Fall is my favourite time of year. Sure, you can give me a summer vacation any day and snow falling around me sure is pretty, but I find comfort in that middle ground. You know when the temperature drops a few degrees so you can throw on a down filled jacket and a chunky knit without shivering or sacrificing your style?
As you know Winter comes late in the UK. We get to enjoy an Indian summer followed by a mild autumn showered in bright golden leaves, a backdrop of skeleton trees and a subtle chill to the air. This look was inspired by Autumn Comforts. For me, the ultimate chilled look is a pair of jeans and a sweater. Although these are wardrobe basics I choose designs that are trend led.
I’m obsessed with these Tom Girl jeans. The bleached out denim and rips tick all the insta-cool boxes for me. I’m also a massive fan of the low-slung hip riders with relaxed girlfriend leg. Nobody wants to lounge around in a pair of tight skinnies, am I right?. My AHH-MAZINGLY soft jegging sweater knit is made of the softest chenille fabric. The design is long on my arms and cropped slightly higher on the hips so as not to drown me in fabric.
I’ve paired it with the ultimate outdoor jacket. The Quilted Parka doesn’t let in a smidgen of cold, which is great for keeping out wintery winds. It’s feel so snuggly. Footwear comforts are important to me as well and I fell in love with these Navajo inspired suede black booties. Comfort meets chic!
