Since taking the rather large step to introduce more fashion onto Anoushka Loves, I have become a woman obsessed. I’ve always taken a keen interest in fashion and prefer to pick up key pieces to introduce into my rather neutral based wardrobe, with classic shapes and basics that will last for seasons. As fashion changes so quickly, it’s sometimes hard to keep up with trends, so being selective with fashion does have it’s advantages. I’m more of a seasonal shopper, and tend to choose things ready for the weather changes, although I have to take into consideration that I may need floaty beach kaftans in December for work, and a thick winter coat for when I land home. Lately, I’ve started to update my shoe wardrobe, and selecting pieces that will take me from this late Indian Summer that we are expecting, into Autumn and the early stages of winter. Keeping fast fashion in mind, the Anushka knitted boot from Ego Official was chosen not just for the name, but for their ease of transitioning throughout the seasons.
With the weather being a rather tropical 20 degrees recently and expected to hit the mid twenties (we are so lucky), it’s been quite nice to wear outfits without having to think about the need for an umbrella. A classic black jersey midi dress was my choice of the day. Not too tight fitting, with room to move around, and although plain and simple in style, it can be dressed up or down. Teaming the dress with my favourite denim jacket, which I’ve had for an age, I feel smart yet not over dressed and prepared for the British weather.
Keeping my jewellery simple, I’ve worn a DanFrank Jewellery original beaded necklace with tassel detail and a ChloBo Hamsa Hand Rose Gold Bracelet. The Hamsa Hand is a protective sign and symbolises happiness, luck, health and happiness. I’ll be wearing this every day as it’s just what I need right now. As this is my first ChloBo bracelet, I am really looking forward to adding to my collection and wearing these as stackable bracelets, with each charm representing something important in my life.
Onto the boots. Oh, I adore these boots so much. Knitted, beige and with a high heel, they aren’t for someone who shies away from wearing heels. The Ego Official Anushka Knitted Boot is gorgeous and versatile. The heel is around 5 inches, and with no platform on the shoe, I was expecting some discomfort when walking, yet there was none. As the material of the boot sits snugly around the foot, it holds the foot in place with no sliding around inside the shoe. They’re actually one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes, aside from my slippers, that I’ve owned. The mid calf length did give me cause for concern with my muscular calves causing issues when it comes to boots, but I had no need to worry. With the colour and the shape of the boot, I found them to be really flattering on my leg, as well as making my legs look even longer. Although I’ve worn them with a midi dress to show them off today, they also look great with leggings and an oversized t.shirt, as well as an ultra glam LBD.
I’m really looking forward to bringing my wardrobe into the Autumn season. What key pieces will you be looking for to update your wardrobe?
