It’s early autumn and here are a few things that are in my wish list.

Totally fabulous looks, and of course I will be trying to copy this from the high street. It’s early days but it seems to me that Zara will have this all sewn up!
I have been a ‘skinny jean girl’ for at least the last decade, before that it was bootcut jeans. I can hardly remember before that! I do remember a few trips to Kensington Market to buy second hand levi’s which were THE thing to wear in the early 90’s. Flared shapes have been having a comeback for a couple of seasons but for some reason I haven’t fancied them. It’s the ankle swingers that have caught my eye. They are wide around the ankle but not exactly flared and cropped. Here are what I’m talking about.
I love a new fashion-ism, and the micro-trend we are seeing at the moment is the ‘maxi-top’.
Here are a few to look at….
This one from Zara has a classic shirt front. £29.99.
This open-work front top from Free People says holiday to me. It also is available in black and amber. £128.
This one is from River Island £26.
I’m struggling to see myself adopting this trend, although I can see it being a great beach cover up option. I often have to eat my words…..watch this space.
It’s definitely a new season, the weather has warmed up, the sun is out. Ditch the chunky knit its time for a spring update. One of the ways is to wear more denim. It was a massive look on the catwalks for spring/summer 15.

I could go on and on but here are the ‘new in’ items I have spotted lately that are worth taking at look at on our high street.
When you document what you are wearing everyday you notice how little of your wardrobe you actually wear. I have spotted that I wear jeans a lot. I often go shopping for the trends that I have seen and try them on, they fit ok and hit the brief I then stick them in the wardrobe. I think I will wear them but the truth is I am just a casual style girl who would like to look smarter but its not my natural state.
Well today I am wearing an A-Line midi skirt, its been in my wardrobe since autumn.
It was from Marks and Spencer and is thick wool and has a lining which makes it perfect for cold days like today.
I am wearing it with this Uniqlo jumper, it dresses it back down to casual, the Swarovski necklace just adds a tiny sparkle.
These Paul Smith shoe boots were bought back in 2011! I am wearing Topshop lace trimmed socks.
I am off out to meet with a friend who has just bought a bar/restaurant, I hope my legs won’t be too cold!
