Tesco F&F Autumn Collection Wishlist 2016

F&F Autumn Wishlist

The Autumn collection for F&F at Tesco is just gorgeous and really reasonable prices. I bet these will be sold out ASAP in my size but even so I am hot footing it there to get some of these pieces I have selected for my Autumn wishlist. 

Outfit 1:
Dress £25
Coat £45
I love this dress which is gorgeous for work and evening. The oversized coat looks really snug and the pattern looks like it could be Burberry or Pringle design. 

Outfit 2:
Dress £25
Coat £45
I can only get one coat so it will be hard picking between the tartan one and this beautiful navy military one. The finish with the buttons, pockets and cut are parallel with designer ones I have seen. The dress underneath again is a lovely Victorian style one with a lovely plum red colour. 

Outfit 3:
Shirt £16
Trousers £16
A great outfit for plus size this is very flattering and I have been looking for these trousers everywhere for ages. The shirt would look great with jeans too. 

Outfit 4:
Jacket £30 
Top £12
Trousers £18
Shoes £12 
A great little work outfit. This jacket has embroidery just like the catwalks and the 
shoes look super comfy. 

Outfit 5:
Dress £30
Such a pretty knee length dress. Looks like a Laura Ashley or Monsoon number so for £30 it is an excellent buy. Love the plum colours and smart neck tie. 
I must have this plum bowling bag to go with these outfits! 
I Love how you can just zip everything up and travel with it. Looks a lot more than £18!

Shoes Mary Janes
These are a great Autumn staple to any outfit. I love the high shine and deep plum colour. 

All available at F&F Tesco this Autumn in stores or online:

Banana Republic names Olivia Palermo as Global Style Ambassador

Banana Republic has appointed international style icon Olivia Palermo as the brand’s first women’s Global Style Ambassador.  I love Olivia's understated classic style and she seems to look everything look amazing. Banana Republic is a great shop for all things basic as you can team the clothing up with anything and the styles never seem to go out of fashion. 

The partnership sees Olivia integrated throughout Banana Republic’s global marketing, starting in fall 2016 and will extend through 2017. Shot by Inez and Vinoodh and styled by Edward Enninful, Olivia brings a fresh perspective to the versatile lifestyle brand focused on contemporary classics. 

Olivia will personally curate a selection of more than a dozen limited-edition direct-to-consumer women’s styles that will be available for immediate purchase live from Banana Republic’s Spring 2017 New York Fashion Week presentation on September 10. 

The exclusive, early-release capsule will be sold on bananarepublic.com and at the brand’s Flatiron location in New York.I haven't got prices yet as these items are still to be released but here is a sneak peak at the Olivia collection. The english website is http://bananarepublic.gap.co.uk

The brand goes from a size 4 to an 18. It's a shame they do not have a plus section and go bigger but as they are an America brand their clothes are quite generous. I look forward to seeing this collection out soon. Great for work and a smart weekend away.

Monsoon Autumn Collection Wishlist Haul

Monsoon is one of my favourite shops because they combine beautiful textures with the most blendable colours. Every season they have a great pattern and colour mix and I love this soft plum and pretty print design they have for this Autumn 2016. 

1. Plum Luxe Dress and Bag

The plum colours in this dress really blend well so it is not a garish design. You could definitely wear this dress for work and then wear at the weekend for a dinner. I just love the accent of the dark plum bag too. Perfect for your brolly and a change of shoes. 
Florence Dress £89
Pandora Structured Saddle X Body Bag £29 

2. Cute Scarf and Textures 

I love this Harry Potter Mix Up Prep styling of the teddy coat, print skirt and cute blouse and how adorable is this scarf? The mix of textures really work because the colours are quite muted with he dash of plum. 
Teddy Borg Coat £129
Fern Long Scarf £15
Lace Frill Top £59
Embellished Skirt £109 

3. Dainty Dress and Plum Fur 

This dress is so elegant and perfect for Autumn evenings to the theatre or again you could probably wear this to work with some gorgeous chelsea boots. The plum fur stole is very luxe looking and the basic neutrals of the dress let you wear it without looking eccentric. 
Print Dress £89
Fur Scarf £32

4. Beautiful Checked Oversized Coat 

Look how snug this coat looks. I love the pastel greys which blend well with purple hues and will go with any outfit. I could imagine wearing this coat with a lovely pair of plain blue jeans and a polo neck and some lovely boots. 
Coat £199 

I hope you enjoy my Autumn Monsoon sneak peak x
