It’s that time of year again where the leaves are turning amazing shades of orange and red, scarves are appearing around necks and the rain begins to fall.
As I’m sure many people do, I just love the colours and smells of autumn. You can always tell when the season is changing and for some reason it always makes me giddy. I decided to embrace the autumn season by dressing up in some autumnal colours and wearing a nice bold lip colour.
I think next time i might experiment with a dark burgundy colour on my lips, but today I used a mixture of red and pink gloss.
I also wore burgundy trousers, one of my favourite items, i just love the colour! I thought they might be hard to match with other items, but i’ve found a lot of things they just look great with!
My bag is a cute number I bought from Primark years ago and is just perfect for the autumn season with it’s brown and orange leaves! Plus it’s huge and so there’s plenty of room for all the things a girl could carry.
The coat is also from primark and is very versatile.
My top was a birthday gift a few years ago and is great when paired with a waisted belt. I particularly love this brown knotted one I have.
I do have an autumn skirt i’m in the middle of sewing, but unfortunately i haven’t been able to set up my sewing station since moving house. Hopefully I can make it before all the autumn colours disappear from the trees!
What is your favourite autumn item to wear?
I love this cardigan. I find it is very versatile and perfect to team up with a casual jean or a dressy skirt.
Yesterday I wore it with some pin striped jeans and boots for the smart-casual look.
I tied my hair up in a french plait (although not the neatest plait i’ve ever done) and did a big smokey eye look.
I also wore my three favourite rings. The one on my right hand I bought in China. The large heart and banded heart were from a table top sale and a vintage stall.
I finished the look off with a cute hair bow.
I think it’s important to have a few items like this cardigan which can be worn with many different styles, hopefully i’ll have a chance to wear it more dressed up soon!
