August to Autumn Style Inspiration

Tuesday, 20 August 2013

August is always a tricky month when it comes to style inspiration, as more often than not the weather leaves much to be desired. If you’re anything like me you feel guilty for not baring your bronzed pins in pretty dresses and sandals as it is officially supposed to be ‘summer’, but we need to start being a little more realistic (sorry to burst the summer bubble) and prepare for the autumn ahead of us and pull together august to autumn ready outfits, so here’s my guide:

Asos Metalic Print Paint Splash Velvet Tee Dress - I love the abstract paint splash design on this edgy but chic velvet dress. It’s the perfect balance of summer style with warming autumnal tones…breaking us in slowly and preparing us for autumn days.


Topshop Aubrey Open Side Chunky Buckle Boots- OK If I could design my perfect A/W ankle boot these would be spot on. I can’t stop wearing them and feel they add on-trend edge to any outfit. I especially love rocking them with bronzed legs (highly recommend Sienna X fake tan), cute frilly socks and a tee dress for the perfect August to autumn time outfit.
Zara Lamb Leather Jacket- I don’t know where I’d be without my leather jacket, this is a staple piece that every August or autumn wardrobe needs. A leather jacket can make a plain and simple outfit look trendy, it’s the ultimate finishing touch

Liliyang Mini Lina in Ebony Raven- This adorable but totally sophisticated bag is a classic and versatile accessory that not only looks fabulous (being held or worn by its chain), but features incredibly handy compartments to carry you perfectly into the autumn.
Dolce and Gabbana True Monica Collection Lipstick in Nude- Inspired by beautiful Italian movie star Monica Bellucci this new fabulous collection of lipsticks come in the most amazing shades wearable for summer and perfectly adaptable for autumn. My favourite shade of the moment being nude.
Laura Gravestock Written Heart Ring- This cute, understated single heart ring has quickly become my signature piece. The simplicity of this ring adds a subtle feminine touch to any look, and can be worn on its own or styled with other pieces, either way it’s gorgeous.
Lily Charmed Gold Feather Necklace- This gold dream feather necklace is made to be cherished and is a great signature piece necklace to be worn to compliment any style, be it a rock chic or more a slightly more sophisticated look. This necklace is hand finished using 925 sterling silver and dipped in 24 carat gold.
Barry M Gelly Nail Effects Nail Varnish in Passion Fruit- Complete your August to autumn look by painting your nails with this vibrant gelly looking colour. Bright enough to infuse fun and fresh summer vibes into any outfit, even if the rain is pouring.
