I unlike S am not a fan of the seasonal change from summer to Autumn. love the snuggly inside feeling and watching the trees change but I avidly detest the cold and of course you know it’s only matter of time before Winter is knocking on the door. BUT I am however like many females a fan of having an excuse to revamp the wardrobe and change up my style.
Which brings me to such. I’m casual, like seriously casual and have been since a young age. I did the whole pink, floral girly thing, over did it and couldn’t face looking at the colour for the last 20 years (wow 20 years how the hell did I get this old?) I like simple dresses, skinny jeans, tank tops, denim anything, sneakers, boots and I’m a big fan of monochrome although I will go colour crazy if need be. I will occasionally wear a heel but if you didn’t gather by my ‘Alias’ I’m rather tall and a little clumsy so wedges or a healthy flatform is my go to. I will surrender to wear a pretty textured or tailored dress if an event calls for it but as soon as I get home it’ll be off within seconds (to change I mean!) I’ve scoured numerous look books of my favourite and some new designers and here is my Autumn wish list.
Fancy foot work
Although I live for a good pair of black boots I though I should branch out this year and potentially add a splash of colour.
Clockwise from Lft Acne Clover, Acne Donna, Opening Ceremony Glitter Suede Chelsea, Opening Ceremony Brenda
Converse x Missoni Auckland Racer Sneaks. The prettiest men’s shoes I’ve ever seen.
It has just dawned on me that I need a pair of Timberlands why? Because I saw Aila Wang (yes the 4 year old Niece of Alexander Wang) wearing them.
Now you can even custom design your own click on the pic. Like my red?
Pretty Picture Pants
A have never owned printed pants and I feel this Autumn I need to invest in something a little more fun than black or dark blue skinny jeans.
Acne Karma Currency Pant.

There are a few types of Autumn/Winter Jackets I feel I “need” a bomber, a blazer, a ‘going-out’ one (very different to a blazer ahem!), a rain jacket, a coat (coming later I’m sure), an anorak and well the list goes on . . .
