Snuggle Up in Autumn Knits

on Wednesday, 03 October 2012. Posted in Shopping, Fashion

Perhaps it’s just me, but the temperature in the UK appears to have dropped recently and although it would be premature to declare that winter is on its way, there is certainly a chill in the air that hints at the continued shift in the weather over the coming months. This new autumn bite has left me reaching for my comfy knits and warmer coats earlier that I expected. That being said, this is British weather we’re talking about and its continual unpredictability is legendary.

House of Fraser Style Challenge

House of Fraser Dress Up Jacket Necklace Dress Tights Bag Sunglasses Shoes

Never one to do anything by halves, when I saw a blog post from House of Fraser asking bloggers to pull together a key look for next season, I sensed a challenge afoot. Rather than simply listing the items, I saw an opportunity to be a little bit more creative.

After some quick brainstorming I decided to create a paper doll that I could style with my favourite items from House of Fraser. I have fond memories of paper dolls as my first foray into the world of fashion. Long before I was sewing clothes for Barbie and Sindy, I was carefully cutting out outfits to style my flimsy friends.

The weather may have been abysmal for most of the summer, but that hasn’t stopped the wedding season from winding up into full swing. So far this year I’ve been to two weddings and I’ve got three more to go. Two of which are at that slightly awkward time of year where summer becomes autumn and the already unpredictable British weather becomes exceptionally erratic. Bearing that in mind I started to research suitable wedding outfits and came to the conclusion that a maxi dress is the way forward. Long enough to keep you warm in a cold breeze and loose enough to keep you cool whilst standing in the sun – the ideal wedding guest outfit.

The Collection Sale

French Connection - Summer Sizzle DressFrench Connection - Mimosa Mist JacketFrench Connection Sale Items

Sale shopping, two words that normally strike fear into my heart. Crowds of bargain hungry women fully prepared to trample over anyone who gets in their way. Gorgeous clothes hung randomly on racks and frequently strewn across the floor - more akin to a jumble sale than a retail environment. But not so in the Reading branch of French Connection. Not an item out of place, friendly staff and trample free toes, a winning result! This haven from the sale starved crowds that had taken over The Oracle proved to be a wonderful retreat for me to indulge in some genteel browsing and trying on. It did however, result in some damage to my bank account and my husband’s patience.
