Despite my protestations and wishing it wasn’t happening, there’s no point hiding away and denying that it’s now autumn.
I managed to stretch “summer” out for most of October, which is better than normal, but with our holiday and the mild weather I haven’t felt the need to really change up my wardrobe, apart from covering my legs more.
But now I’ve packed my summer wardrobe away, the clocks have gone back, and it’s almost November, even I can’t deny it’s autumn any longer!
The one good thing about autumn is different clothes, so here are some pictures of ways I intend to be dressing this autumn.
Drapy tops and cardigans with skinny bottoms
Mini skirts, thick tights and boots
And, of course, leopard print!

On the plus side I already have a lot of these items (or variations of) in my wardrobe, so hopefully I won’t need to buy a lot (I’m sure that won’t stop me though!)
Here are some shots of today’s clothes – my first truly autumnal outfit this year!
I’d love to hear what you’re wearing into the new season.
Thanks, as always for reading! x
With October has come a definite autumn feel – rain, wind, leaves falling off the trees and general non-summerness.
I don’t approve.
It does, however, galvanise the need for new boots, which can only be a good thing. Footwear purchases are always a good thing!
I’ve decided that my go to ankle boots for autumn winter are to be chunky black stompy ones; with a thick rubber sole and block heel.
They’ll look great with black skinnies (an A/W stalwart), give height under my patterned flares, and also work with girly dresses and thick tights for a touch of 90s grunge.
I ordered these London Rebel ones from the ASOS sale – £22.50
But I wasn’t entirely sure if they’re quite high enough.
So I had a scoot around.
Deichmann have some of contenders – I’ve had a few pairs of boots from there in the past and it’s definitely a site worth checking out.
These from New Look fit the bill.
Boohoo have these
So, just to be on the safe side, I ordered some more, to compare to the ASOS ones. All in the interest of doing the right thing. Because it would be awful for all involved (mainly the husband) if I didn’t get it absolutely right. After all, it’s a long time ’til spring and sandals time…
Turns out that, 4 parcels later, the ASOS ones were my preferred choice after all!
Here’s some inspo.
What will be your footwear of choice this A/W?
