Outfit – My version of Evening Autumn Glam

So, Saturday was the big Halloween night out in the UK… but unfortunately I didn’t get to wear fancy dress. We were invited to two (two! never felt so popular haha) themed house parties….but missed out on both due to a family birthday dinner.

Probably a good thing that I couldn’t go – my Black Swan costume is waaay out of date. Every girl was either going with the Mexican Day of the Dead theme or as Harley Quinn.

So although I missed out on the party action (not bitter at all :-p) I did, however, get to dress up.

For me, Autumn = rich, dark red tones and jewel colours. I brought out my old velvet dress – a gorgeous royal blue- and dressed it down/cosy-ed it up with a turtle neck jumper and tights. Out came the berry nail varnish and purple lipstick.

It was really mild last night and with all my layers I didn’t really need a coat, but I wore this lovely camel-coloured number just because. I love this coat. It’s a belted mac style. The drape of the fabric feels so elegant. However, elegant is not something I get to channel often. Nights out are usually ‘jeans down the pub’. I feel like this coat needs to be worn with some sort of heel. So…. this was the first time I’d actually worn it out! (I’d worn it lots in the house, obvs…..)

I fancy adding another dark lip colour to my collection – I think I’ll go for something matt next time. I love some of the vampy make-up looks around in Autumn/Winter!

Outfit: Autumn Colours

I love the rich tones associated with the colder months of the year and I always look forward to wearing them. I recently had some lowlights put in my hair for winter so I thought it was finally time to break out the darker colours in my wardrobe. I seem to have accumulated lots of burgundy items over the past couple of years, so when I saw this green shirt I thought I’d try something different. I was really drawn to the beautiful colour. I don’t own anything else that is remotely green so it’s definitely a departure from the norm for me!

I bought this flippy floral skirt at the same time. This has been one of my go-to outfits for work recently – it’s a lot smarter than I need to look, but it gives me a confidence boost when I need it!

I have just retrieved my cosy hats and scarves from their summer storage – roll on winter!
