Today’s post is fashion-focused, taking a look at some stylish and cosy options to wear, as just recently, I was introduced to the autumn/winter collection over at JD Williams. It’s a site I’ve not properly browsed before and hadn’t realised there are literally hundreds of lines. (It’s not only fashion either, I was pleased to see lots of lovely homeware, too.)
With the changing seasons, I’ve been quite excited at the prospect of getting back into boots and knitwear. Ankle boots are a perennial favourite of mine, teamed with opaque tights, skinny jeans or jeggings, so it was great to receive these Heavenly Soles Suede Ankle Boots. They’re my perfect autumn footwear; I love suede as it is smart/casual and comfortable with more ‘give’ than regular leather. But these boots have an extra bonus, because they come in a selection of widths. You can have regular D, a wide fitting E or an extra wide EEE, which is an option you certainly don’t get with a lot of boots.
I chose a black pair, but they also come in blue, khaki and stone. The boots have an almond shaped toe and a partially perforated design. They’re so easy to wear too – just pull them on and go! No fiddly zips or laces to hold you up in the morning. With their distinct western vibe, I think they look great with denim. If you struggle with what to wear on an important occasion or even to work, it can create a lot of stress. It would be so much better if you could reach into the wardrobe and always find what you need. I find that if you have a few pairs of jeans and denim skirts you can’t go wrong. Denim is strong, comfortable and easy to clean, making it perfect if you have a busy schedule and want easy to wear skirts and other items you can rely on. Choose a denim skirt length that compliments your height and figure and different details or styles on offer, including skirts with zips, slits or buttons. Even better, why not opt for a denim skirt with pockets to be fashionable and practical at the same time.
For a truly western style ensemble, JD Williams also sent me a cosy black geo print blanket wrap to go with the boots. It’s a great choice for an autumn stroll or daily dash on the school run. One size fits all and it is machine washable acrylic. The design features a mixture of herringbone and dog tooth patterns, graduating from black to grey, and it is such a great layering piece for your wardrobe.
The blanket wrap is a perfect cover up for those colder days.Are you getting your wardrobe autumn-ready? What are your favourite fashion pieces for the new season?
