navy and white jumper | primark
black fine knit | h&m
navy fine knit | zara

hurrah the season of sweaters and scarves has arrived! I love the crisp air of autumn (and with it the excuse to layer up and burrow into cosy knitwear.) 

yes it's goodbye to the bikini diet- you'll find me tucking into all the casseroles and crusty bread I can find until january.

so before my annual winter hibernation begins I though I'd share a few new finds with you. I picked up a few new jumpers- I'm really loving fine knits which are a little less bulky so they're perfect basics to wear under statement coats or tucked into jeans. good places to track them down are & other stories, h&m, cos and zara. 

I also found a couple of chunkier jumpers, my favourite being the high necked camel one above that's a perfect in between... not too long but short enough to suit high waisted garms. it's not a skinny fit don't be fooled by the ribbing you can actually wear this without having to breathe in all day (phew.)

tartan and cream knitted scarf | primark

scarves are my heroes on days when I throw on a basic tee and jeans, they dress up even the simplest of outfits (and make it look like you've made a smidgen of effort when you haven't.)

these are both primark and I don't expect them to last long as all my others have bobbled and frayed after a few weeks of wear but they'll tide me over until I find 'the one' 

..I'm after a nice cashmere blanket type scarf so if you have any recommendation let me know!

fur stole | new look
faux fur chain bag | new look

it wouldn't be autumn without the arrival of faux fur into my life! I've never bought a stole before, every year I toy with the idea so I just went ahead and grabbed this long line version on a whim. I figure it could be an easy way to dress up my coats this season and it really wasn't a big spend so I won't feel too bad if it's not used often.

...lets take a moment to appreciate this furry new look bag though.. POW! I adore crazy coloured fur so I did a little squeal when I saw this bad boy. totally impractical maybe? but it was a bargain so I'm going to try and squeeze it into as many outfits as I can this month.

have you started adding to your a/w wardrobes yet? 

back soon

  9. Absolutely lovin' all of your knit choices! <3 Would love to see outfit posts on autumnal clothing <3

  10. I'm so excited to get back into my blanket scarves and my massive crochet snood things. I love and hate autumn all at the same time, the lack of daylight makes it so much harder to do things I love like ride my bike, but I live for the cool, crisp, clear bright days when a jacket, scarf and favourite ankle boots are perfection.

    1. YES! love the dark nights though- it's just the rain I can't bear! :) xx

  11. Those jumpers all look amazing! I have just unpacked all of my winter stuff and I am so excited!
