Guest Post : Catherine of Not Dressed As Lamb

Biker jacket, purple skinnies & tan boots
Whilst i'm away on a family trip to wonderful (if not slightly wet & windy) Cornwall, i am handing the blog over to some amazing ladies/friends. To each i asked the same thing;


What is your go-to item this Autumn?
Today i present to you my long time blog buddy and constant source of inspiration
Catherine of Not Dressed As Lamb.


Hi, I'm Catherine of Not Dressed As Lamb (www.notdressedaslamb.com) and I'm guest posting for Rachel while she's away - for those of you that don't know me it's really nice to meet you! Like Rachel I'm from the UK (she's Welsh, I'm English) and we started our blogs at almost the same time - a couple of years ago now - and we've been blogging friends for most of that time. It goes without saying that we're huge fans of each other's style, and I was really flattered that she asked me to guest post! :) Biker jacket, polka dot blouse & galaxy scarf Biker jacket, polka dot blouse & purple skinnies
 When she said the theme was my go-to item, I knew it had to be my black leather biker jacket - a great jacket is an autumn essential in the UK. I bought this one last year after many years of searching for the right one, and it looks just as great with skinny jeans as it does with a floral dress. For a faux leather it's unbelievably soft and a pretty good alternative to real leather, which would have cost me a fortune. I was having a bit of a mauve moment that day (a shopping trip), and discovered a great new colour combination of black, purple and tan. I'm always up for a bit of pattern mixing, and the galaxy snood and black and white polka dot shirt look look perfect together

So that's my style in a nutshell - pretty colourful with an unexpected pattern mix for good measure and tons of accessories. If you pop over to my blog then please do leave a comment to say you found me via this guest post, it would be lovely to meet some new readers (or say hi on Twitter or Facebook)! Enjoy your Friday and have a fabulous weekend
