Autumn is finally here!! As an Autumn baby, this makes me very happy. If you asked me to choose between seasons, it would have to be Autumn/ Winter. I just love being snuggly and cosy. I love layers, I’m obsessed with coats and live for ankle boots.
I’m very happy with the seasonal change right now.
Right now we have a mixture of weather, which basically stands for you have to be prepared for all the different elements. One minute it is chucking it down and then it is gloriously warm. Yes, that’s England for you. When dressing for this type of weather, you need to be prepared for a sudden change- so your outfit needs to be versatile. Layers are your friend here!
We are not talking wool layer after layer- we are talking light easy layers which can withstand the indecisive weather. These are the perfect key pieces for any transitional wardrobe.
The Crossbody Bag
I love a cross body bag. It is just so versatile and easy to carry. For this type of weather, you want a medium-size one, big enough for a compact brolly but small enough so you don’t feel weighed down by it. I’m loving this one from Marks & Spencer, the embroidery on it is perfection.
The Light Jumper
A fine knit, light jumper is perfect for this weather. Keeping you warm when you need it but light enough to be worn on its own when it gets a little warmer. This one from Warehouse is adorable, I love the scallop detailing. It’s perfect for tucking into jeans, which is a look I am living for right now. I think I have barked on enough about my new love for straight-leg jeans, but they are seriously the best denim I’ve ever worn! This dark-blue pair from ASOS are my favourite jeans right now.
The Throw-On Jacket
This jacket has had so much attention on Instagram already, it was too good to keep myself. A jacket was the perfect addition to my transitional wardrobe. The jacket/ blazer is from, where else, Zara. The colour and texture is that ideal deep-autumn colour that pulls the jumper and embroidered bag altogether. I’m looking forward to styling this jacket in multiple ways- keep an eye out for more pictures of it on the blog.
The Easy Pointed Flats
I live in flat shoes and what I love for pulling a simple outfit together is a pointed flat. These are perfect for dressing up an outfit but keeping a relaxed vibe. These are from my favourite online store, ASOS. Simple, a colour that does with everything- just ideal for an everyday outfit.
