Monochrome Autumn Fashion

Autumn can be such a tricky time in terms of fashion, anyone else struggle with being freezing in the morning and sweltering in the afternoon? I find the only way is lots of thin layers and lots of them. Recently I did what a lot of bloggers consider a regular pass time, the promise of golden hour and amber leaves made me get all dressed up for a walk in the park. After summer has officially wound down I can't wait to reach for my darker colours and leather and wools, as much as I love summer BBQ's and lying on the beach I would much prefer getting super cosy and tucking into a Sunday roast *which is exactly what I did after taking these photos* 
The inspiration behind this outfit is my new favourite jumper from Oasis, this black white and grey tabard fit turtleneck jumper is so flattering and the perfect "smart casual" piece for Autumn. Normally I don't like this longer style of jumper because they have a tendency to make short legs look shorter. However Oasis have thought of everything and this jumper actually has slits up each side to roughly the top of my hip or your natural waistline that leaves more of your jeans or skirt exposed, therefore elongating your legs. Win. 
The second part of this outfit is one of my initially riskier purchases that I've gone on to class as a staple and that's my leather mini skirt from next. I chose this as part of my uniform when I worked at next, it wasn't overly my style and much shorter than I'd normally go for but the fit was really flattering and it looked like it was made to a really high quality. I've never regretted it, this piece looks great with a chunky jumper, with a formal blouse or just a t-shirt. So versatile and even though it's two years old it still has a great fit and adds an edgier touch to my normally quite classic outfits. 
To top this outfit off I added my beloved Topshop leather jacket, my black suede Chelsea boots and my Mulberry Clifton bag.  This outfit feels that little bit more dressed up than usual but still very comfy and wearable for a relaxed Sunday. Looking at these photos makes me miss my long hair, I've recently had it cut much much shorter and can't wait to show you all very soon. 

I'm working on this year Christmas gift guides which I'm going to aim to send live at the beginning of December, just in time to help you all out with Christmas shopping! If there are any specific styles of gift guide you'd like to see please let me know!
