Now, I’m not purporting to be some kind of style icon here – as I write this sat is my two-year old Primark joggers and ‘Breaking Bad’ T-shirt (the same one I wore during labour) it feels ironic to be writing about my autumn/winter high street fashion picks. In fact at 7pm today, just as I’d got Taylor to bed, I looked in the mirror and saw the tag in my maxi dress peaking out AT THE FRONT. I’d only worn it back to front all bloody day. And I went out today and conversed with people. Like, actual adults. How embarrassing. So like I say, I’m definitely no authority on fashion.
But…I have decided that this season is going to mark the end of my pregnancy/post pregnancy/new mum-who-can’t-be-arsed-to wear-nice-clothes-because-I-end-up-with baby-food/sick/dribble-all-over-them wardrobe. This season I’m going to treat myself to a good old-fashioned high street shopping spree at the Bullring. That’s right, I’m actually going to leave the house, visit actual shops and use their fitting rooms so that I don’t end up with a load of clothes that don’t fit right (but stay hanging in my wardrobe unworn as I never got round to taking them back.) Mr M can babysit. Afterall, it is my birthday.
So this month I’ve ditched my home mags for the fashion mags and have scoured the internet far and wide for my favourite picks of the season (did I mention it’s my birthday soon?). Autumn has always been my favourite time of year for fashion and this year is no different. With trends ranging from fur and check to 70s chic, there are some great staple pieces on the high street.
So here is my (*ahem birthday*) list of my favourites:
Oxblood leather flats – Asos, £35
Lambswool checked scarf – M&S £25
Faux fur gilet – Topshop £65
Orange pussybow blouse – Dorothy Perkins £24
V bar shoulder bag – Asos £25
Black leather trousers – Zara £199
Suede faux fur biker boots – M&S £85
Black turtle neck – Primark £6
Navy check blanket wrap – Dorothy Perkins £26
What are your top fashion picks for autumn/winter?
