Laura Ashley Boiled Wool Biker And Smart Cafe Trousers

Hello, Autumn! One thing I love about getting the Autumn/Winter wardrobe together is new clothes! A fresh start with a few new items. Browsing in the Laura Ashley store, I fell in love with this Boiled Wool Biker Jacket.

“It’s still sunny but damn cold, especially in the mornings!This Laura Ashley Biker Jacket is perfect”

The Biker Jacket trend isn’t going to go away now, is it? How much nicer to be cosy in wool rather than leather. The weather is still bright but it’s damn cold in the mornings! I fell in love with this jacket as soon as I saw it. Also available in Navy, Grey, and Green. I  love the Gunmetal detailing with the Gunmetal poppers and zips. This isn’t fitted like some Biker designs, it’s boxy and roomy enough for another sweater/roll neck underneath for when it’s really cold

Walking around the gardens in Syon Park, I can’t believe how quickly Autumn has arrived. All the greenery is starting to change to their rich winter tones. The Brown shades that I’m wearing today are one of my favourites from this year’s Autumn/Winter Pantone shades called Otter. If you haven’t chosen your favourite shades yet, take a look at them here  Otter will work with a lot of items that I already have.

Smart Cafe trousers perfect for work or play

The trousers caught my eye in the shop too, but the first site of them was in Navy here But I just fell in love with these brown shades. I’m wearing a light silk top under the jacket in a mushroom tone but other colors like Orange, Pink and Rust shades will work well. That’s what I like about neutral tones, you can literally add anything to them.

The quality of these trousers is evident as soon as you feel the material. Slim fitting and super smart with belt loops and side split at the bottom. These would be the perfect office trouser and I think they will work for play too. I’m going to dress them up with Gold heels and an embellished top for a night out. watch out for that post!

New Season = New Bag!

Laura Ashley Toggle Bag

“I am that woman who doesn’t have anywhere near enough bags!”

Well you have to update your bag collection, don’t you?!! I’m actually not lying about not having enough bags! I only have one other brown one, so this was a desperately needed update to my wardrobe! As soon as I clapped eye’s on this one it had to be mine! Laura Ashley has excelled this year in the accessories department. I want them all! And they are great value and not overly expensive either. An easy way to update your wardrobe. I love the added Gold detail on the flap and the toggle.

I’ve added this back view so that you can see how boxy the Biker Jacket is. Not fitted and not stiff like your average leather Biker. Just so much more comfortable!

Before I go, let me share this beautiful conservatory at the park

Syon Park Conservatory

It’s beautiful here and if your ever in the London area it’s worth a visit. The conservatory is stunning. As is the gardens and the stately home.

    That jacket is gorgeous, Laurie! I love that it’s a softer version of a biker jacket, and it goes so well with those trousers. You can’t go wrong with a pair os smart brown trousers either. I could do with a pair myself, actually!
    And what a setting – beautiful!

    You’re kitted out ready for autumn now, lucky you. Good choices. Lovely, and the taupey colour so suits you. And a fabulous backdrop. You never fail us with your pretty – on you, around you, and of course, pretty you! Hugs, x.

    Nice to retreat into Autumnal clothes and yours are perfect. Laura Ashley is a store I never look in, but I will be taking a peek when I next go into town. x Jacqui

    Oh dear, I love that jacket! And it looks so warn and cosy! Fantastic and the bag is wonderful too. I love bags in that design.

  24. September 25, 2017 / 5:49 pm

    I am a big fan of boiled wool, i have a few jackets in this material. Love the neutral and the moto shape! i also love rich browns for Fall, yet it is a color that seems to get left out of palettes! ( we will still wear it!) Your trousers are sharp with this look and i love the crossbody bag and shape. I would love a rich dark brown bag myself.
    lovely look Laurie!
    Have a great week!

    That jacket looks fab (and so very useful) as for that bag I have all the heart eyes!

    Boiled wool is such a funny term, makes me think of felt for some reason, but your jacket is a whole lot more appealing than a leather one. The bag is cute too.

  28. September 25, 2017 / 12:57 pm

    Laurie, Laurie, Laurie I must look into that bag in my local store. It is adorable. Can I get away with another one? Hmm I’ll count up my pennies. I bought a biker jacket in a warm material in H&M. Pleather is too thin to wear all year round. Mine isn’t wool of course. Your wool one looks a real treat and cosy.

  29. September 25, 2017 / 12:11 pm

    This bag looks so comfortable and handy. I have found various items at Laura Ashley store.
