I’ve missed posting my ‘Miranda Loves‘ posts regularly, as I do find it’s a great way to share some of my favourite finds, so I’ve decided to post a ‘Miranda Loves‘ feature on Wednesdays. Today, I’ve gathered a selection of Fall Fashion Essentials. A new season often inspires me to sort through my wardrobe and add a few items I feel are missing, or that will revitalise old favourites.
1/ With the return of back to work (and back to school), this Coast blouse is a great item to add to your professional wardrobe. A smart white blouse is always classic, and I like the pretty details of the long cuffs and ruffled neckline. It’s just the sort of top I would wear – paired with smart trousers – for Parents’ Evening at my school.
2/ For me, autumn marks the return of theatre season, and I’m always eager to find out the new ballet programme at the Royal Opera House. This Kate Spade bag would be such a delightful addition to my theatre-going outfit (I also love this one).
3/ As you know, I swear by a solid-coloured lace dress as a standby for formal occasions, and this Ted Baker dress exactly fits the bill. The colour is beautiful for Fall, and it would look lovely paired with a black blazer and high-heeled ankle boots.
4/ This shimmery green Chanel nail polish makes an interesting change from the usual berry tones and metallics that I pull out in the colder months.
5/ I received the new Zadig & Voltaire ‘This is Her’ perfume when I went to its launch party, and I’ve worn it so many times since (and am complimented on it whenever I do!). It has a lovely mix of jasmine and pink peppercorn to give it a fresh, floral scent, but the added notes of chestnut and vanilla give this fragrance a richness and depth that makes it the perfect choice for autumn. I always find it fun to change up my perfume with a new season, and This is Her has definitely become my go-to choice for autumn (alongside my old favourite, L’Air de Rien).
6/ I’ve written before about how much I dislike dressing up for Halloween, so to my eyes, this adorable hoodie makes the perfect, low-key outfit (and who’s to say you should only wear it for Halloween?!).
7/ Unfailingly, a chic beret is a must-have accessory for autumn, and Agnes B does the classics so well, with an added touch of Parisian je ne sais quoi.
8/ I wore my old boots to death last winter, and I now have my eye on these very reasonable over-the-knee boots. I think these would look great paired with a knit dress, and I like the chunkiness of their heels, which I always find a lot more comfortable than stilettos!
9/ I’ve fallen head-over-heels for these blackberry earrings (the simple studs are great too). Les Nereides is Parisian jewellery company that I just discovered recently (they have a charming shop in Covent Garden), and I adore everything they do!
10/ Leopard seems to be the pattern this fall, and rather than going for a full blown leopard print dress, I like the idea of adding subtle touches of the print to my outfit. These loafers look so stylish and are also great to pop into your handbag to change into when your heels are killing you. Apparently, Butterfly Twist shoes have thin, flexible soles that allow you to fold up the shoes, making them easily portable.
