The turn in weather this week and the impending return to school has got me thinking about what items to add to the autumn/winter wardrobe. Having a limited budget means I need to shop carefully, buying just a few key items that will tie in with what I already have, while giving a nod to the key trends of A/W 12.
|Wallis Camel Military Coat – £65|
The military look is in the shops again this winter. I’m not normally a fan but I love a nice mac and this coat is a nod to the mac but warmer. I always buy a winter coat every year. I love how you can throw a nice coat over anything and you look ‘together’…it’s the ultimate forgiving item of clothing.
|Vince Camuto Brass Lead $69.99 (approx £45)|
I am so in the market for a pair of grey/taupe ankle boots. The other week, I came across Vince Camuto’s website via Poppy’s Style. They have an amazing sale on at the moment but unfortunately don’t deliver outside the US. However, they tell me they are coming to the UK very soon in a tie up with Kurt Geiger. In the meantime, my US bestie may be taking a delivery on my behalf…I’ll be in touch Megan!
Purple is huge this autumn winter. It’s one of my favourite colours so I’ll be investing in a pair of jeans like these ones from H&M. As with most autumns, jewel colours abound so bottle green, deep reds and vibrant blues are in all the shops.
Owl print is the pattern to purchase right now…there are lots of gorgeous options out there including this scarf from ASOS:
|Owl Print Snood – £12|
And had you heard about the Marks & Spencer Owl Print dress that sold out in days just the other week? Hopefully more stock will arrive soon but if you can’t wait – it’s available on eBay at a vastly inflated price.
|M&S Limited Owl Dress – £35 (out of stock currently)|
|Zara Studded Shopper £59.99|
|Vivid Patent Studded Ballet Flats – £28|
