(As a bonus, here is a horse that I saw while taking these photos! Cute!)

Top: Zara
Jeans: Topshop
Shoes: New Look
Necklace: Topshop

I'm sure everyone has noticed by now that burgundy has been the biggest colour trend of the season. I love it because it is rich but dark - it is a statement but not overpowering. I also think it's perfect for autumn and winter because it's evocative of seasonal things like autumn leaves and wine! I didn't want to jump right in there and buy the first burgundy thing I found, because I often find that when I buy trend based items I only end up wanting to wear it for a few weeks and then loosing interest. So I had to find the perfect piece, and this Zara t-shirt was the one! The fact that it is a jersey t-shirt means that it can look very casual, but the leather-look sleeves, drop back, and side splits mean that it can also be dressed up for more of an evening look (like I'm wearing it here). This transitional quality is one of the most important factors for me when buying clothes, so I'm very happy!

These New Look shoes were a recent purchase that I got on a really good offer. I love how the shape is very simple, but they have tiny spots of glitter on them! They go perfectly with the feel of the top.
