Suddenly it seems as though the high street is filled with all things warm, fuzzy and cosy – but who’s complaining. I fell in love with this gorgeous teddy jacket when I first saw it on She-in’s website, it was everything I loved, pink, red and discounted! Despite seeing them everywhere, I had originally been reluctant to purchase a teddy jacket as I knew I wanted to find one that was extra special and different to the cream and camel toned ones I’ve been seeing everywhere.
My favourite thing about this jacket is that I can dress it up a little bit more like I’ve done in these photos or I can just throw it over a sweatshirt and leggings and it’s just as cute. Saying that, I love the way it looks paired with these red check trousers and my favourite red and black ‘Freaky’ trainers from Schuh. Red and pink is my favourite colour combo, I’ve been really into clashing colours recently.

Returning to uni has definitely been a crazy busy few weeks, but I’m ready to get settled into some new blog content now. Autumn is my most favourite season for countless reasons, but mostly I adore the feeling of entering into a whole new season wardrobe. Swapping crop tops for thick knit jumpers and sandals for knee high boots, it’s so exciting to think of all the new outfit possibilities!
My favourite challenge that I’ve been setting myself recently has been seeing how much of my summer clothing I can wear into autumn, I’ve found that you can pretty much make anything work with a turtle neck layered underneath! Let me know if you’d like to see a post about wearing summer pieces into autumn, because that’s definitely an idea I’d love to work on. But with that in mind, the colour pallette I’ve been inspired by recently is bringing whites into winter.
Jumper – H&M
Trousers – Primark
Boots – H&M
From looking at my other posts I feel like you can tell that I love sticking to one colour scheme for an outfit, you can almost never go wrong. I think that the black accessories finish it off really well and give a subtle break from the white.
I had been searching for the perfect white jumper to layer over dresses and skirts for so long, and I finally found this one from H&M. H&M have so many thick knit white and cream jumpers like this one in store at the moment, so definitely have a look if you’re on the hunt! At £17.99 this one was a steal, and I love that it’s just the right length for layering or to be tucked into jeans like I’ve done here.
I’m also obsessed with these white corduroy jeans from Primark, they also do them in an appropriately autumnal rust colour, and a few others if my memory serves me correctly. I chose white as they were so similar to a pair I tried on in Zara a few weeks ago, but at only £12.00, these ones are much cheaper and just as comfortable.
Hope you enjoyed this post!

Even a few months ago, the idea of wearing animal prints just wasn’t something that had every really appealed to me. The likes of leopard, zebra and snake print all conjured images of tacky 00’s fashion in my mind, but then of course, that exact era is creeping back into our current wardrobes as I type this. My initial appreciation of the trend began when I was working at a magazine fashion cupboard and we had two incredible pairs of boots from Office sent in, one white pair and one brown snake print. They’re called Ambassador boots, and I knew I just had to get myself a pair when I saw them!
Dress – Zara
Boots – Office
I know that these boots are going to be the most amazing statement shoes to get me through A/W 18, although as you can see I’ve been trying my best to make them work in this London heatwave! Not long after I got these boots, I found their perfect partner! I have to say, if you’re looking to get yourself some animal print, Zara is the place to go. This button down dress was £29.99 and is completely heatwave approved by me, don’t be fooled by the 3/4 length sleeves, the material is totally lightweight.
Necklace – vintage

I’d like to think that I invented double snake print? Mixing prints has always been so daunting to me, as a complete fashion rule follower I’ve always been a strict one print per outfit kinda gal, but as you can see I’ve been branching out! Combining different prints can be really easy as long as you’re paying attention to the different colours and strengths of the prints that you’re using, this dress and boot combo works as the print on the boots is a lot less stronger and darker than the print on the dress. In this case, you definitely don’t want to be too matchy-matchy.

Trousers – Zara
Sandals – Topshop
Soon after my snake print moment, I discovered these leopard print trousers in Zara, these are a great versatile piece as they can be worn casually, as I’ve done above or for a night out with a lace bralet or bodysuit and heels. Leopard print is an effortless way to ease yourself in to the animal print trend, it’s classic and goes with almost everything. It’s also easy to mix with other prints, as I’ve done here with this polka dot print top. I even paired them with my snake print boots on a different day!
