Sorry for inundating you with outfit posts this week – I have so many to catch you up on, and this is a personal style blog after all so I hope you’re enjoying them! I wore this outfit to uni in the morning and then to eat burgers with some friends in the evening. We went to Handmade Burger Co (my first time eating there, I got the ‘Greek’ lamb burger and it was delish); I probably should have taken some photos but who has time for that when a burger is waiting to be eaten? I wore an outfit by Red or Dead, which I recently got from Bank – I love the interesting knit of the cropped jumper (which does have a matching skirt and is now on sale for £15) and simplicity of the tailored culottes (even more of a bargain on sale for £10). Over the top I threw on this amazing khaki maxi coat from PLT, which makes me feel a bit like I’m wearing a fancy dressing gown but I’m kind of into that. I finished off the outfit with some sportier footwear – I’ve had my eye on a pair of black New Balance 574s for a while (I’ve had and loved the navy 576s for a few years now), and this pair make a great addition to my extensive trainer collection.
Accessories-wise I’m wearing my super oversized H&M scarf again, this time actually as a scarf rather than a cape/shawl as I did here. I put this on more for warmth than anything, but I actually really like the subtle print clash and how it looks with this outfit. Finally, you can also see my new favourite uni bag, which is the ‘Brook‘ from Marc B’s new collection. It’s just the right size for a 13″ laptop with plenty of space for other bits too, and I personally really like the pewter finish on the hardware as opposed to Marc B’s usual gold. Thoughts?
By the way, if you’re struggling with Autumn fashion I’m running a competition on Twitter with F&F – just tweet me (@hannahlouisef) your dilemma using the hashtag #AutumnSOS to be in with a chance of winning a £100 voucher and some tips from me.
