I can guarantee I am not the only one who is like this right now, but the moment the calendar flipped over to 1st September, I’ve been in full Autumn/Winter mode ever since – despite it still being somewhat warm. I’m not a fan of the cold – I just can’t function in it, in all honesty. But, I do love the feeling of Autumn; chunky knits, boots, hot chocolates and the thought of Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas!
My wardrobe is ready for Autumn at all times of the year as jumpers, jeans and boots are something I live in. However there are always a few bits and pieces that catch my eye every time the season comes around again, which is what I’m going to show you today – my Autumn Wishlist 2016.
Not exactly wearable, but how cute yet simple is this cushion? Come closer to Christmas, I do tend to switch up my bedding and start loading it with throws and cushions and switching to a darker coloured sheets, so this is the first one I have on the list.
Wool Blend Chunky Snood from John Lewis
These always look the same wherever you buy them, but I particularly love the chunkier knitted snoods and this one is perfect. I have long and extremely chunky scarfs in my draw but these are too big/warm to wear right now. Therefor snoods are the perfect Autumn accessory to keep you warm but avoid heating up and getting into a sweaty mess just moments after leaving the house!
Bonded Swing Coat from Warehouse
How gorgeous is this coat? I love collarless coats and still have the first ever one I bought from H&M in New York from 3 years ago, simply because I can’t seem to let it go! But maybe this year it’s time. I love the rustic orange colour but with the black lining inside adding a little contrast. I just think it’s such a nice, casual coat which can easily be thrown over an outfit to a nice evening meal without it spoiling the look.
Biker-Style Boots from Amazon
Like I said, I love boots and I practically live in them. After having issues with my feet for over a decade now, there are only certain style boots/shoes that my feet can handle really and this style boot has always remained a firm favourite. I love the chunky soles as this helps keep the little piggies warm, but always makes it comfortable to walk in too. Better yet, I love the slouched look of the leather at the top.
Rimmel The Only One Lipstick
This range of lipsticks is a firm favourite. They’re long-lasting, moisturising and also smell amazing!
But once this time of year hits, all my dark berry colours come back out to play! Nudes and pale pinks do NOT suit me at all, probably because I’m extremely pale, so dark berry tones do just nicely.
Backpacks are the ultimate bag for me. I used to wear one on the daily from New Look to work, as it stores my essentials, lunch and other bits and pieces just nicely! But then it broke and I’ve resulted in a little canvas shopper bag by Next for the meantime. This one is ideal as it’s a decent size, is black and will go with pretty much anything.
There you have it, my Autumn Wishlist 2016! I hope you enjoyed in and thank you Georgia for letting me share it with you all!
