How to Wear: September

What a glorious month September has been. Not only has the sun shone, we had a lovely family holiday in Cornwall as a foursome and it’s now the start of my favourite season of all, the Autumn.

The sunny weather has meant that sandals and espedrilles are still featuring in my shoe repertoire, even if worn with chunky knits and jackets – the perfect warm-ish Autumn attire!

Sandals and Espadrilles – Topshop; Jeans – J Crew; Jumper – J Crew; Culottes – Warehouse

My trusty kicks have also had several airings. I know they are essentially both white trainers, and both Adidas, but they make outfits look and feel very different, depending on which style I wear.

We had a STUNNING week in Cornwall and we really lucked in with the weather. On the day we went to St Ives, the beach could have been found somewhere in the Caribbean (this is Carbis Bay for those who don’t know the area). Heaven.


The great weather meant that shorts were on the cards although starts to the day were still chilly. It was a great week and both boys, especially the biggest, loved it. We definitely have a beach lover on our hands 😉

The rest of the month has consisted of wearing the Coatigan I have mentioned before (I love how it goes with my woven wrap for Oscar, perhaps not deliberate…) and also getting dressed up for two Christenings on the same Sunday. The dress was really easy to feed Oscar in too.  Dress – Phase Eight; Shoes – LK Bennett

Finally I got to dress up again on Monday night this week for a work awards do. It felt liberating going out with only a small bag – my first evening away from No.2 since he was born.

Skirt –  c/o LK Bennett; Vest – Mango; Jacket – H&M (Sold Out)

I’ll be back next week with October’s “What to Buy” – coats will feature… 😉

PS: I was very excited about the Boden Icons launch that happened this month too and ordered a couple of pieces from the collection, but unfortunately, they’ve gone back.

It’s nothing to do with the quality or fit, they are so well made with quality fabrics. It’s just I don’t think I’m quite ready to “fight for this love”…! (Although if the Mini version of the Brigadier skirt ever went into the sale, I may be tempted to order again…)

  1. I’m with you on the Boden Icons stuff – it’s definitely a bit too Cheryl for me! Loved one of the coats though, although I’m not in the market for a winter coat this year so have refrained from purchasing.

  2. I need to go check out the icons range – loving your Cheryl reference Erin! Sounds perhaps like it might be a bit too trendy to be something that could be worn for a few seasons.

    Loving your style this month – I bought a bode Coat but returned it as the shape was most definitely not me, and am now thinking i should have bought the coatigan you have… (I also bought a more classic grey coatigan… but am returning it as they just seem to drown me a bit in a not very flattering way.) Loving your ‘dressed up outfits too. I’m struggling to finish the ‘dressed up’ hole in my capsule right now, it’s been gaping for the last couple of seasons while i haven’t gone out as much while bea was little but I need something to fill it now I’m out more, yet still work within the ‘capsule’ so one a one off (or three) wear, IYKWIM!

    Can’t wait to see Octobers picks 🙂

  3. Thanks Erin, you’ve given me an idea for a wedding outfit. I was wondering what I was going to wear for a November wedding we have coming up. I’ll be breastfeeding also and haven’t got the time or inclination to trawl the shops. Just checked the Phase Eight website too and it’s reduced to £20 – bonus! Definitely going to give it a try x

    • Thank you Bethan 🙂 Also give code GHAW15 a try on the Phase Eight site. Should give you an extra 20% off – makes the dress a real bargain. You won’t regret the purchase. It’s so comfortable! X
