This time of year is my absolute favourite. There are so many things that make me happy for the autumn, but the best thing, other than the fact we’re officially in the run up to Christmas (yay!!), has got to be the fashion. The layering, chunky knitwear, the rich colour palette and the mix of beautiful textures, it all just makes me giddy with excitement.  I have to admit, I go a little bit crazy for all of the amazing goodness that fills the shops for the A/W season and I end up wanting everything! And for me there’s nothing better than the pitiful UK summer of the weather not being able to make its mind up finally coming to an end and the colder temperatures kicking in, making way for all of the gorgeous coats to get wrapped up in.

As regular readers will likely know I have an obsession with boots, and I wear them all year round regardless of the weather. The benefit of it being autumn is that there are an abundance of new styles of boots to choose from, which is an endless struggle for me as I want them all. But something else to know about me is that I also have a real thing for coats. I’m very much one for making my style statement with my choice of outerwear. All summer long I’ve been limited to lighter jackets, but now the temperatures have dropped my coat loving self is in its element. For whatever reason, I instantly feel more comfortable and confident when I have a coat on.

The particular coat I’m wearing here has been a long-time favourite of mine. Truth be told I’ve had it for about 6 years now, and still each and every Autumn I pull it out again. Regardless of the different trends each year, somehow I always end up reaching for this navy and bottle green checked style, complete with velvet trimmings and collar, which is a HUGE trend at the moment.  I’m also wearing a beautiful new scarf from Ilymix that has been a must the last couple of weeks as it’s been getting colder and colder here. I usually go for a checked pattern and was lacking a classic scarf like this. The fabric is so lovely and warm, and it’s a gorgeous shade of grey, perfect to go with any outfit.

Are you a fan of Autumn/Winter fashion?
