Victoria Park

I love London. I love living in London. But sometimes it's nice to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and reside in Victoria Park for the afternoon. Hire a bike, roll in the Autumn leaves and relax.

Winter Whites

Faux Fur Coat - Topshop (similar)
Roll Neck Top - River Island
Skirt - New Look
Boots - Office (Similar)
Bag - Accessorize
I wore this outfit yesterday when I went out for brunch with my flatmate Maddie, who very kindly took these photo's for me. It was a bitter morning. This weekend has definitely brought the beginning of winter weather and it is absolutely freezing in London. I decided it was time to crack out the faux fur coats. I love a good fur coat. Not only are they the cosiest things ever in winter, but I feel like they make you look glam, no matter what else you are wearing. This white one from Topshop is the absolutely dream and it is so incredibly soft. It is actually my flatmate Joanna's, she has an entire rail of fur coats - how handy for me to borrow haha! 

I wore this River Island roll neck to give a white on white look which I personally love. I know I always wear roll neck tops. It is an obsession. I can't help it. I decided to wear this leopard print skirt to break up the soft whites and give the outfit a bit more of an edge. This is probably my most worn skirt right now. It is one of those staple pieces in my wardrobe that I find easy to throw on with any colour of top and it works. I pulled the outfit together with some thick wooly tights and my black boots. A simple, cute little outfit for a casual weekend look.

What do you think of this outfit? Do you like faux fur coats as much as me?

Autumn Hues

Jumper - Boohoo
Suede Skirt - Stradivarius
Sleeveless Coat - New Look
Boots - River Island
Last Sunday I headed to Victoria Park for a lovely brunch at the Pavilion followed by a relaxing Autumn walk with Vicky and Hannah. The perfect Sunday. I love Victoria Park. I literally go every weekend because it kind of feels like an escape from the city. I especially like it right now, as it is so autumnal, all the leaves have turned orange and are falling from the trees, making the park look beautiful.

My mum got me this real suede, button up skirt when she was on holiday in Spain recently, it is from Stradivarius and I love it. I have been wearing it a lot, it just goes with so many things and has turned into a bit of a wardrobe staple. I wore it with this striped, cropped jumper I got from Boohoo and my little brown boots from River Island. I realise now that this outfit is very brown, but I liked it - shout out to the A-team for managing to wear an entire brown outfit. It was a super foggy, crisp, chilly day and this outfit was perfect for the colder weather. I did have a big scarf that I threw on whilst having brunch though, as we sat outside.

Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday, I may be going for another walk around Victoria Park with my flatmates this afternoon. I am honestly obsessed.

Are you loving Autumn as much as me? What do you think of this outfit?

My Autumn Essentials

I thought I would do a little post on my Autumn Essentials since it is my favourite season after all (if you hadn't already guessed). I did a similar post here last year, so this is kind of an updated version...

Roll Neck Jumpers - I live in Roll Neck's right now. Sometimes I wish it was cold all year round just so I could wear them all the time. My collection seems to be slowly growing and I am not complaining. This cosy knitted one is from Primark and you can see me wearing it in a recent outfit post Roll Into Autumn (ha ha.. get it?).

Accessories - I feel like accessories are a really strong part of an autumnal outfit, and also key in keeping you a bit warmer. I love this deep purple fedora from Accessorize. I have had it for a few years and not only is it a perfect shade for Autumn, but it is super convenient to throw on and pull an outfit together. Alternatively this beautiful, brown, real suede tassle bag is also from Accessorize and is a staple in my Autumn wardrobe.

Starbucks PSL - Now I am not a coffee drinker, but I decided to give Pumpkin Spiced Latte's a go, just to see what the hype was all about. Luckily I was not disappointed. They are sweet, milky, flavoured with cinnamon and nutmeg, and really taste delicious.  Ideal for warming up on a brisk Autumn day. Even if you don't like coffee that much, definitely try one, you might be surprised at how much you like them.

Autumn Candles - Candles, candles, candles. My obsession. I have far too many candles for my own good but they are just the best things ever. My current candles of choice at this time of year are the Bath and Body Works candles 'Pumpkin Cupcake' and 'Caramel Pumpkin Swirl', and the other is a DW Home Candle 'Pumpkin Spiced'. They are all definitely verging on the sweet/sickly scent, but I love that.

Berry Nails - I can't get enough of this Barry M Matte Nail Paint in Crush. What more can I say apart from it is the perfect Autumn nail colour.

Bite Agave Lip Mask - The change of weather at this time of year always seems to have a detrimental effect on my skin, especially drying out my hands and lips. This lip product is a life savour. It is a moisturising lip mask, that hydrates and rejuvenates your lips back to health. I lather this on my lips every night before bed and really notice the difference in the mornings. It is pretty pricey, but this product is honestly worth it.

What are your Autumn Essentials? I would love to know!

p.s I finally have internet installed in my new flat WOOHOO I can regularly blog again - I am so excited.
