Do you ever fall in to the trap of shopping in the same place season upon season? I do, and to be honest I will often feel despondent like they don’t have what i’m looking for, or they’re to expensive or its just all really samey.
Simply Be got in touch last week and asked if i would like to take a look through their new Autumn collection to see if there was anything that caught my eye.
Being a shop that I haven’t previously shopped with I was a little unsure as to if I would find anything that was very me.
Well how wrong was I?
The answer is VERY.. very very wrong.
Simply Be is a brand that is known for offering a fantastic range of sizes (12 through to 32), but what I discovered is that some of the pieces start at a size 10, plus the accessories are on trend, reasonably priced and just really gorgeous! I was literally spoiled for choice
Everything above is Simply Be. Everything would work perfectly within an A/W capsule.
Let me walk you through my favourite, essential pieces for Autumn/Winter
The boot section offer a range of widths on many of the styles. I have the leopard print in my virtual cart, as I kid you not, I have been looking for a pair EXACTLY like this all week (I’ve been on a leopard print boot hunt, which to now was turning out to be severely unsuccessful!) I could not believe my luck when i found these in the Ladies Boots section. With tights and socks (how i roll in winter) these could make the perfect addition to my capsule this winter.
After my success in the boot department I headed on over to the Accessories.
Autumn top priority for me is a bobble hat. I live in mine from autumn through to Spring. School run saviour (no need to do ones hair), dog walking and just sometimes outfit finisher’ cos they’re just damn cute. A hat is an essential for me and the bobble hats or pom pom hats are my top picks. Wear with a biker jacket, or a snuggly hoodie and you will look pretty and be super lovely and warm.
Secondly, BAGS. Oh how i love a nice bag. This embroidered bag is just sublime. Pretty and boho yet the monochrome keeps it modern. LOVE.
These two would pretty much sit perfectly in my capsule.
Come autumn a checked shirt in a neutral colour way is my new favourite item. Wear causal with jeans, tucked in to a button down skirt or layered under a pinnafore style dress. Great remixable piece.
The paisley top has absolutely stolen my red loving heart. Not only is it my favourite colour but the detailing is just perfect. Paisley is my groove, I love how it never goes out of style and can be worn all year round. This pretty number would look so good with some faux leather trousers or some ripped jeans.
Military is big this season, with embellishment and buttoning. I love this sleek black coat, which is perfect for all occasions and has the little nod to the style with its button detail.
From the in-style to the quite simply sublime. This loop yarn jacket is unbelievably cool. Slightly yetti-ish, but that just makes me love it all the more. Again this would look so so good with some faux leather trousers and a black jumper and some burgundy pointed boots for a bit of a rock chic, edgy cool vibe. Also, it looks ridiculously warm, like hibernate for the winter in it, warm; I’m Sold!
These are all items I would gladly have in my capsule and know that they would be remixed and re-worn over and over again.
It goes to show, stepping out of your shopping comfort zone is definitely worth doing when there are great items like this to be found.
