Autumn Wardrobe

Sunday, 16 November 2014

So whose loving checked shirts right now? Or plaid as we now all call them thanks to our american blogger friends! I got this one from Zara above, and I love it. Tomboy cool at it's best.

As promised to myself back in October I had a good clear out of my wardrobe and whilst I've not exactly devised a capsule wardrobe to see me through the winter, I did find it really useful in honing in on my style, taking note of what I seem to like and buy lots of (grey tops anyone?!) and what trends I might have bought into but never actually wore (hello charity shop). So with a clearer insight into what clothes I need for the rest of autumn and winter ahead, I've been shopping. 

I'm loving this 'shacket' from Topshop, which sounds more distasteful than it actually is. It's great for going over a tee or sweatshirt, rolling the sleeves slightly for a casual look.  

And also from Topshop, I bought this chunky cable knit card, which I've been wearing loads.

My beloved plaid shirt from Zara - I'd almost be tempted to get this in the Navy colour way too, but don't want to over do it! 

And finally on a bit of an impulse I bought this circular cut denim skirt from Oliver Bonas. I'd seen it in the sale in-store and was tempted but had been spending a lot recently so thought best leave it - but then I saw it further reduced online and it seemed meant to be. I've worn it a lot this week, my only bugbear is that I seem to be between sizes on this one and so it's slightly big around the waist, but figure if it drives me mad and I want to wear it lots then I can nip it in at the sides. I love it's simple pared back style, and perfect pockets!

All in all I'm pleased with my recent buys and have lots of wear out them already - there's lots more I could have bought at the moment, but right now it's time to stop buying clothes and turn my attention to Christmas shopping, it's that time of year folks! 


  1. I love your choices. I've bought a similar plaid shirt in red check from Topshop. It's so lovely and warm. x

    1. I nearly bought another check shirt in Zara yesterday, but stayed strong. It's so easy to get carried away with a trend but it's best done as a simple nod to it don't you think x
