Oh Autumn, you are magnificent. The palette of dreams and the feeling of change in the air is something i will never grow tired of and is the reason why Autumn is my favourite season. The fact that the fashion for autumn is always magnificent may also have something to do with it too, as i am a girl who lives for beautiful boots, gorgeous chunky knitwear and captivating coats.
I’ve teamed up with Great Plains this week and chosen my favourite items for autumn.
Florals for Autumn
I think I am a girl who actually prefers a dark floral palette than summery toned florals. For me they are intrinsically more wearable, a little less pretty-pretty and more approachable and re-mixable.
This gorgeous floral print ruffle skirt is autumn personified. The dark colours contrast beautifully with the frilly cut of the skirt making this such a wonderful item to dress up or down and has the girly cut mixed perfectly with the navy and copper print. Because there are a number of colours in this skirt, all based on a neutral background of navy, it means there are many different remixing options to be worn with it.
I love the idea of mixing in some greys or creams for the top half or also adding in some burgundy, whether that be with a coat or some boots. All of those colours will just make this skirt sing!
Is there anything more wonderful than an autumnal coloured jumper/sweater?!
I have to say i am a knitwear floozy and flirt with different jumpers regularly, but this rusty orange jumper with swing sleeves has barely left my back since it arrives. Some days i’ve even been getting home and changing out of that days outfit, opting for comfort indoors of course, and popping on some comfy leggings and this gorgeously comfy mohair jumper.
Be sure to check out the great selection of ladies jumpers Great Plains has, because if this beauty is anything to go by, then they’re fabulous i can assure you.
As well as working seamlessly with the skirt (and my indoor leggings for loungin’ around!) this jumper works perfectly with jeans and also culottes. I plan on wearing it with my navy culottes and baker boy hat really soon.
I added some black in to the mix with my boots and jacket, as i love navy and contrasting black at the moment.
The biker jacket always lends a touch of toughness to a girly look. which for me, is the ideal balance of feminine and masculine in an outfit.
One of my favourite styles right now is knee high boots and midi skirts. It’s a revival of that 70’s look that never goes out of fashion and, I find, makes wearing skirts extremely practical and easy(no legs on show, no worries about tights, legs covered from the cold.. the practicalities go on).
The navy bag and bobble earrings finish the look and bring in all the colours from throughout the outfit.
My favourite Autumnal outfit so far this season, and i can’t wait to wear each piece separately too.
