transitional mood board

I’m starting off this week with a mood board as, can you believe it, it is the end of August which means my mind has totally switched to transitioning my wardrobe from Summer to Autumn. Recently I have been pinning and screenshotting so many amazing outfits and today I thought I’d share some with. There is definitely some themes going on, and from this I will introducing some new pieces into my wardrobe for the new season.

Some of the things I am loving right now are light denim, in every shape and form, just look at those denim mini skirts – I am obsessed! I have also been drawn to mustard this season, it is everywhere, and I’ve got my eye on a few pieces that will fit perfectly into my wardrobe. Another of my loves seems to be coloured and patterned shoes, I’ve just bought a pair of pink loafers and can not stop wearing them, they go with everything! Finally, I am loving the long kimono style embroidered jackets, I have look amazing with a really simple white t-shirt and jeans outfit and are a great transitional piece as it starts to get a little cooler.

Let me know in the comments below what you’re loving at the moment?


This top is all business in the front and party at the back and I love it! I’ve been saying that a lot recently about tops, but I had just fallen so out of love with my tops in wardrobe and this month I have found so many that I love, so I’ve been sharing a lot of them with you.

Anyway, back to the t-shirt, this is such an easy piece to style as it is just a basic black t-shirt, but with a little more going on at the back. I went for a really casual look this time round, but have worn it with culottes and sandals and it looks equally as good dressed up!

I’m heading off to the New Forest with my sister this weekend and am very excited about this little getaway, and of course to shoot some awesome outfits in some new places for you guys, so keep your eyes peeled for those next week!


Oh hey top that completely isn’t my kinda thing at all, but has somehow found it’s way into my wardrobe and I am loving it!

This top is probably the girliest top I own, and I love it! I fell in love with a similar top that Lucy Williams, from Fashion Me Now, wore in a recent blogpost, and when I saw this one on Asos I just knew I had to have it. It’s super soft and goes with a lot from basic jeans to fancy skirts for a more dressed up look, I love how it looks with these jeans as they kind of balance each other out so the top is so over the top girly. I am definitely looking to squeeze a few more wears out of this top before it’s jumper season again!


Today I am welcoming a new basic into my wardrobe, this super simple and easy Linen stone t-shirt. I am loving this stone/beige colour at the moment, from t-shirts to jumpsuits, it’s such a nice summery colour and goes with literally everything! So when I was hunting through the Asos sale and found this little gem I knew I had to add it to my collection of basic tees. This colour works so well with white and black and I love how this outfit looks, it’s super simple but not boring at all! The fact it’s made from linen is also a bonus as it means it’s perfect for hotter days, which I’m hoping there’s going to be a few more of!


I’m writing this now at 7:45 whilst on my train to Leeds, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet!

I am in love with this top, it’s the perfect summer piece, the detailing on the back and frayed hems are great. In the summer I find it really difficult to find nice, interesting tops to wear without a jacket, which is why I love Autumn because you can rock a really cool jacket with a basic tee and jeans and it instantly makes the outfit look less, well, basic! I digress, this top is surprisingly comfortable consideringit’s made from denim and I love this as a double denim outfit as it’s not too in your face double denim which is great!


These photos were taken on a sunny Sunday by my wonderful photographer that I call my mother at Shad Thames, now one of my favourite places in London. I love the cobbled streets and little alleyways, and the fact it’s so close to Tower Bridge and a short walk from More London, another place in London that I love. Since starting my blog, one of my most favourite things about doing it is actually going to all these different places in London, you get to see so much more of London whilst trying to find the perfect backdrop to go with a perfect outfit.

This moves me nicely onto today’s outfit, an outfit that I absolutely love! High necks make a simple stripe smock top so much more interesting, and I loved the ruoced detail on the neck and cuffs. Blue stripe tops look so good with a darker wash denim, and the black shoes and bag finish the outfit off perfectly!

On a completely different subject, I haven’t talked yet about my hair! Yes I now have brown hair and I love it soooo much. I was in need of a change and was so bored of the blonde/brown not really sure colour I had before. I am so happy with the colour and am now tempted to maybe cut it a bit shorter next time! Let me know what you guys think ?


Firstly, I liked to say a huge thank you for letting me have last week off, and secondly, I am so excited to share some looks with you guys this week!

Moving on to what I am wearing in today’s post, which features this beautiful dress from H&M, that is rather girly and boho and not my usual thing but I love it! I recently was searching through my wardrobe for some nice summer dresses to wear and realised that I didn’t have that many! I was in serious need of some summer dresses, and that’s where this dress comes in. In the summer creams, nudes, whites and stone colours are so beautiful, and I love contrasted with black for an edgier look. I loved wearing this outfit, and it has made me come out of my comfort zone a bit now when I’m looking online and in stores for new things, so expect so more out there pieces to come into my wardrobe come Autumn!


So today’s post is a bit of a different kind, I’m going to keep it short and sweat, I’m having a week off this week! Only for this week, so there will be no new posts until Monday 15th August, you can still check out all my recent posts, and I’ll be Instagraming daily still so follow me over on @elearoseblog to stay up to date with what I’m wearing. 

Have a fab week and see you all next week for a new outfit post and catch up! 

Yay for payday and yay for these new jeans! I have wanted a pair of vintage levi jeans for as long as I can remember, and when I stumbled across this pair on Urban Outfitters Urban Renewal section I knew I had to have them. They fit like a dream for me, sitting perfectly on my hips, and I love how they look with this outfit, which is a classic ‘borrowed from the boys’ super relaxed look.

Navy on navy is not something I do very often, but love how it looks, so when I was trying these jeans on with basically everything I own in my wardrobe, I thought this baggy navy t-shirt looked so cool, and knew this would be a great simple outfit to pair with my white converse! This outfit is the ultimate laid back sunday afternoon kinda look and I am totally loving it!

Another day, another shirt and jeans outfit! I am in desperate need of a wardrobe overhaul (I’m not sure how many times I’m going to say that before I actually get up off my butt and do something about it!) but this simple outfit was given a refresh with a few simple additions and changes. I’m sure I’ve spoken on the blog about it before, but I’ll say it again, a red lip makes boring or simplistic outfits 100 times better in my opinion, it’s the cherry on top of an outfit if you will. This lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury is my go to red as its soooo long lasting and that perfect shade of red for me.

In the same sense as lipsticks, sunglasses can definitely make or break an outfit and these sunnies definitely make it! I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of sunnies for ages now, and when I saw these it was true love, I love the beige and black together and the shape of them reminds me of Rayban club master rounds – one of my favourite sunglasses shape! A good pair of sunnies, like these, makes the outfit just that bit more interesting and effortlessly cool.

Finally, a different collar can make a big difference! I am all for a classic shirt, but recently I have been loving so many outfits with a grandad collar and just had to have one for myself, but instead of going out and buying yet another white shirt, I did a little experiment by just tucking in the collar of my normal, and here’s the result – my mum even thought I’d bought a new shirt so I’m pretty impressed with that!
