ASOS Spring OOTD Wish List

It is still really cold in the UK at the moment but I have started thinking about my Spring wardrobe as we have booked a Summer holiday. Woo hoo! We are off to Turkey this year and I wanted to start searching for a few key items for our trip. While I was looking, I found these really cute and casual items which I thought would go together quite nicely so I decided to share an OOTD with you. (Andy asked me what an ‘oouutted’ was the other day and I realised he didn’t know that OOTD stood for ‘Outfit of the Day’!)

All these gorgeous bits are from ASOS as they seem to be my ‘go to’ fashion website of the moment. I am loving earthy tones and have a serious need to be casual, so I opted for this Khaki coloured duster, which is perfect for layering in this really changeable weather but can also be dressed up or down depending on your trousers and footwear. I wanted to smarten the distressed jeans with a nice pair of loafers but my gut was telling me that I really like these Converse Trainers, so lets go with that today.

I have a real love affair with sunglasses but since having children, I can never stomach spending over £100 on something so trivial. I go in to full on mummy mode and think of all the food shopping I can buy with that cash and save by choosing these funky little tortoise shell sunnies instead. Realistically though I’m sure if I chose a pair of Miu Miu’s or Dior’s that one of the children will probably end up bending the arms back anyway!

Lastly to finish off the look, I thought I would go for a red and white stripey tee because anyone who tells you that you have too many striped tops is not the type of person you need in your life!

Thanks for checking out my OOTD today. I really hope it has been a good read. Let me know if you have found any other gems from ASOS and I should be back in a couple of days with my Summer Holiday Wish Lish Haul. Bx

Camel Coat OOTD

Today’s Fashion Friday post features a gorgeous camel coloured coat from Next. I often see a lot of clothes I like in store and online as I buy a lot of Annabelle’s outfits there. Seeing as it is now coat weather and there are so many stylish Autumn ones around at the moment, I thought I would show you an OOTD inspired by this smart little number.

I really like the tailored look of this Next Camel Coat. It is smart enough to wear to the office or for a night out on the town. It can also be dressed down with a pair of ankle boots and oversized scarf.

I’m sure you’ve noticed all the polo necks that seem to be a real hit this season. I have chosen this jumper from Warehouse with horizontal green stripes to complement a cute pair of cigarette style trousers from River Island with zip detail.

Lastly, I found a pair of loafers from Fat Face and a brown City Bag from Zara which was a snip at £19.99. The loafers were £55 so not the cheapest of footwear but I think they are a transitional piece that will take you into Spring 2016.

Do you like the polo necks and camel coloured coats that seem to be really popular this Autumn Season? Would you wear them together? Let me know and feel free to share any OOTDs you have that feature these wardrobe must haves. Bx
