I just love the start of a new season, the time where I start planning a few purchases and browsing my favourite blogs, fashion sites such as Grazia Daily
and my huge catalogue of fashion retailer favourites to get ideas about looks I want to channel but never quite get around to pulling off. Of course temptation is everywhere and I could probably post a wish list every day for a month without quite getting through everything that’s caught my eye (but I won’t do that, I don’t want to become tedious!) but I did think I’d pop together a post with a few pieces that I’d love to make mine- you know, if I were a rich girl.

Basically what I’m loving most right now is that the pieces I enjoyed the most from Spring/Summer have been given an update for the cooler months ahead. Some of my favourite brands have totally upped their game and bought out some killer collections too, F&F at Tesco
have got some of the best knitwear and outerwear that I’ve seen so far and gain major bonus points for being available as you do your food shop- also lethal as I’m prone to forget fridge essentials at the best of times! I’m hoping to rustle up some pennies for chunky knits, all things suede and of course something feline themed! My most major mission though is for some heeled loafers, perfect for the office AND with mini skirts and chunky tights for weekend chic.
What are you coveting as we head in to Autumn? And where do you gain most inspiration from?

So, these photos really are rubbish- an experiment with early morning lighting but at the same time they kind of fit the theme of the post and so I’m sharing them regardless.
I’m not usually one to jump on trend bandwagons, I barely pay attention to them and buy what I think suits me instead…this season seems to be a little different though, there are several trends I’m really enjoying and one of those is monochrome. There’s something about the clean cut styles and bold contrast between black and white that really appeals to me. I have very chalk and cheese taste though, my second favourite trend is neon.
Another change for me is that I’m not usually a Topshop girl. I can usually quite happily take it or leave it whilst other bloggers fawn over every new arrival (this isn’t a criticism folks!) However my search for my favourite monochrome items on the high street led me to one place and one place only…behold!
This was just the tiniest selection of what I’m craving. All I need now is the Topshop budget; I find their prices hard to swallow at times…how do other people do it?
Happy March people; Spring is on it’s way!
