Top: Aliexpress, Cardigan: H&M, Coat: Topshop, Necklaces: Aliexpress
Summer is beginning to draw to a close and me and Charlotte have been eagerly awaiting this change of season. What's not to love about Autumn/Winter? Halloween, bonfire night, Christmas films, cranberry smokey eyes and dark lips... the list goes on!
So inspired by the dropping temperature I decided to experiment with layering outerwear pieces in neutral shades to switch up my usual leather jacket option. This textured cocoon biker coat was from Topshop a while back and adds sophistication to any look and to be honest this outfit needed just a touch to pull back from being full on Taylor Momsen...
My top is a UNIF dupe from Aliexpress.com, really worth a trawl through for bargains as my necklaces are both from the same site and were unbelievably inexpensive. I am wearing a Primark black bodycon skirt underneath the vest by the way, my mother asked the same question.
Here's to the start of all things Autumn!

We have all experienced that feeling where you invest in a Topshop piece, only to go out and find that every other girl you pass on the street is wearing that exact same thing. For this reason me and Charlotte have recently found ourselves disillusioned with high street stores and decided to explore the range of small businesses in our area.
We occasionally wandered into Traders Outlet, a local store with different sections selling various jewellery, vintage furniture, handmade bath bombs ect but up until now we hadn't realised that there were also some fashion stalls such as Lady e bling, with cool pieces, much cheaper than you would find on the high street.
Charlotte is wearing a black oversized quilted shift dress with a kind of snake texture to it whilst I am wearing this white pleather cami dress. Both dresses comply with our usual styling comfort zones of black, white and leather so all in all a pretty good find!
We definitely recommend checking out the Lady e bling stall inside Traders Outlet to anyone in the Manchester area!

Top: Forever 21, Jacket: River Island, Sunglasses: Forever 21, Jeans: Topshop, Boots: Topshop, Necklaces: Zara and vintage, Bag: Vintage
What is it about trying to take a few blog photographs that is so difficult? Well for one there is lighting and the realization that your outfit is either too basic or horrifically unflattering. Then amongst a range of other technical issues there is the large problem that is the general public.
I could try and disguise our mishaps in order to appear professional, however that's not the kind of girls we are so I will admit that en-route to our location, we recieved a multitude of heckles from passing vans. I mean really, yes we have a camera, we are in fact taking photographs, that is generally the use for which people purchase a camera?
Anyway... rant over with, I decided to go with a summery outfit despite still including the staple black and grey. I'm really into layering necklaces at the moment and so I stacked this Zara one over a vintage, handmade shark tooth necklace which my great grandad brought back from Africa.
The sunglasses make me look like a fly or possibly an 80's police officer but I felt that they went well with the outfit. Let us know what your frustrations are when creating blog content!
