Weekly Outfit – Chocolate & Blue

This week’s outfit features some new Autumn collection pieces in one of my favourite colour combinations of Chocolate and Duck Egg Blue.

I love brown as a neutral base for a capsule wardrobe but last Autumn there was very little around. I hunted for a pair of Chocolate brown ankle boots with no success. I’m excited to see that Hobbs are including brown for the coming season though and have already spotted a pair of boots to add to my Autumn wish list.

The skirt featured here is gorgeous – I drooled over it at the weekend when I spotted it in store. Teamed with a pair of suede shoes (which also come in brown) and a knit it makes an early Autumn outfit for cooler days. For the casual option I’ve chosen new in jeans from Boden and a great little pair of flats (very similar to these from Chloe but £250 cheaper!)
