My ASOS 'save for later' is getting out of hand once again and with so much great A/W product going live daily, it's only going to get worse. I'm a real AW girl when it comes to clothing. As much as I love the summer heat, sartorially my brain doesn't go much farther than cut off denim shorts/kimono/denim dungarees/cropped tee, repeat ad nauseam.
Since it's pay day next week and I really need to not save something for my trip to NYC at the beginning of next month, I thought I ought to consolidate my current 'wishlist'. Here's what made the shortlist:

1st Row
ASOS Quilted Coat with Hood - ASOS Fit and Flare Dress with Pleat Detail - Antipodium Check Dress

2nd Row
American Apparel Neon Nail Polish - ASOS Shirt Dress with Aztec Print - Louise Gray Sun Drop Earrings These earrings put the 'wish' in wish list because I'm never going to afford them. But I will love them from afar all the same

3rd Row
ASOS Denim Colourblocked Shirt - ASOS Velvet Wedge Sandals - ASOS Bright Tartan Cape

4th Row
American Apparel Plaid Maxi Skirt - ASOS WHITE Simple Shell Top - ASOS Shirt with Contrast Sleeve


Finally taking a much needed break away from the crazy busyness and intensity that London has had offer lately and housesitting for my parents in Berkshire. Bliss. Fashion month has been like a party happening in the flat above - I can hear it going on around me but it's like a distant something happening to other people! In stark comparison to last season when I was in the thick of LFW, I just didn't have time this year and I'm grateful to finally have the opportunity to take a look through the shows in detail this weekend with a gorgeous garden view and sunshine streaming in through the window (it looks like the Indian summer we all hoped for is happening!).

My first favourite of NYFW was Boy and Girl by Band of Outsiders. Instantly wearable and relaxed with adrogynous details, braces, pyjama shirts and loose shorts from Boy and gorgeous dip dyed crochet and and soft florals from Girl. I only wish there was more of it.

I was already thinking I needed another pair of Liberty print Nike dunks and just in time another 5 styles are released. These are my faves, going to check them out in my lunch break! (I can live on fish fingers and beans for the rest of the month, right?)

I've always been a magpie and I love the 'more is more' approach to styling in this editorial from the October ASOS magazine. Love the varied textures with jacquards, sequins, feathers and metallics layered over one another and the super sized Louise Gray jewellery just adds to the look.

Sharon is my current favourite ASOS model. Beautiful.
