The Autumn Dress Wishlist

AUTUMN DRESS WISHLIST // LAUREN ROSE STYLE// FASHION BLOGGER LONDON

I have trailed the web for the best dresses for Autumn so you don’t have to. As much as I love a good roll neck and cosy knit at this time of year, I also love wearing dresses even more and there are so many beautiful dress's now in for Autumn/Winter. Whether you are looking for a day dress or an evening number, my little wish list below has you covered. I have included a mixture of brands, from Warehouse who have some amazing occasion dresses right now, Zara who have velvet dress's nailed for the season and New Look and Mango who are providing some gorgeous autumnal floral dresses. Let me know which ones are your favourite and if any will be swiftly added into your online shopping basket! 

BOOHOO DRESS - AUTUMN DRESS WISHLIST // LAUREN ROSE STYLE// FASHION BLOGGER LONDON

1. Dress: Boohoo (Shop Here)

The major theme for dresses this autumn is florals, autumnal florals at that. Summer colours are gone to make way for a darker colour palette including black, mustard yellow and navy and more romantic dress styles have taken over featuring lots of beautiful lace, lightweight chiffon and embroidered mesh.

NEW LOOK DRESS - AUTUMN DRESS WISHLIST // LAUREN ROSE STYLE// FASHION BLOGGER LONDON

2. Dress: New Look (Shop Here)

You may know already, but red is definitely the colour of the moment, so adding a pop of red into your Autumn wardrobe is key this season. This muted floral print dress has a feminine victorian style to it and it is such a beautiful dress. I actually saw this dress on another blogger, the gorgeous Karina from The Style Idealist (see her wearing it here) and knew I had to include in this post.


3. Dress: Warehouse (Shop Here)

When I saw this dress, I instantly fell in love. I am a sucker for a rose print and this embroidered mesh style ticks all the boxes. It is such a flattering shape and will be a great versatile piece to transition from a day look to an 'after work drinks' evening look. I will definitely be ordering this dress as soon as I have finished writing this post as it just has to be mine.

4. Dress: Mango (Shop Here)

The majority of the dresses that caught my eye for this post were either midi or maxi styles, however I wanted to include this short floral style as it is the perfect dress to pair with some knee high black boots to pull together the most chicest of autumn looks.

VELVET DRESS ZARA - AUTUMN DRESS WISHLIST // LAUREN ROSE STYLE// FASHION BLOGGER LONDON

5. Dress: Both Zara
(Shop Pink Here, Shop Navy Here)

It's that time of year again, where velvet makes a comeback for winter and this year it has matured into more timeless and classic style's. This gorgeous velvet draped wrap dress comes in two colours, both featuring a lace detail on the arm. They are oh so perfect in every way. Zara, you've nailed it again.

CHECK PINAFORE TOPSHOP - AUTUMN DRESS WISHLIST // LAUREN ROSE STYLE// FASHION BLOGGER LONDON

 6. Dress: Topshop (Shop Here

Ah the classic pinafore dress, I am very happy to see they are making a stylish come back. With checked blazers on every other blogger over on instagram right now (no shame - I am also a culprit), why not opt for a checked dress instead? You are nailing the check print trend, but in a more individual way. I love the cool girl vibe of this dress and it would look perfect over a knitted roll neck.

Let me know what dress is your favourite?

Until Next Time, Lauren Rose xx

SELF LOVE

LAUREN ROSE STYLE // KYNANE MEWS LONDON AUTUMN - SELF LOVE PERSONAL POST // FASHION AND PERSONAL STYLE BLOGGER
Recently another blogger wrote an Instagram caption asking her followers to write something underneath that they love about themselves and I really struggled to think of something. It got me thinking about how hard we can be on ourselves, we can be overly self-critical and I am sure we are our own worst enemies. I think this partly comes down to is the world in which we live in today. The social landscape has changed dramatically and we now find ourselves we inundated with comparison every single day through the world of social media. It is a tool that we didn’t have before, which has turned into such a huge force in all our lives. It can be amazing, the internet and social media has so many positive attributes,  it allows us to connect with millions of people all around the world. But there are negatives, one being that we can now compare our lives and appearances to strangers online all around the world, simply at the touch of a button.

To summarise, we all have way too much comparison these days through the influence of social media that I think it’s important to remember that these lives are filtered.  These can give us an unrealistic representation of people’s lives and their appearance. Don’t be so hard on yourself, stop girl crushing on everyone else and think about yourself a little more. Don’t get lost in other peoples online lives, that you think you, your appearance and your life is not good enough or not like somebody else’s.

We need to focus on ourselves a little more, practice self love rather than self loath. Self love is defined as the regard for one’s own well-being and happiness, Self love is important to living well. So how can we practise a little more self love might you ask? I have listed my top tips below, most of which I need to start following ASAP. (Just to add, buying yourself clothes and material things is not practicing self love as these will make you happy only temporary).

1.     SELF CARE ~ Self Care is a huge aspect of Self Love. Look after yourself, make yourself a priority. This includes exercising regularly, eating healthily, getting a good night’s sleep. This extends to pampering yourself, doing your nails, giving yourself face-mask, making sure to remove your makeup every night.

2. ME TIME ~   Prioritise more ‘ME’ time. Following on from the above, do things just for you and nobody else. Do things that you enjoy. Go to a yoga class, have a pamper night, enjoy a bubble bath, read a book. It is important to make time for these things. Not just once in a while, but try and plan to do this at least once or twice a week. Allow yourself to use this time to really shut off from everything else and truly relax.

3. DON'T BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF ~  Life can be busy, but don’t put so much pressure on yourself all the time, accept that sometimes there isn’t enough time to do everything you need to. Also learn to let things go easier, holding onto things in the past can weigh you down, forgive and forget to then allow you to move forward.

4. MINDFULNESS ~ Try to have a more open mind, encourage positive thoughts and banish any judging, self critical attitudes. You are in charge of your own thoughts, so don’t let yourself have negative thoughts about yourself. This is something that we can learn over time, we have to try to control the thoughts we want to have.

5. STOP THE COMPARISON AND APPRECIATE YOURSELF Start appreciating yourself for who you are, write a list of things that you are good at and love about yourself. Focus on the positives and separate that away from your negative emotions about yourself. There is a great quote about comparison which is ‘don’t compare your Chapter 1 to someone else’s Chapter 20’, we all do things differently, things happen at different time's for people and that is ok. Life takes us all in different places for a reason. Another great way to stop the comparison is to have a digital detox and start incorporating this into your week as a way to allow yourself to shut off from the social world and focus on yourself.

Self love is a process, it isn’t going to happen overnight but hopefully these steps can help us get there. I also want to highlight that I am no expert, and this is what I believe will help me on my journey towards self love. I would love if you could share your experience and tips to practice self love? How do you feel about this topic? Feel free to link yours or any other bloggers post’s on self love as I would love to read.

These photo’s were taken at the most gorgeous location in South Kensington and I am so into the autumnal vibes, so hope you enjoyed the snaps as well as this post in general. I have linked the details to my outfit above as usual. Special mention to this Mango jumper as it is actually the dream, it is so soft and I definitely amn't afraid to admit that haven’t taken it off for the past 3 days!


Until next time, Lauren Rose xx
