Outfit Post: How To Add Colour To Your Autumn Outfit

Colourful Rain Coat, Bright Winter Coat

I have received so many comments about my awesome yellow coat already this Autumn, at least half of the people I interact with during the day mention the colour or how happy and bright it is and I love that. I’m a huge lover of Autumn and wrapping up in layers and scarves, but I know for a lot of people the dreary weather can bring them down so brightening someone’s day with a bit of colour is such a simple thing to do to spread a little love in the drizzle.

My favourite way to add colour to your Autumn outfit is to swap out a key piece, that is traditionally a dark, earthy shade, for something bold and bright like this coat that JD Williams sent me to try out. It’s an instant transformation. If that’s too much of a bold move for you at first, try something smaller instead like some fun patterned wellies instead of the traditional green or even a bright patterned scarf and a dash of red lipstick – it really will add a smile to your day.

My Harris Tweed scarf is an oldie that I dug out from my cupboard this year as the yellow streak and primary shades match my yellow raincoat perfectly. I used to work for a company that manufactured clothing and accessories from this hand woven cloth and unfortunately my journey with them ended bitterly so I had packed up all my Harris Tweed items and hidden them away as much as I could. Now some time has passed I think I can try to enjoy them again and create some new memories from the ashes of those old ones. Clothing is so emotive for me and instantly sends me back to a moment when I bought it or wore it for the first time.

I really love this raincoat and I took it to Paris with me as it was perfect for sightseeing and would fold up neatly in my backpack when it was dry. The pockets are huge too, which is great for me and all my cameras! I love the drawstring waist as it gives a lovely feminine shape where other raincoats can just look like a sack and the hood has a little peak so the rain doesn’t drip down onto my glasses. I would say the sizing is on the generous side, which is what you need in a coat – you’ve got to be able to throw it over layers of jumpers and scarves, plus it’s not a warm coat either, so you do need those layers. My only bug bear is that it doesn’t have a zip down the front, but it’s reasonably priced and comes in navy too if you’re not quite ready to glow bright yellow this Autumn! Loves x xx

The Five WOWs: Bohemian Bedroom Decor

Bohemian Style Bedroom

Rag Rug | Second Nature  //  Moroccan Style Mirror |
Home Accessories | H&M  //  Woven Baskets | Happy Piece  //  Embossed Sideboard | Debenhams

I think we’re pretty much settled on having a fun, wanderlust style, bohemian bedroom decor when we finally move into our house. We love the cosy and homely feel to it and I like the idea that if a couple of things are out of place it won’t be too obvious. This kind of easy living is definitely our thing.

We’re planning on layering up tonnes of these rag rugs, like this gorgeous, colourful one from Second Nature and the Moroccan touches will add a bit of style and sophistication. The shape of this mirror from is gorgeous.

My favourite piece is the sideboard from Debenhams, but I think it’s a little bit out of our budget. I’d love to try and DIY something similar, but I’m not sure my skills are up to scratch. I do have some more ideas for our decor in my Bohemian Pinterest board, below. I’ll be updating this a lot, so make sure you follow if Boho is your thing!
