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 was so excited when I opened up my curtains to see snow billowing down from the sky this morning. I know the white stuff is highly annoying to some as it often coincides with bitter cold winds, icy paths and (at least in the unprepared UK) transport delays, but I still feel the childish sense of joy every time I see a flake whirling it’s way to the ground.
Unfortunately I’m extremely full of cold (thanks mother!) and so just couldn’t muster up the energy to play and make snowmen for today, but I did manage to get outside and crunch around for a little bit before running back inside to the warmth!
Of course for this I needed the perfect warm weather coat and, as luck would have it, I think I own it!
I bought this coat last winter from H&M and have never regretted it. It constantly gets complements and is so warm and snuggly! The fur around the collar makes me feel like a proper lady and is detachable so that it doesn’t get ruined in the wash! The material is super warm, which is just as well because it’s so well fitted around the waist that I can’t wear any thick jumpers under it! Plus the colour is just gorgeous!
I think everyone should own a fantastic winter coat. What is yours like and what makes it so great?
