The trees are on the turn here in Yorkshire, the summer clothes are firmly away and the word Autumn has already seen way too much usage. As usual I’m loving a lot of things, but these recent purchases are particularly making me smile a la present.
Zara have hit it on the head with these. The style is so versatile, they are a stretch, looser fit yet still have a degree of structure, visit Zara’s website here.
Avoid any ‘oh I’ve got my leg’s out’ concerns by opting for darker or coloured tights.
2. Second up is a personalised necklace (the tusk) purchased recently from Chambers and Beau. They first popped up in my Facebook feed a while ago, then again in my Instagram. When their new website was launched and they had 20% off – it would’ve been rude not to (again proving the power of social media!).
I went for the tusk on a silk cord with a star charm and had it personalised. Ordering to delivery took just 4 days – impressive! It is adjustable so I can create the perfect layering with my other necklaces and have not taken it off. Needless to say, I already have my eye on two more pieces. The personalisation of their pieces and really reasonable price-point makes them perfect for present buying!
3. Finally, two of my most favourite nail colours I will be alternating between all winter long. I believe they are THE perfect Autumn/Winter darker colours.
Both by Essie, the red is called ‘Bordeaux’ and the purple, ‘Carry On’. Reds can sometimes look too ‘evening’ and purples (unless near-black), either too violet, blue or vampy, but both of these are just light enough to be able to be distinguished for their colours – I absolutely adore them.
That said, if you’re wanting a near black – another purple I recommended here last winter – is Luxedo. Buy via Essie or on online with Boots then have them delivered to your local store.
Have a great week folks, hope to be bringing you something for the home next week… watch this space. OX
