Morning guys and the sun is shining! ☀️ My washing is on the line, I am on iced coffee number two and ‘Changing Rooms’ is on in the background. I promised you all over on my Instagram that I would do a series of autumn styling blog posts this season so here is the first one. This post is all about the staple black blazer and your brown and black handbags. Pairing them with dresses or items you already own is so easy for autumn.
Some items in this blog post are pr products and will be shown with a *
This black blazer was an eBay find and is a never worn Karen Millen tailored number. It’s such a classic piece for the autumn/winter wardrobe and there are always so many out there on the high street to choose from. I paid less than £10 including postage for this bargain and it is perfect. I have also ordered an oversized black shacket which I will feature in another styling post or over on my Instagram and for me, the blazer and shacket are enough in my opinion for a colder season wardrobe. This bag is from a gorgeous brand called Fenella Smith London* and it is a great transitional piece from day to night. On the left, this black and white shirt dress is a very recent purchase from the Warehouse sale and the dress on the right is a navy blue print M&S dress. They are both midi length and also have long sleeves.
Still featuring the bag are these two outfits. On the left is another M&S dress which again is a midi length but with shorter sleeves and on the right is this beautiful Warehouse dress. All of these dresses (and many more in my wardrobe) look great with this black blazer and bag from Fenella Smith London and I can’t wait to start wearing these outfits in the coming weeks.
These two autumnal outfits feature the Fitzwilliam bag from Fairfax & Favor*. This has been such a staple piece for me even throughout summer and looks great with all outfits. Both of these dresses are from Crew Clothing* and look perfect styled up with the brown leather and suede bag.
You don’t need to buy a lot of new items for seasonal styling. I have invested in classic pieces for this year which I know will work with items I already own. I have told myself to not buy another floral dress this season and instead be on the look out for neutrals and blacks. This way I can wear some of the more transitional dresses I own all year round with the right jacket and accessories.
Have a great sunny Thursday 🤍
