Hello again,

I think I have come to the conclusion that autumn truly is my favourite season, for a number of reasons. One – the fashion and colour palettes that come into trend this time of year are just so pleasing to the eye. Matching your ensembles to your surroundings as all of the leaves transition to the most beautiful array of colours is a winner in any lover of clothes’ eyes! Two – the festivities. I am actually slightly heartbroken that the build up to Halloween is now over – last night I dressed up as Daenerys Targaryen, and today I am back to my boring old brown hair. Can I just be a Khaleesi everyday?

I could present a huge list as to why I adore autumn, but I wouldn’t want to bore you. One thing I am loving, though, is the trend of contrast stitching on denim. It provides any old jacket, skirt or pair of jeans an individualistic twist that causes it to stand out from all of the others. I picked up this skirt in the Topshop sale; it was such a steal. I have always been a bit apprehensive about midi skirts on me – I was convinced that the length caused my legs to look stumpy. But after falling in love and investing in two midi skirts as of late, maybe it’s time to push my inhibitions aside…






I also adore the little slit at the front of the skirt as it differentiates itself from the classic midi-skirt style that you see everywhere. I’ve owned a few denim skirts in my time, yet I’ve never really stuck with them and ended up selling them on. I feel as if I may be on to a winner with this one, though. It’s perfect for more or less every season, and not too tight that your legs feel restricted when they walk! (Another perk of the front slit!)





A pair of patent boots and a trench coat is perfect with a skirt like this for achieving that classic autumnal look. To casual this outfit, I’d simply swap my patent boots for some Doc Martens Chelsea boots…

So that’s a wrap…

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading into yet another trend I am loving this autumn! Until next time,
