Creating My Autumn Inspired Outfits


Jeans | Top | Bag | Shoes

As most of you know, Autumn is my favourite time of the year. I just adore being able to wear burgundy (which is of course my favourite) and mixing it with leopard print, black and navy! I also love the fact that I get to layer on blazers, leather jackets and coats, lots of scarves, wear amazing boots and of course, my ever faithful wellies! Not only do I love the Autumn fashion and buying a new wardrobe, I am obsessive over the scenery too! The beautiful and rich orange, yellow and red hues that appear on the trees, as well as the ground, it just makes the perfect setting for my photos as well as creates some stunning photography (which is a new series I will be adding to my blog soon, stay tuned).

I’ve teamed up with Great Plains, which is French Connection’s sister site, to bring you this post! I’m super excited about it as I adore both brands, they have some fantastic dresses for women, evening tops and of course, what would I be doing without mentioning the fact that they also have jeans for women, one of my every day essentials! For this collaboration, I have gone through the site and chosen some pieces which I love and would wear, as well as mixed it up with a few accessories from other brands, to create three different Autumn inspired outfits, which are of course in my own style. The three looks that I put together each replicate an outfit that I have posted here on Raindrops of Sapphire before, or they combine a few of my looks into one! Either way, each of these ensembles that I put together definitely represent me and my personality. Which one do you like the most?


Jeans | Shirt | Coat | Boots | Necklace | Belt | Watch


Jeans | Jacket | Cardigan | Wellies | Umbrella | Scarf | Top

And here are some of my outfits below that inspired me to create these looks with Great Plains. As you can tell, I seem to adore black skinny jeans in the Autumn, they just seem to pair well with everything! Of course you can tell that I love leopard print too, like I mentioned, as well as my biggest love, burgundy. There’s definitely a theme going on!

    Oh how exciting to work with such a great brand. I had no idea French Connection had a sister brand. I love how you styled your looks. Cute blog too, following via Bloglovin.

      Thank you so much! And I know, they have more mature and classic pieces, but still gorgeous!

    Yep you definitely described half of the reason why I love fall fashion. Burgundy with leopard print and black. It’s a pretty fantastic combination! So many great fall looks here. I’m glad to see another blogger who rocks plenty of leopard print!

    Autumn is a beautiful season. Everybody loves it. I really like the way you have used the theme of autumn. The colors really suit each other. I loved each and every outfit you have shared with us. I just realised that I don’t have a biker jacket πŸ™‚
