Zara has become my new adoration and obsession.

I’ve always been a big fan, but I’ve been especially loving their autumn/winter collection this year, just a tad more than usual, so I thought I’d share some of the pieces that have caught my eye recently…

FASHION: TOP 5: BACK TO SCHOOL MUST HAVES

Fashion

Hopefully this top 5 fashion ‘must haves’ will help you prep for another fresh start either that be a new city, a new year or a new school, getting back on the education wagon is incredibly important and what’s better than a new wardrobe to start with? Turn heads and make those first impressions right.

I’ve been absolutely loving Topshop’s collection recently and it seems to be getting more fabulous each week, the sixties and seventies fashion ‘inspo’ are my favs and nothing screams smart to me more than a pair of cigarette trousers with brogues or even a stripy funnel neck with a pair of tights and dungarees.

So here’s what my top 5 picks are for that first term:

// Topshop

Inverness Checked Wool Pinafore Dress //

// £185

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.55.32

‘As if’… Embed a ‘Clueless’ classic Cher look. Tartan will always be an autumnal look and with a square clean, yet sharp silhouette and a hidden zip at the back, you are well on your way.

//Topshop

Suede Western Jacket //

// £135

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.55.59

The 70’s has made a comeback I couldn’t help but squeeze a bit of suede into my top picks. A classic front style with zipped trims to the sleeves and patch pockets, this would team up perfectly with a cosy black turtle neck and black skinnies.

// Topshop

Daisy Print Cigarette Trousers //

// £39

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.56.12

Think practical yet chic, these daisy print cigarette trousers are a gem to create that smart look, cut with a flattering tapered leg and an ankle grazer in length, you can’t go wrong. Oh and they’ve got side pockets, what more could a girl want.

// Topshop

PETITE Bright Floral Tunic //

// £32

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.53.58

Okay, this is my favourite from the list. Who said floral is dead in Autumn? This retro print will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.

// Topshop

Striped Funnel Neck Top //

// £18

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 19.56.28

If you want to create a slimming look nothing is better than stripes paired up with black dungarees. This soft knit jersey style is ultra fitted to fabricate the most perfect silhouette.

WHY I LOVE AUTUMN

Popular Culture & Entertainment

I absolutely love Autumn and while the majority of the UK would disagree and like it hot, hot hot; I thought I’d make a post about why I adore this season so much and with it now being September I thought it would be perfectly relevant to talk about it to you all.

So here’s a few images from Pinterest that I’ve been pinning:

Autumn Food Blog1. The first thing that I love is the food in Autumn, from Sunday roasts after a long days graft or a long walk in the park there is nothing better than ‘warming your cockles up’. So here’s a recipe I came across on Pinterest. Waitrose’s Roasted Autumn Vegetables with Halloumi: Check out the recipe and ingredients by clicking the image.

Halloween Autumn blog2. Halloween… Duh? Who doesn’t love Halloween. American Horror Story Halloween Specials and sweets at the ready is all you need.

Crafts Autumn Leaves blog3. As it’s only a few months away to Christmas now, prepping your decor skills is key so what better season to start practicing those scissor skills? Make your house feel more homely with a few crafty leaves around. To see how click the image.

Chestnuts Autumn Blog4. Chestnuts are probably my favourite thing in Autumn, perfect to add into those Sunday Roasts with vegetables.

Hot Drinks Autumn Blog5. A nice hot drink is always the one before you start and most importantly ending your day, nothing says de-stressing more than putting your cosy socks on and warming up with a brew to your fav TV Show.

Long Walks Autumn blog6. Long walks are just so pretty in Autumn, scarf on, wellies on and your all set to have the perfect stroll.

Autumnal Colours blog7. Autumnal colours are my absolute favourites, team your seasonal wear this year with a chart.

Candles9. Candles are a must have if you want to complete that relaxing vibe.

Autumn Essentials Blog

10. Here’s a few must have essentials to complete the season.

Knowing that Autumn is finally here I can’t wait to get stuck into those cosy oversized sweatshirts, the feeling that Christmas is on it’s way and having those nights in at the weekend with candles surrounding you or those rainy days inside under the duvet with my favourite movies (Big Fish, Love Actually and The Boat That Rocked FYI).
