Never one to be rushed into being excited for a season before it is here, now summer has well and truly past, I now welcome everything the colder months bring (except the darkness, I love long summer days). While my work wardobe needs a bit more of an update to adequately cope with aumtumn/winter, in my weekend wardobe I haven’t needed a lot to refresh it slightly. I doubt I am done buying any more, but for now I love my most recent autumn picks, here they are –
ASOS Oversized long woven scarf in pink leopard: I love scarves, I can never have too many although like my attitude to other items in my wardrobe, I try to fill gaps rather than purchase items too similar to something else I already own. If you remember last winter, I rarely left the house without my gorgeous River Island animal print scarf (see it here), however unfortunately, when my beautiful bunny Lola suddenly died back in April, I had to use the scarf to take her home in and understandably, while I have washed it since, it brings unhappy memories for me now. I have never owned a big oversized scarf so when I saw this one on ASOS, I just had to have it!
Boohoo cable rib knit jumper (purchased via ASOS): What’s autumn without a good cream cable knit jumper? I love this one from Boohoo, I like how it is longer at the back and the cable knit pattern is just at the front.
David & Young Bobble Hat (purchased at TK MAXX): I don’t always suit beanie style hats but I really love the style of bobble hats and I couldn’t resist this one.
ASOS Velvet Cat Cross Body Bag: I don’t usually purchase clothing or accessories that I deem to be too distinctive to one particular shop, or too popular because God forbid I have that moment whereby I walk past someone, or rock up to work wearing the same thing as someone else. That being said, when I saw this little velvet cat bag on Zoella’s recent autumn lookbook, I couldn’t resist. It’s just that bit too small to fit my current purse into, but it is otherwise a lovely sized bag and ideal when you’re not needing to carry around a lot.
New Look Animal Print Skirt: I had my eye on this skirt for ages before finally purchasing it when it had 25% off a couple of weeks ago. You guys know how much I love animal print clothing and accessories (here) and this is another fun piece to add to my collection and so easy to wear both casually, and in the work place.
D&Y Cape (Purchased at TK MAXX): I love capes and wraps, I think they add a real point of interest to an outfit and I love this one I recently purchased. For me, they are ideal to wear when it’s cold enough to need layers, but you might not need the thickness of a big heavy coat.
Primark Long Sleeved Khaki Green Dress: These types of dresses are becoming such a work staple at the moment as they are so easy to wear paired with tights and either flats or boots. This one from Primark I love, but the fabric is very figure hugging so while it’s very comfortable to wear, I will always wear it with a big scarf or chunky knit cardigan to take the attention away from my front. I am not fat by any means but not everyone likes their womanly curves to be quite on show -you get me?
ASOS Totes Furry Rabbit Boot Slippers: I’ve been in need of a new pair of slippers for months and being a rabbit fan, I just love this pair of slipper boots from ASOS. While I argue they look more like lambs than bunnies (although the back of the slipper has little white bunny tail), they are still very cute and VERY comfortable!
Primark Rabbit patterned Pajama bottoms: I love Primark for pajamas, who doesn’t?! I of course had to pick up this pair of bunny patterned ones on a recent visit!
What are you autumn essentials?
Until next time x
