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.

If I were asked to describe my wardrobe in terms of a palette; I think the word ‘neutral’ would be used the most. Whilst I like a bold print as much as the next blogger, there is no doubt that neutral shades appeal to me the most. I find that as I get older I’m more interested in buying clothes that complement the other items in my wardrobe. Gone are the hazy days of impromptu shopping trips and spur of the moment purchases. Now each purchase is a carefully considered investment, which I justify with the question "what do I own that I could wear it with?". Neutral shades are easy to pair for obvious reasons and being someone who favours bold  accessories, I enjoy being able to accessorise an outfit without ending up looking like a wannabe Lady Gaga.
