The lovely Voucher Codes people asked me to show how I would take summer outfits into autumn/winter, just by using a few key pieces. I immediately thought of loads of ways I could update some of my favourite summer outfits..


• URBAN OUTFITTERS HAT • NEW LOOK TOP • TOPSHOP JEANS • SECOND HAND FLIP FLOPS • CHARITY SHOP CARDIE • NEXT BOOTS

Here I updated a casual daytime outfit by taking the sun hat away, adding a simple cardigan and some statement boots. I've seen a lot of animal print boots around recently, but I've been after these since I fell in love with them at the Next a/w press day.



• UNIQLO SHIRT • LEE COOPER SHORTS • NEW LOOK JEANS • ASOS COLLAR PIN •

Coloured denim is one of my new favourite things, and this cotton shirt is so light it can be worn from the summer into the autumn. These high waisted skinny jeans and collar pins give the outfit a whole new edge. Collar accessories are everywhere at the moment, and I love this beautiful pearly pin.


• H&M DRESS • SACRED STITCHES TOTE • PRIMARK BELT, BROGUES, TIGHTS AND COAT • TOPSHOP SATCHEL

This versatile floral dress gets a lot of wear from me! It's simple enough to wear casually, but pretty enough to be dressed up. As I live in England, a waterproof bag in the autumn/winter months is essential. This satchel is roomy enough to fit everything I need in it, and smartens up an outfit.


• MOTEL ROCKS PLAYSUIT • OFFICE PLATFORMS • TOPSHOP TIGHTS

This is a simple and pretty going-out outfit. Playsuits are great for chucking on and romping around in. Matching your tights to your heels is a great way to make your legs look really long, and keeps your legs nice and toasty at the same time! These tights are lovely and thick, and I'm sure I'll wear them a lot as it gets colder!


Have you started thinking about your autumn/winter wardrobe? How do you update your outfits?

  5. I love every single pair of shoes you're wearing in this post especially the Next boots and Office platforms. I'm quite excited about transitioning into A/W the 'summer' weather in Wales is leaving a lot to be desired.

  12. Can't even put in to words how much I love this post, I always struggle with this awkward transition between seasons - especially when Scotland is under a constant rain cloud!

  14. I love the details in these outfits.. The little collar pin, the leopard print boots, the matching tights/shoe colour combo. They really make the outfits. Your new tattoo looks great! Hope you are settling in back home with your mama now. xx

  15. Loving all the rich autumny shades, I much prefer A/W fashion to S/S! Love all of these gorgeous outfits - couldn't have picked better myself :-)

  16. I love this post! I think everything is really spot on. I usually just keep most of my summer clothes and try to layer them as much as possible come winter or just add a lot of cozy cardies, which is why i think the first outfit is just perfect ;)

  19. I love all your outfits! Especially the dress with tights, this is how I end up in winter as I cannot let my sun-dresses go in the colder weather. I have to get my hands on coloured tights though to mix it up a bit. Plus I adore that satchel.
    Oh, and your new tattoo is so cute, love the placement too. xx

  22. Lovee that animal print desert shoes!!

    Oo I've got that Office platforms but in cobalt blue, the ankle straps are a little too small. Same for you? I really hope they will stretch a little in a time being, making it more comfortable!
