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.
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.
And my favourites online:
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.
And my favourites online:
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! 🙂
