The nights are drawing in, the leaves are turning & the kids have gone back to school.

It’s a new season & the new collection is starting to land at Collen & Clare.
The palette is rich and dark. Forest green, russet orange & burgundy sit with smokey greys & sophisticated camel, all linked with gorgeously organic prints.

Corona Roll Neck Sweater £330 | S Max Mara 

Ozono Skirt £265 | S Max Mara 

Zipit Suede Grey Boot £245 | Sargossa 

If there is one thing, ok, two things that I’m dreaming of ( it’s not a white Christmas ) is a pair of knee high boots.

We’ve bought some fab ones from Unisa that won’t break the bank & they’ll look awesome with the new length midi skirts that are around.


Pailo Rabbit and Racoon Fur Jacket £273 | Rino & Pelle 

Long Floral Print Crepe Dress £175 | Ottod ame 

Kaso Suede Platform Boot £169 | Unisa 

The second and this will blow the budget completely & utterly out of the water is the Mulberry Camden bag in leopard £2,250. But oh my! It is gorgeous. Structure & slouch all at the same time with the added bonus of it being leopard print, which, as we all know is a neutral, so will go with everything. So it’s all good……
