Outfit: October 13th – Stripes, Boots and a Hat





I was having camera issues the morning I took these, hence the mirror shots. But I couldn’t resist getting pictures of this outfit, I just loved it! It’s a variation of an outfit I wore the previous weekend, when I was visiting my friend. We went to meet up with her mom for a day out and lunch. I didn’t need the hat that day, and the boots I wore were black, but it’s a foundation I will return to again and again this autumn and winter I feel. I did need a hat this day, it was chilly and damp out in the morning and a wide brimmed hat can protect your hairstyle when it’s not actually raining.

Outfit: October 12th – The First Polo Neck (and a Cosy Scarf)







Clarks black heeled ankle boots

I feel like this scarf is going to make my Top 5 Most Worn Items this winter, even at this early stage. I was away this past weekend and one evening I neglected to take a coat out with me. I did have this scarf though, and wrapped around my shoulders like a shawl it kept me toasty warm. And the colours are just so me (and also so autumn). I love it.

This skirt got a lot of wear last winter (it was a Christmas gift so I didn’t have it last fall) and I think this year will be the same. Tights weather is here now which is just as well as this is definitely too short for bare legs/nude tights.

These boots are from Clarks and again, they are going to get a ton of wear because they are just so darn comfy. I spend a lot of time trying to find heels that are genuinely comfy (and by that I mean a pair I can walk around in all day/evening) and I have a couple of pairs but they are few and far between. I’m onto a winner with these though.

Outfit: October 7th – OTK Boots and a Hat!








New Look OTK black faux suede boots

So, remember that navy and white stripe oversize knit I pretty much lived in all spring? Well this is its plain grey twin sister, which I picked up for just £5 in the sale in the summer. Now that the cooler weather is here it’s really coming into its own and I can definitely see this (along with the stripe one) being worn all autumn and winter. Friday morning was dull and grey and drizzly, so it was definitely time to break out a hat. And the boots. And a cosy scarf. Don’t you just love the fall?

Outfit: October 6th – Red




I only had time for a quick mirror snap last Thursday morning – between putting washing in the machine and hanging it on the line, a quick bathroom clean, preparing breakfast and catching up on the previous night’s episode of Neighbours, the morning was busier than usual! These trousers have been for a little holiday at my sister’s house over the summer but now they’re back and will probably be in regular rotation again. I think this was the day we officially reached sweater weather. I was cold walking to work that morning, the chilly north wind didn’t help. And by this point I was deliberately crossing the street to walk in any sunshine that there is, just to feel a little warmth.

Outfit: October 5th – Burgundy and Navy






M&S metalic brogues

Another day, another short skirt. Even though it is October in that first week I was trying to avoid thick tights with boots – hence the brogues on the day these pictures were taken. And the flesh coloured tights earlier that week. This cute little cord skirt is too short to not wear tights with it, so thicker navy ones it was. It was still mild enough for a long sleeve t shirt (plus a jacket and scarf for walking to work) so tall boots probably would have been overkill anyway. I can see this look working well with ankle boots though…
