Autumn
Leaves falling, temperatures cooling... it's time for Autumn layers!

One of my favourite warm pieces... the roll-neck under a pinafore dress and knee-high leather boots make Autumn season "easy-dressing".

Another layer?  Check out the Peacoat range on offer at Jack Wills.  I absolutely love the traditional, preppy British styles and patterns. Keeping with the "school-girl" chic look, I wore my Warmwell Peacoat in houndstooth.  Classically tailored with a traditional statement lapel, double breast and fur collar.

Making the most of a sunny Sunday morning I was lucky enough to have these photo's taken whilst enjoying a country walk around Knole Park. Home to over 350 wild deer and with over 1000 acres to roam, it reminded me how beautiful the Kent countryside really is!

Daniel Wellington
Timeless, classic ... a watch for any occasion!

Recent trends in watch design have seen a return to minimalism, with a choice of timepieces for both ladies and gentleman.  Thin, elegant, plain dials... Daniel Wellington specialises in offering interchangeable NATO colourful straps and genuine Italian leather straps.

The Classy Sheffield in rose gold, with exclusive Swarovski crystals is definitely one of my favourites!

Love a logo?!

I rarely find a t-shirt/jumper which I like the logo and the style.... until this black and white graphic H&M tee came along!  Spot On!  Teamed up with this Autumn's "sell-out" suede skirt, I mixed up the 70s street-style look. Just love suede.... great texture, super soft and comfy to wear!  

Never underestimating the small details.... I loaded on the accessories and worked a school-girl hairstyle.... keeping it fun!  Retro sunnies, Kiko "barbie" lippie, Orelia pineapple necklace, coral brogues and a Daniel Wellington watch!

Hippie
The 70's are back ...!

Fashion trends come back around and this season is no exception.  So ditch the skinny jeans and pull out the palazzo pants!

A day out with my sister to the quaint, historic town of Rye in East Sussex, I embraced the "hippie" style!  

Once the haunt of smugglers, Rye regularly attracts tourist and film crews.  Ancient buildings, cobbled streets and secret passages we enjoyed a stroll around the shops, and afternoon tea!

The palazzo trousers, suede tassled bag and print headband contributed to today's 70's inspired outfit.  A purchase from Corsica, the printed wide-legged trousers felt like I had my PJ's on!!  Super comfy, soft silk, flowy ... these are packed for my next Holly Day ...

Pure London 2015
Back at the beginning of the month I was lucky enough to attend to Pure London - the UK's Premier Womenswear Fashion Exhibition!!

Thank you to R a I N  for collaborating with me and inviting me to support them at this event!  

A showcase for new, up-and-coming labels, it was an inspiring day for me ... clothes, shoes, bags and accessories.  At the end of the day my sister and I decided we definitely would love to open a shop!

Check out below a selection of some of the brands I loved .....!!!

Love Polo
Made in Italy, the Love Polo collection is aimed at the modern woman. Dresses, and polo t-shirts combine a sporty, fresh style with a feminine twist.  Fresh white, quality material but with unique silk and lace details.  I was instantly drawn in by the cute Chiara Polo Dress .... beautiful lace cap sleeves!  Oh and it looks like a tennis dress!
