Autumn/Winter 2016 with Apricot!

I have never made it a secret that apricot very quickly became one of my absolute favourite Sping/Summer brands, and that their tops and dresses have become the items of clothing that you're most likely to see me wearing. However, this time last year, I had never even heard of apricot let alone to the extent of love that I have for them now, and therefore I wasn't quite sure what to expect when it came to their Autumn/Winter collection. Therefore, when the chance came up to try some of their A/W goodies*, of course I said yes!

Apricot monochrome stripe pattern batwing necklace top
The first item I chose was this beautiful monochrome stripe pattern batwing necklace top (£19). I already own another necklace top from apricot and it's one of my favourites to wear as it's really versatile and I love the addition of the necklace - I'm REALLY bad at accessorising and knowing what goes with what, and so something like this really helps me out as I already know when buying it that of course it's going to match! Because I'm so bad with accessories it also helps to have this top as it reminds me that maybe I SHOULD be trying to match something with it afterall!

 This top is really comfortable and a great one for wearing around the house or for casual trips out for brunch. The arms are loose which means you get a bit of freedom there - but at the same time, unlike some other tops they're not constantly slipping around and getting on your nerves!
 The pattern is pretty and it's just so comfortable to wear. This one is definitely going to go into my heavy rotation of day to day clothes!

 Next up, we have what has very quickly become my favourite dress - the black & stone digital rose print skater dress (£32). I love this dress. I love it SO much. As soon as I put it on I had to go and dance around the flat so that everyone else could see it too and I got nothing but positive responses. If you follow me on twitter or instagram, you'll probably already have seen that I'm wearing it basically everywhere right now. In fact, I'm even planning on wearing it to an event I'm going to tonight!

This is a really versatile dress and the colours make it great for the season. I don't normally go for darker colours when it comes to dresses but the patterns on this are absolutely perfect and I think the shape on it is so flattering and pretty.

 My final choice was this sequined wonder - the navy sequin front mesh blouse (£26). This is a lovely and comfortable top that is, of course, super sparkly - although the back is not, so don't worry about that! This would be a great top to wear if you're doing any parties over the holiday season and it works great with some simple jeans so you don't have to worry about getting too dressed up to match it.
