And Action

Back to Business September aw 2014 fashion blog the coup navy school grey winter

And just like that summer ended…! Well if you live in London then you’ll know that summer ended about a month ago. Me and El have been saying that this is the earliest we’ve ever had to unpack our winter wardrobes. Oh well, I guess we can’t have it all! I’m back at work from Monday so I’m planning to invest in some key pieces that’ll see me into the autumn what with September knocking on our doors and all. It’s going to be a cold one this year and we’re both preparing our wardrobes for it as of now. This autumn/winter I’m all about clean cuts, dark tones and, strong silhouette, like this outfit I’ve thrown together for you above.I’ve always considered navy and grey to be a bit of a winning combination. Polo necks are a staple for me every winter and last year I lived in them. You might remember this outfit here. With that said Autumn I think I’m ready for you!

Outfit – Modern Classic

IMG_0595I’m putting a spin on the old LBD classic and today turning to navy instead. Likewise, a pair of minimalistic heels: perfect for brightening the block colour.

Things that make me go ‘Ohh’!

I have been looking for a ‘WOW’ coat for quite some time now. This Autumn I don’t want to blend in with the sea of black and navy, so going through tons of stores, boutiques and online in search of a piece that either had a vibrant colour or a strong graphic print, has been a long process. Today I am very happy to finally announce that here is it- the ‘OH MY ‘ coat of the season. The winner is Christopher Kane Leopard-print coat, £1.380 (available from Matches Fashion). This coat ticks all of the boxes. With an uber modern take on animal print, it truly represents designer’s bold aesthetic vision. The ‘no button’ design works very well when you just want something to trow over a sweater. Now, the only thing I need to worry about is how to start saving…
