W O R N :: tartan, stripes, + leopard print.



This outfit features pretty much all of the pieces I’ve been wearing most frequently over the past few weeks. An autumn uniform, if you will. Stripes make an appearance in my outfits a good 50% of the time, and these black skinnies from Hobbs are still the best skinnies I’ve ever owned, hands down. But that Olivia Burton beauty? Well, that’s new in my wardrobe. I’ve been wearing the same two watches on rotation for a good few years now- a delicate silver D&G watch I was given by my Godparents for my 21st birthday, and a rather battered old one that once belonged to my Grandad. But then the lovely team behind The Watch Hut got in touch a few weeks ago to see if I might like to try a new watch on for size, and that’s the story of how that gold, white and tan beauty wound up strapped to my wrist! I’m very grateful for it, not least because the face has actual numbers on it which makes it oh so easy to tell time from! I’ve been wearing it pretty much non-stop ever since it arrived (it goes with *everything*!) and now would most definitely consider myself an Olivia Burton disciple.

And now, let’s talk tartan. I’m going to say it now- this is the best scarf I’ve ever owned. It’s giant (basically a picnic blanket masquerading as a scarf), 100 times softer than I expected it to be when I spotted it online, and…it was twenty pounds. TWENTY! It’s so amazing that I just know I’ll be one of approximately fifty billion women and girls wearing it this autumn and winter, but you know what? It’s worth it. There’s nothing better than being able to bury down into a huge, plush scarf on chilly days, and I think this one is going to get a whole lot of airtime this autumn and winter.

    Such a cute outfit! I love the scarf- it looks so cosy – and stripes are always a favourite!

  • http://www.rosedogandco.blogspot.com.au Rosie

    I am such a fan of this combo and is exactly what I wear most of the time. I bought a scarf very similar in Camden Markets at Christmas and did not stop wearing it over the Winter here in Australia.
    Great Rosie minds think alike

    I’m always so jealous of people who can match bold patterns like you have here! I’d be afraid to combine that striped shirt with the plaid scarf and leopard shoes, but it works so well together!


  • http://www.alittlelusciousness.com Rosie

    Those shoes!! So lovely :)

    I am going to Zara on my lunch break for that scarf. For real. I really hope they have it in stock in store!!! Love the watch, too. I need a nice classic look like that. So cute for fall especially.

    Beautiful! im loving tartan at the moment!

  • Jess

    Hi Rosie love your outfit! Ive never ordered anything from boden before but think im going to order the top youre wearing in this pic. What are their sizes like? Thanks

    • Rosie

      Hi Jessica- I’m so sorry I never replied to your comment re. Boden sizing! I find their sizing is always pretty true- they have a little feed of customer reviews on each product page though which often is a good way of finding out if lots of other people are saying an item runs large/small. In general though, I’ve never worn anything from Boden that hasn’t fitted exactly true to size! :) x

    I bought this EXACT scarf in Zara in Spain last week and it’s definitely one of the best things I’ve ever bought! It really is incredibly soft and I love the orange and navy colours :D xx

    Hi! I’m from Canada and want to purchase a Boden breton top online. It’s always tricky to go from US sizes to Uk sizes without trying on. I’m about your size and was wondering what size is your Boden top? I was debating between ordering a size 10 or 12…? I heard Boden tops shrink.
