girl meets boy

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

I have already spoken about my love for Autumn and the desire to have a wardrobe full of beautiful coats. So, taking a closer look at my wardrobe, it seems I have got myself into a style rut. Maybe not so much a rut, but I seem to dress in a way I know and like. At the moment, it's a very boyish look. A mixture of oversized knits and tops with tailored/slim trousers.

I am very much an admirer of fashion, When on Pinterest, I always find myself searching for style inspiration and pinning the outfits I love. Above, are some looks that reflect that casual, boyish look (I surprised myself by not using a single Alexa Chung image in this collage). The oversized coats, button down shirt and woolly hats, are all very much to my taste.

So, yesterday I spotted the perfect footwear for this post. Amie over at Credit Crunch Chic modelled a pair of beautiful monk shoes on her blog, here. These shoes are now on my Christmas wish list and look great worn with skinny jeans, very mod!

Below, I have made a Asos wishlist. I limited myself to six items, which was a hard task when you have endless options to chose from. The faux fur collar would be a great piece to add some colour and texture to any outfit. I also adore the jumper by Fred Perry - a British brand famous for its boyish charm!

  9. The camel coloured turtleneck sweater you've picked is just gorgeous! I've been searching for a jumper that colour for the past few weeks but haven't found anything in the shops. May have to make a cheeky asos order now xx

  15. What are your thought on the ankle length coast that are around at the moment? I can imagine them being totally your style! I think they would drown me, but I love them on other people!
