With summer well and truly behind us and those cold months fast creeping in it’s time to put away our summer clothes and dig out the cosy knits and ankle boots. If you’re anything like me you’ll mark this change in season declaring that you have absolutely nothing to wear and wonder what on earth you wore this time last year!
I don’t like to buy lots of clothes or hoard loads that I rarely wear, instead I try and have some kind of semblance of a capsule wardrobe… though it’s not as minimal as I’d wish it to be. I’m not self disciplined enough for that yet! I like to have a mix of clothes that are ‘fast fashion’ items that are cheaper, on trend and not likely to go beyond the current season and more expensive staple items that I will keep digging out of my wardrobe year after year.
When the lovely folk at LOTD, an online clothing retailer, got in touch to see if I’d try out their clothing I thought it would be a good chance to give my Autumn Winter wardrobe a little style injection.
As an online store I would say that price wise, LOTD, (Look Of The Day), sits around the same bracket as places like New Look and even Primark. It’s for the ‘on trend’ items that give your look an update and mean that you can have stylish clothes for the every day.
I love the embroidered detail on patches, it gives a bit extra to the staple plain white tee. The same with the printed tee below. I can’t see my love for the slogan tee slowing down anytime soon!
The ‘leather style’ skirt is one I haven’t braved before, but with an affordable price it’s worth the experiment. I don’t think it will be an item I reach for every day (!!) but it’s good for mixing things up and helping me step out of my denim comfort zone.
This jumper has to be my favourite from this selection of clothes. I have worn it so much this past month. I’ve worn it with jeans and skirts and just keep going back to it.
Another favourite has to be these ankle boots. I love the detail and the buckles and it gives a little something extra to a plainer outfit.
This is a colour I wouldn’t normally gravitate to, you know me and my love of black! Yet I wanted to try out the different neckline and ruffles. It’s such a cute top and one I need to be brave with and wear more.
SHOP THE LOOKS….
White floral embroidered tee (I’m wearing S) | GRL PWR tee (I’m wearing S) | Black Midi Skirt (I’m wearing M) / Black three gauge jumper (I’m wearing M) | Black studded boots (I’m a size 6) | Stone Turtle Neck top (I’m wearing 10)
I deliberately didn’t choose any trousers or jumpsuits as I’m only 5ft 3 and have to shop in Petite sections for those. Over all I would say that LOTD is great if you’re looking for a little style injection, to update your wardrobe with on trend everyday wear that is affordable. I’ve had these items for over a month and they’re all washed and worn really well.
Disclosure – I was sent these items from LOTD for this feature
