So as you can see from the title – this was meant to be a lovely outfit post – but I took these photos when it was ONE OF THE MOST WINDY DAYS EVER. And wind RUINS ALL PHOTOS. ok – not all – sometimes it can do a nice flutter of a floaty dress. Sometimes it can pick up a nice breeze through your hair.
But not in this case – this case it was wind vs me. And the wind won. Hair everywhere. Can’t see my face in 99% of these photos. We actually gave up shooting because it was so ridiculous – but here are some hilarious windswept photos for your amusement.
FYI – just so we are perfectly clear – I am talking about WIND as in WEATHER – not wind as in stomach issues.
ANYWAY – back to clothing. I wanted to post this outfit regardless of my losing battle with the elements, because I am obsessed with these gorgeous items of clothing and accessories.
Starting with my number one bae right now: the coat.
This fur coat is literally the best thing to happen to me this Autumn. I am not going to lie – when I was buying it, I thought, “oh – it’s not that cheap – maybe I will just take it home and try it on, and then maybe take it back to save some pennies”. Sneaky I know, but I just want to show it to someone because I love it. And what happened? I wore it for these photos – fell so madly in love – that yes, it is still in my wardrobe, and yes I have removed the tags, and yes I have worn it to every single event in the past couple of weeks – weddings, blogger events, cinema, dinner dates…
I LOVE IT. The colour is perfection – pale millennial pink and oh my god it is so soft. PLUS it really reminds me of a coat I had when I was like 8… and I am a BIG one for nostalgia, so therefore I felt like I was betraying young me if I took this coat back. The guilt.
So the coat stays. And I know I will wear it every single day until Summer 2018.
Next up – corduroy skirt.
YAS – I am getting really hooked on skirts this Autumn. Again – this baby is a great colour. Super comfy. Rides up a bit when I walk anywhere, so have to keep pulling it down – but I think that is more to do with my ever increasing hip size – rather than a design flaw.
And then up next – my new bag – say hello. Furry bags are MAJORLY in right now so I snapped up this one and another fluffy-all-over bag (in a post to come) as soon as I could.
(I actually can’t find this one on the website – PANIC – but I have listed a few more options below!! I am sure it will come back in stock asap!)
I love the leather bucket shape of this bag, the fake-croc strap and the mega fluffy furry strap of life.
So all in all – 3 of my favourite autumnal pieces. Fur coat, fluffy bag, corduroy skirt.
