Autumn is here, which means clocks go back and the nights get darker quicker. But more importantly, autumn fashion is in full effect. Its all about the Autumn Nude.
The dark beige, rust brown and burnt orange tones that seem to be ruling the high street. As I walked througOxfordrd street last week. I popped into Mango, Zara and H&M and that was the main colour palette that was reigning the shop window. As well as the craze for leopard print too!
To be honest, it’s only the last year that I have warmed t this tone. A few years ago, I thought this shade of brown wouldn’t look nice on me it will drow me out and I would like bland. Crazy right? But thank god for growth, self-love and confidence. I love it and has become a favourite shade to wear in summer and in winter.
This whole is from Zara of course as they are nailing the various key trends for winter. The trousers are cord material in a rust brown shade which fit amazing. a low/mid rise flared trousers, channelling 70’s era. I don’t have any flares in my wardrobe, so this was a nostalgic purchase as I would always be in flares in school back when we had ‘own clothes day’.
I wore this with a matching long sleeve crochet weaved top. which felt amazing on. It also comes in white, which I plan to get as it is a perfect brown. I wore this with my Stuart Weitzman wrap leg heeled sandals which is a classic heel that works with the most outfit I tend to wear.
So yes, I will e being brown, dark brown staples for my wardrobe as I loveeeeee this shade and can’t believe it took me this long to like it. This is why fashion is so important even though it is only clothes. Trends and colours come back and something that you may not of like in the past becomes a personal favourite and element of your style evolution which I just a reminder about like. You have an opportunity to change what you don’t like or change your mindset!

My new favourite go-to for the winter season, wide length pants. For a night out or a dinner party, I have been drawn towards a fancy trouser that is sung and cozy to tackle the wind of the winter weather.
I recently have been expanding where I shop, and I popped into H&M and checked out their trend collection. FYI – It is one of the best high street offerings in the market. It really has runway trends as high street pieces, which isn’t as known to all general customers, unless you are fashion, fashion girl (in my opinion)! I fell in love with these wide length pants as it is a solid material which holds the shape of the trousers. The warm dirty orange is the perfect autumn colourway for this season.
I paired it up with a satin top with a cut of shoulder and frill end sleeve. I love the mix and match of the two tones paired together.
Lately, I have been so busy settling into a new job role that I have been very excited to be doing and immersing myself into that. So apologies for the delayed post! As you know I work in marketing and that is a separate journey from blogging that I enjoy. I definitely will be sharing more, but into the new year.
For me having more than one stream of income is SO important, as we get older we should be thinking about how you want to live your life. So I focusing on setting up my streams of income using my skills and gifts to be purposeful. So as there are high and lows in the social media world, be mindful to build a life that is lucrative off of it.

The afternoons are getting shorter and the evenings are getting longer, which means winter is here. I am easing my way into my winter wardrobe by mixing textures, colours. I am leaving towards comfortable looks which are still feminine, flirty and casual. As I get older my tolerance for the cold gets less and less. I can feel it in my bones more (basically I’m getting old lol).
Introducing you to my winter wardrobe
I brought back my pink fluffy jumper I got from H&M last winter, which I bought 2 sizes bigger, so it has that sung feel and drops on me like a hanger. I colour block this jumper with a satin finish rouge red A-line skirt, also from H&M. I love the clash of red and pink, it is a strong combination and really stands out, but also fits with the winter feel because of the clash of textures.
Adding some sass to this look I wore gold River Island heels that I have had for years that look identical to Aquazzara but are not lol. What I love about this look is, you can easily switch the heels with trainers and wear a pair of Stan Smiths and still look just as good.
So as I start to pull out my winter favourites, let me know what you would like to see and what your winter comfort go too’s?
