Ask me how I would describe this outfit and the first thing that comes to my mind is ‘pumpkin spice and everything nice’. But we’re not here to talk about pumpkins, although I am really glad I don’t look like a big, fat one wearing these orange trousers. Orange is the new black, right? #bebold. Today I wanted to share with you some of my favourite fashion pieces for this season which I’m pretty sure I’m going to wear A LOT during this autumn, not necessarily all in one outfit like I did for this post, but you get the gist.
The teddy coat
If you haven’t got yourself a teddy coat for this season then I urge you to invest in one! I mean I’m not forcing you but you are missing out big time. I know I’m not very original and most bloggers have a coat in this style, but do I care? No, not really.
This is the comfiest, cosiest coat I’ve ever owned and every time I put it on I feel like I’m on a cloud. The teddy fur or whatever you want to call this fabric is literally a dream. I have no doubt it will keep me nice and warm throughout the cold seasons.
I got mine from Urban Outfitters in beige, but it also comes in black. If you’re not a fan of this particular one, do not worry, there’s plenty of fish in the sea because literally every brand has jumped on the teddy coat bandwagon. Topshop, H&M, Monki and the list goes on.
The orange trousers might be my favourite fashion purchase of 2017. And one of the most spontaneous ones as well. I was five minutes into a haul video on YouTube and the next thing you know I was on Asos adding the trousers into my shopping basket.
I’m not going to lie, I was low key scared they won’t look good on me and that they won’t fit me right. I’m not usually this bold with my trousers. I used to think that Topshop Jamie Jeans are life and nothing else could ever replace my love for them. However, I have decided to branch out and sort of revamp my wardrobe in the bottoms department. For example, I wore a skirt last week (check out my latest blog post for pictures of that) and now I’m wearing bright, orange trousers?? I’m telling you kids, my beloved Jamie Jeans are now hidden somewhere at the back of my wardrobe. New Alina, who dis?
Anyway, I’m quite literally obsessed with these trousers at the moment. They are super comfortable, super flattering and the colour can’t get more autumnal than this, which makes me really happy.
I admit. I wasn’t really into sock boots when they first started to come out because I couldn’t find a pair that really screamed my name. But browsing the depths of Asos is dangerous, because you never know where it will take you and what hidden gem you’re going to find. So that’s basically how I found my ideal pair of sock boots and of course I had to buy them and start wearing them as soon as possible.
Although the size of the boots is good for me and the heel is not even that high, after a few hours of wear I start getting a bit uncomfortable in them. But that’s because I have quite weird feet like they’re wide and I’m dealing with bunions as well, which are the bane of my life because they make it impossible for me to wear certain type of shoes i.e stilettos. However, that won’t stop me from wearing my sock boots and I guess it’s okay to suffer from fashion sometimes.
Besides this small inconvenience, I really like these boots. They’re very flattering and they look so nice on the leg and I think they can definitely take any outfit from 0 to 100.
It’s been a minute since I’ve done a blog post on something that is not beauty related so I do hope you enjoy this rather different thing from me.
