NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Oh Hey Monochrome, We Missed You.

Remember that great run of colour injected style posts? Yeah? Now kiss them goodbye - the summer is slowly starting to fade, making sandals and barely there camis an unwise choice. Good timing really as my favourite metallic sandals (yup, those Aldo ones that haven't left my feet for the past two years) bit the dust just yesterday. RIP sandals, I really will miss you. On the bright side it means that I have an excellent excuse to order loads of new shoes - i'mma be ordering all the brogues and boots *drools*.

Before I write another three paragraphs about autumnal my shoe dreams (yep, I'm starting the dream collection - Vivienne Westwood's I'm coming for ya!), I thought I'd address a few new additions to my wardrobe that we hadn't caught on camera until last week. My Topshop jacket is quite possibly the best transitional jacket I've ever owned. It's light, but not too light, whilst being a very breathable material, so I don't find my temperature fluctuating too much in this. Making it perfect for days when the weather can't make up it's mind or I'm back and forth from Brighton to London (no joke, they're an hour apart but totally different climates) I also love that it looks great with a dress or jeans, despite the fact that it's not a short jacket at all. Well, maybe on most average height gals it might be...

And then we have the Zara dress. A very recent addition to my wardrobe which will be perfect for the Summer/Autumn transition. It's short sleeved, so keeps me a little warmer than a strappy dress and has a simple cut and pattern, so I can easily pair it with boots when things get chilly, all the while still allowing me to keep the bare legs going. Tights just don't feel right just yet!
