• {Monthly Roundup} October 2017 Fashion Favourites 

    October 2017 Fashion Favourites, a monthly roundup of all the outfit ideas I have shared throughout October. This roundup is the tenth installment for 2017 but the 24th installment since the series started, December 2015. Regular readers of A July Dreamer know how much I love sharing outfit ideas. I am a true believer in the statement that ‘Fashion fits all‘, find your style and work it. Don’t compare how an outfit looks on someone, embrace the difference and uniqueness of you.

    October 2017 Fashion Favourites

    When I thought September was a varied month, I had no idea just how true that would be for October. The entire month has been very busy and so varied but we like it like that around here. I have rarely shared any women’s fashion ideas this month. It seems the men in my life are taking over the blog with our recent collaborations.

    At the beginning of the month, I had many plans to share more outfit ideas with me in them. I shared the skinny ankle grazers I picked up from New Look which were a hit. Those who know me know how much I love my skinny jeans, I live in them. They are my go to pieces for a weekend getaway, running errands and even girls nights out. You can never go wrong with pairing your ankle grazers with blocked heels and leather jacket.

    topshop wishlist

    Sticking to form, styling pink in autumn was the next outfit ideas I shared for my female friends. I am not much of a pink, to be honest I have 3 items of clothing which are pink. It is not a colour I have often gravitated towards but this autumn I have. Such a simple and cheerful colour when styled right and if not too bright either.

    Towards the end of the month I have been putting together wishlists, most notably Topshop wishlist. Though the original idea was putting together items I am hoping to get my sister. That changed to items I would also love to get my hands on too. I also decided to put together a Boohoo wishlist with the items I am loving so far.

    October 2017 Fashion ~ Men’s Fashion

    Early on in October we got approached to collaborate with The Idle Man on Men’s Fashion. The Idle men in my life were pretty chuffed and we got to pick a couple of items for each. It has been pretty difficult in the past to find companies that catered to men’s fashion. I shared in the Boohooman how we were happy to see them doing XXXL range. The Idle Man has given us another option for the men in my life to buy affordable styling clothing. It has been great styling up the men in my life and keeping them warm thanks to The Idle Man.

    topman wishlist

    As we start to prepare for Christmas I have been creating different wishlists in the background. For my brother as a millennial I put together this Topman wishlist which he loves. His not the easiest to buy for but not the hardest either, his just in the middle.

    We then had a collaborative piece on men’s fashion shared on dressing to impress. I am sure every woman knows her favourite colour on a man, some are not bothered by it. Whilst that might be the case I know that bright crazy colours like yellow don’t suit my dad. Whilst black, white and navy blue works wonders on him, same for my brother who rocks most colours.

    October has been a great month and I am excited to see what November has in store for us. What was your favourite outfit we shared.

      I’m completely with you on Top Shop this year! I had always thought it was just for the teenagers, but I went to Oxford street last week, and honestly I could have spent all day there!

      What an awesome list! I am totally loving the ripped jeans. I have SOOO many pairs of them from AE (since they are the only ones that fit in the length ie short) and they are incredibly comfortable!

      It is hard to pick a favourite but out of the looks shown I love the red Chelsea boots and the men’s denim stonewashed jackets! Fabulous picks x

      I love the fact that you have white jeans on there – I always tend to wear my white jeans in the summer months only but it’s made me re-think – I love the idea of wearing them with a denim shirt and those red boots!

      Those red boots! I am massively lusting after a pair of red boots they are going on my wish list right now!

    26. October 30, 2017 / 12:51 pm

      Pretty! I just love fall colors. I like that bag. The shoes look lovely, but I need flats in order to be comfy.
