Yes I may have invented the word ‘mono-cosy’ but it works, right? We’ve got two of my favourite things here, monochrome, and utter cosyness *Thumbs up!*. As I was saying yesterday my ‘thing’ right now is overloading on chunky roll neck knits and here we have my favourite so far (although I’m sure this will change with the next roll-neck purchase) this grey/cream jumper from Forever 21. The coat is actually from Primark (although there is a similar coat from River Island here) and I bought this in a size 12 so that it would be really oversized and snuggly, plus they had no 10’s left and when I want something, I want it there and then or a tantrum will follow imminently! It’s not quite cold enough for gloves yet but when your hand get a little nippy it’s nice to bury them deep in your coat pockets, thus why I’m a massive fan of cross-body bags because they leave you hands free. My latest love after my Chanel Boy bag is this Jimmy Choo Rebel bag covered in teeny tiny star studs, errrrr cute! As I was out and about on this particular day I opted for my trusty Adidas Superstar trainers which you’d probably think were brand new, but they’re actually a couple of months old but I religiously clean them to keep them sparkly white.
A chill is in the air so time to start building up those layers. Chunky roll-neck knits are always a huge staple for me and I recently picked up this one from Dorothy Perkins, who have a great range of knitwear at the moment. To accommodate for my chunky knits I often buy my winter coats one size larger than normal so I have the room to layer up and get nice and snug. I got a size 10 in this camel River Island coat which has just enough room for weaning a knit underneath without feeling restricted. We’ve all been in that ‘I can’t bend my arms’ moment at some point haven’t we! Finishing off this every day casual autumn look, I’ve added this very Burberry-esque floral printed bag (again Dorothy Perkins) to pick up on the blue accents…and just because it’s totally dreamy!

In other news my wedding planning officially commenced on Saturday when me and the future Mr. Ejstyle went to our first ever Wedding Fair. Our little eyes glistened with excitement, he thought he’d fill himself on wedding cake ‘tasters’ and I thought I’d come away full of inspiration…this was not the case. To summarise; it was shit. If there are any other brides-to-be out there there that have experienced severe ‘Wedding-Fair-Let-Down’ then do let me know. I can’t be the only one! We’re now resorting to the ever promising land of Pinterest for inspiration (never fails!) and other such goodness on the internet super highway. We live in the 21st Century, why we ever thought to vere away from the internet is beyond me!
The cape has been unavoidable this season thanks to Burberry and I for one am loving it. Autumn is such a gorgeous time of year and there’s no better feeling than being snuggled up in a giant blanket, and funnily enough, that is essentially what a cape is. So come on girls, lets all make like chic-tramps and blanket up!
Ok slightly lured you in with the title here, no it’s not the return of Miss Bradshaw but it is the return of her wardrobe. You may remember seeing these fluffy shoes, aptly named the ‘Carrie’ back in my post from the MissGuided AW14 press day. Well hurrah to the goddess of shoes as they are now available to buy! They come in 3 colours, black, nude/pink and red but from what I understand they’re selling out fast! There’s also a similar version here featuring a band of faux fur across the strap rather than feathers.
