I thought it might be a good idea to start making some outfit posts on Polyvore (hayleighjm (give my Polyvore a follow!), to provide some inspiration and ideas for looks as many of you were asking for outfit of the day posts I think this would be a good alternative for in the meantime!

 This look is one I created for the weather at the moment, it is half way between being cold and wanting to be cold so a full on coat can be too much and just a jumper can leave you on the edge of both, which is never a good thing. This kind of jacket is a great solution to this time of year, I found one in GAP in Canada a couple of years ago and its so easy to throw over a jumper for some extra layers, this one is from Topshop Unique and you can find a cheaper alternative at high street shops such as New Look or River Island, and as always, TK Maxx would be a great place to look for one off pieces like this, especially in the contempory designers section.
The bag I know is extremely far fetched for most budgets but I adore it and fell in love so I just had to include it into the outfit, just a simple plain structured bag like this one! I can vouch for the quality of this bag as I have had it for a year or so and its held strong, there is a main compartment along with two popper sides, and at only £29.99 its honestly one of the best deals, this bag would also be good as a bag for school or college as the size and durability will allow you to carry what you need!
As for the shoes, again they aren't very plausible, but Saint Laurent is my absolute favourite designer at the moment so, it had to be done. However I have found a fabulous alternative from Zara again, available here, I adore these Zara alternative as they could be worn in so many ways, and in winter a new boot investment is always a profitable one, I know I will be saving up for some new boots as I practically live in mine. A good place for boots in general on the high street is Office, this is where I got mine a year and a half ago and I have worn them almost every day, even in the Summer and they have held so very well, apart from some obvious wear so I highly recommend Office as a place to consider.
The sunglasses, Saint Laurent are so so so very stunning and they are my Christmas present and I cannot wait so I just had to include my new babies it would be a sin not to right? They are the perfect bold pair of sunglasses and are designed to suit any face shape, I felt so good when I tried them on it was indeed love at first sight. So, you will be seeing them a lot in future outfit posts as I am sure I will make it my job to fit them in with every outfit possible.
A pair of black skinnies can be found anywhere and I would be surprised if you didn't already have some to hand to work into this kind of outfit, for this autumn and winter you will definitely be in need of a good pair of skinnies, I almost always get my jeans from H and M as you cant beat the quality for the price, however TK Maxx is always good to look in to see whether they have some more expensive jeans at the price you were willing to pay!
The jumper is a very affordable addition to this outfit, being from Mango, and the quality of Mango clothes is very good and is similar to that of places like Zara and similar prices, I am wearing a Mango jumper right now as I type this and I can vouch for the quality you will get. The scarf as well you would easily be able to pick up a plain black scarf wherever you went so have a hunt and create a new autumn winter look for yourself!
