Giveaway – Win a JORD Apple Watch Band

*PR sample.

Hey peeps! I have a giveaway post for you today. This time you have the chance to win a JORD Apple Watch Band of your choice excluding limited edition watch bands. I love JORD watches and bands. I recently got my hands on one of their Apple Watch Bands and I really like it. It is a pretty pink leather band and it looks so amazing. I love the fact that I now have an extra band for my Apple Watch.

Changing watch bands gives the watch a completely different look. It makes me feel like I have 2 different Apple watches. I am hoping to grow my watch band collection so I have many bands in my favourite shades. That would be so cool.

Autumn Fashion Essentials for the School Run

*Affiliate links.

The kids are back in school and the school run is now in full swing. With autumn approaching, this is the best time to ensure you have all your autumn fashion essentials for the school run. The last thing you need is to find that your waterproof coat from last year no longer looks good. Here are some autumn fashion essentials for the school run –

 

Regatta Women’s Birchdale Jacket

The mornings tend to be cold this time of the year. So a good light jacket is needed for the season. I need a couple of light jackets to get me through the school run especially in the morning. You should invest in some if you are in need of light jackets this autumn. This Regatta Women’s Birchdale Jacket is a great option. It comes with a hood which is so handy, and there are many colours available. It is waterproof and breathable. Also, it has a durable water repellent finish which is amazing.

I love having hoodies at the ready for the autumn/winter season. They come in handy when it is dry and not cold enough for a jacket. I really like this Levi’s Women’s Batwing Hoodie Plain Regular Fit Long Sleeve Hoodie. It is super stretchy and looks like great quality. I am yet to have a Levi’s hoody so I can see myself grabbing this off the Amazon Fashion website very soon.

This right here is a great jumper to have this season. I love the simple design and you can also grab one in white or pink.

You can easily find me in leggings even in the winter months. I find them very comfortable and easy to style. When I can’t think of what to wear, my leggings and a top come to the rescue. I wear them a lot on school mornings and I have recently bought some more to add to my collection. This FUTURO FASHION Women’s Full Length Cotton Leggings is a great option. They come in different colours, so there are shades for everyone.

School runs are never good in uncomfortable shoes. Especially when you are all running late and have to work really fast. This Skechers Women’s Go Walk Joy Slip On Trainers is a great footwear for the school run. I have a similar pair and I really like it. It has been with me for many years and still does the job nicely. Sketchers is a great footwear brand and I recommend it to anyone after quality trainers this season. 

 

 

What do you think of these autumn fashion essentials for the school run? How do you stay comfortable when out and about in autumn?

 

 

How many garments do we really need in our wardrobes?

*Collaborative post.

Shopping no longer feels as guilt free as it used to back in the day. A lot has changed now and we consumers tend to think twice before splashing out on new pieces and accessories. Times have changed and we have all had to adjust to the new times. I no longer shop like I used to a few years ago, and I think twice before I add any new additions to my wardrobe.  But the question remains – How many garments do we really need in our wardrobes? Let’s see if I can break this down –

 

How many garments do we really need in our wardrobes?

Many of us think it is easier to shop for men than for women, but it is pretty much the same process most of the time. I remember being shocked back in 2017 when it was revealed that British women spend an average of £74 per month on clothes compared to British men who spend an average of £100. That same study also revealed that the average man owns about 56 pieces of clothing but only wears about 62% of these regularly. Women on the other hand own 95 but only wear 59%.

Tops and blouses

With tops, the best way to go is to have about six to ten pieces per wardrobe. Having said that, this is just an estimate. The amount of tops you would need in your wardrobe depends on your lifestyle, employment, budget and so on, but it is a guide to go by. I like to mix and match my tops with other pieces to create different looks. This works great for me and I find I get more wear out of each and every piece that way.

Pants, skirts and shorts

With pants, I like to have about six to eight of them in my wardrobe. That way I always have options but not too many that I forget about them. One denim expert recommended having about three pairs of jeans in the wardrobe and it makes perfect sense! There is no point having over ten or twenty pairs of jeans in your wardrobe. It is likely you won’t be able to wear half of the jeans most of the time.

It also makes sense to make some room for skirts and shorts especially in the summer months. I like to have a couple of these each for when the weather allows.

Outerwear is key

Having a great quality outerwear is very important. They are great wardrobe assets as they can help finish off any look. I like to have about 4 outerwear pieces. The key to getting your outwear pieces to stay with you for awhile is to invest a bit more in them. I always recommend at least two casual jackets, one waterproof jacket and one or two blazers in different designs.

Blazers are particularly important as they can take you from the office to the restaurant effortlessly. You can put on a blazer for a meeting at work underneath a stunning dress shirt, or top and skirt for example.

Shoes are made for walking

Shoes are super important. They have the power to take an outfit to a whole new level, and they can also completely ruin an outfit. I must confess, O like to have a couple of pairs in my wardrobe but you don’t really need as many pairs of shoes as you think you need. Three good pairs of shoes would work for many – One pair of smart shoes for work and events, one pair of boots for when the weather demands, and a pair of trainers for casual outings.

 

So how many garments do we really need in our wardrobes?

I would say between 18 – 25 garments. At the end of the day, this is just a guide. You may need more or less depending on the weather, lifestyle, budget and space. I hope this post helps you rethink every new wardrobe purchase you want to make. Have a great week.
