Last weekend, we had a shift in the weather that showed us autumn is really here! So much so, that my big coat made its seasonal debut! It hasn’t been as cold again since, but it has definitely got me thinking more about my autumn/winter wardrobe and what I need to add to it.
I decided to bring Charlie along because any opportunity for him to get out more is good, although he didn’t appreciate the slower walk, or the pausing to take pictures…
All the items shown in this post have been in my wardrobe over a year (some for 3!) and I’m still just as excited to wear them as I was when I got them, I aim to make most, if not all my purchases from now on, items that I will love for years to come.
I find that I prefer autumn fashion. The shops seem to stock items that are more to my taste and the need for extra layers allows me to indulge my love of contrasting textures. I actually can’t wait to start wearing scarves, but for now, a hat and coat in the same outfit was exciting enough.
A typical autumn, look for me, this outfit combines a more delicate, almost romantic top, with tougher “biker” style trousers, classic items such as the wool coat and the fedora with a contemporary design twist and accessories that add a bit of edge.
