The beautiful and talented Amy Adams is on the cover of ELLE UK November 2016 and she looks so cute. I love the cover. She looks so relaxed and pretty, like a typical girl next door, and I love it. I also love the fact that she is channeling her autumn style in Balenciaga. Loving the autumn vibes.

This issue promises to be a good read. In her interview with ELLE UK, Amy discusses her struggles to balance family and work, being compared to other women in Hollywood, the issue with the pay gap and being over 40 in a competitive industry.

‘The negotiation comes to a standstill and I have to make a choice, which a lot of women do. I can walk away. But I choose not toโ€ฆThis is an issue not just about women’s pay; we need to work on how women are viewed in society and then the pay will be reflected in thatโ€ฆRight now time is more important to me. So that’s what I negotiate because any time I’m working, I’m not spending with my daughter.’

‘I gave up wanting to look like Charlize when I was, like, 12. I have short legs, I’m athletic, I have pale skin that reacts to cold and hot moisture. You just have to accept who you are. In those comparisons, I always lost.’

This five-time Oscar nominee is also the star of Tom Ford’s new film Nocturnal Animals and Sci-Fi drama Arrival, both of which are garnering five-star reviews and Oscar buzz at the moment.

I would love to read this issue. I can see myself grabbing a copy. I have always liked Amy Adams. I find her very interesting so I would naturally want to know more about her. The price usually puts me off but I have been feeling generous lately so I may get this.

What do you think of this issue? Are you a fan of Amy Adams?

OOTD: Style Comfort Zone

Black and grey Outfit Image

Black and silver look so good together. Who would have thought? I love how minimal and chic they look styled together. This outfit has autumn style written all over it!

I collaborated with the lovely people at Boohoo to bring to you this black and silver outfit. If you remember my last collaboration with Boohoo, it was the Black Friday Outfit post I featured sometime last year, which I enjoyed styling because it was an all black outfit. This time, the idea behind this collaboration is to feature a secret piece styled in my own way. This secret piece is this Emmaline satin slip dress I have on right here.

Now to be honest, I won’t have picked this dress at all. I won’t even have considered it. So when it arrived in the post, I was a bit disappointed. But when it came to styling it, I find it so easy to style. I went for black accessories because I knew they would look good amazing paired next to the dress. And I went for a leather jacket and ankle boot because they add an edge to the look, and they also usher in Autumn. I am now looking forward to Autumn Fashion, can you tell?

I have now fallen in love with this satin slip dress. And I need to thank Boohoo for taking me out of my style comfort zone. I won’t have pictured it this good. I now need to experiment some more with my style.

OOTD: Ladies, Start Layering..

With the clocks going back over the weekend, and the cold weather gradually settling in, I am happy to have stylish, interesting pieces to keep me looking and feeling good.

One thing I love about the autumn/winter season, apart from the beautiful golden leaves, and cool weather, is the opportunity to rock layers. I think wearing layers is the easiest way to look effortlessly stylish and comfortable. Do you agree?

Autumn Layering

Debenhams

I have recently rearranged my wardrobe for the season, (I do that twice a year because my wardrobe is not large enough to house all my clothes and accessories) and I am so excited to show off some pieces I have set aside to feature on the blog this season, so keep your eyes open.

I was recently asked to select some pieces from the Autumn/Winter collection at Debenhams, and I knew the pieces I wanted instantly. I wanted a burgundy/dark red knitted jumper for a while now, it isย  perfect foundation piece for layering, so that was the first on my list. I think the dark red colour is so beautiful, and the cream collar is dead cute. This knitted jumper is so British.

Fashion Outfit

Layering

Another item I have wanted in my wardrobe for a while now is a pair of black high Chelsea Boots, I have wanted this for ages now. I think these boots are very versatile, and they look great when paired with skinny jeans/leggings, dresses and skirts, a great all-rounder. A must-have this season, and this is a perfect pair with a perfect fit and easy to walk-in heel.

Autumn Booties

A classic snood is another fashion essential for everyone this autumn. I went for a monochrome windowpane checked print, perfect for styling loose or doubled over. A snood is great to fight off the cold chills, and look stylish doing it.

Marc Jacobs

I also got the opportunity to review this gorgeous Marc Jacobs sunglasses from the lovely people at Sunglasses Shop and if you are a regular reader, you will know how much I love my sunnies. Adding this gorgeous pair from the talented designer – Marc Jacobs, to my luxury sunglasses collection was the peak of my week. I love the oversize, quirky, butterfly shape, and the black and white colour. This is now my new favourite pair.

Autumn Layers

 

Ladies, do not compromise on style this autumn, get a wardrobe refresh and start layering up now.
