My take on the perfect autumnal outfit

Shop my look; 

Fur gilet: Topshop- old season 
Jumper: Primark
Skirt: Topshop- old season
Boots: Miss selfridge
Bag: Topshop - old season 

I love autumn fashion, I really do- that's number 1083 on my list of things I adore about all things autumnal- just in case you was wondering. I know I do like to bang on about my love of cosy nights, and how it's now acceptable to wrap yourself up like a cocoon in your duvet, because's cold okay.

But, believe me when I say big chunky scarves, heeled ankle boots and fur everything are my very favourite things about the colder season. So this is how this outfit came about, I chucked all of my fave pieces together, and badda-bing-badda-bang, the perfect autumnal outfit. 

A fur gilet and roll neck jumper- that was a bargain at £6, may I add- make for the cosiest of all cosy outfits when paired together; every girl needs this combination of comfort in their lives. The dogtooth skirt is also a winner as it goes with pretty much anything. You know, it's one of those pieces of clothing you just need hanging proudly in your wardrobe! I would mention my ankle boots, but as they made an appearance in my last post, I shan't- they're gorgeous, so they speak for themselves anyway. 

So, that's me signed out as Gok Wan for the day, what would your ideal autumnal outfit be?

Let me introduce you all to my new fashion project...

Shop my look- 
Hat: Topshop 
Jacket: New Look -similar 
Jeans: Topshop 
Bag: Topshop - old season 

You know I always said that I love fashion, but blogging about fashion bored me to tears? Well, I've kinda had a change of heart since then. Yep, you guessed right... I've decided that I'm going to give standing in the street, posing like I love myself a shot- all in aid of sharing my all time fave outfits with you lot, of course. 

For months now I've been stalking all of the top fashion bloggers thinking 'maybe I could give that a go'. It just feels the right thing to do as I always have loved fashion and dressing up. And that's when I roped my grandma in to be my very own personal David Bailey (photographer). So shoutout to my grandma for being patient with me whilst I posed rather awkwardly in the garden... You've definitely came on leaps and bounds from the days where you used to take about five minutes to take one, out of focus photo!

So, from here on in you can now expect to see a few fashion type posts uploaded every now and then. I promise I will get better at this posing malarkey, but until then I do give you permission to do a little laugh at me- put it this way a few tips from you fellow bloggers would be very much appreciated! 

Oh, and nobody warned me that fashion blogging is harder than it looks <actually, scrap that; a lot bloody harder than it looks. I will stop wanting to run off and hide when an old woman looks at me gone out, right?!
