I could spend hours admiring all the jewel-toned jackets and boots. Feeling all the rich textures that summer will never know…velvet, brocade, wool, cashmere.
Autumn brings about a beautiful modesty, as we pile on layers, and do up buttons and laces. But it’s also about taking risks and choosing details that delight and surprise.
Necklace, Banana Republic
I love the velvet ribbon on this statement necklace! So many necklaces in this style have black ribbons, which make for a more dramatic look. I think the grey and blue tones make this piece more versatile – I’d wear it right through til Spring.
Sunglasses, Linda Farrow
Big sunglasses hide all manner of sins.
Detachable Collar, CollarMePrettyCo
Pardon my French 😉 this collar made me laugh out loud! This is a genius piece that makes layering effortless!
High Collar Blouse, Pixiemarket
This blouse is 100% up my alley. Things I love about it: the pattern. the high, ruffled neck. the ties on each sleeve. everything.
Unicorn Shirt, J.Crew
The pattern on this shirt reminds me of this famous tapestry. And if there’s one easy way to sell me something, it’s to slap on a medieval piece of art/make it a challenge to wear.
Ruffle Sleeve Sweater, Shopbop
Probability that this sweater will be highly unflattering: high
Probability that I will care: low
Lace-up Ankle Boots, Jeffrey Campbell
Dear GOD these are gorgeous. Are they boots or are they ankle corsets?
I don’t think I can go through October-November without these. Equally perfect for crunching leaves or to complement a witch costume on Halloween.
Velvet Ankle Boots, Topshop
Yellow. Velvet. The heel is high and the sex appeal is low. Were they made for me? Yes.
These also come in white. Sorry, wallet.
Contrast Ankle Boots, Zara
If I ever needed to justify this purchase, it would be too easy – “But, little voice in my head/ Azim / visa bill, these boots go with everything.” See? No arguing there!
