My Style: Autumnal Layering and Breton Stripes

MyStyleBreton8 My Style: Autumnal Layering and Breton Stripes %tagI am a huge fan of autumn, mainly because it suits my layering style, and this week with the lingering fog and chill in the air my need for layers has become more apparent. We are in the midst of press day season, lots of time away from my computer, mentally making my spring/summer 2013 shopping list, as well as constantly being in and out of different venues – so this look was perfect.

I am a fan of parka coats and this one from Dorothy Perkins is one of my favs and has been in my wardrobe for around five years and still looks fresh each season. It isn’t the warmest of coats, so generally autumn is when I wear it, but I love the shape, the drawstrings and the pockets – plus khaki green really does work with most colours.

When I look at this outfit I realise how many capsule wardrobe pieces it contains, that wasn’t intentionally but does show that when you buy classic pieces such as black jeans, a long draping cardigan and a Breton striped top what you can come up with.

This Breton striped top from Crew Clothing is fast becoming one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe, I love that it is perfect for layering under a cardigan and it is comfortable to wear, which is ideal for a busy day.

Today, I also went to the OPI Nails spring preview, checked out all the fab colours coming and also got a pretty manicure – I am in love with the new Liquid Sand shades coming – I do love matt textured looks. I also think that my purple splash nails also goes well with my pink arm candy, especially my Chamilia bracelet that was designed in aid of Breast Cancer awareness month.

Finishing off my look are my new biker boots from Tribeca shoes a cool footwear emporium of the latest trends. What makes these boots my new favourites has to be the style – I love the studs, they are seriously comfortable, and every time I wear them I can’t believe they are only £35 – serious bargain!

Do you love autumnal layering? And are you a fan of Breton stripes?

Avengers Assemble: Cobie Smulders In Reem Acra

Cobie1 Avengers Assemble: Cobie Smulders In Reem Acra %tag

Who: Actress Cobie Smulders

Where: At the “Marvel’s The Avengers” Premiere during the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival at the Borough of Manhattan Community College in New York City

Wearing: An orange Reem Acra v-neck gown with embellished cap sleeves from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with a gold Judith Leiber clutch, a matching cuff, and drop earrings

Verdict: I am loving Cobie Smulders she has really surprised me on this Avengers promo tour, each look has been amazing, I loved the sexy Donna Karan, she blew me away in that vibrant red Alexandra Vidal, but I think this bold orange has to be my favourite and it is all because of those amazing embellished cap sleeves.

Which has been your favourite Cobie look?

Tribeca Film Festival: Camilla Belle In Prada

CamillaBellePrada Tribeca Film Festival: Camilla Belle In Prada %tag

Who: Camilla Belle

Where: At the 7th Annual Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner in New York

Wearing: A floral crochet Prada dress from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with navy Rupert Sanderson heels and a matching satin clutch

Verdict: I have to be honest I sometimes feel that Camilla plays it a little too safe, and some what boring and can be quite old-fashioned, but with her beauty she really could rock the most amazing looks, and I have to admit I have been quite surprised with her wardrobe choices at Tribeca.

Not only has she been spotted in high street brands Reiss and Whistles, but I think this is quite a daring look for her in Prada, OK so it isn’t racy in its silhouette with plunging necklines and thigh-high splits, but it surprised me seeing her in it, but I am so glad she did as I love this dress on her.

As well as loving her dress, it is her hair that completely floors me, seriously shiny, I am very jealous!!!
