Autumn is an awkward season to dress for, I’m often finding myself leaving the house with a jumper and coat, then by lunchtime I’m sat in just a t-shirt as it’s suddenly super warm. Finding that ‘not too hot not too cold’ balance seems to be difficult in October.
Laurie and I didn’t dress specifically for a transitional A/W post but I think our outfits suit this blog topic pretty well.
I’m wearing my dogtooth check coat. I adore this coat, if you’ve watched my Berlin Vlog you’ll have seen I was incredibly happy with this purchase. It’s from a really lovely store called Edited, a German based brand that has the most beautiful VM with staff that are super cool and so helpful! I think this coat is going to serve me so so well throughout autumn as it’s not particularly thick so it’s great with just a shirt but also roomy enough to fit thick jumper underneath.
I also have on my Alexa Chung for M&S silky shirt that my mum picked up for me in the sale, for I think around £7 (chuffed!). Although it has slightly shrunk in the wash it’s such a staple, I reckon I wear it at least once a week. I paired with it my vinyl skirt from H&M, which surprisingly isn’t that sweaty or squeaky! Saying that, I can’t sit on leather seats whilst wearing it as I definitely have to peel myself off of it, not cute!
Jewellery wise, I have been gifted this necklace and bracelet from Adore Jewellery. They’re gold plated with Swarovski crystals, I love that they’re multi coloured so with a plain outfit they look really cool but also look great with a colourful outfit.
I’m also wearing my black ankle boots from ASOS, even though they’re not leather, they’re wearing so well. They do have a slight heel, which makes me even taller than I already am but luckily Laurie had big heels on too.
Laurie is wearing a Hiver 87 A.P.C t-shirt which is definitely a staple for autumn. Paired with a pair of dark wash kick flare jeans that fit her so well. They’re high waisted with a front seam that makes them look so classy. Teamed with a very classic cut leather jacket that honestly feels like butter it’s so lovely. I really like that it’s not a typical biker fit, but rather a similar centre front zip and popper. Definitely need a similar one for my wishlist! Laurie’s shoes are a platform pair of Gucci boots that she tells me are surpassingly comfy to walk in.
