Monday Musings

Pinch Punch and all that jazz, what a beautiful Monday morning the 1st October has bought us.  I was fully wrapped up on this morning’s school run in jeans, trainers, a roll neck and big coat, surprising myself with how quickly you can shrug off summer and fully embrace autumn!

I was recently helping a friend with the finishing touches to an outfit she was wearing to a wedding last weekend.  She is currently 5 months pregnant and not feeling the most attractive so wasn’t looking forward to the idea of getting dressed up, or spending a fortune on a new dress to accommodate her growing tummy.  After managing to borrow a LBD from a friend who had recently had a baby herself, I told her the quickest and easiest way to update any outfit (bump or no bump) is with accessories, and the AW18 catwalks were awash with supersized, shoulder grazing, eye dazzling earrings.

Door knockers, extra huge hoops, shoulder skimming chandeliers, gothic jewelled crosses and mismatched pairs were just a few of the many styles the catwalks were favouring.  It’s go big (and we’re talking BIG) or go home this season with it comes to ear candy.  Thankfully our fabulous high street has taken note and whether you wear pierced or clip ons there are some incredible offerings for your ears.  H&M have a great clip on pair that are also interchangeable in length, a gorgeous jewelled cross pair from Liars and Lovers @ ASOS could’ve easily been in the Dolce & Gabbana show and Starivarius have hoops and pearls that give cool girl Chanel vibes for under £10.

So enough with my ramblings, have a look at the goodies all linked below.
