Beam me up Scottie, to a world of faux fur coats and full-time fun! Cos’ faux invites us out to play in the autumn and reminds us that come on, fashion really is fun (and fantasy, ok, ok, Karl, you may not have managed to coin it – ‘fantasy fur’, remember?? – but we get it…!)
Been on a bit of a coat buying bonanza, now that I’ve shed the summer vibes and am feeling the chill on my cheeks as I step out in the morning. This gorgeous number has me thinking all classy 80s shoulders and Crystal in Dynasty although I’ve somehow given it a bit of a beatnik twist with slim black rollneck, baker boy hat and 60s style oversized sunnies and of course, the basket tote. Basket totes for autumn looks, come on, let’s do this. Take summer all the way with you into winter why not? No rules on this one I say, and it feels so good!
Wish I could say the flowers were destined for my kitchen table but actually they’re Poppy’s, and in typical blogger style I co-opted them for my own use. But really they were meant to be sat in that basket, oui, oui. The jeans I must draw your attention too, because they are another super high quality piece from lovely brand King & Tuckfield (who you will find in boutiques like Hub and Diverse). Just the real deal, super stiff 50s style denim which make a cool shape all on their own. The boots by Boden, such a find, very impressed, and easy to wear!
