There’s only one way to celebrate the arrival of autumn in my book and that’s with copious amounts of cashmere…and a healthy side of coffee of course!
The minute summer starts to dwindle, my thoughts have already begun to turn to sweater weather – more specifically, cashmere sweaters. There’s nothing quite like pulling on a soft cosy jumper when the temperature starts to drop.
It makes a stroll around town in the autumn sunshine feel extra special. Coffee in hand, on the look out for piles of fallen leaves…
I discovered ASOS White a few seasons ago and have to say, I’m utterly hooked.
And no surprises when you look at the pieces on offer – it’s very COS and therefore very me. ASOS White is modern and minimalistic peppered with unusual cuts and silhouettes…and quite frankly, I want it all!
There are some brilliant basics that would become timeless wardrobe staples sprinkled with a smattering of dresses that make me think I should just go ahead and buy one even though I don’t have the occasion to wear it. Hell, for some of these, I’d create the occasion!
What more could I say about autumn to let you know that it’s truly my favourite season? If you’re a long term reader of The Online Stylist, you’ll be used to my rising excitement levels that surface whenever the first leaves start to fall!
Today I’m thrilled to be partnering with one of goto lifestyle brands, The White Company, to talk about all the elements that for me, help to make the perfect autumn weekend.
Whenever I think of autumn, the first things that spring to mind are cosy layers, the deep oranges and reds of the trees in the New Forest and that overriding urge to start adding a few seasonal touches to the house.
I constantly find myself under the influence of magazines, blogs, Instagram, Pinterest… the list of potential temptations that have me shopping in a heartbeat seems to grow at the same rate as my bank balance shrinks. Funny that, maybe the two are related…
You may (or may not, depending on your own bank balance), be pleased to know that I recently discovered a whole other dangerously influential source – Endource.
It’s a one-stop, subscriber shop where can find the very best high street and high end picks from the fashion press. Covetable pieces curated by fashion editors and influential bloggers alike all in one place. Yours truly even has a profile page here!
fringe loafers for fall
Noticed the plethora of fringe loafers with a serious Gucci vibe appearing everywhere? Me too.
I confess it took me a few days a while to get on board with these but after lusting after all the real deal Gucci gorgeousness floating unattainably out of my price tag reach, I may yet succumb to a high street version.
Flats, block heels (my favourite), with buckles, with glitter… there’s even an ankle…
