy to style. One on the elements I was thinking about when I made this purchase was  playing with the idea of whether it can be worn with a skirt, jeans and trouser and thankfully its defiantly a all round versatile item to add to your collection.

 Primark is really hit and miss for me but ,when I went in to my local store I found this lovely high neck cream jumper. The sleeves have a gorgeous fluffy texture and the ribbed effect really work to make it a basic but stylish addition to my current style. Everyone is talking abut Disney right now and I've always adored Disney movies as a child so, when  I also found this lovely Disney themed bag I knew I had to have it,  the gold  accents add a really modern touch to the overall finish.

Luckily we are still enjoying some great weather, and blanket scarf's are such a versatile accessory to add to you autumn collection , styled correctly can make you look chic and keep you warm when the temperature begins to fall.

Spots and Leopard print tops are defiantly on trend for this season, so when I stubbled upon this lovely leopard print top I knew it would elevate my style and I instantly had in mind how I was going to style it. As most may know I only shop when items are on special offer and luckily this was at a great reduction from River Island at only £12, what I love about this top is the ruching detail around the waist and the simple colour pallet.

So of course I have to talk about the little black dress (well in this case its a black knit dress), my complete new obsession is this lovely dress I brought from River Island again this was on offer for £10 and is super easy and effort less, when styled with this red bag, adds a hint of colour without taking away from the simplicity of the overall look.

Preparing for Autumn

   October is finally here and the air is already beginning     to feel fresh and cool. I've been more aware of the             autumn this year and as usual I've been preparing ahead for the cooler weather. 

  Creating a warm vibe is something I love the most             about  this time of year, that's why I love having extra         blankets in the main living room so we can all be warm and cosy while watching our favourite tv shows, talking endlessly or watching a movie. I also have on hand a couple of water bottles these are great for soothing aching muscles, tired feet or if your feeling a little run down can help for comfort and warmth. 

  Now is a good time to start a car weather kit, Normally   my kit will contain de-icer, screen wash, a car scraper     for snow or ice, a blanket, a pair of warm driving or        fingerless gloves and a micro fibre cloth. Its really        handy to have just the basics as in the UK the weather can go from one extreme to the other.

Autumn hues and scents is something I really adore,   I love to switch my normal fruit smoothies to a vegetable heaven, my most favourite is carrots, mixed with coconut milk, nutmeg and cinnamon, blended together make a perfect smoothie and can be enjoyed hot or cold if your not worried about calories for a little treat add
condense milk or a drizzle of honey.

I can not talk about Autumn without adding a luxurious hot chocolate. Options Belgium mint and white hot chocolate is my favourite flavours, there is something so alluring about the intense aromas that makes me feel warm and relaxed.

Creating a Capsule Wardrobe

Capsule styling is something I've been doing for a few years and I've found it so effective when  it comes to styling pieces that I totally forgot I own. Typically speaking for me the rules are endless as I enjoy playing around with my  style, colours and textures depending on my lifestyle and the changing  seasons.

Why I find capsule living easier

I tend to work with around 45 items of clothing and shoes excluding bags and  accessories, this is because I wear very little jewellery and own a small selection of handbags, The way this works is to organise first by taking out any items that are seasonal  and place them in storage containers or somewhere where you can access them at any time, then try organising your closet by colour and not type, this way not only does it look more streamlined but, it has a polished feeling and its easier to select an effective colour pallet. Normally my capsule wardrobe will run for 2 months, however I will swap out a few items that may not be working due to the weather or lifestyle changes.

Take a couple of hours to really think about your style and how practical each item is with your lifestyle, this way you can build your wardrobe on items that you know you will wear you may find it helpful take into consideration any social or family events.

Its really important to have fun and be creative, capsule styling can be difficult to get right especially if your a beginner but, it really can be an effect way to spend less time thinking about what to wear and more time enjoying and exploring life.
