I was thrilled to be invited along to the Atrium in Camberley to check out the Autumn fashion offerings. As much as I love to shop in central London, I love shopping locally far more. I had plenty of time to shop and lunch while still making it back to pick up little L from school. Mumlife! So back to the fashion. Autumn is my favourite season. The colours of nature are reflected in the fashion. Rich vibrant patterns and florals to brighten up those colder days.
Red alert- Red being the colour of the season is just so fabulous when used as a colour block full outfit or for adding a pop of colour to neutrals just does it for me. I spotted this adorable dress in H&M that looks fabulous on its own but would work just as well paired with wide leg trousers! The cut is so flattering, skimming not clinging and a beautiful shade of red. I even got a cute little bag to match in the sale for £5! Winning!
Another gem was this frilled polka dot blouse in bottle green. I’ve seen this is available in other colours too but I’m loving bottle green right now. This is a perfect day to night piece, dress up or down it looks fabulous. It’s quite sheer but I think not too indecent!
Cosy knits are essential for autumn, I like them to look stylish, be warm but not so bulky that I can’t wear under a coat. I love a crisp white jumper with jeans or chinos and Chelsea boots for cosy autumn walks. Now I also love a touch of Tina Sparkle! Like a magpie I zoomed in on this beautiful white sequin appliqué number in H&M and it didn’t disappoint.
I also found a gorgeous knit in Next along with a sassy maroon fur collared biker jacket which I didn’t want to take off.
Autumn prints are everywhere, rich shades of burnt orange, red and mustard. Floral prints on dresses and blouses on grey autumn days bring a burst of colour to brighten your mood. I never shy away from colour, it flatters the skin and the choices are in abundance right now.
This Floral blouse Is an absolutely bargain and literally pops with colour, the puff sleeve effect gives great shoulder definition and worn with a faux leather mini or midi skirt this outfit would carry me through from day to night.
The colours in this dress instantly warmed my skin, so pretty and loved the floaty bell sleeves, I’ll be wearing this with ankle boots and a biker jacket.
If you haven’t seen this Instagram famous polka dot midi dress its in store at H&M the Atrium! It’s already sold out online and is the most flattering cut, nipped in at the waist and skimming not clinging on the hips. A perfect day to night dress. I’ll be getting great use out of this worn with with white kicks & a biker jacket.
For evening appeal this beautiful shimmering dress caught my eye in Next that has a designer feel, an almost identical dress by YSL was shown in the autumn collections, it’s perfect for those soon to be here Christmas parties.
I also think you can’t go wrong with a well cut jumpsuit
Jumpsuits both H&M
or this simple, but beautifully ornate mini dress
With the current trend for all things British Heritage, Laura Ashley is spot on with its mix of cord, tweed and checks. There’s currently great reductions in the Atrium Camberley branch too. This fantastic wool biker jacket and grey wool trousers are great transitional pieces that work for both day & night.

Adore this Victoriana blouse styled with a checked wool skirt, capturing the heritage check trend perfectly.

For those cold winter days is there anything more snuggly than a duvet coat. Adore the vibrant blue of this one and it really felt so wonderful on.
And yes my favourite buy from the day was the red dress pictured here with my bargain bag! Im now on the hunt for the perfect red trousers to wear with it … But for now & before it gets too cold I’m styling it out with my red sock boots.
Hope you’ve had a bit of inspiration from my picks, and if you live locally do check out the Atrium for a relaxed days shopping & with a huge choice of restaurants too – it’s my kinda place! Everything I’ve posted was available In store.
