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!
