I’ve been in denial about Autumn’s arrival for long enough now. This past weekend I finally swapped the wardrobe over and sorted bags of stuff to sell, donate and just wonder ‘What was I thinking?’ Chunky fisherman sandals, I’m looking at you. Autumn tends to be a bit of a fleeting season here in the UK, I’m either boiling on the tube in my layers or way too optimistic with my ankles out in flats. It’s a time to get a little bit strategic about your shopping, snapping up the key items before they sell out and brainstorming ways to stay creative in the cold.
If you’re an avid online shopper like me, then you’ve probably noticed Klarna popping up as a payment option every so often. It simplifies the online shopping experience, allowing you to ‘Pay Later’ for your items up to 30 days after they have been delivered to you and there’s no complicated sign up process (see how it works here). I often shop in this way if I want to try items in multiple sizes or things I’m not sure about, as it means that I’m not waiting for refunds to go back on my card. With Klarna, you’re emailed an invoice once your items have been dispatched and they offer buyer protection in case of any issues.
Since they’ve got a dreamy brand campaign at the moment (you may have noticed their strangely soothing videos), so I’ve taken up the challenge to create an outfit loosely based on their colour palette. Of course I had to go for the pastel blue, since it’s a nice unexpected shade to wear in the colder months. I also stuck to my tried and tested jumper, skirt and fluffy coat combination, it’s great if you’re not having much luck with dresses and want to combine a mixture of different textures. Most of my recent Instagram photos are some variation of this look and I love confusing people who think I’m wearing bare legs.
If you fancy updating your wardrobe, then Klarna are hosting a competition over on Facebook where you could win a £500 gift card once you’ve voted for one of the looks. Of course I’m not trying to sway your decision and this link to mine is just a gentle suggestion…
