I freakin’ love autumn!
The thought of summer excites me but in Scotland you only really have the thought of summer. Every year I just end up looking forward to the end of it and the point when it becomes acceptable to wear black tights again.
There’s so much to love about autumn. The cool, crisp weather. The leaves turning the most amazing red and orange colours and falling off the trees. The fallen leaves crunching under your feet. Pumpkin spice lattes. And another great thing is getting to shop for new clothes, cosy knits, boots and winter coats!
I’ve put together a few bits that I’m loving right now and that are perfect for autumn and winter!
Dr Martens Adrian Smooth loafer – since getting my Dr Martens Chelsea boots last year I’ve been coveting another pair of Docs, probably helped by the fact I didn’t get the crippling pain I was expecting while breaking them in. I have loved the look of Docs for years but lacked the confidence to wear them. These are perfectly my style, I love giving a cute dress or skirt a bit of an edge with a pair of not so pretty shoes.
Fat Face Leia denim pinafore – one of the great things about autumn is getting to dig the tights back out again. A lot of the time during the “warmer” months I’m a jeans and tee kinda girl and denim is such an easy casual thing to wear. Therefore a denim dress for the winter is a no brainer. The thing I love about a pinafore is that much like jeans, you can pair it with different tops to make different outfits. This dress with a black polo neck, tights and boots is the perfect cosy look.
Boden red and white Breton top – so it may be known that I’m a sucker for a breton tee. I honestly don’t know why I’m so drawn to them, I think it’s maybe just cause they’re an easy go to and it doesn’t look as plain as a white top with jeans. I’m not sure my obsession will ever end but I feel like I maybe need to mix up the colours a bit so I own more than black and white ones. I love the colour on this and it’s definitely a way for me to wear a bit more red (and also look like Where’s Wally while I’m at it).
New Look Black Floral Brocade Heeled Boots – I’m so glad embroidery is still on trend! These boots are amazing and the perfect way to dress up a pair of skinny black jeans.
New Look Red Longline Collared Coat – I normally go for a black winter coat but this is lovely. I’m a big fan of the bold colour and it would make a nice change from my usual black or grey.
New Look Mustard Yellow Suedette Biker Jacket – I think mustard yellow is my favourite autumn colour. This jacket is perfect for layering and wearing with a big scarf and bobble hat to keep you warm before you really need to dig out the winter coat.
Fat Face Washed Black Super Skinny Jeans – Fat Face is a company I only really discovered earlier on this year. I know they’ve been around for years but their style is not always a look I’ve gone for. That being said, they make damn good jeans, plus the added bonus is that they are an ethical company.
What’s your wishlist this autumn?
