Autumn Winter 17 Wishlist - red tartan jacket

My Autumn Winter 17′ Wishlist

My favourite seasons of the year are Autumn and Winter. I love it when the weather gets cooler, the leaves start to fall and the coats start arriving in the shops!

Dressing for this time of year is the best! I love the layers, how it’s perfectly ok to wear all-black every day, and the rich colours.

I was planning to do some shopping this month as I have hardly any Autumn Winter clothes. However, I then signed up for No Spend October *argh*. I put together a little wishlist of the things I’ve got my eye on and thought I’d share it with you. Now I just have to hope they are still in stock in November!

The Autumn Jacket

So you already know my favourite season is Autumn. You might also know that my favourite colour is red. And that my favourite print is tartan. Therefore it goes without saying that this jacket from River Island is at the top of my wishlist! I am in LOVE with it.

I also love the fact that tartan is ‘in’ this year – however, let’s be honest here – it’s never been ‘out’ of my wardrobe!

The Blazer

In the past, I’ve always shied away from blazers as I felt that they made me look very masculine.

However, I’ve recently come to appreciate how good a well-tailored blazer can look. I love this one from Zara.

I’m a ‘bigger’ girl (size 14) and I have boobs yet am quite short. This, unfortunately, means that a lot of the blazers in the shops don’t fit me very well. That being said I have discovered the joy of having a high street item adjusted to fit me by a local seamstress. And let me tell you I will never go back to simply wearing blazers straight off the rack!

Simple fitting adjustments make the basics look like they were made bespoke and they are so much more flattering.

The Skirts

I don’t actually wear skirts in the summer months. I don’t like my legs without tights and the chafe *oh god the chafe*. And so for me, skirts come into their own in the Autumn. I love pairing shorter skirts with black tights and ankle boots. Both of these beauties are from Zara. You can find the contrasting tweed one here, and the pearl-studded one here.

The Jumper

Autumn Winter 17 Wishlist - red tartan jacketOh Knitwear – how I love you so! Forgiver, concealor of food-babies, easer of office-aircon. There’s always room in my wardrobe for more knitwear! Especially when it’s red, slouchy and off-the-shoulder like this New Look beauty!

The Boots

Autumn Winter 17 Wishlist - red tartan jacketMy obsession with ankle boots shows no signs of abating this year. I have worn most of mine out and so will be replacing them this year. I’m thinking of a pair of black chelsea boots like these, plus a heeled pair too. I still have my gorgeous tan and leopard print ankle boots from Joules as well – they look even better now they’ve aged.

The Bag

I don’t actually NEED a new bag but I do LOVE this Accessorize one. The military-esque style is right up my street and I love the embellishments.

The Bling

I’m not a big jewellery wearer but these pieces from Accesorize’ Autumn Winter range caught my eye – I love how they look like pieces of vintage jewellery. They look like family heirlooms rather than high-street buys. I’d even get my ears repierced for these earrings!

And so that’s it – my Autumn Winter 17 Wishlist. What do you think? What’s on your wishlist this Autumn?

    Gah, love love love it all! I have the same “boob but short” problem, but blazers work a charm for that somehow in my case (mysterious…)! What never works for me is slouchy jumpers, I know…:( I look like a potato in them! I absolutely adore the skirts and the boots though (and a combo of the two, amazing!) πŸ˜€ time to go autumn shopping!!

    I like the boots. I think that boots go with most things and people.

    • Reply bettertogetherhome October 3, 2017 at 8:52 pm

      And very practical for the London winters!

    I love the red autumn jacket. It’s clearly my fave πŸ™‚ Oh, and the black skirt too, teamed with some bling, because bling never goes out of style, does it? πŸ™‚

      The red jacket is my favourite too!

    I have to admit I don’t know what will come of autumn in Portugal, I’m sure we’ll feel it a bit chillier than we’re used to. That said I’ve always loved Autumn and wrapping up in the UK.

      Oh gosh I don’t think I could live somewhere with mild season changes ha!

    I can relate to this post so much omg. I have the same problem with chafing (we call it chub rub πŸ˜‚) but I’m obsessed with boots as soon as the temperature drops a little bit.

      haha! I deffo have the chub rub going on! x

    What a lovely obsession of particular fashion, like you I’m not a fan of jewelry, one pair of earrings will be fine. and Oh I also love the print tartan, I’ve always searched the vest or jacket but I haven’t found something that fits me. The blazer though, super sexy I love it.

    • Reply bettertogetherhome October 4, 2017 at 12:18 pm

      Thanks! I love tartan too – I used to have a blazer with that pattern πŸ™‚

    The skirts will looking AMAZING on you! I need to go find some myself. Yeah, I’m quite the same with Jewelery. I tend to lose my earrings, so I wear nothing but different color pearls, and only have a few other type of earrings!

    • Reply bettertogetherhome October 4, 2017 at 12:18 pm

      Thanks! I tend to lose earrings too and now I have left it so long between wearing pairs that I need my ears re-pierced!

    I’m feeling the chill in the air and definitely need a new school run coat. I like a really long one which keeps my bum warm! Like you i’m a 14 and blazers are always too tight on the bottom but too big on the shoulders – the frustration of being a pear shape!

    • Reply bettertogetherhome October 4, 2017 at 8:29 pm

      It was so cold today! Nearly froze in my biker jacket! Now i’m on no-spend until October I can’t even get a winter coat this month!

    I have just bought some new ankle boots, so toasty for autumn time. I really need a few new jumpers, love the red one x

    That coat reminds me of a coat I saw at a Sunday market while in London…. need to get one

    I really like the coat. It would be great for the season.

    OMG I love that coat – some fabulous items and the earrings are gorgeous. Now I am in the mood for shopping ❀️❀️

    Nice blings. For me, a scarf is all in the wishlist. Haha, it’s the only piece of fashion I will never get enough off during fall and winter.
