Autumn is my favourite time of year. I love the cold air with the warm sunshine, I love the colours of the leaves and nature, and I love the fashion. Layering always makes me feel like an outfit is just that bit more put together, that bit more chic. And when I saw this Navabi Manon Baptiste Colour Block Cardigan* I was in love.
It is absolutely perfect autumn colours, with shades of rusty oranges and grey, and the long line style is perfect for those colder days and nights. When this arrived and I opened up the packaging, one touch of this cardigan made it obvious that it was a sublime quality. The material is so soft and beautiful, and it is the sort of fabric that does not crease, which is perfect for a lazy girl like me!
I paired the cardigan with a cold shoulder dress from New Look, fun mesh leggings from ASOS, platform boots from Yours Clothing and necklace from Bloody Mary Metal. The oranges and grey of the cardigan with the red of the dress aren't a combination I would usually go for, but I think all the tones really worked together. I look like a chic pumpkin!
The leggings are really fun, a mixture of jersey and mesh that shows my leg tattoos off even in the cold. I always end up wearing leggings a lot in autumn and winter, and styles like this are just a bit more interesting. I always size down in ASOS leggings, and with these I could have probably sized down a second time as they do stretch a good deal as you wear them. My boots are from last year, Yours are one of the few places to sell up to a 10EEE which is the size I need, so I tend to leap at the chance to have cute heels. These are adorable, but not suitable for a lot of walking. After we shot these photos we walked all over Cheltenham visiting my parents, and my poor beans suffered badly for my footwear choice!
You guys know Stevie Nicks is one of my style icons, so I had to do my best Stevie Nicks pose to really show off the oversized style of this cardigan. It is one of the nicest things I have ever owned, and the quality of it is just wow. It is the ultimate in comfy chic.
I felt so cool in this outfit, but so cosy too. All the stripes and colour blocks make simple oversized lines really interesting and add so much to the outfit.
This cardigan also comes in a blue/grey/mustard combo that is beautiful too, and I really want that to wrap myself up in too! I love the length and style of this cardigan, I'm 5ft 11 and it hits to just below my knees which is awesome, and so unusual! It would be more of a true midi-style on someone of a more average height.
Navabi are the ultimate in dreamy high end plus size fashion, and I love that I can collaborate with them and share their designer pieces with you guys. That I can share both the cheapest of budget pieces, and then a truly delightful designer piece is so amazing to me!
Now, something different. Some of these blog photos are not like the others, there's a little something hidden in them. Comment if you find it!
