Anyone else see a new jumper they want online everyday? October is definitely ‘buy all the knitwear month’ now it’s officially cold isn’t it? I have to say I’m loving snuggling up in the evening in a thick jumper and some fluffy trousers, but it’s too far away from Christmas for me to be really excited about it. I’m not a huge Halloween fan either, anyone else? For a girl who doesn’t go out anywhere partying or clubbing it seems a bit pointless, and I think I’m a little old to go trick or treating…
But what I AM loving right now is looking through all of my summer clothes and giving them the Autumn touch. At the weekend I did a bit of a wardrobe sort out and instead of putting away summer items for good, I kept some out if I thought I could layer them up for Autumn or Winter outfits. You’d be so surprised at how many things can be worn again!
A few months ago you would’ve seen me wear a skirt just like this one from Wearall with a loose tee and some sandals (and a job lot of fake tan… and lighter hair and all the other nice things about Summer. Fuck). But items like these are so easily wearable throughout the year, whether it’s on a mild Autumn day with a tee and tights, or like the look I’ve gone for here with a cosy jumper, some thick tights and ankle boots.
During my sort out I found so many old jumpers from last year that I’d picked up in the end of season sale and now they’re pretty much brand new. It’s surprising what you find when you dig around, and when you layer these with your summer items you’ll find so many new outfits!
Without realising you’re saving money on items you’re not having to buy – kaaachinnngggg!
In this look I’ve gone classic Autumn (even with the backdrop) with a cream, black and denim feel. As I mentioned before the skirt is from Wearall and is in-keeping with the ongoing embroidered denim trend which isn’t going to leave any time soon… Having an item like this in your wardrobe will always be easy to style whether it be with a t-shirt or a knit, and I’ve gone for a creamy jumper which I recently picked up in H&M.
(If you follow me on Insta/Twitter you will have seen I spilt a Greggs pasta salad all over this jumper when I bought it… and I wanted to shoot this outfit the following day. Luckily the stains came out, but no, I did not iron it).
Anyway, I think this is the first outfit of the 2017 Autumn/Winter season where I’m wearing tights, yaaayaayyayaaayyy! Not everyone is a fan but I love a tights and boots combination and I dug these old Ravel boots out the other day and fell back in love with the stiletto heel.
