Great, so summer's over and the cold mornings are back. Sometimes I think it'd be easier to emigrate somewhere warmer than have to change my wardrobe so often. But then again, I do enjoy shopping.

The shops are getting in their first wave of Autumn stock, and it's looking good. You don't have to completely depart from your summer clothes as yet though. You just have to adapt.

I'm going to keep on wearing a maxi dress, but styling it with biker boots and a cropped leather jacket. Warm tootsies and instant rock chick points.

Here's a few bits perfect for the changing season in those gorgeous Autumn colours.

Zara Tunic with Zip £49.99

Zara V Back Dress £49.99

Zara Flat Ankle Boot - £69.99

Cos Bonded Wool Blazer £125

H&M Dress £24.99

H&M Waistcoat £34.99

Forgotten Heroes

They're the ultimate accessory, interchangeable with a wide selection of outfits. Chic, hobo, ladylike, tough... whatever your style. Let's talk bags. Without having one on a daily basis, I reckon I'd scramble myself pretty quickly. Something has to carry my life around for me! Keys, purse, lipbalm, comb, perfume, notebook, camera -I need it all. And while I need the functionality factor.... I want to get from day to day with wow.

Amused By Ameko Wing Tassel Drawstring Tote - £125 (Avaiable from Asos)
Perfect for a more relaxed look, this leather hobo bag with skull and tassle detail is great if you have a little rocker in you!
'Razzle Dazzle' Gold Metal Clutch Bag - £120 (vintage, available from
This bag just screams vintage glamour and makes me want to don a ballgown, drink champagne and become transported back 50 years. As it's vintage, there's only one so if you want it you better be quick!

Polly Push Lock Tote - £895
Okay so I couldn't write about bags and not include one for us to dream about! Gorgeous, functional and fantastic quality. We love you Mulberry!
