The cooler weather and shorter days are creeping in which can mean only one thing...autumn is upon us. I am sooooo excited as I frickin' love autumn. It is by far my most favouritest season. That being said, I have truly enjoyed having a summer this year. The warmth has made me feel a little bit better about not going on holiday but I am ready for the best weather ever which is bright, blinding sunshine with a chill in the air that calls for a scarf (it might not be quite that cold yet but it'll get there - I hope).
I am excited about being able to wear autumn clothes as I am an awful summer dresser. One of the most exciting trends for me this autumn is the introduction of the colour pink as a seasonal staple. Not that I am a hugely girly-girl or anything but it makes a nice change from all the oxbloods and mustards of the past couple of years.
This Simone Rocha coat is beautiful. If I were to shed out for a seasonal piece, it would probably be this. That spare £800 I had lying around has gone missing though so I may have to find a cheaper alternative. Zara have a pretty pale number with a similar cut to this which I may have to try on for size.
I really love Miu Miu's AW13 collection and this bowling bag is so cute for the bubblegum look. I'm not sure on the price of this but, as with the coat, I feel it may be a little out of my league.
Pink skirts are more wearable than the coat as they are not quite so in your face. I would balance these with a basic tee in white, black or grey and maybe a classic black court shoe. Loving the cut-out detailing around at the mo, makes these ladylike but in a fun, young way.
As with most trends the easiest way to get on board is with a little nod on the nail. I went for pink confetti over Strawberry Ice Cream, both by Barry M.
How are you guys feeling about pink this season?
