Casual Autumn outfit - Guest Post from Sweetheart Fashion

 
Hey lovelies!
 I’m Sweetheart Fashion from the fashion and style blog, Sweetheart Fashion Blog on www.sweetheartfashion.com. I’ve teamed up with A Fashion Oddity to create a causal autumn outfit collaboration which has turned into a very exciting style challenge for me.
 
Sunglasses – Gucci
Shirt – DrDenim
Cami – Marks and Spencer
Leggings – New Look
Shoes – TOMS
I love to dress up, wearing pretty lace clothes, monochrome shades and high heels, as you may have noticed from my outfit of the day posts. But my boyfriend keeps nagging me to stop overdressing and just wear casual things from time to time, I am still a university student after all where the norm is tracksuits and hoodies…that is if you’ve managed to stave off a hangover and change from your pjs.
So when asked to collaborate with the wonderful Charlotte for a causal autumn outfit, I thought now would be a great time to push myself out of my comfort zone and try something new.
Taking inspiration from Topshop
I put together a causal outfit for a very busy Monday.
 
Sunglasses – Gucci
Shirt – DrDenim
Cami – Marks and Spencer
Leggings – New Look
I wore my boyfriend’s DrDenim plaid shirt for an oversize casual feel and had it unbuttoned, showing just a plain cami underneath. This is my favourite of his shirts; he used to wear it often when I fell for him three years ago now so it’s filled with a lot of love; and the shirt itself is great being thick and soft, so it’s really comfy.

Unfortunately I don’t have any ripped black jeans just yet so instead I went for these simple black leggings. I haven’t worn leggings in years and had totally forgotten just how comfy they are. It was nice wearing something so flexible and thankfully these weren’t see-through either.

I completed the look by wearing my new TOMS. After buying the cute crochet ones for my cruise this summer (see HERE) and discovering just how comfy they are, I bought some of these navy blue ones to wear over autumn. I really love wearing them!

I also went for extra-large bed-head with my natural curls and minimal, natural looking make-up. Overall, I was actually really surprised just how great I felt all day. It is worth dressing down from time to time whilst still looking on-trend and comfortable. I really enjoyed the experience and will definitely be experimenting with it more over the autumn.
What’s your favourite go-to casual outfit this autumn?
