Guest blog | Autumn Shopping

Tuesday 3rd October 2017

Maybe it’s just me, but I’m loving animal prints lately and leopard print is a big trend this season. I spotted a few retailers showcasing this trend, from Radley, to Next and SoleTrader. This leopard print crossbody bag from Radley is not only a bargain at £74, but the perfect everyday size. I was tempted to pick one up myself! There’s a matching purse available too if you’re quick. There’s also a couple of snakeskin inspired bags too, which are great to really make your outfit pop.

Not feeling the animal print so much? There’s a forest green tote for £146 that’s buttery soft, or the red Paternoster which is a very cute update on the saddle bag for £85.

Mustard is another big colour for autumn/winter and M&S have some great blazers in for only £14.50. A great way to try out a pop of colour, or there’s a khaki green, cornflower blue and black available too.

Autumn to me usually means new boots and when I’m not in heels I’m fond of Timberlands after picking up a pair back in January. I spotted this teal blue pair for £89 in Sole Trader which are a nice alternative to the usual tan/black pair you might opt for.
If you’re braving the outdoors this autumn, and you should because it’s a beautiful time of year, make sure you pop by Craghoppers and Regatta to stock up on some layers. A big chunky bobble hat never goes out of style!

Looking to update your shower/bath routine? Head along to The Body Shop to see the special edition Vanilla Pumpkin range. There’s handbag friendly hand cream, or treat yourself to the body butter to work into that Sunday night pamper.

Needing a little pick me up mid-shop? Starbucks have brought back the pumpkin spice latte and there’s a new pecan latte available this year too. Nothing says autumn quite like sipping a hot drink in a cosy new jumper.
Happy Shopping!
