My picks from the River Island Autumn Collection

I've made no secret of what a high street hoarder I am. You'd probably guess from this blog and a certain recurring handbag and sandal combo that River Island is one of my favourite stores. Personally I think RI is great for a cross between street style and glam which is what I love. I've gone through their Autumn collection and thought I'd show you my favourite pieces..

Longline is the shape, and furry fuzz of all kinds is the texture. The first coat is so gorgeous and elegant although I'd be terrified of getting it dirty. I'm loving the blanket cardigans (do they have a name?) they just look so cosy and I bet super flattering because they'd create illusions. I absolutely love the stony colours and print of this one. Since I got mine from Miss Selfridge last year I have absolutely been obsessed with fur coats (faux of course) and this one is AMAZING, so Macklemore, cheeky but luxe . I really like the jumper underneath incidentally.

I'm desperate for the first dress - it kind of reminds me of my current obsession orange is the new black but the really loose shape I bet is really flattering and you can do your best Angelina impression. Second one is channelling the winter florals trend and looks more like something you'd find in Ted Baker. Sleeves are always a winner. That last look is the perfect embodiment of the street glam I mentioned earlier. The skirt is super daring but paired with the oversized tee doesn't look hoochie and the fringe bag is AMAZING. 

Am so excited to see this range hit stores, I think the orange dress will be first on my shopping list. Keep an eye out on River Islands website here. I'd love to know which pieces are your favourites? 

Until next time!

    I think River Island is going from strength to strength, I've bought one of the capes with the fur trim for Autumn and I love it.

    Great picks!
