It’s Autumn again, the leaves are changing colour, conkers are falling from the tree and bopping people on the head (true story), the heating is on, pink/coral lipsticks have been put back in the cupboard for another year and the festive season is within reach.
I do love Autumn, I love the colours, the darker makeup, snuggling up on the sofa with a blanket and of course the excuse to go out and buy new clothes and footwear.
I’ve spotted so many gorgeous items in store and online recently and it’s been really difficult to curb the spending so I’ve decided to only buy a few pieces that will either work with what I have in my wardrobe already or things that can be worn yearly and won’t go out of style.
First up is the Hepburn Un-Invited guests dress from Lady Vintage, now £50.00 may sound a lot for a Halloween dress but I figured that this is something that could be brought out each year.
How amazing is this Beauty school jumper! Grease was one of my favourite films as a child and this jumper has brought so many great memories. Joanie currently has this jumper and at £38 it’s a steal especially as it’s so versatile and can be worn with skirts or trousers.
Tweed is one of my all time favourite fabrics so it’s only natural that I’ll be purchasing a new bag as an alternative to my Harris Tweed and Barbour bags a bit of a break. Joules has this Everday bag for £69.95 and I think it will be just about big enough to fit all of my things.
I love a boyfriend tee and it’s even better when it’s from AllSaints, I did take a break from the brand for a couple of years as it was eating too much into my purse but I’ve slowly been building up my collection again and this particular tee reminds me of one I had around 8 years ago (I’m sure it was the same price too) The Nightwolvs boyfriend crew is £45.
I would imagine that the Marks and Spencer pointed court shoes are in a lot of shopping bags this season, I couldn’t get the Ink coloured ones in my size so had to make do with the Black. At £35 they are a fraction of the price of the Manolo Blahnik shoes that Carrie Bradshaw made famous.
I love a cotton jersey dress as they are always so flattering and hide a multitude of sins. At £55 the Huers Hut dress from Seasalt is such a bargain I’ve purchased one in each of the two colours. I’d love to see this in a brown or yellow too. This style of dress looks great with coloured tights, I must get myself over to Slugs and Snails for some of their raindrop tights.
Joules always do an amazing selection of boots and the Westbourne leather chelsea boots are beautiful even though they have a price tag of £140. I’m a huge fan of a bit of animal print which make a nice change as most of my chelsea boots are either in plain black or brown.
The Bertha boat print Tee from Joanie is just adorable, who doesn’t love a nautical top? Joanie tops (and dresses) are such amazing quality for the price and you can pick this one up for £18. I’m going to stitch the arms up a little when mine arrives to change the shape of the sleeve.
I’ve got my eye on the Bonded Heritage check coat from Topshop, there are a couple of check coats that I have my eye on and this one at £65 is the cheapest of the bunch, it’s super smart and can be dressed up or down. I’ve not yet tried this on as I’m keeping my fingers crossed there is a “tall” version somewhere with a bit of extra length in the arms.
Do you own any of these items already? What’s on your Autumn wishlist?
Please note: I wasn’t asked to mention any of the brands in this post, I just love these items and hope you do too.
