On moving to Dorset I hoped to end my obsession with buying clothes, imagining my country wardrobe of jeans, wellies, Barbour and even a dog to go with my new look! Instead I love fashion more than ever, wear heels most days and miss city shops despite loving life by the sea. Writing about my fashion finds will hopefully become a replacement for making so many unnecessary online purchases and my husband can finally work from home without being interrupted by the postman!

Join the Dots
Polka dots are a classic trend that work for all seasons and have the power to make any outfit look more playful and youthful, as well as being an easy pattern to wear. This autumn they look to be spot on again - here are some pictures from Pinterest for inspiration:
Mixing polka dots with fur and florals for an eclectic look:
A classic look with a splash of colour:
Spots work well for the monochrome trend:
And my current favourites from the high street, starting with this fabulous sweater from Karen Millen, featuring oversized spots:
I would like to get the Karen Millen sweater but I have banned myself from any more grey jumpers/sweaters/tops, even if they are slightly different in pattern/texture etc. But the good thing with this trend is that we all probably have something in our wardrobe already that we can wear this autumn. I wore my spotty cropped trousers on Sunday to my Mum's for lunch:
Cropped Trousers (GAP SS13)
Pink Knit Top (Zara SS14)
Silver Slingbacks (Next SS14)
Denim Jacket - Topshop (old)
So, will you be wearing spots this autumn? Do you already have spotty things in your wardrobe?
