Eek my first blogger style challenge! I stumbled across this challenge from House of Fraser and just couldn't resist giving it a go. You can find it yourself here! The challenge is to create an Autumn/Winter look using new season pieces from the House of Fraser website, write about your key look then post a link to your blog post on the HOF blog. What could you win? £200 worth of HOF vouchers. How could you not want to try!

Overall I've gone for a simple, chic look focusing on the embellished collar from this lovely Oasis shirt. I love everything studded so this shirt is perfect to make a statement yet also appear elegant and girly! Mixing this with the Vero Moda leather look leggings creates a grungy twist on the tailored look. Everyone knows the famous Disco Pants are extremely popular right now and they are definitely sticking around for some time, these leather effect leggings are something a little bit different yet still holding the shine and flattering cut of Disco Pants, absolutely perfect for nights out in colder months.

Rose gold jewellery has hit the catwalk and high street in a major way recently and will still look fantastic as we get into a/w. The Michael Kors watch is a blogger favourite and I've been lusting over it for so long now, the rose gold makes a serious statement and is a nice change from standard gold. I'm matching this with the lovely rocking horse ring from Ted Baker, how cute is it?!

I'm all for oversized black bags, so when I saw this Jaeger Olympia City bag I fell in love. It's simple and chic, stunning and has a definite luxurious look about it. Mind you, so it should for £300! The next accessory is pretty much a necessity; this lovely floral umbrella from Radley, because let's face it, it will rain. It has a lovely vintage look and definitely worth the splurge!

These Kurt Geiger wedges are just divine and will definitely make a statement mixed with any outfit! Here however, I absolutely love the contrast in texture between the leather effect found in the leggings and the suede wedges, so this combination is just perfect. 

Last, but certainly not least, are my beauty picks for making this look more edgy! First of all the Bobbi Brown lip colour in Desert Plum, perfect. Plum/deep red colours are fantastic colours for a/w and this lipstick is full coverage, creamy and semi matte designed for the perfect application. The Shu Uemura mascara is perfect for building precise, volumized and dramatic lashes to really set off your make up.
