New Look Accessories Haul and an Autumn OOTN

As much as we British like to complain about the weather (I don’t know what people in other countries talk about all the time), I’m actually a big fan of British seasons. We’ve had a decent summer this year and the warm weather lasted well into September, so I’m now quite happy to settle into Autumn – I’m enjoying lighting candles and drinking endless cups of tea and, of course, going shopping for my Autumn wardrobe!

One shop I always like to pop into if I want to treat myself to an accessories update is New Look. I really like how they have fashion pieces at decent prices. The first thing I picked up was this monochrome bag, £12.99. I think the gold chain and metalwork detailing make this bag look way more expensive than it’s price tag, and it’s the perfect size for a meal or drinks out – big enough to fit in all the essentials, but not so big that you knock people out when you turn around!

Secondly, I’ve been looking for a pair of boots with cut outs for ages, so I was really pleased to find these (I think they were around £24.99). They’re suede effect and look great with dresses and tights or dressed down with jeans. I think they’re great transition shoes for the Autumn season!

On Saturday I went for drinks and paired the shoes and bag with this floral shift dress from Forever 21. I added a belt (a present from a friend several years ago), a chunky knit black cardigan (Primark!) and was good to go all night! Obviously, I’m a useless blogger and couldn’t even get the bag in the photo but still…you get the idea!

I’m looking forward to pairing the accessories I bought with other outfits too!
