New Season at River Island |Grey Suede Ankle Boots| Coloured Winter Coats|

What direction do you take with your new season wardrobe? A question we probably ask ourselves every single season. This season is a little different for me, I have never had to wear black for work before which means I want to have colour in my off duty wardrobe.

When I looked at the press images of River Island’s new season the excitement grew and when you look at the images I have included you will be excited too. My off duty style is definitely laid back and inspired by Isabel Marant so these images caught my attention. Some of the pieces are already available but you will have to wait patiently for the rest. The pink coat is mine!

The pieces that I have chosen  I can wear every day for example the gorgeous grey suede ankle boots and the dark pink coat. There are also plenty of pretty pieces for off duty! I love an interesting colour palette and here I have a pale blue tee(my favourite), berry and grey, just delicious. I have also included a gorgeous orange midi skirt, who can resist that and some blue courts to with rolled jeans.

I love the cut out jumpsuit and silver platforms for an injection of glamour, we all need some of that.

White Leather Embellished Jacket |Biker Jackets | Christmas Gifts |

This white leather jacket with embellished sleeves is going to look great winter or summer. I would wear it over jeans and tee or a pretty dress. It is a very lovely piece to keep in your wardrobe.

For me it certainly has that Parisian chic that I love.

A beautiful fur gilet always looks good on a chilly day whether it be over a dress or jeans, they channel a bohemian vibe. These mongolian fur one’s from River Island caught my eye this morning so I hope you like them too.

I always believe that a leather jacket is a great staple at any time of the year, it toughens up pretty dresses, acts as great cover up on chilly summer days and looks just as good with winter knits.

Black is always a safe colour, it goes with everything but there some gorgeous colours out there too. Navy and green’s will always look good with summer brights and will add a touch of colour on a dark winter day.

I have added a Acne white cropped jacket just because I think it is gorgeous and I can’t resist it!
