What to buy now


Big jumpers should be on your shopping list people. Whilst the weather is still warm, wear them as a dress or with a mini skirt and bare legs. Later wear them over midi skirts or trousers. Here’s the inspiration….

And here is the high street…

Marks and Spencer Speziale Kimono jumper is first up, £129. It has a course knit and would look great with an A-line skirt and a chunky scarf. The next one is from Mango and is slouchier than the image shows, £34.99. And finally, Cos, this is a great knitted dress but could easily be layers as a jumper £79.

Buy them big and hope for a nip in the air like these early adopters!

Go Mango


This season Mango have really created a covetable collection. With items that look chic and edgy you would be forgiven for thinking that the price range was much higher.  Left to right, £39.99, £34.99, £119.99.

Priced at  £34.99, £59.99, £99.99 it makes it easy to fill your wardrobe with day dresses for work or autumnal evenings out.

Go shop here!




Ok girls it’s time to stop comfort eating our way through this awful summer, because the waist is going to be main focus for Autumn. As I dip my biscuit into my hot coffee I spot the most amazing belts that can update my simple shift dresses.

Both of these belts are from Mango priced at £42.99. Not only over my shift dresses and tube dresses, I could also wear these over my navy trench coat.

How cute is this bow belt, only £3.99(!) from New Look.

And this one is only £6.99 also from New Look. You see style doesn’t have to be expensive!

Get your skates on


Check out the fabulous skater skirts and dresses out there. So flattering, they cinch in a waist, skim over your hips, and make your legs look thinner. What’s not to love? It seems the shape is going to be around into next season too, so don’t be afraid to buy!

Reiss Nikita dress £118 sale price

Mango dress £49.99

You could layer up those dresses when the temperature drops.

Pastel skater skirt £28 Miss Selfridge

This pastel blue would look great with a yellow blouse, honest!

Striped dress Ted Baker £139

This is my favourite, very cute. It wouldn’t work for Autumn but wear it to death right now and bring it out again next Spring.

Scratch that, this one is my favourite…..

Zara dress £69.99

Oh I don’t know, they are all great!
