Outfit post || Autumn palette with New Look*

Hiya loves!

Recently the lovely people at New Look got in touch to tell me about their new Autumn Palette (which I absolutely love the colours of) and offered me a couple of items to try out. As I was saying last week, I'm really into wearing the colours of autumn this year - the various shades of greens, mustard, berry shades, brown, etc. All the colours of fallen leaves and the berries which are abundant right now.

With that in mind I picked a lovely green floral dress and a deep purple cardigan to contrast with it.

The dress is one I've had on my wishlist for a while. The dark green and florals are lovely and very season appropriate. The lace section at the chest is a really pretty touch, and it's high enough up not to flash off my bra. It's made of polyester and is the floaty, lightweight material which a lot of New Look Inspire dresses are made of. I like it because the material doesn't stick to me if I get hot. I prefer a lighter dress so I can layer up with cardigans, coats and scarves in the colder weather which can be taken off when I start to warm up. I'm wearing a size 28 which is more than sufficient. I could probably wear a size 26 in many New Look elasticated waist styles but I err on the side of comfort and prefer items to be slightly too big.

The cardigan! Oh my lord this cardigan is like wearing a hug. I sized up to a 32 as I wanted a really cocoony feel. It's so soft against my skin and has a lovely fleck to it. You can see it in the close up photo below - you can see darker and lighter fibres. It looks black from a distance, but as you get closer you can see the lovely rich aubergine colour. It comes below my bum and has two pockets at the front.
