Well even though we seem to be having some odd tropical weather at the moment Autumn is well and truly upon us. My favorite season. Cosy nights in, Candles burning, Relaxing baths,Walks in the sunshine but wrapped up warm, Bonfire night and the start of a New seasons wardrobe. I wanted to share with you my top 5 staple items in my Autumn wardrobe! Perfect items to transition between the seasons.
- Ankle Boots
An absolute essential item for me! I think I own about 10 pairs in all different colors & heels. A little bit more than a shoe but not quite a thigh high boot to keep those tootsies warm. They are so versatile. You can dress them up with a pair of tights and a dress or keep it casual with your jeans. I got myself not one but two pairs of leopard print ones a few months ago from Simply Be and New Look I LOVE them!

2. Lightweight Jumpers
As we have experienced the last few weeks, Autumn isn’t always cold but there can still be a chill in the air and a light layer is needed. I love having simple lightweight jumpers which can be worn over dresses, with midi skirts or with jeans to give me that extra bit of cover. I also like to use them this time of year to enable me to keep wearing some of my summer dresses. You can find all different colours and prices, one to keep an eye out for in your favorite high street store.
3. Faux Leather Jacket
Its not quite time for a coat but those chilly mornings and autumnal evenings sometimes a jumper is just not enough to keep you warm. I think these jackets are so reasonable in price, they instantly add something special to your outfit and can be worked in so many ways. An affordable alternative to those of us who cant quite justify a leather jacket.
Again another item which can be easily layered depending on what the temperature is. Pinafores can be worn for a casual day out with the kids or a day in the office. Perfect staple for you wardrobe this Autumn.
Lets be honest – a year round staple! You cant go wrong with a good pair of jeans. I always sway towards a good pair of skinnie’s but just lately i’m really liking Mom jeans. These New Look Mom jeans are my current favorites. They have a stripe down the side which also gives them a slight edge.
Jeans are always an item I struggled to shop for. They never quite fitted right, too big, too small, too baggy, too tight, to low cut, too high cut, the list is endless. I do however highly rate the Topshop Jamie Jeans. They are not the cheapest on the market but they are such a great fit and have lasted ages! A cheaper alternative is the Tesco F&F £12 Jeggings – they are fantastic and for that price definitely worth a try!
