Spotted: Atterley Road

Recently, I’ve been looking towards a more grown up, streamlined and simplistic style for my Autumn/Winter outfits. I don’t know what has prompted the changed, but  I feel more like inventing my own take on the trends than slavishly following them. Maybe it’s the advent of the cooler months resurecting my favourite styles and colours that makes me veer towards my signature style, but viewing a lot of the high street collections just hasn’t been doing it for me like it did early in the year as the spring summer collections flooded in. I’ve been looking for less pieces of higher quality and with serious wardrobe miles in them. Enter Atterley Road.

Have you seeen the adverts for Atterley Road, ALL over the internet recently? It was through one of those ads that I clicked through to the site and found a really great concept – designed to feel like shopping on your favourite high street (a London-ism for sure,) but online, there’s an edited selection of pieces – ‘the best of brands you know and love – with new labels you’ll grow to love.’ Snappy style guides are regularly produced addressing fashion trends people like you or I need – a collection of knits for the wintery weather, your work wear wardrobe sorted or a capsule collection of key pieces every girl needs. And I think the selection is impeccable.

You’ll find my favourites like Whistles, NW3 by Hobbs and Hunter, and cooler labels like IRO, Ash and Des Petites Hauts. As I was doing a bit of window shopping I thought I would put a couple of outfits together to solve some of my own dilemma’s right now and demonstrate the breadth and quality available.


Top and Belt, Des Petits Hauts // Jeans, 7 for all Mankind // Earrings, Made // Satchel, Jiqsaw // Ballet flats, French Sole

There isn’t a huge selection, but that’s because they have done the legwork for you. Need a work skirt? Find the perfect pencil style easily. Statement dress or weekend, reassuringly, dresses are the largest section and there’s all the finishing touches too, including jewellery, bags and shoes. 🙂

I can see I’m going to be spending a lot of time on the Atterley Roadsite and quite possibly a lot of money! Have you heard of Atterley Road and do you like my outfit choices?

What to Wear: Colour block trousers

I’m really excited to share today’s outfit – when the weather turned colder last weekend I needed to bring my winter coat out of hibernation but after submerging myself in spring/summer trends I was craving colour, not wintery darker shades. the Reiss trousers throughout this post were a sale purchase – I always try to shop smart in the sales and I had an inkling these would work right through to the summer ahead. I’ve been desperate to get them out since, so decided they could work with my winter coat.

I actually bought this pale swing coat from Reiss in the sale last year but haven’t worn it much for fear of getting it dirty – I’m finally feeling less precious/more sensible about it now! It’s very warm and I love the swing shape to it. Although admittedly better with heels, I wore this shopping and needed flats for walking.


Coat: Reiss

Reason number 2 for loving this outfit? This lipstick. Can we all just take a moment to enjoy its fiery red colour? I’ve been fancying myself an orange toned red (New Years resolution #2 – Experiment more with lipstick) for a while now. I bought this only the day before with the trousers in mind and it is fabulous – it stays on all day too without drying my lips out which is a major feat in my book.


Lipstick: MAC Matte lipstick in ‘Lady Danger’, Earrings: Monica Vinader at Astley Clarke

The ankle length trousers felt quite chic and I couldn’t imagine them with heavy winter shoes so opted for last summers nude ballet flats from Dune.


Leopard spot belt: Banana Republic, Red Trousers: Reiss, Jumper: Warehouse, Ballet Flats: Dune.

I’m seeing a lot of chunky knits paired with more tailored bottom halves this season, like pencil skirts, so I thought the slim tapered trousers would work well with a Warehouse jumper that I love the shape of and lends the wintery edge to the pants.


Bracelet: Odille, Smokey Quartz Cocktail ring from Santorini

I should give a shout out here to Michelle from Pocketful of Dreams. I have her to thank for introducing me to coloured trousers – when she wore a blue pair to my house last season and prompted me to buy some similar jeans. I’m often inspired by women’s style that I see around me so I hope you guys reading gain some inspiration from my outfit posts too.

Let me know if you liked it as always 🙂

Love,
