Is one of my favourite times of the day. Some days.
This time though I’m not talking about a cheeky Shiraz more of wine coloured clothing.
The shops are filling up with autumn goodness and an abundance of tempting things to wear as the days get cooler; this autumn where there are also a myriad of brights to choose from, it’s still the darker colours and wines calling me (…as is so often does…).
This was Arket a few days ago – look how fabulous the wine coloured boots, pale pink and navy sit together? The fish plates are pretty cool too.
As much as I might like to – I can’t shop endlessly – sometimes it can be more about shopping your wardrobe as it were, and pulling different combinations together to create a new look. Or layering a different colour under, or over a dress or shirt, to wear it differently in autumn than you might in summer or spring.
I couldn’t help myself but gather some of the above colours that I already have, with a khaki shade and then pale blue thrown in for good measure… (Ah, case in point, I hadn’t meant to include the pale blue shirt in this ensemble… but as I was reaching for the navy blouse I saw it and it looked great against the wine…)
Those wine coloured leather boots from the top photo of the Arket table are these ones… magnificent.
Arket High Heel Leather Boots £175
These trainers were in the newly branded John Lewis & Partners… love the dash of mustard at the back…

Talking of colour combinations…
This is a great colour combo jumper from H&M £17.99… pale pink in here again… and camel, well hello.
Solid wine, styled with leather jeans. Nice.

Oasis at John Lewis & Partners £36
Take a moment to just check out the wine and navy combination here… LOVE.

I’m not sure if this jacket is the same fabric type as the skirt above… gorgeous none the less… the classic styling will mean it can sit happily in your wardrobe for years.
