I do feel the cold (apart from hot flush moments) so it doesn't take much to get me into jumpers and jackets. Now the mornings are cooler and the evenings drawing in, I have made a start on switching my wardrobe over and starting to choose a few new items and getting other things out of storage.
This is my first autumnal outfit this year that I thought would share with you. I'm really pleased with how it came together and this style could easily become my signature style!
I picked this jacket up in the John Lewis sale a few weeks ago - it is from Jigsaw and although it was on the summer sale rail I am pretty sure it must have been winter stock as it is wool and of course being Jigsaw it is very good quality. It wasn't actually reduced massively but as it fitted so well it seemed silly not to have it. On the John Lewis website they have very limited stock left - Flecked Tailoring Jacket £132 or there is similar here on the Jigsaw website - Marl Wool London Jacket £199. I also love this Herringbone Harris Tweed Jacket from Next £145. I like the flecked finish on these jackets rather than a solid navy, it adds a more casual style to wear with jeans.
My jeans are from French Connection from the Rebound Denim range. Now as you all know I love a designer jean but I also wear jeans all the time and I can't afford to have every pair at the top price point so I have to mix them up a bit. The rebound denim is my new favourite and I bought two pairs, these indigo ones and a black pair. They are super soft and comfortable and very flattering. They do lots of colours - take a look here and at £69 they are really good value.
My pale pink (or blush) jumper is new from Boden, I took advantage of their 20% discount recently. It is their Cashmere Crew Neck £98 and they have lots of other colours too. I am wearing it with my favourite scarf from last year - take a look here - they have lots of colours and I think mine is actually the gold.
My shoes are a classic style from Russell & Bromley and I wear them year after year and they never wear out! They are a sort of pre-boots style!
So that's my first proper move into autumn - have you started sorting your wardrobe out yet?
