Today I collected together my toddler, husband, camera and several heavy duty bags bursting with earthy greys, blacks, greens and a little splash of burgundy, all ready for a day of shooting my first Autumnal lookbook.
There are so many things I love about the abundance of autumn; the sharp morning air, the burnt oranges that trace the edges of the fallen leaves, the perfume of the recently fallen rain and of course my favourite part, the fashion.
After embracing what little we have of the bare-leg season for as long as humanly possible, this is the time of year I find myself foraging in my cupboard for cosy knitwear, things to layer, coats, and I’ll be reaching for my jeans pretty much every single day. I’m a big fun of the humble jean. I tend to live in them day in, day out, all Autumn and Winter long. In fact, who am I kidding? Pretty much 90% of the year I’ll be in jeans unless it’s like 40 degrees outside and even then I’m considering just cutting a few holes for ventilation.
Luckily for me, George at Asda have released a gorgeous new range of jeans, absolutely perfect for this time of year! They’re made with beautifully authentic denim and I’m pretty sure there’s are a size and shape to fit everyone, meaning no more dreaded the shop for jeans- yay!
I tend to stick to skinny jeans and jeggings in darker colours for autumn and these black jeggings are my favourite of the bunch, they are so flattering, just super comfy, making them perfect for those active parenting days! Whoever thought it would be a great idea to mesh jeans and leggings, I wish I could nominate them for ‘person of the year’ if such a thing exists.
My new jeans are a lovely flattering cut, and perfect for pairing with the other autumnal staple of mine, the classic chelsea boot and the berry toned lip.
Before I leave you, I’ll let you in on a little behind the scenes secret- what you may not have gathered from these photographs is the reality of attempting to take blog photos and film a look-book at the same time with a two year old in tow… behind the scenes was pretty crazy! I was changing outfits in the bushes and Grayson was running around causing chaos, but it was all good Autumnal fun!
I’ve popped up a little look-book video over on my Youtube Channel (link to video) if you’d like to see me doing my best attempt to model my Autumnal outfits for you!
Ah, Autumn, you are certainly fun to dress for. What are your favourite Autumnal clothing pieces and accessories?
