Cotton Candy Hues

It's no secret that I'm a massive fan of cotton candy hues. I love the colour so much that I've doubled up in today's post. Call me crazy or pastel pink obsessed but there's something about this combination that just works. Steering this outfit away from looking too sickly sweet, I've toughened it up with these amazing studded ankle boots and camo print backpack. If you tend to find camo print a bit too masculine then this backpack is a great alternative. This new take on camo is effortlessly girly and the perfect size for fitting all my everyday essentials in. 

Adding varying textures to your outfit in the form of faux suede and pleats makes for a more interesting ensemble, no matter what the colour. Today is the first day where it's actually felt like Autumn. It's the beginning of an endless love affair with Pumpkin Spiced Lattes and Hot Chocolates. I left the house this morning for an early morning breakfast meeting and was pretty damn cold. With a definite Autumn chill in the air, it's time for the winter jumpers to surface from the back of my wardrobe to be layered with some of my favourite pieces, including this suedette biker jacket

If you love these Zara pleated trousers but want to go for a different look try teaming them with a pair of adidas gazelles, grey oversized jumper and layered with a coat for a transitional outfit that's comfy yet effortless. I would absolutely love for you all to check out my latest You Tube video which features the outfit from today's post. Just click on the thumbnail below but more importantly let me know what you all think.
