OOTD: It Feels Like Autumn

autum-fashion-image

The brown leaves are starting to appear and it is beginning to feel a lot like Autumn. I love how cool this season is, and the layering trend is the best! You should all know how I feel about the autumn (or fall season, depending on where you are) season by now, and if you don’t, say hello to my favourite season of the year.

I am so looking forward to getting my blazers and jackets out. This leather waterfall jacket is one of my favoruite jackets at the moment. I love the colour and the design, and the fact that it is faux leather. I got this piece a few months ago but I have only worn it once so I am looking forward to styling it a few times this season.

I wore this outfit to a meeting with a client over the weekend, and it worked brilliantly. I like that fact that is a chic and smart look; not too professional, and not too dressed up; just perfect.

The white cutout pencil dress is a new wardrobe addition. I got it in the summer sale some weeks back and I like it. It is a fabulous dress for formal and informal events. It can take you from the office to the bar easily. And it is super easy to style up or down. I adore multi-tasking pieces like this white beauty.

I hardly wear white, I used to think it was a money down the drain. But I am glad to announce I no longer think that. I do like white, and I think it looks good on me so I will be adding more white to my wardrobe, but I won’t be going overboard shopping white.

OOTD: The Show Must Go On

OOTD Picture

 

The first half of 2016 is over. And usually around this time of the year, I like to reflect on how my year has been so far. So I know if I am heading in the right direction or not. I am a bit of an organised freak, so I like to keep an eye on any aspect of my life. 2016 has been fab to be honest. My family and friends are well. I am well. The summer weather has been great in the last couple of days, although I am still suffering from hay fever, and it got worse last weekend, but I am hoping to be free of it very soon, crossing my fingers, and my toes.

Fashion and Style Police is growing and my income reports are also looking good, which is fab. This blog started as a hobby, then became a part-time job, and is now a full-time job. I even have a lovely lady working with me to keep this blog alive and kicking, so I am happy I am reaping the fruits of my labour, and all my efforts have not been in vain.

My Book – How to Cash In as a Blogger is also a bit popular on Amazon (please leave me a review on Amazon if you haven’t done so already), so I feel extremely blessed.

Overall, the first half of the year has been fantastic, and I am raising my glass to the second half of the year, hoping it is even better.

Now over to this outfit. I wore this outfit some days ago. We were visiting friends and family in another city and I wanted a simple/casual outfit, so I went for this. I also had on this gorgeous rose gold Grand Classic Michelle Keegan Coin Necklace by Sparkling Jewellery, and it got a lot of attention. It is a fine delicate necklace, and the coin design makes it even more beautiful and special. Plus in came in my favourite shade of gold – Rose Gold.

I fell in love with this necklace as soon as I laid eyes on it. It came in a very cute package, it was impossible to not fall in love. It retails for only Β£35, which I find very affordable. Sparkling Jewellery also has so many other unique necklace, bracelet and ring designs, with light price tags so you will be spoilt for choice on their website.

OOTD: The Monochrome Look*

Fashion Blogger UK Image Picture

I am currently obsessed with black pieces, like you should know already, with me wearing this sexy Miss Selfridge Midi Black Dress last week, and this elegant Lace Black Dress by Phase Eight, last week as well. Black has an amazing slimming effect, suits all body types, and is so easy to accessorise. What is there not to love right?

How is the weather at your end? My end has been fab. I am loving the sunshine, I can feel summer approaching, and it is getting me in the mood for a holiday. Thomas Cook has some amazing deals on at the moment, with offers like Β£100 off a Las Vegas trip, Β£150 off a return trip to Orlando Florida, and many other cool offers. I think it is fair to say I deserve a proper outside the UK holiday, so I will be looking into booking a holiday soon. Speaking of holidays, have you got any planned for the rest of the year?

Now back to this outfit, I got this monochrome short sleeve T-shirt dress some months ago. It is one of the spring/summer newbies in my wardrobe, and I have worn it quite a few times already. It is one of those tops, you can dress up and down easily, which makes it one of my favourites at the moment. On lazy days, when I can’t think, I can just throw it up with a pair of leggings/jeggings and flats, and I am a good to go. You need everyday pieces like this in your wardrobe, they make life a lot easier some days.
