As much as I love dressing for the winter, doing outfit posts at this time of year is possibly one of my least favourite things. I get to wear some of my all time favourite combinations and yet, when the daylight hours start drawing in at around 3pm, it means it’s kind of a nightmare actually photographing any of them. We finally managed to shoot this hazy, super casual outfit just as the last of the light was disappearing last week.
I mentioned a little while ago in my autumn wish list that I had started looking for a replacement for my favourite, but now falling to bits pom pom beanie. The original was super cheap, but it was better than all of the others I’d seen on the high street with its snug fit and huge fuzzy pom pom. I’ve been cursing myself ever since it started looking tatty for not getting a few backups.
I searched everywhere, from cheap to high end, but I just couldn’t find another which quite measured up to it. They just weren’t the same. Then, as if by some winter miracle Irisie got in touch and there, sitting in their accessories section, was my favourite hat! It’s kind of funny how attached you can get to something that you only picked up on a whim, but I’ve definitely ordered myself a few backups now!

Is there a more perfect time for wandering around in a heavy black cape than Autumn? Crunching through the leaves and swishing around is made all the more fun when you’re wrapped up in your witchiest attire. I’ve been searching for a good one for ages, and I think I may have finally found the perfect one in this Necessary Evil cloak from Kate’s Clothing. It’s made from a wonderfully thick wool blend, giving it this beautifully dramatic drape and the weighty material effortlessly keeps the chill in the air at bay. What I love most though is that I’ve finally found a cape with a hood, I feel like Little Red Riding Hood’s witchy older sister!
The Rogue + The Wolf are a brand that have been on my radar for a while now, I love brands which combine fashion and technology and their 3D printed jewellery showcases just how well this can be done. Printing pieces from both plastic and more traditional mediums such as steel, their collections are beautiful, unique and highly attention grabbing.

I don’t think anything makes me happier than the return of leather jacket weather and getting to dig out my favourites again. There really is nothing like throwing on a killer leather jacket when you’re feeling a little rubbish, it adds instant cool and always makes me feel like I could take on the world. This Rick Owens jacket is the epitome of that, you just can’t have a bad day whilst wearing this beauty.
These polished black corian arrow earrings from Cindy Leper are like the jewellery equivalent of that, and I don’t ever want to take them off. I’ve never felt more like a warrior princess than I have with these through my ears. They’re striking in their modern yet primitive design and so beautifully crafted, they’re like wearable pieces of art.
I’m not usually much of a fan of slogan tees, I think more often than not they can be a bit naff, but I just couldn’t resist this one. The print and lettering are simple, but interesting, and it’s the softest finish on a great faded cotton/viscose blend tee. It satisfies both my inner pessimist and my sarcastic nature, plus it’s also pretty appropriate with everything that’s going on here in the UK right now too.

Cooler weather calls for heavier fabrics, interesting textures for layering and stand out jewellery to add a little sparkle to the upcoming grey days. I live for Autumn dressing, and despite being sad to say goodbye to the warmth and sunshine for the year, getting to shop for cosy knits and accessories never fails to put a smile back on my face.
I’ve already begun searching for a good replacement for my favourite pom pom beanie, it’s starting to look pretty tatty now but I just can’t bring myself to get rid of it. It’s the cosiest hat I’ve ever owned, and I love the chunky knit and giant pom pom. Seriously, if you guys see anything like it please drop me a link! For now, the closest I’ve found is this ribbed beanie from Topshop with a cute faux fur one. I’m hoping that when it arrives it’s at least half as snug as my favourite, otherwise I’ll just have to continue wearing the old one until it falls to pieces!
I know this is a wishlist, but I’ve actually already brought another item on this list too. As soon as I saw the triangular backpack it went straight in my basket. I’ve been craving an interesting looking backpack for years now, one that effortlessly combined function and practicality with style, and this is exactly what I’d been searching for. Sometimes it pays to wait for the perfect piece and it’s come along just in time for my trip to Thailand, where I know this is going to come in super handy when it comes to lugging my camera around.
A great pair of ankle boots are my favourite no matter what the season, but they really come into their own in the Autumn. I have too many pairs to count, but I love the ultra classic shape of this pair, plus the addition of the padded soles for extra comfort. I think my days of putting up with pretty but uncomfortable heels are long gone now!
