Autumn Fashion Edit: 5 New Things

DSC_0003

It’s been absolutely boiling here in Cardiff this week which is just typical, innit?  And there was me all ready to bust out the big jumpers, boots and scarves.  I took Bungle for a walk earlier in the week and ended up coming back a sweaty mess!  Still, it’s getting colder every morning and I can’t wait to really get into my Autumn wardrobe – including these five things I picked up recently. 🙂

1. Baggy Jumper

I really wanted to find a nice oversized jumper to wear this autumn, and I fell in love with this one when I spotted it in H&M at the end of the summer.  The colour is a kind of frosty blue that goes so well with denim, and the wool isn’t too prickly either.

2. Trainers

There’s absolutely no way I can get away with the whole ugly trainer trend – nor would I want to, if I’m being completely honest.  I DON’T GET IT.  I mean, £705 for these?  I’m not a fan.  I am, however, a massive fan of Converse.  My mint green high tops are well loved, and over the summer I felt like I fancied picking up a white ankle pair that would go with both jeans and dresses.  But, it’s Autumn now and there’s no way a pristine clean pair of white chucks are going to survive the morning dog walk through puddles and leaf mould.  So instead of shelling out £50 on a pair that are probably going to be ruined by the time the Christmas decs go up, I spent £6 on these dupes from Primark. 🙂

3. Snuggly Oversized Scarf

I really didn’t need another scarf – I’ve got LOADS – but I haven’t got a black one.  I spotted (…😉 ) this one in Zara at the end of August and just knew I’d end up wearing it all winter with everything – because it’ll go with everything!  And, the polka dots mean that it’s not just another boring black scarf.

4. Statement Shirt

You know me, I can’t resist a weird shirt and I’ve been eyeing up adding a bold black and white striped one to my collection for a while now.  I pretty much haven’t taken this one off since I picked it up in H&M at the beginning of September, so I’m counting it as a solid addition to the squad.  It’s not made from silk, but it’s kind of a heavy weighted alternative which means it hangs really nicely.  I LOVE it.

5. Animal Print

Okay, so this one technically isn’t new – but I’ve brought it back into rotation after a long summer break.  I love all the animal prints out there right now, but I’m yet to find anything I like clothing wise – plus, aren’t we a little close to overdoing it?  I mean, so many people are wearing animal print (particularly leopard) at the moment that it’s practically becoming a uniform.  I love it, but like I said, I’m yet to make the plunge clothing wise and if I’m honest I’m not entirely sure I will.  But, what I do have is the Cheetah Print Bag I picked up in TK Maxx, I think around this time last year.  It’s enough to jazz up my Autumn/Winter grey, monochrome and denim wardrobe without going full on Jungle Book.

Have a great weekend guys! 🙂
