Of all the A/W 15 trends, the lace-up is by far my favourite; from tassels to criss cross, it's an easy detail to incorporate in your current wardrobe and the best thing is you can be as sympathetic or as loud as you want! 

This breezy blouse is rapidly becoming my favourite go-to, its versatility allows me to mix and match pending on the occasion. As usual I've opted for minimalism | convenience with a pair of ankle boots and denim cut offs. The wooden accent on the shoes are a great textural contrast, as is the cut-out  which showcases a subtle hint of metal. 
It's the little things that count!

Teddy Blues.

It's cold! 
Hopefully it's here to stay because I miss my A/W habits | rituals. 
. Hot Coffee
. Pastry Snacks
. Layering Up
. Snuggling in fluffy throws

the list goes on. 

Moving on, I'm still very much in love with this piece from Whistles (last season purchase); despite the cooler sophisticated grey tones, the A-Line cut and cuffed sleeves adds a playful and relaxed feel. 
This is such an easy look to throw together, sometimes the best outfits are the ones that don't require much thought. The simplicity in colour and silhouette make it just as eye-catching as any statement piece. 

Wearing bangles over sleeves are a great way to add some dimension into the look, an added bonus is that it's fixed in place. Sometimes I can't handle the clanking of stacks moving around, it ends up being a hassle and turns into an irritation.

I opted for these lace-up heels over say booties or courts because it was a great element to throw in. It's a classic style with a twist.
(Style Tip | Pointed shoes, be it flats or heels are a great way to elongate the leg!)

Oxblood Lust.

Incorporating rich wine shades is the easiest way to freshen your wardrobe for Fall; it's an eye catching colour that carries a lot of depth. I've kept things minimal to emphasise a clean cut silhouette, a shirt dress and heels combo is an effortless portrayal of confidence and sophistication. I love what Leatrice Eiseman has to say on this season's palette... 

"Juxtaposition of colour from opposite sides of the spectrum emphasises poise and confidence...The fall 2015 palette is rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colours that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men's and women's fashion; it is the first time we are seeing a truly unisex colour palette."

Shirt dresses have great versatility and can represent many different concepts and moods. From a selection of flannels, chiffon and formal creations, it's a great foundation to build looks upon. 

Deep reds are proving popular in the Beauty Industry as well this season. If you're wanting to try the colour on your lips, opt for liquid formulas! They often have a matte finish and are really low maintenance post-application. Due to the nature of the product, you don't have to worry about smudging or bleeding. In this post I'm wearing Limecrime Velvetines in Wicked
