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!
