LOVE LEATHER

As the new seasons collections hit the highstreet I’m getting increasingly excited about my new Autumnal wardrobe!  This year I’m having a mini love-affair with leather, it’s tough, warm, classic, sexy and absolutely the perfect solution as the temperature drops.  Depending on the occasion you can dress it up or down, team with soft fabrics for a more feminine look, knits for an Autumnal vibe, or go all out with zips and ponyskin for a rock chick vibe!

THE DRESS

Everyone needs a LBD, and this Autumn I’ll totally be rocking this {faux} leather number from Warehouse.  It’s my birthday in a few weeks time and I think this would be perfect for a night out in London teamed with a killer pair of heels and sparkly statement necklace? BUY HERE

THE LEGGINGS

A little leather goes a long way with these leggings from DKNY.  For those not quite brave enough to rock the full leather trouser look, like me, these are a great compromise. BUY HERE

THE SKIRT

A good leather skirt is totally versatile.  Pair this mini from French Connection with a cute knit, tights and flats for an everyday look, or add an embellished collar shirt for work days.  BUY HERE

THE GLOVES

I know, I know, it’s not winter yet.  But there’s nothing like being prepared and I have a feeling French Connection’s ponyskin & leather gloves are going to sell out real quick.  Get them while you can! BUY HERE

THE JACKET

I have just purchased this leather jacket from Mango and I am smitten.  It’s just right for throwing over just about anything from evening dress to jeans and tee, the collarless look keeps it smart, while the zips add a touch of biker chic. Love. BUY HERE

THE WATCH

I am so in the market for a new watch, and I’ve had my eye on this leather-strapped beauty from Marc by Marc Jacobs for a while. It’s simple, sleek and sophisicated style would go with just about everything.  BUY NOW

THE BAG

New season, new bag. It’s the rules, right girls?  Ted Baker have got it spot on with this ponyskin / leather beaut! BUY NOW

THE GLASSES

I know what your thinking. Sunglasses and gloves in the same post? But they’re so cool I just couldn’t resist these leather-trimmed sunglasses by Tom Ford. And we can always hope for an Indian Summer, right?! BUY NOW

THE SHOES

Be. Still. My. Beating. Heart. I have a MAJOR crush on these Valentino lovelies. They’ve been rocked by all the trendiest brides this season, but they’re totally suitable for everyday wear. Loving the straps, loving the studs, loving the chic-yet-tough look.  I’m saving my pennies for these! BUY NOW

Louise

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
