Good afternoon Style lovers! I hope you’re all well and are enjoying this beautiful time of year.

Today i’d like to share with you a little outfit inspiration post, perfect for an Autumnal day or evening out! Whilst the leaves begin to crisp and the air starts to bite, I have put together a few of my favourite pieces, that will keep you as snug as a bug, yet still managing to give you that on trend and glamorous look.

One of my favourite trends this season, is the extension of the floral trend. We saw it boom throughout SS14, and has developed into something i’m sure will carry us right through to the heart of winter! With the subtle features of Autumnal colour ways and more warm toned prints, florals are the perfect ‘pop’ of something, when paired with items that are a little more muted down. This stunning floral shirt, placed underneath my favourite faux fur collared cape (by Next), is from H&M at a fantastic 19.99 – although I recently heard it’s now cheaper if you buy online, so gogogo my little floral friendlings!

To draw the Autumnal colours out of my shirt, I decided to add a block berry coloured head piece, by wearing my gorgeous Gemini hat! As stated within my previous post, Gemini is a leading independent, selling brands such as French Connection (which is who this hat is by), Hobbs, Sandwich Clothing….and many more, so go and give them a cheeky check out and a like on Facey B! This piece adds a little statement to the outfit, and in my opinion, brings it all together. What would we do without accessories, ay?

Finally I’m wearing my trusty, chunky shoes from Topshop, and a pair of subtle snake print like leggings :). What items are you loving at the moment? If you have any favourites or have written a similar outfit post to this, leave me a link in the comments, as i’d love to check them out!

AW14 Wearable Styling with Gemini-Fashion!

Gemini – A leading independent stockist, selling contemporary British, Scandinavian and European fashion!

To me, Gemini is THE perfect go-to online store, in terms of finding those all essential wearable pieces, for any type of occasion or season! Since October has gracefully greeted us with its glistening presence, and true leaf-crunching nostalgia, I decided to share a few of my favourite Autumn/Winter items, predominantly from one of Gemini’s most growingly popular ranges, Sandwich-Clothing.

Gemini invited myself and two other babe’in bloggers, Sophie & Steph, into their Studio, where we had the opportunity to style up some of the pieces, shown below. I wanted to showcase a variety of wearable looks, in terms of professional work wear and day wear, which could also be easily transformed into an evening outfit, with just a change in accessories or shoes. Ofcourse, this season’s must have colours, include ones that are magically muted down and wonderfully warm, with the odd pop of cool tones, thrown in for good measure! It’s certainly an exciting time of year, and is one of my favourites, due to the versatility of layering!

I’m also a huge fan of appropriately enhancing a fresh face…which leads me on to the next exciting element of the shoot! The day with Gemini also consisted of some rather insightful hair and makeup prep, created by two lovely ladies, over at Benefit cosmetics and Mathew Curtis hair salon. Consequently, if you’re interested in seeing a separate blog post, focussing upon the latest AW hair & makeup trends, then do let me know in the comments, as i’d love to include some of the advice I was given, from my day too!

So, without further or do, grab a cuppa, load up Gemini, and if you’re interested in a little AW fashion inspo, then do scroll on.

With this look, it’s all about the hat! Adding statement accessory pieces can really work wonders in terms of creating an on trend, yet wearable look, no matter the occasion or season. Make sure you take some ‘snaps’ too – polaroids preferable!

 This look just oozes a leisurely ladies lunch date! With a coffee in one hand, and perhaps some shopping bags in the other?, this look is perfect for taking you from the cold to warm in a matter of layers. The boots are SO cute too!

Finally, if you fancy quirking it up a little, why not get creative with your comfys! Wearing heeled boots and a statement necklace with more casual and muted down items, gives the outfit wearability and style.

There are so many more outfits I’d have loved to have shared, but I think it’s time you took a peek for yourself! Do let me know what staple pieces you’re loving this season, and if you’ve styled them up, leave your links in the comments below!
