Before I had the children you would have always found me in dresses and tights in autumn. But for the past few years you’d mostly find me in jeans and baggy jumpers. I guess being a busy mums means that you can sometimes get stuck in a rut of throwing on the nearest outfit without much thought. I feel like dresses for everyday casual wear had become a little out of my comfort zone, but as soon as I put this outfit on it definitely felt like me…
My dress is from Warehouse and I love that the floral pattern is made up of such gorgeous autumnal colours. I really like the flute sleeves too which make the dress feel even more floaty and pretty.
The dress also has a little cut out detail on the back which I think is really cute. This is definitely the sort of dress that can easily be dressed up for a night out with some heels or worn casually.
My faux leather jacket is by River Island, but purchased from Very. I had a H&M faux leather jacket last year but I have gained a little bit of weight since then and it now it’s too tight around my arms. So I needed a new one and this one fits perfectly. I think that leather jackets are such a staple piece for autumn as they go with absolutely everything and keep you surprisingly cosy in the cold weather.
When it comes to boots I always struggle to find the perfect pair. I recently ordered three pairs from ASOS to try on and ended up keeping these ones. I like the classic chelsea boots style but really like that they are oxblood rather than the usual black or brown. I think that they will work with most outfits over the coming months.
What do you think to this outfit? What are your essentials for your autumn wardrobe?
Thank you for reading.
