Top Style Pins | August

Having just managed to get enough clothing together to get me through the spring and summer months I am now having to think about my (rather lacking) autumn/winter wardrobe. It may shock you girlies out there to know that I am not a shopping fan (unless it involves books or stationary, then I'm all over it!). Pinterest has been my biggest inspiration for flicking through what I may like to add to my wardrobe for the chillier months. These are the things that have caught my eye...

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I had brought some ripped jeans (sorry mum!) and I am really looking forward to wearing them in the autumn with a sloppy knit, mid-heel ankle boots or converse. I have had my eye on some white converse for a while and may have to invest soon.

In my humble opinion you cannot beat a good pair of skinny jeans and a nice over-sized knit. I think it is something, if done right, can look timeless and suit most shapes and sizes. Plus you can dress it up or down with boots or heels. This is a look I will certainly be going for as the temperature drops again.

I adore colour and as I have got older I have become less afraid to just take the bull by the horns and go for it. In autumn I love to accessorise with colour and think that a bright knitted scarf or hat can really perk up your outfit!

What will you be putting in your autumn wardrobe?


  1. I love the pop of colour idea - I have a bold green coat that's vintage-style and very cute but I'm always too shy to wear something so bright out. Might have to take the bull by the horns as you say!

    1. You should go for it! Once you start wearing colour you can't get enough! I used to live in black but these days I am probably a little too over the top - especially with bright reds! :-) x

  2. How do I wear a big knit without looking like a small child who stumbled into Hagrid's wardrobe? Riddle me that!

  3. Ha ha ha! You create such an image! Maybe I actually look like that... I may develop a paranoia now! I feel comfy in my skinny jeans and a large jumper, I can eat more ;-) xx
