My Style: After Dark I Dress Like a Pumpkin

LK Bennett Rosamund Bag

I attended my first Halloween party of the year earlier in the week, which happened to fall on the same day as some important meetings. As I wouldn’t have time to change in-between the two, my outfit had to work for both occasions, which presented a challenge. Magazines are always showing us how to take our looks “from day to night” but there are never any “from business meeting to Halloween party” tutorials – so I on my own with this one!

Deciding to play it safe on the Halloween front, I stuck to a black and orange colour palette, layering a faux fur gilet over my favourite leather jacket. A witches hat and broom really would have completed the outfit, but to keep it W1-appropriate I opted for my studded MICHAEL Michael Kors ankle boots and the L.K. Bennett ‘Rosamund’ handbag instead…

Do you like my low-key attempt at Halloween dressing? Will you be adding pumpkin brights to your Autumn/Winter look in the run up to October 31st? Let me know…

    Thought I recognised that bag! Is three weeks off my birthday, do you think I can justify “breaking mine in” yet?! 🙂
