Knitwear goals for autumn with Femme Luxe Finery

IMG_6555

I think what I love about the knitwear trend we are seeing this season is that it isn’t just jumpers or cardigans, its anything from amazing dresses to metallic mesh going out tops. Knitwear is such a versatile addition to anybody’s wardrobe, and thats really why I love it so much. Femme Luxe Finery is genuinely my go to when it comes to all things knitwear, I adore a cropped jumper over a midi dress, or in the case of the above picture a midi shirt dress. This Ivy khaki cable knit cropped jumper is the perfect length for layering, which is going to be something I am doing constantly in the colder months.

So on to the more fancy of the knitted trend and my absolute fave these Inaaya metallic knit gold trousers, I mean if you want to dress up an outfit then these are surely your go to. I decided to style these trousers for the day, for a more casual look, with some brown ankle boots & an oversized t-shirt. I love how they can work for both day and night, and would look absolutely amazing with a crop top and barely there heels too.

Knitwear for a night out? Absolutely yes please, this metallic knit rose gold tie wrap midi dress looks amazing done up like this over a slip dress, or even worn open over a white tee and vintage mom jeans. The metallic trend is so huge for autumn/winter this season, and I really think that knitwear is the way to do it, if you are really scared of wearing full on silver or gold. Give me knitwear any day and I will be happy!

As the summer draws to a close and the nights start to get a little longer, there are only two things I want to wear, leopard print and knitted everything. I’ve recently discovered the brand Femme Luxe Finery and I am absolutely obsessed with everything they offer, such amazing quality at such affordable prices. The dress I am wearing above is the Serenna tan leopard print cami strap maxi dress, its sooo beaut at night with heels, or in the day dressed down with trainers.

Above is this absolutely gorgeous Thea cream cami knitted side split maxi dress, it is so gorgeous for when the weather is warm in the day. I love that it can also be dressed up for night with a vintage chain belt and a blazer.

Can you get a leopard print top that is anymore perfect? This Leanne tan leopard print tie front crop top is so flattering on, I actually sized up for a little more coverage, which was a perfect decision for me as it fits perfectly. I’ve loved tie front tops this season, they have been my go to for both day and night.

Finally the most stunning little back button front mini dress, that I am actually wearing in this picture as a top. The Kerry black ribbed knit button detail mini dress, is honestly the cutest little dress. I love how versatile this piece is, especially as it looks so cute as both a dress & a top.

Rose Gold Daniel Wellington Watches For Women

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

I think a beautiful rose gold watch will always be timeless, it doesn’t matter what your age is, or what your style is, a rose gold watch is such a classic, that it really does suit everyone. This Daniel Wellington watch I am wearing is the Classic Petite Melrose in 32mm and you guys knows that in terms of accessories, I love a classic gold as it really of-sets the tones and the colours that I love to wear. Also really excited to let you guys know that you can use my discount code ‘GRACESURGUY’ for 15% off everything on the site.

I love how watches from Daniel Wellington are so affordable, which means they make such an amazing gift, I mean who doesn’t want a few watches to choose from to change up your look. I also love the fact you can change your Daniel Wellington watch strap at anytime as they are interchangeable, which means you can have a pretty much new look without having to buy a brand new watch!

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

My favourite would definitely be the Daniel Wellington Mesh straps, just like the Classic Petite Melrose in the above picture.

Whether you are looking for men’s watches or watches for women, Daniel Wellington will always be my go to place for the perfect watch. In the above picture I am wearing the Classic Durham in the 40mm I love the oversized shape and style. That almost give my look a kind of masculine and androgynous vibe, and even more of a retro, 70’s vibe that I love.

One of the coolest things about Daniel Wellington is that you can change up the watch straps so easily. It makes it such a cool personalised accessory, that you will love for years to come.

Why we all need a striped blazer

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

Oh another blazer you say?? Yes just yes, honestly I love them so much,  they are so versatile, I love how you can wear them to the office mega smart, then with a crop top and relaxed linen trousers for the weekend. This striped blazer from Shein was an absolute bargain at only £23, and its really light and summery which I love.

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

One of my favourite ways to wear a blazer is with a crop top, this is because I love pairing something that is known as quite a smart item of clothing, with something so casual. Also you can’t beat a pair of linen trousers, I don’t think so! Especially for the crazy hot summer we have been having in the UK. Its been so amazing to just put on such a comfy, breezy pair of trousers, when the weather is sweltering outside!!

Checked blazers for autumn

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

I had the biggest obsession with checked blazers during autumn/winter last year, and I wasn’t sure we were going to be seeing this beautiful piece so popular again this year. Lucky here it is, all over the high street, and I am so excited about it. This checked blazer from Shein is one of my favourite so far (also its only £22!!), I actually sized up so it would fit a lot more oversized, the sizes fit slightly smaller at Shein, so I got a large.

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

I also think my favourite type of blazer is definitely a double breasted version, they seem to sit so much better on the body, plus I also love them fastened up. Even better if you can find the matching trousers and wear as a suit (I actually think this Shein version has a matching skirt, which I totally missed!). I am wearing this oversized blazer with a black t-shirt dress (which I also sized up in) and my pride and joy, my new Balenciaga Triple S trainers (which are an absolute dream by the way).

Summers co-ords and the perfect night

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

I wanted to tell you guys about the best night I had last Wednesday, that was honestly right up my street. Not many people know this about me but I have a degree in english literature, and Shakespeare is one of the loves in life. I went for an amazing meal at Cote restaurant in West Brigdford, for the pre theatre set menu which was so yummy (I had pate and breaded chicken and fries, incase you wondered) and then on to my local showcase cinema for a live showing of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Romeo and Juliet.

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

It was just like being at the theatre (you even had an interval, were of course you can purchase sweets…yum) and the performance itself was beautiful, a contemporary production with young talented actors. If you are a Shakespeare lover like I am, I would highly recommend this to you. For this night out I wore the above black linen style button up co-ord from Ikrush, with a pair of low heeled court shoes from Topshop, and a beige linen blazer from H&M. For me this was the perfect date night/week night out outfit, that can be made more casual with a pair of low heels and a straw bag.

Summer days and tie front tops

I honestly can’t get over the weather we are having in the UK at the minute, it is seriously amazing. The days are long and warm, and it makes me so happy.

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

Especially because it means I am able to wear some of my favourite styles of clothing without freezing my butt off! One being a tie front top, which is honestly such a flattering style, even on someone which a bigger chest size, as long as there is enough material to cover everything then it is such a stunning look.

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

My fave top ever is this beaut gingham top from Nasty Gal, give me something tie front and gingham any day, and I will wear it forever! Also we need to talk about these white tailored trousers also from Nasty Gal, they are the most flattering white trousers ever. As they are very high-waisted it makes the fit ever nicer. I am wearing a medium in both the trousers and top, and am a UK size 10 for reference. The third thing that has to be mentioned is these big gold earrings, the perfect accessory for the summer, these door knocker style earrings are also from Nasty Gal and are such a summer statement, I love them.
