Autumn is here | feat. House of Fraser

Autumn is finally here. My favourite time of year, apart from the dark nights obviously. I love snuggling up in chunky cardigans and layering up is my favourite look. Although we've hit autumn, it hasn't been too cold up north and that really does surprise me, we're still hitting the twenties! Saying that though, I have been preparing my wardrobe for the cooler months and that means taking my autumn and winter clothing back out of storage. 

Jeans are a perfect wardrobe staple that last seasons in and out, and can be worn for the majority of the year. I do find it hard to find the perfect fit of jeans as I have a big bottom (ooooh-er) and thighs, so I prefer to wear high-waisted skinny jeans as I think these fit a lot better. The beauty of skinny jeans is that they can be worn casually, or changed up really simple for a more formal and dressy look.

Whilst having a browse on the House of Fraser website for a new pair, I came across these Mary Portas high-waisted skinny jeans. I absolutely love them.  For starters I didn't even know she had her own clothing range, but her clothes are really quite exquisite. These particular jeans are lighter at the knees which breaks up the length of my legs. Although I'm almost 5'9 still come in quite long on me so I decided to turn them up and team them with a pair of brogues for a casual look. They would look equally stunning with a pair of heels though. As it's still been quite warm out I decided to team the look with a black and grey chiffon t-shirt from New Look's Inspire collection. I'll definitely be adding a chunky grey cardigan or boyfriend coat when the weather cools down a bit. 

House of Fraser isn't somewhere I would ultimately go for my clothing as they are known to be quite expensive, but having attended more fashion events and seeing a lot of PR lately, it shows that they do have high quality clothing for lower prices, and especially offering designers that you may never have heard of or even known designed clothing!  

Have you sorted your AW wardrobe out yet, and pulled your jeans out from the back?

High waist skinny jeans by Mary Portas - House of Fraser - were £69.00 reduced to £34.50 (bargain price may I add)*
Black contrast chiffon front t-shirt - New Look Inspire - £14.99
