Transitioning from SS to AW

All_Saints_AW14_coats_gillianleerose

Get ahead with your autumn winter trends with a flashback from the summer. The sun is still glowing (barely) and there’s no reason to completely shut the door on your summer wardrobe, as the transition from one season to another means those pastel tones, skater dresses and stonewash jeans can stick around a little longer.

The catwalks for AW 2014 have seen such a variety of trends, from biker boots and LBD’s with long trailing coats, thrown over large musky grey outerwear. Each of the looks were made up of floral prints, chiffon a line skirts and colours such as yellows and baby pinks, visible under the likes of heavy sheepskin. Coats and jackets such as macs and wool coats are the perfect thing to wear over the top of your summer basics and pre-fall key pieces. There is a great selection available at the moment, in all sorts of styles and cuts.

These heels! Love at first sight sprang to mind when I laid my eyes on these babies. Guess where they are from?….Primark! Guess how much?……£9! How could I possibly resist such a bargain for these gorgeous things? They had a nice nude pair too but unfortunately not in my size. Can’t have it all I suppose eh?!

 This beaut grey backless vest is a much loved ASOS purchase from early last year. It is one of my favourite tops ever! I love grey anyway and the marl style material makes it such a comfy and nice fit. Another massive bonus is the back of the top, it has a low deep v back to it which if you read my blog you will know is something that I love.

I’m sure you can tell from my previous few posts that I absolutely adore anything backless and this certainly isn’t the last back baring piece I’ll be donning. I got this amazing blue Zara dress as a back up dress for a friends wedding a few weeks back. I ended up wearing a different dress but this one was way too beautiful to return so I decided to take it away on holiday with me instead.

Belt: Topshop

Bag: Primark

Necklace: My Name Necklace

 This amazing uber-low back dress is quite an oldie of mine but I don’t wear it nearly half as much as I should, I also have it in black and it’s such a lovely summer dress (tried my best not to get a tan line across my back but it was soooo hard to avoid!).

 I have featured these bits before on the blog but I decided to photograph them anyway. This pinstripe cami is one of my favourites and it’s turned into one of my fail safe go-to tops. I wore it with my New Look denim shorts, they were high waisted roll hem ‘mom’ shorts but I lost weight quite a while back and they ended up on my hips instead of my waist. I took the executuive decision to cut them up as I loved the light shade of denim. I cut the legs shorter so they are now frayed edge light wash baggier style shorts. I kept it all pretty simple for this look. I just added a leopard print belt and my (heavily featured) River Island sandals…..you can tell they are one of my fave pairs eh?!

Dress: Catriona Rose

Bag: Mango

Sandals: New Look

This dress doesn’t need much explaining, it’s one of the most beautiful dresses I own and I am very proud to say that one of my lovely friends Cat is the designer! I have different versions of this dress in a variety of colours and prints. Wearing them will never get old, they are such stand out dresses and always receive so many compliments. They are the perfect dresses to takeaway on holiday with you and are just real show stoppers. (The wind was a bit of a mare as my hair was all over the place for the pictures but luckily the dress distracts from that)
