A short one for you guys today.
As I'm writing this, it's really windy outside, and our tree is slowly polluting the neighbours garden with leaves. So I guess it's time to get my AW wardrobe sorted. Autumn is my favourite time of year and I always get so excited when dressing for it. I find autumn clothes so comfortable and so much fun to style (hello pretty boots and cute scarves).
Anyway, Henri Lloyd has just released it's AW10 collection and it looks fabulous. I can't wait to dress up like the girls in the lookbook. It has a lot of country and nautical influences and is heaven for someone who loves layering, yet wants to be protected from the weather. The collection is definitely very stylish and fashionable, but still functional for the winter.
The jackets from the collection are perfect for the upcoming winter weather. They look fabulous and are also enough to keep you warm and sheltered.
The collection is also very fitting with the nautical trend, which thankfully isn't going anywhere. Henri Lloyed has gorgeous high waisted trousers, and there are nautical details, such as gold buttons, throughout the collection.
Outerwear is something I always struggle with though, but Henri Lloyd had hit the mark. I love the toggled Parka they have: definitely something to keep you warmed up.
Here are my favourites from the lookbook:
Also, as you should know, I do love doing my bit for charity. Nothing gets me like a good cause. Anyway, Swarovski Elements, that American Cancer Society, Philips de Pury and 22 to the world's most well known designers are working together on an amazing campaign, to help find a cure for cancer. They've launched a '22Ways to Stay Black' project. The 22 designers, such as Armani and DVF, each designed custom LBD's, which were adorned with Swarovski Elements. The dresses will then be auctioned in New York, on the 20th September, with ALL the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society and La Ligue Contre le Cancer, in France.
You can check out a video about the campaign, as well as more information from it's Facebook Page.
Here are some of the dresses I would be bidding on if I could first, afford to get to New York for the event, and second, afford to bid on them:

Also, here's something for all of you on the job hunt. I do have a job now, but before, I was introduced to: When You Grow Up (WYGU). It's basically a careers and advice service that helps people get their dream job. It's definitely worth a sign up, especially if you're pursuing your dream job, or if you already have it.
It's a lot of fun to play around on the site and definitely give their personality test a go. It'll tell you what jobs you're suitable to do (I got psychologist and Politician), as well as a career's section that gives you key information about any career you're thinking about about getting into.
As you'll know, I have a Politics degree, and am really passionate about Politics itself. It's my dream to, one day, go back into that field, for a proper career, and I'm definitely going to use WYGU for that. I've started a video diary with them that will document my efforts, and you can check it out here.
Hope you're all having a relaxing Sunday.
