SHEARLING JACKET & HEELS

Choker - eBay, Necklace c/o Elkin, Crop Top - Primark, Jacket - c/o Oh My Love London, Skirt - c/o Fenchurch, Heels - c/o Dorothy Perkins

I'm totally going a bit gothy looking in preparation for Halloween.. with the spooky season coming around it just makes me want to slap on the black eyeliner and dark lippy. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I can pull that off for a day at work. POOK. For the next couple of weekends, each day is an excuse for a nod to Halloween.

Anyhoo, this outfit is glam for me. I'm wearing heels FGS. I don't even wear heels that much these days, I've never got anywhere schmancy to go, plus I can't walk in the bloody things. I did swap to boots when I headed out (I couldn't quite brave Starbucks in heels.. Bit much y'know). Even still, a pencil skirt makes me feel a bit dolled up. I wanted an outfit to go with a couple of new wardrobe additions. The jacket is my latest for staying cosy this winter - it's super snuggly. That little necklace is the other newbie. It's from Elkin - they do some really cute mixed metal jewellery. They're worth checking out, plus they've given me a 25% off discount code for you all if you're fancying a treat - just enter 'FASHIONINFLUX' at the checkout.. Happy shopping!

FUR GILET & FLARES

Hat - Boohoo, Fur Gilet - Boohoo, T-Shirt - c/o LNA Clothing, Flares - H&M, 

I think flares are kind of big right now, don't you? I've seen loads of people wearing them recently and I'm obsessed. They're just good with lazy tees like this one and make a nice change from skinnies. This pair I've had lurking in my wardrobe for a good couple of years.. I tend to fetch them out in the winter as they need leggings or tights under them (they're lace.. ain't no way I'm flashing that much leg!). Still thinking I need a denim pair.. Trying to justify it by telling myself I'd wear them a lot. 

Other than that I'm wearing a lot of favourites that you've probably seen before. I'm loving getting back to all these A/W favourites - the gilet and hat I both had last winter.. Sure I'll still wear them to death this season. I think this is my one of my most loved months.. My birthday is coming up, Halloween, it's officially autumnal but it's not freeze your boobs off cold. Lovely.

GREY OVERSIZED JUMPER

Jumper - H&M, Jeans - Topshop, Boots - Topshop

Say hello to one of my latest favourite. Yep, it's only a plain jumper from H&M but I love it all the same. It's slouchy (we all know that's my favourite thing/word), super soft and has the simplest details to make it lovely. I think it's the side slits and that dropped back.. It's just a good fit for feeling comfortable in both ways - the snuggly sort of comfy and the 'I'm not worried I'm flashing too much ass' sort. 

I wore it with white jeans today as I'm a bit sick of my black ones.. It's so easy to just go for black skinnies when you don't know what to wear don't you think?! I know white isn't really a A/W colour, but I quite like it with this jumper. I'm on the hunt for the perfect casual grey trouser so I can go all matchy-matchy, but for now this will do.

CLUELESS OUTFIT

Hat - H&M, Shirt - Charity Shop, Crop Top - Topshop, Jeans - Primark, Boots - Forever 21

I had to call this 'Clueless Outfit', 'cause it's kind of got that Cher vibe going on I guess? It wasn't that I intentionally opted for dressing all 90s, I just layered up a bit and this is what we ended up with. Plus, it ties in quite well with Halloween.. Is it bad that one of my everyday outfits can also double up as a Halloween costume?! Well, if you're going for that 'I'm not making the effort but I don't wanna look like a total misery guts' sort of thing then I guess this would fit the bill. Slap on some fake blood and Scary Cher from Clueless is complete. I now really want to do this!

I'll just mention the jeans quickly as a few people asked me about them on Instagram. Like Hell am I paying £30+ for a pair of Topshop jeans with a couple of cuts in. These were £7 from Primark and I just snipped them up myself. Nothing fancy, but it does the job. Just make sure you've got your knee slits in the right place.. Nearly made that mistake myself and it would have looked STOOOPID.
