I thought I would try something different for a post and go in a little bit of a fashion direction for a change! I don't claim to be very on trend (usually I pick up a trend way behind everyone else, not by choice but usually I have to psyche myself up!). Regardless of this I love fashion and clothes and have an outrageous collection of VOGUE magazines that I regularly pour over.

Autumn/Winter is probably my favourite season for clothing. Don't get me wrong, I love summer and just being able to throw on a dress and leave the house. But when the Spring/Summer collections arrive in shops I can't help but always feel a little bit apprehensive and often dissapointed. Why? Because not everyone can pull of white, cream or neon and it this year I couldn't find much else. 

It's only when the evening light starts to fade and jewel shades of emerald and crimson start to creep into the shops do I get excited again. Then it gets really cold and I regret wishing it was winter. But hey, you can't have it all!

I've picked out a few items that I've spyed online and and even though it's early days for the collections there's some great pieces out there. My favourite are the boots from New Look. I'm seeing these cut out boots with multiple straps EVERYWHERE now and I'm liking what I see. The top boot is perhaps more everyday practical because the heel is lower but the bottom pair would look great with skinnies or to toughen up a girly dress. Hopefully I will be getting my hands on a pair of these very soon!
