Every single autumn I have this huge urge to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe. It’s mainly to do with the fact that summer fashion doesn’t appeal to me a great deal because I’m not one for crop tops and I can’t really wear bardot tops and strappy dresses to work. So autumn is when I get the most excited about new clothes and trends. I plan on picking up a few pieces from my Autumn wishlist here. Most definitely number 6, 7 and 9. The top will be a perfect addition to my working wardrobe, the jacket just looks so damn cosy and the dress, well I can never resist something with stripes.
Autumn is also all about burgundy, mustard and deep wine colours so I’ll be searching for a few little additions to get my colour palette in order!
I hope you enjoy this little Autumn wishlist, I do love putting them together and getting all inspired about the new season.

I am incredibly late to the 90’s trend party. It’s been gathering speed for about a year now and I dragged my feet for about 10 months of that year. The 90’s trend just wasn’t something I wanted to get involved in.
Scrunchies, velvet, chokers (oh no), halter-necks and strappy crop tops (oh no no). I was playing no part in any of that.
But slowly and surely, after seeing others take the trend in different ways (no one quite like Kim K has, thankfully!) I’ve added one or two things to my wardrobe that do have a distinctive 90’s/pre-2000’s vibe to them.
This dress was the first piece. Bought with the idea in mind that it would be rather cute on a sunny beach holiday somewhere – that was a scenario that never materialised and so I’ve moved on to the next best thing. Adapting it to the milder climate of the UK was an easy task simply by adding a white crew neck tshirt underneath, something that was particularly popular in the 90’s. The slightly square neck of the dress also adds to the feel.
As mentioned earlier I have a complete aversion to chokers. On some people they look great, on me they make my neck look even shorter than normal. A shorter chain necklace is my alternative to this. And lastly a pair of trainers to finish off the whole vaguely 90’s look.
How have you been adapting the new trends to your personal style? Let me know in the comments as I love hearing all about how to make things look your own. As always you can follow me on Instagram for lots for autumnal photos coming soon, and on Bloglovin for all the new content around here.

I am highly anticipating an Indian Summer for us here in the UK. As far as I recall September, when we inevitably had to head back to school, is always beautiful. I’m hoping for more of the same this year.
These photos were taken on a very humid summer day, when we finally managed to pay a visit to the Bristol Botanical Gardens. After a summer of muggy humid summer days in the office I’ve become a bit of a pro at dressing for the occasion.
Keeping things loose is the key and this Asos dress is perfect. As I mentioned recently I’m quite the fan of midi dresses now and this dress ticks all the boxes. It’s light and breezy, but the midi length turns it into a dress that’s still suitable for everyday life in a city, rather than lounging on a beach.
It’s been a pretty amazing summer this year. From moving house (again), two weddings, wonderful week in Cornwall and starting a new job, it’s been all go for weeks now. I’m fully looking forward to slowing down a bit for these last few weeks, stretching out my time in the sun as much as possible before it’s time to huddle inside when winter gets here.
I’m still Instagramming like mad and you can follow me over here. You can also follow me on Bloglovin to catch the last few summery posts of this year.

I’m writing this post on a day similar to when the photos were taken – a gloriously sunny day. It seems that after half a summer of rain the UK has finally gotten its act together. But anyway, there’s me starting yet another post by commenting on the weather.
This Topshop midi dress is something I have been meaning to post about for a long time. I think I bought it back in about April(?) and immediately feel in love with it in the changing room. I have a bit of a problem though, of absolutely loving something when I’m trying it on the the shop, I buy it and then immediately feel like I can’t quite get away with it in, you know, real life.
Once I finally wore it out of the house last weekend I realise how stupid that is. I love the dress even more than before and I was just silly to let my insecurities get in the way. When I was younger, maybe 15 or 16, I would not have stepped a foot near a dress of this length. I was all about the short, short skirt. This is probably because I felt my legs were one part of me I could actually feel good about, and also because I didn’t want to come across as boring in a midi length dress.
As with most things, time and age have made me realise what I’m missing out on. All those wonderful midi length items that I’ve just said an automatic ‘No’ to, for the sake of not wanting to come across as old before my time. I also really like Marks and Spencer now too, how’s that for old.
Here’s to many more midi dresses and skirts in the future, hey! I’m especially looking forward to some sort of burgundy/wine coloured midi skirt teamed with ankle boots and a fedora in the autumn. Oh and a coffee in hand. Make sure you follow me on Instagram and Bloglovin to keep up with the last few summer-y posts before it’s all scarves and pumpkin spice lattes.

If you caught my latest wishlist post then you’ll know that I’ve been preparing for the first wedding since I was so small that I’m unable to remember any of it.
The time finally arrived last week when Dom and I headed to not one but two summer weddings. And this post is purely to show you what I wore for the occasion. I committed a minor fashion crime and wore the same outfit for both weddings, even down to my shoes, bag and accessories. In an ideal world I would have found two beautiful dresses to really make the most of the chance to dress up a bit. But to be honest, when it came to finding something I didn’t really know where to start!
In the end I went for this little Oasis number, because not only was it both slightly casual and slightly dressy, but it was also summer appropriate and in the sale. I also felt pretty confident in the knowledge that I probably wouldn’t end up looking like one of the bridesmaids in it. That was a faux pas I certainly didn’t want to make in front of a bunch of people I’d never met before.
My boyfriend seems to have reached the age where the weddings are (or will be very soon) coming thick and fast, but going to two in the space of a week has made me realise how different each wedding is to the next! Both were lovely, but these photos were taken at the first in Burford, Oxfordshire. I thought it was best to get them over with before there were any chances to get dinner down my front. Just joking. Kind of.
They were also taken with my iPhone as I thought it would be best for Dom not to get confused for the wedding photographer! Anyway I hope you enjoy and you can alway check out my Instagram for more of the action, and follow me on Bloglovin for more summery content.
