I love the changing seasons and the new fashions that they bring.

In my last post I wrote about my essential black basic - black skinny jeans.  Here's the link if you would like to see it:


I've now been back to H&M to buy three little basic black tops:-

Black Fine Knit Cardigan from H&M Divided
Above: I love this cardigan with long sleeves, a v-neck and nice bone buttons down the front. Made in a soft, fine polyester/viscose knit,  it has a silky texture and is slightly transparent. The shape is unusual - dropped shoulders, quite full and flaring out prettily at the back.

Black Turtleneck Top from H&M Divided/Basics
Above: The short, fitted, turtleneck top with short sleeves is made in a soft cotton jersey.  I really like this worn under the cardigan.

Black Henley Style Top from H&M Divided/Basics
Above: A  ribbed cotton jersey top with long sleeves and a round Henley style neckline with a placket and press-studs.

I think these are good tops to mix and layer with other pieces in my wardrobe.

I often look at the accessories in Primark, especially the bags and when I saw this black mock croc mini bag with silver clasp, it seemed just right for my fashion mood this season.

The strap can be worn double as a short shoulder bag, or longer to wear cross-body.

What else do I want to wear this season? Little hairbands, pearl and gold earrings, gold chains, pearl and diamant√© jewellery, a faux fur or teddy bear jacket (preferably with a hood) a jumper in a colour other than black!  I'll wear these with my basic black pieces.  I'll be writing some more soon, so please stay posted! 

None of the items mentioned above were gifted.
