Changing colours


As the leaves change colour, so must my wardrobe! I'm determined to get out of the black/white/red rut I always seem to fall into in the winter. Though I still love that colour combo, I'm trying to buy and wear more browns, yellows and greens- very autumnal.

Dress: Primark, Cardigan:H&M

Buying brown shoes and a brown bag were a good way to get into the swing of things and start co-ordinating with items already in my wardrobe. The brogues were a steal at £8 and I used some vouchers from surveys to buy the bag!

Bag:New Look, Tights: H&M, Brogues: Primark


These photos were taken a while ago when it was still warm enough to get away with a cardigan and no coat. I'm quite pleased with this outfit even if I do look a bit grumpy-I was on my way to work!

I'm at Moor Street Station which is absolutely lovely. They refurbished it so it is like it was in the 1930's (according to wikipedia) and there is an old train parked up there which you can see in the background. I wish they would do something with Snow Hill which is horrible, but they are in the process of rebuilding New Street which will be lovely when its finished.

I love your new shoes! Brown really works with everything, and I like your top. Jewel tones are very autumnal to me, if only because they inject colour and the right feeling, like it's still getting colder, but not drearier.:) xx

I agree, it is hard to not revert to brown/reds as it gets colder-- I think I'll try to get out of my habit too!

I love your bag and shoes-- really adorable!

I like the color proposals this fall. Mustard, red, green, blue. I love black and white but I like a touch of color to the winter.
