Embracing Autumn

3 Sep

Hello wonderful readers. Are you in as much shock as me? It’s September already!! I will say in total cliché style that I don’t know where the year has gone. We’ve had a lovely summer and us English roses were very fortunate to have a heat wave in July.

Speaking of waves, it’s now time to start waving goodbye to our summer wardrobes, unless you’re jetting off in the next couple of months for a last ditch week of sunshine you lucky beggars!

This summer was all about embracing the new; pastels, prints, brights, and well colour… to my mono-boring clothing collection. I very happily adopted lots of new make-up, nail polishes, clothes, accessories and two kittens. Now it’s getting colder my mind is shifting to; snoods, boots, hot chocolate, coats and everything else in the quest for warmth.

However I still want to add some new so this is all about embracing Autumn.

I usually love wines, plums, warm greys and blacks and I picked a few items to mirror this in an outfit i’d wear back to college or university.

My essentials clothing wise is the ability to layer clothes. Wearing some black ‘boyfriend jeans’, a short sleeved wine jumper with a ‘peter pan’ collar and warm grey ‘waterfall’ cardigan. I like to turn to warmer, richer colours and these reflect some items that would turn my head in a shop. The Jeans are multifunctional as is the cardigan.

Teaming with some classic Doc Martin boots and a novelty bobble hat. I love my hats, I have a small knitted horde of them they’re cute, comfy and practical in the colder months which is perfect for me as I get ear ache very easily. The boots will be a great companion for my warm tootsies all I need is some fluffy thermal socks!

bagring

Keeping all your supplies handy in a black leather crossover bag, lets face it us girls like to carry around a lot of crap. Double that if you’re going to college or university as you have books and supplies and all sorts! A big bag for me is a necessity and I really like this one as it plays on the school satchel style. As far as the ring goes, who doesn’t like a statement pieces of jewellery.

My make-up palette will consist of browns, coppers, plums, berry reds and blacks. Here is some of my wishlist items.

I really want to pick up the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pomegranate Punk, followed by the infamous Kate Moss Lipsticks in the shades 107 & 111, I will be purchasing the MUA Chocolate Box shadow trio and the Sugar Plum Kohl Liner by Sleek – look at the swatch! So pretty!

What are your autumn essentials this year?
