Autumn is just around the corner and I couldn't be any happier! The colder months are the best by far no matter how much I contradict myself by saying how I love sitting out in the sun. After spending a couple of weeks in Portugal soaking it all up and enjoying the last bits of Summer, I'm more ready than ever to get into my jumpers and big coats. In light of this, I thought I'd do a post on all of the things that I'm loving at the moment including those Autumnal pieces that are starting to creep back into my wardrobe.
I honestly find scrunchies so cute! I recently purchased a pack of three off ASOS from New Look that were only £3.99 and I just love them. It just adds the cutest little touch to your hair where a normal bobble/hair tie is just plain. They're definitely coming back into fashion, reminding us that you don't have to be at school to be able to pull them off but also bringing back the 90's once again. Totally something that you could buy in every different colour way and pattern and keep buying more to add to your collection. Love them!
This is something I never thought I would be complimenting. I've never looked at an animal print piece of clothing and gone to buy it - until today. For me, growing up, leopard printed clothing especially was something that was stereotypically quite tacky. Always worn as a quite loud outfit with short skirts and usually a lot of skin on show. Somewhere between this, I feel like it's become much more toned down and a lot more wearable shall we say. It's definitely on trend at the moment as it's everywhere you turn and even I've joined the bandwagon and bought myself a bodysuit from Boohoo.
I actually love the colouring on it. It goes so well tucked into high waisted trousers with a belt and leather jacket over the top. As it's a proper bodysuit and doesn't have the poppers, it was really tight on me so after doing some last minute DIY and cutting through the bottom, I managed to style it quite well. Leopard print and other animal prints are a yes from me.
I don't know anyone who doesn't love this season for creating a new coat collection every year - it has to be done. There are so many that I've seen that I already have on my wishlist. After a day trip to Leeds, I found the perfect cosy coat that I was dying to get my hands on the minute I got back (should've just impulse bought at the time I know). Also from New Look, it's so dreamy and being black you know you can't go wrong. It's definitely swayed me more towards the fluffy, teddy coats rather than the more practical parka. I'm also much preferring the mid length, slightly oversized but just right coat.
Literally the comfiest things ever. I wore these on both the plane there and back to Portugal and they're just a dream. I love how breathable they are to wear and it's just so easy to tuck a t-shirt in and be set with them. They're definitely something that again I would never normally wear but have grown to love once I've finally tried them. Considering how thin of a material they are, I wouldn't recommend wearing them going into the colder months but culottes are definitely something that I will be wearing a lot more of in the future and will hopefully get myself a collection going.
YoungBlood/ Shawn Mendes:
Both of these albums have been out for a while now, both with a different sound but I'm still loving them. I've been a fan of both artists since they were starting out so to hear them produce music like this is music to my ears - literally! They have such a good range of songs and just make for two amazing albums. If you haven't heard of them, the artists are 5 Seconds Of Summer and Shawn Mendes.
IntheFrow - The New Fashion Rules
So this hasn't actually been released yet but I cannot tell you how excited I am to get my hands on it. Victoria is one of my favourite bloggers and I honestly get so inspired by everything of hers, so this is just the cherry on the cake for me! It's amazing that she's been able to achieve this and just the fact that she's written a book makes me so excited. It definitely looks like one for the fashion lovers out there, I just can't wait to read!
The After Series:
Staying on the topic of books and reading, one thing I am loving at the minute is the 'After' series by Anna Todd. If you haven't heard of this already, the series was written as a fanfiction based on Harry Styles and was then published into a series of books. I'm actually really enjoying reading the series as just a normal romance rather than a fanfiction. It's got me back into reading and reminded me of how much I used to love it. It's such a relaxing feeling being able to pick up a book and just take some time out to read it. Definitely one of the best things to do on a rainy night in.
Leave a comment and tell me what you're loving at the minute! I would love to hear from you. Also are you more into the Winter or are you still wishing it was Summer?
