The Belt Bag

Jumper: COS (similar)
Trousers: Zara (similar)
Bag: Zara (similar)
Trainers: Vans 

The bum bag. I never thought I'd see the day when I actually owned and wore one (too many memories of dodgy tourist outfits when holidaying in France in the '90s) but I'm a fully fledged convert. This leather bum bag (or belt bag as I believe it's now called) is now one of my favourite accessories, thanks to its clean shape and the ability it gives me to go completely hands-free, just carrying the necessities.

Revisiting Autumnal Dressing

Jumper: ASOS
Trousers: Mango (similar)
Trainers: Vans 

Now we're fully into October I'm all about that autumnal dressing again. The lightweight knits are starting to come out, as are some of last season's staples - like these high-waisted Mango trousers that I'm very much looking forward to carry on wearing over the next few months.

The Fail-safe Pieces

Coat: ASOS
Top: COS
Trousers: COS
Shoes: Zara 

These are the fail-safe pieces I've been returning to again and again lately. Those relaxed yet slightly tailored shapes and cuts that are just about passable in the office but feel like an instant comfort blanket when I'm stumbling around at 6:30am trying to get ready while simultaneously trying not to wake the whole house up. 

I've been struggling with the change of the seasons in the past few weeks. Those long dark nights and even darker mornings seem to have made me a lot more tired than usual, so reaching for those pieces that are essentially an extension of lounge wear is a pretty good compromise.

The Boyfriend Pyjama Shirt

Shirt: ASOS (similar)
Jeans: Weekday
Boots: Zara (similar)

If you've been following me for a while you'll know I'm a fan of anything loose, oversized and with a few masculine details. Well, I've gone one step further and started raiding my boyfriend's wardrobe for a few pieces here and there (and cunningly doubled my clothing collection in the process) when I become a bit bored with my own. I've been pinching this ASOS pyjama-style shirt quite a bit recently, changing it up slightly with rolled-ups sleeves and a plunging neckline (this is the time when my A cups come in handy) so it's less boyfriend-leftovers, more autumnal-feminine-chic (at least that's what I'm telling myself).

The Leather Biker Jacket

Leather Jacket: Topshop (similar)
Shirt: COS
Trousers: COS
Trainers: Vans 

I feel as though all I ever talk about is the weather on this blog but as it dictates my wardrobe, it's pretty apt. I'm in the middle of that weird spell where a blazer is a bit too light, a coat too heavy and knitwear heavier still, which means I'm in a bit of a style conundrum (first world problems). Enter the leather biker jacket. This is one I've had in my wardrobe for years and recently retrieved from my parents' house, but the best thing about this kind of piece is that it only gets better with age. Get a similar one from Topshop here.
