As the weather turns and the leaves brown, the mornings have become crisp and the air fresh. I usually love summer and the warm weather, but recently I’ve been excited for the change of season. Autumn is cozy layers, warm tea and freshly baked treats, dark berry colours, the smell of slow cooked stew pervading the house, and long afternoons curled up with a book or Netflix. Bring. It. On.
The dawn of Autumn is also an excuse to shop, and I’ve been doing just that – stocking up on versatile pieces to see me through the colder months. Resisting the temptation to buy has been difficult lately, with all the sales on at my favourite stores. These pieces are all great for layering, and work well together. My aesthetic is generally one of simple layers in neutral colours, and this Autumn’s buys are no exception. I’ve been enjoying bringing them out one by one, working these pieces amongst the clothes I already own. When shopping for anything, I always try to consider how the item will fit into my existing wardrobe. Of course, some things I’ll just love and have to have, no matter how frivolous. But for the most part, I only buy something if I can see how it fits into what I already own.
I’ve also nabbed a couple of basics while sales have been on – in particular, the above Country Road black jeggings (my fourth pair – they wear well, but I wear them multiple times a week for work), and the Country Road singlets, which are useful for layering and extra warmth. I’m hoping this cut will work under racerback tops – will let you know how I go!
Anything you’ve got your eye on for the changing seasons – be it Autumn or Spring? x
