Autumn Wishlist

If you’re wondering why I haven’t accompanied this post with a photo of me wearing all my autumn clothes it’s because we’ve had surprisingly good weather in London. The closest I’ve managed to get to Autumn clothes is either a pair of jeans or a dress with a mid length sleeve. The dress above has been a favourite of mine this summer, I find it’s very easy to wear as it’s monochrome, not too short and has a nice mid-length sleeve, it’s also only £30 from Amazon. The necklace is another favourite and one I have been wearing all summer long. It’s from a brand I recently discovered called Carrie Elizabeth that has really stunning mid-range jewellery, everything from this beautiful initial locket to Moonstone rings.

I am super excited for autumn but I also know that in England we have Autumn/Winter for such a long period of the year that I’m trying to not wish summer away but I so find autumn to be the most inspiring time of the year in terms of fashion/clothes so honestly my Wishlist is pretty long, I have been trying to shop second hand where possible but always find the high street to be the easiest place to start my shopping. I often try things on in-store and then look if I can find it online secondhand (on Depop or eBay) but more on that another time.

Let’s start with my shoes Wishlist- I’m after comfy shoes that I can throw on with most outfits as I’m really trying to wear my plain white converse a little less. Last year I had the Nike M2K Tekno trainers on the top of my wishlist but I didn’t get them (really wish I had!), they’ve made it to the list again so I’m hoping to get them or a similar pair of shoes. I know the dad-trainer trend isn’t for everyone but personally I’m a big fan and I love how easy to wear and comfy they are.

Over the years I’ve also learnt not to say I wouldn’t never do a certain trend but I initially didn’t like white boots but I really like them at the moment and on the hunt for the perfect pointy pair with a slight heel, I’ve been looking for a little while and haven’t quite found them at the right price as I don’t want to invest as I do think they’re quite a trend led shoe. Finally I want a comfy pair of loafers which I can slide on and wear with any pair of jeans, I love how easy summer sandals are and I want something that’s just as easy but more weather appropriate.

I’m not quite ready for coats although I have been browsing them and my tip for coats is to have a look in H&M as they have some amazing ones this season! Instead of coats I am currently after some blazers and jumpers. I picked up a blazer from H&M in a great check which is also from the conscious range, it’s the perfect thickness which means I think I’ll be able to wear it into winter with a thick jumper and I’m even going to try and pick up a very similar one in black. I’ve never been crazy about blazers but I feel like I’m really starting to see the appeal! I’ve also had my eyes on the M&S Cashmere jumpers as everyone raves about them but if you have any other cashmere recommendations I’d love to hear them in the comments.

Finally, I really want a pair of leather trousers and a pair of leopard print trousers, this has proved a little harder as I need to go into store to try items on but I think they’ll both be great wardrobe staples. I think they’re both a great alternative to jeans but still a good neutral base that can be dressed up and down.

What is top of your Autumn wishlist? Are you excited for autumn or sad to see summer go?
