Morning ladies as we approach the end of August, I don't know about you but I'm starting to get excited about cosy Autumn days & with it the arrival of all the new fashion that is starting to be released & what better way to mark the countdown than taking a peek at what Baukjen have in stall for us this Autumn.

As you know I'm a huge fan of the brand who make well cut, stylish & sustainable clothing that has a hint to the latest trends, that will stand the test of time & makes achieving that effortless timeless style we all crave so much easier.

So let's get started with this month's top 10 picks.  Starting with a shirt that has my name all over it.  Ruffle neckline & puff detailing to the sleeves - hello shirt of dreams.  For me this is the perfect alternative to the classic white shirt.  Team with cropped straight leg jeans, blazer & ballet pumps for Autumn, then layer with a crew neck jumper come winter.

The key to always having something to wear, is not due to the amount of clothing hanging in your wardrobe but  as a result of investing in key staples.  Pieces that can be mixed & matched, dressed up or down.  Pieces like the above Ayla Top.  Ideal for pairing with a whole host of looks - from cigarette pants & a blazer for the office, jeans & trainers for the weekend or even a leather skirt & heels for a night out.

For anyone that tends to live in jeans but is desperate to smarten their look up a bit, then the Melie Blouse if just perfect.  The pretty ruffle detailing to the collar & cuffs as well as the puff sleeve detailing make this blouse ideal for teaming with jeans.  For a smarter occasion team with skinny jeans & a kitten heel ankle boot/ballet flat & for everyday pair with some turned up straight leg/boyfriend jeans & trainers.

my midlife fashion, Baukjen Lorraine top

Back onto basics with the Lorraine Top, that will soon prove to be a hard working investment.  Whilst simple in design, the uniqueness of this top lies in the detailing - the gathered cuffs & shoulders together with the fitted band at the waist ensures that this top is anything but ordinary & will help elevate all those wardrobe staples.

my midlife fashion, Baukjen aneira dress

Aneira Dress - get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

Moving onto dresses with a couple of great pieces that are perfect for transitioning into Autumn.   Starting with this pretty dress with statement sleeves that would be perfect layered with a biker jacket & teamed with trainers.  You could also swap the fabric tie belt for a leather one or even if you prefer wear it without.  For me this is the ultimate in easy everyday dressing & could also be worn all year round by swapping the trainers for a pair of simple sandals for warmer days with a denim jacket if needed & then for winter pair with some ankle boots & a chunky knit, which Baukjen just so happen to have the perfect one (see here).  Or if dresses aren't your thing then this design also comes in a pretty blouse here.

my midlife fashion, Baukjen Paige dress

Paige Dress - get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

Baukjen have got some stunning dresses for Autumn & it was difficult whether to include the Paige Dress above or this one.  Both are perfect for styling as I've mentioned above with the Aneira Dress & the statement emerald green of the above Paige Dress would be perfect for layering with gold accessories.

my midlife fashion, Baukjen jody recycled wood cardigan

Judy Recycled Wood Cardigan - get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

Moving onto knitwear next, a vital part of all our Autumn wardrobe.  How gorgeous is this cardigan - a classic style, a stunning shade of blue & it looks just perfect with the Sadie Shirt.  I just love everything about how it's been styled above.

my midlife fashion, deryn ecotec cardigan

Deryn Ecotec Cardigan - get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

I've already mentioned the Deryn Cardigan above, which looks fabulous as shown with a white shirt & jeans but equally as I've already said would also be ideal for layering with the Aneira Dress.  The perfect cosy knit for those dark, wet & damp winter days.

Brooklyn Organic Hoodie - get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

Talking of cosy days then how cosy does this long line hoodie look.  Perfect for wearing with a pair of joggers for days when you're staying in but equally I love it teamed with leather leggings & trainers for running errands.

my midlife fashion, baukjen liz pant

Liz Pant - get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

Finally how gorgeous are these trousers.  An in-between a cigarette pant & jogger they offer the ultimate in comfort whether it's working from home, out running errands or for a casual meet up with friends.  Throw on with a biker jacket or loose fit blazer for the ultimate in dressed down chic.

Baukjen have very kindly sent me a few pieces to style, so any guesses what I decided to choose?  Never an easy decision but a lovely one to have to make.  So after much pondering here's what made my final cut.  First off their Sadie Organic Shirt, also their Judy Recycled Wood Cardigan & finally their Liz Pant.  All of which have proved so popular that I'm still awaiting delivery but promise to share some pictures & details as soon as they arrive.

In the meantime I wanted to show you their Alwen Organic Jacket, which has recently arrived.  This is going to prove one of those wardrobe 'must haves' extremely quickly.  It really is the ideal transitional piece.  Perfect to wear as a jacket before winter arrives but equally ideal for wearing as a warmer shirt come the colder weather.  Plus the cotton is so incredibly soft that I just want to stroke it!  In terms of sizing I'd say it's true to size.  I'm wearing a UK 8 & it has just the right amount of room to wear a Breton or even cashmere jumper underneath.

  1. Wow, loving all of the choices you have brought to us; especially that first white blouse with ruffle neck! Great navy shirt/jacket too!

    1. They've got some stunning pieces haven't they Deb. The blouse is a real classic & I just know the jacket is going to be getting a lot of use.
