We may be little, but we’re always up for a challenge, so when VoucherCodes asked if we wanted to show How We Wear Autumn with a styling budget of £80 for three items, there was no better time to dust off the cobwebs from the knitwear (I kid you not), and get us geared up for the weather. In classic prints at that too.
The Stripey tee (and the I-couldn’t-resist cut out boots!)
Top: Topshop £16 (similar here) , Skirt: River Island, Shoes: New Look £24.99, Bag: Nica*
I think it’s fair to say that every wardrobe needs a stripey tee. Which is a funny story, considering it was only last year that I took the step into buying my first one one (I know right, and thank you H&M kids for converting me) and now? Well I think I can just about count on two hands my stripe collection! I just love them! For me, not only do they work with every colour under the sun, but I love clashing them with a bold print too.
I chose to keep it simple however, after digging out my pleather skirt from last year, and adding tan accessories certainly made me feel a little chic. Finished off with a cool black coat (this is my new mission), and the cocktails will be calling my name, in what I think will be my new go to, favourite outfit this season.
The Paisley Print smock dress.
Dress: Asos, Leather Jacket: New Look, Bag and Boots: Primark.
I never need an excuse to buy a smock dress, in a pretty print too. I’ve been all about the smock dresses in the Summer, and let’s face it, they’ll be working wonders over the Christmas period! This one really caught my eye whilst browsing Asos, with it’s reclaimed status and the Autumnal colour palette. Purple = winner.
I popped this on with my trusty leather jacket, and some of my old black boots (not forgetting the sparkly socks) and completed it with my burgundy satchel – because everybody likes to co-ordinate once in a while! Once the weather really takes a turn, adding some tights will have me ready to hit the shops and lunch dates in this get up. Because it makes me feel cool. And we all like to feel cool.
The Monochrome (and LOOK cats!) dress.
Dress: H&M £14.99, Leather Jacket and Black Boots: New Look.
I guess every so often, we all cotton on to a trend, and, well, we just join in. And with Monochrome always dipping in and out of fashion (actually amen to the monochrome forever!), it’s the easiest way to look stylish on even the lowest of budgets. The slightest pop of white can make such a difference to a simple black outfit, and is ultimately the perfect look for that day to night that we all love to have.
I couldn’t help myself when I spotted this adorable number, and buying a cat printed dress did nothing for my crazy-cat-lady status. But with it’s effortless look, and flattering shape (thank you skater style dresses), teamed with my (other) black boots and a colourful bag makes this ideal for an evening out with your gal pals.
A huge thank you to Mama Mcfred for taking these photographs – we got there eventually! And also to VoucherCodes for letting us buy some sweet new pieces (Little B did actually buy two print tee’s – it took a while! but sadly has been working non stop, so he’ll be saving them for a later date!). All items priced were chosen by myself (with deciding help from Little B) and all opinions are my own. And I bloomin’ love them!
