Autumn Slouchy Knit || OOTD

Another promised outfit post today. 
I've found myself opting for something a little more casual and slouchy than my usual dress. Mainly because I've realised my style isn't set in stone and it's fun to experiment with clothes, I like to see how different fabrics work together and see how layering can change a look, and how clothes can alter a silhouette.
I find Autumn is the perfect time to experiment with fashion - it's not too hot to layer things us, and garments tend to be a lot more textured.
This outfit provides the ultimate comfort. The black ASOS culottes have become a staple in my wardrobe - considering I never wore trouser until about a year ago, this is a big deal. They just go with everything and the flared legs mean they add a little shape to any outfit. Plus I like how they move, and enjoy the slightly awkward length of them. 

I'd decided to pair them with a pink fine knit jumper from ASOS. It's a little see-through so does require a vest/cami underneath. It's baggy in all the right places and cuffed on the sleeves making it the ultimate cosy, slightly over sizes piece. It's a fine knit, so can be both tucked or untucked. 

This knit does scag quite easily, but I love how it looks nonetheless. Plus who doesn't love the shade of pink? I want all the pink knitwear I can get my hands on tbh. 
Keeping with the comfy, pink and black theme I've got going on, I decided to wear it with my pink Nikes, and have some cute AF little socks poking through, because I just like how it looks - I just think socks can actually add a bit of something to an outfit, if you want them to, and I want them to. 

What do you think of this look?


October Round Up.

I used to write a weekly round-up post, where I’d reflect on the previous week and share all the great things I read, watched and enjoyed. I found writing them somewhat therapeutic but they soon got abandoned as they were difficult to schedule and writing them on Sunday wasn’t always an option. I missed them so I’ve decided to start writing a monthly round up instead. 

So October, honestly, I’ve been a bit of a hermit this month, a mixture of trying to save money and trying to get organised with uhhh, life, has meant my social life hasn’t exactly been blossoming, nonetheless, I’ve enjoyed the month. 

October is one of my favourite months, I’m a big fan of autumn so just find myself feeling more content this time of year. My highlights from the month have included going to a Halloween Party, and for a lovely Autumn Walk with plenty of photo opportunities (as you can see in this post). Feeling poorly has meant I had to cancel a few plans which is a shame but despite my cold, I'm feeling perkier that I was.
