Rings & necklaces - H&M

When I planned this outfit I didn't intentionally choose all New Look items, but then I guess about half my wardrobe is from there so it was bound to happen! 

Even though we're heading into November, I'm not ready to give up florals and with the gorgeous, sunny, autumn weather why should I?! I love that the darker tones of this shirt make it work for autumn - it'll brighten up many a dull winter day I'm sure, and remind me of spring days. 

I'm normally a jeans girl, but these black cigarette trousers are a nice alternative. You can't see in the photos but they have gold, contrasting zips on the hips which are a cute touch. Also you can't go wrong with a fedora - I think they're gonna become my staple autumn accessory! I absolutely love this deep burgundy colour, I think it's my favourite winter shade.

What are your favourite autumn looks?

NON-FANCY DRESS HALLOWEEN IDEAS

Love From Lisa Non-Fancy Dress Halloween Ideas

Links: Burgundy Velvet Dress | Velvet Chokers | Faux Leather Skirt | Burgundy Platforms | Teal Faux Fur Collar | Black Lace Crop Top | Green Velvet Bralet | Black Faux Fur Cape | Black Statement Necklace | Blue Velvet Dress | Black Lace Cat Ears | Navy Velvet Cami | Black Platform Boots | Black Skater Dress



I do love the idea of fancy dress. But sometimes, when you're on a budget, if you're gonna buy something you want to be able to wear it more than just once! Luckily the highstreet is awash with deep velvet and gothic lace - perfect for Halloween. Plus they can be incorporated into your wardrobe meaning that you get more wear out of your hard-earned pennies! 

These pieces aren't what I'd usually wear but I love all of them! The lace-trimmed faux leather skirt is one of my absolute faves. I'd team it with the velvet bralet & dark lipstick for a vampy Halloween look or with a simple white shirt for everyday.

What are you wearing this Halloween?

NAILS OF THE WEEK | BARRY M PAPRIKA

Love From Lisa Nails of the Week Barry M Paprika
I'm a huge fan of deep, dark nail colours during autumn and I am loving Barry M's current shades. I've said before that Barry M nail varnishes are some of my faves because they're so affordable but also such great quality, and this one doesn't disappoint! It applies perfectly with no 'gloopiness' and doesn't streak.

I think you could possibly get away with just one coat, but I like to make the colour super opaque and strong so I did two. The more I look at this colour the more I love it. It's called Paprika but to me it just looks like milk chocolate - maybe that's why I like it so much!

I do love a good old fluffy cardigan in the autumn and this one from New Look is perfect. It's an eyelash knit, but importantly isn't at all scratchy like so many are! I've found myself throwing this on time and time again as the weather's been getting colder. It's quite slouchy and oversized so it makes for quite a casual look, but I'm thinking of belting it around the waist for a more defined shape.

PINTEREST LATELY...

Find all images here.

It's taken me a while to properly get into Pinterest but now I can spend ages scrolling through pages and pages of amazing photos! I particularly love trawling through the fashion pages. Not only are the outfits gorgeous, but the actual photos are beautiful too - I'd love to get my fashion pics looking like that!

I've recently been pinning loads of bedroom inspirations and ideas. I want to redecorate my room in the next few months and Pinterest is an absolute dream for interiors. I've pinned so many though it's gonna be tricky deciding on one style...

I also like pinning things I see when I'm online shopping rather than bookmarking them. I like keeping them all in the same place so I can scroll through when I'm stuck for ideas!

Do you like Pinterest?

Looking at these photos it's safe to say autumn is definitely here! Although the temperature's dropped I am liking the crisp sunny days and crunchy autumn leaves (the rain can stay away though!). 

Saying that, I think it's still been warm enough to not need a winter coat just yet, so I've been hanging onto this summer's kimono trend. This is technically a shirt but I prefer to wear it undone and loose. To add an autumn vibe I've paired it with my faux fur scarf/stole. I love how faux fur looks - both stylish and super-cosy! 

Also just gotta say, this may be the best I've ever done a bun - I normally have at least ten attempts trying to achieve that undone, effortless look before giving up!

I used Barry M Nude for the base and the dot is a Collection berry shade - I don't know the name because it's rubbed off the bottle...

I'm really into simple, minimal nail art at the moment. Not only do they look pretty stylish but they're also a lot quicker to do! There's not a lot I can say about these so I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. You can check out my other minimal nail art ideas in this post here.

What are your favourite simple nail art designs?

TARTAN LOVE

Love From Lisa: Tartan Trend

Links L-R: Crop Top / Cigarette Trousers / Blanket Cardigan / Playsuit / Bow / Crop Top / T-Shirt / Pencil Skirt / Duffle Coat / Dress / Cigarette Trousers
If you read my last post you'll know tartan is one of my favourite autumn trends. It was huge last year and I'm very happy that it's still all over the highstreet! These are some of my favourite picks. I particularly love the Oasis co-ords in the bottom right hand corner, I think they're gorgeous together but would also work well with other separates. I'm also really drawn to the blanket wrap cardigan - who doesn't want to walk around in a blanket all day?! Perfect for a casual weekend outfit.

What're your favourite autumn trends?

THE TARTAN SCARF

One super exciting thing about autumn is that it's finally time to break out the tartan again! At the moment I seem to be instantly drawn to anything tartan - skirts, dresses, even pjs! I just love how it's so easy to wear and literally suits everyone.

I love this scarf and I've been so excited at the thought of being able to dig it out again. I bought it last year when I was in Venice - from H&M, how cultured am I?! It's so thick & cosy - when it's unfolded it's actually more like a blanket, so it's perfect for those cold wintery days.

I love teaming it with a simple, casual outfit. I bought this pretty top this weekend and I really like the detail at the back and the shimmery, metallic material. I love how it looks with a casual pair of jeans but I'm also thinking it'll be cool with some black leather-look trousers & ankle boots.
