|Trench coat - New Look // Cat dress - H&M // Ankle boots - New Look // Leather bag - Next|
I don't know about you but I much prefer autumn / winter fashion, so as soon as it hit September, I couldn't wait to get my shop-on for the next few months' wardrobe staples. Whilst on a little shopping trip last week I picked up this gorgeous caramel trench coat from New Look. I absolutely love the faux leather trims that give the coat a luxe feel. It was very reasonably priced at £39.99 and I know I will get so much wear out of it. I decided to opt for a size bigger so that I can fit plenty of layers underneath. Oh how I love layering knitted jumpers and cosy cardigans. Winter, you really are my favourite.
I also picked up this cute black and white cat face dress from H&M. As much as I set out to purchase 'grown up' clothes, I can never resist adorable animal prints. The dress is made from quite a thick material, which I'm kind of hoping is to compensate for its short length? ;) Haha. It has a chunky exposed zip at the back and is perfect for casual-wear.
In case you are wondering where I am in these photos (as I'm not in my usual garden spot) I actually popped to Bolsover Castle at lunch time for a little walk with James. I'm lucky to live so close to so many lovely places so I am going to try and take my future outfit photos elsewhere to offer a little variety!
Have you picked up any key a/w pieces yet or are you still holding onto summer for as long as possible?
