Styled by Kimberley: Colourful Autumn / Winter Style with Lauren Smith


This week's outfit theme is unbelievably on brand! Red and pink, with a big splash of my favourite blue, is peak Wardrobe Conversations. As Helen explained on Tuesday, we are wearing custom hand embroidered pins made for us by textiles artist Lauren Smith. And the balance of colours on mine is just perfect!

I feel as though I'm always in a pink combo at the moment, although I suppose you haven't seen it here. We've not been blogging much lately so I've got 'new' outfits to share but I've really got into instagram stories lately so I'm feeling under pressure to wear something different. This is the problem with regularly being on social media... got to keep up with the Jones' and all that jazz. Pink trousers and breton stripes were my summer go to- a la my London capsule wardrobe- but now I've swapped them out for a herringbone pink coat and accessories. I've even got a hot pink duck umbrella (you know the ones) to double up.

Leopard print is EVERYWHERE at the moment and I am absolutely living for it, Pat Butcher fan as I am. I'm taking this opportunity to stock up on my favourite neutral, i.e. all animal prints, but I'm a bit worried that such a strong trend will look dated really soon. This new blue and gold jumper from Nine by Savannah Miller is a playful take on it and the quality is pretty good. I think it'll be carrying on in my wardrobe for years to come.  Oh! And I guess the tortoise shell handbag handles. I love a pony skin shoe or a fake cowhide. I've also picked  up a snakeskin dress, tiger striped top and I've got a leopard print scarf and coat (for separate wears) on my list. There's just so much choice! Dalmation remains my favourite print though.

Which animal do you love to wear? (Faux of course!)
