Lust of the week: Hooded faux fur coat

Faux fur is everywhere this season - and what better way to embrace the trend than investing in a faux fur jacket? This vintage-inspired one from Story Of Lola will become a real staple in anyone's wardrobe and is one that can be worn for winters to come. Plus, it has a hood to give it that extra cosy factor!

Outfit: Burberry-inspired coat and scarf

Coat: ASOS
Scarf: Gift (similar)
Boots: c/o Missguided

I've taken inspiration from Burberry AW14 for this outfit, and tucked my scarf into my coat belt. I love how this season lets us create outfits solely with our coats and means we can be creative in different ways (and I can wear my sweats underneath and no one will realise!)

Outfit: Waterfall jacket and blanket scarf

Jacket: Boohoo (similar)
Scarf: Zara
Dress: Whistles
Jeans: Topshop
Heels: ASOS (similar)

It's been a pretty busy week for me this week - as well as various work commitments, I went along to see Kele (he of Bloc Party fame) with Jack Daniels on Monday, and Friday afternoon was spent at the Laura Ashley hotel for a bloggers' afternoon tea (I'll blog about this properly next week). This weekend I've been entertaining and trying to find time to squeeze in outfit photos - I love autumn but it can be quite difficult to find good light! 

I've been eyeing up Zara's blanket scarves ever since they hit the shop floor back in the summer. This one is so big and warm - I'll definitely be wearing it as a poncho-esque jacket in the coming months. I'm also loving pale blue and khaki at the moment so the colours of this scarf are perfect.

Lust of the week: Topshop khaki joggers

Military is a big trend this season and I love how the high street is embracing it in an un-fancy dress kind of way. These joggers from Topshop also tick the box of the ever-present sports luxe trend and are a great alternative to your skinny jeans.

Outfit: White jumper, white culottes

Jumper: Selected
Clutch: Etsy
Culottes: Warehouse
Boots: Kurt Geiger (similar)

I'm so glad culottes are sticking around this season - I love the silhouette they give and they're a lot more practical than midi skirts (especially when that gust of wind blows when the tube leaves the station... I hate to think how many of my fellow commuters have seen my bum cheeks). 

For Autumn/Winter I'm swapping the crop tops that I paired with culottes throughout Summer with chunky knits for an oversized, season-appropriate look.
