My Autumn Wardrobe

I thought that I'd show you how I've updated my wardrobe so far for autumn (with some not-great photography!). I would say that I bought a few of these items, mainly the bag and blazer, because I had an interview to dress for but that's maybe a little bit of an excuse. I've loved the Clarks bucket bag since we first had it in store in tan last year and as soon as I knew it was coming in the burgundy colour I had a feeling that I'd end up buying it! I bought the floral scarf from Zara to tie in with the purple colour in the bag for the interview but I didn't even end up wearing it on the day. Needless to say I've worn it almost everyday since then so it was definitely not a wasted purchase. So far this autumn the scarf and bag seem to have become my statement pieces that I've managed to work into most outfits.

Bag - £69.99 Clarks (although I got staff discount off of that!)
Scarf - £17.99 Zara

Cream blazer - £29.99 H&M
This is the least autumnal piece that I've bought and was probably the last of the summer season stock in the shop. I really did only buy this for the interview however I've always kind of wanted a light coloured blazer and I've worn it to work most days recently instead of my black one.

Grey jumper - £14.99 H&M
Purple t-shirt - £6.99 H&M
As soon as the weather turned a little bit chilly I was desperate to buy a jumper! I opted for this speckled grey one from H&M, I had one quite similar a few years back and I hardly ever had it off. A jumper like this is so easy to wear whether it's dressed down with jeans and scarf or dressed up a bit with a blazer and statement necklace. Whilst in H&M I also bought this purple tee; just more things to tie in with the colour of my bag and scarf. 

Patterned sleeveless shirt - £3 H&M sale
Necklace - £3 Matalan
Earrings - £1.50 Dorothy Perkins
Again, it was the burgundy colour in this shirt that drew me towards it and when I saw that it was only £3 in the sale it wasn't really a hard decision whether to buy it or not. I've worn it to work once, buttoned up and tucked into black skinny jeans with the cream blazer. I also can't pass up bargain jewellery! I picked up these wee bargains when I was at home in The Borders lately, I love the ribbon chain necklace.


  1. The bags great! I got it in cream in the summer with my discount as well of course! great buys, that scarf is lovely :) x

  2. Love the scarf, it's gorgeous. The bag is lovely too :)! Hope the interview went well.
