Heritage inspired...

This weekend I went to London for my baby cousin's christening and looking back at the photos of my outfit, it is very 'heritage inspired', something the magazines keep marking out as a 'key trend' for this A/W, and a trend I would happily buy into with it's rich colours and gorgeous textures...

Dress: Next via charity shop, tweed blazer: M&S via charity shop, fur stole: H&M, necklace: Accessorize, pewter bag: Star by Julien Macdonald via Mum, pewter shoes: Oasis via Mum

I chose this dress as the length ensured it was church (and family appropriate) as well as being ridiculously comfortable! I don't have many dresses that are both dressy and long so this one tends to get wheeled out whenever I need something that looks more dressed up than one of my usual floral dresses... 


Please excuse the silly pose, I was trying to get my bag and shoes into the same shot because I thought my brother was zoomed in... unfortunately he wasn't and I just look like a fool...


This, for me, is what Autumn is all about, luxe colours and a multitude of textures. This faux fur collar has to be one of my favourite things to wear at the moment. I kept my eye out for a vintage one but after stroking this silky soft one in H&M the other week, I was sold! Keep your eyes peeled for more outfit posts with it in, coming your way very soon... 


A picture of the bag in slightly more detail. Please excuse my huge man hands! I love this bag and despite it being extremely small, it was perfect for carrying the essentials and matched perfectly with the shoes... I love it when an outfit comes together! 

What would you wear to a christening? Do you like the heritage trend?

Oh Maria this is gorgeous! I especially love how you've dressed the dress down with the blazer but still kept it glamorous with the fur collar.
