I can honestly say I love Autumn/Winter way more than Summer. I’m a girl that likes to be warm and cosy so I’m all for big jumpers and boots therefore you can bet I’m counting down the days until Summer officially ends.
I’ve been starting to slowly introduce new pieces into my wardrobe this last month in preparation for the cooler weather but I’m also trying not to spend an absolute fortune on a winter wardrobe.
Something I’m embracing more this year is florals; a pattern I would steer clear of in the past. I’ve purchased more midi and maxi dresses/skirts to pair up with chunky knits and oversized tees.
A colour I’m trying out more is white. When Freya was a lot younger I would never have risked wearing white but I’ve bought a few tops and t-shirts in this colour recently as it works with a multitude of patterns and denim.
Lastly I’m trying out more fitted styles of tops/jumpers/jackets. I’ve really struggled with my shape since having a baby and have stuck to oversized or baggier clothing. My confidence is slowly creeping back and I’m trying out new styles again. That includes this gorgeous fitted quilted jacket from Rydale Clothing. This style of jacket would have been too fitted for me in the past but now I actually wear it with confidence. I can’t wait for the cooler weather to continue so I can wear it all the time. I think it’s the perfect staple for winter that will work with dresses/skirts and even denim.
I’m willing the cooler weather to come but am happy to wait until after our holiday to Rome soon. After that, roll on Autumn/Winter so I can wear all the chunky knits and jackets.
