Autumn Wishlist '16

Now that it is if officially Autumn (by a couple days at least) I can officially begin my new season shopping, guilt free right?! 

September the 22nd came whizzing 'round, as did the first day of Autumn and I honestly couldn't be more happy about it. Sure, you'll hear me constantly talk about my love for summer and the hot weather but let's be real - when is it really 'hot weather' in England - which is why whenever fall comes knocking my entire spirit changes and my quest of coats intensifies.

(BTW: Second paragraph in and I'm already talking about the weather... could I get any more British, Seriously? Any second now I'm going to be sipping a tetley's tea whilst passionately discussing Brexit!)

I say this every year, and I said it literally half an hour ago to my mum but no fashion will ever make me quite as happy as autumn fashion does. There is nothing quite like neutral, autumnal colours and OTK boots and cute little skirts that you can just about still get away with without freezing to death, no, nothing quite like it at all. 

So without further ado, let's get into my Autumn Wishlist that may be more 'wish' than 'buy' but hey ho...
(Can you tell I have a slight gucci obsession?)

This season with my style I'm kind of taking on a few trends; sporty chic, dressed up/dressed down, girly & edgy. I'm always such a big fan of mixing trends for example I love the look of the two piece skirt and jacket styled with the leather sock boots that add such an edgy vibe. 

Then I love the classic look of an oversized white shirt with a fun leopard print pocket paired with straight legged jeans and casual trainers. 

Another item I'm completely obsessed with is the baker boy hat! It was one of those moments where I saw it, wanted it and well, needed it. I think no matter how many people made fun out of Keira Knightley when she rocked a baker boy hat in the movie 'Love Actually' she definitely had the right idea, maybe just a few years too early. The Baker boy hat has taken over the industry as the accessory too have and I'm so on board. This one from the GIGI X TOMMY HILFIGER collection has me completely head over heels in love and its currently in my asos basket (among many other items!).

Doesn't that gorgeous army green blazer just scream out "buy me". No? Tell me it's not just me! I saw this on the Topshop website and instantly knew I needed (wanted) it in my wardrobe. It is very Balmain like, and although a Balmain blazer isn't in my budget (atm), that doesn't mean I can't get a look-alike. I think a lovely blazer like this one would look so cute worn with a pair of black skinny jeans, over the knee boots and and black knit jumper! Keeping it classy and letting the blazer speak for itself. 

As I said earlier, my gucci obsession is getting a little out of hand. Ever since Alessandro Michele took over as creative director of Gucci the brand has had a total makeover  and has gone from being a bit of a no-go brand to the brand. I'm utterly obsessed with the fun colours, the ruffles and frills and omg the velvet ahhh can we take a moment!! A whole blog post talking about my gucci obsession may have to happen...
