I hope you’re all having a lovely week – how crazy is the weather today? I arrived back from Milan last night at 12am, and even then the wind was bad, it wasn’t the most pleasant landing – but it seems to have gotten worse and worse since then. Our gorgeous summer weather has certainly said it’s goodbyes – but that’s ok because with Autumn comes gorgeous Autumn clothes, and my birthday of course haha!
My birthday was wedged between two trips this year (not a bad way to celebrate it!). I was in Corsica last week and I’m heading to Milan later today on a press trip. I’m very excited to head to Milan and to experience the pre Fashion Week madness. I missed all the fashion weeks this season as it was just so busy, but I’ve promised myself I’ll make it in February. I just love any reason to get dressed up in anything you want, and to take in all the upcoming trends. Speaking of which, I’m very excited to be working with H&M again this season to show you my favourite pieces from their Autumn collection in shops now. There is a lot of burgundy, some checkered and of course some gorgeous ankle boots. With my life being as crazy busy as it is, I try to plan my outfits in advance so I’m organised and have nice outfits ready to go. Below you can see 4 different outfits I’ve styled up for 4 different things.
This outfit is for my brothers 18th birthday this weekend. I can’t believe he’s turning 18, my own 18th feels like yesterday! Here I’m wearing a cami top, ankle length slacks, snake print court heels, a faux fur coat and gold earrings.
I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it. The ruffles and shape are just so pretty and flattering. Pair it with tights in the winter, or bare legs on the warmer days – it’s the perfect transitional piece, and great for layering as you’ll see in the next outfit.
Here I’m wearing the same dress as the last photo, but I have layered it up with a knit roll neck jumper over it, and a gorgeous camel wool blend coat on top. These boots are an amazing find as well. They’re only €34.99.
H&M is my go-to shop as it really can dress me for every occasion: comfy days in, nights out, the gym, work, it’s got it all! In particular I love them for their knitwear and coats this time of year. They are very reasonably priced, you get the best quality and they are always on point with the trends (I mean look at the faux fur brown coat, it’s to die for!)
I always consider September the start of a new year (since my school days), so I like to start the year with some new, nice pieces in my wardrobe. Let me know what you think of these new additions, which outfit is your favourite?
I’ll be back soon with more fashion, in the meantime you can find my on Instagram (@louisecooney_)
Have a great week guys
A big thanks to H&M for partnering with me on this post
