My first buy of the season was this Navy Blue Lace Peplum Top from Topshop. I think of this colour as Midnight Blue and it's a good alternative to black. The peplum was an important new feature in the Spring/Summer collections but seems to have become even more popular this Autumn. Lace, always a favourite of mine, fits the opulent mood of the season.
A peplum top needs to be teamed with a very slim piece, either a pencil skirt or skinny trousers. These Blue-Black Denim Jeggings from Calzedonia team perfectly with the top, both in colour and shape. They have a waistband with belt loops and jeans-style pocket details at front and back.
I will keep accessories simple - just a little pair of earrings with a touch of the baroque about them and slim dark court shoes or boots.
Today is the 87th birthday of B. B. King, the legendary vocalist and guitarist, often called the King of the Blues. You can hear him singing "Blues at Midnight", a track from his vintage album, "Mr Blues" on YouTube. (www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSOud8cxzaM).
