I will be honest and admit to struggling to find my style mojo right now! Some seasons it all just falls into place - like it did last year - but this year I can't quite seem to decide what I am loving! But I did a quick swoop on John Lewis last week and I do love the knitwear colours in their new John Lewis & Partners range. So here I am sharing an easy to wear autumn outfit - great for down days, errand days, pop on a black biker jacket or a faux fur gilet or jacket and you are good to go!
After having my hair cut a shorter and going a bit of a darker shade, I thought I would go bright with the knitwear - bright and big! This is their Relaxed V Neck Sweater in Cobalt Blue and price at a very reasonable £35. They have a good selection of styles and price points in their knitwear range - this is a mixed fibre but they also have similar styles in cashmere.
I have styled it with my favourite coated jeggings from Next, my Vionic trainers and this lovely fur collar scarf from The Wendy House - it is their current best seller and comes in a huge range of colours - I am wearing the navy, and priced at only £20 it is a winter must have or a great gift!
I then accessorised with a tiny bit of animal print - this leather bracelet is previous season but Toria Lee Accessories has a very similar one Isla Animal Cuff. And these pretty crystal drop earnings are from Toria Lee Accessories - Kate Swarovski's.
As you can see we were struggling with shadows and the position of the sun on this photo shoot!! And I thought in the interests of keeping it real, you might like to see the outtake ... great place to sit Katy!
Have you tried anything from the new John Lewis & Partners range yet? Let me know!
