I hate to be that person that gets excited for winter dressing, honestly, I do. There are few things I love more than being able to go out without tights on (weird, simple things- but summer dresses look so much nicer), not worry about how much of a marshmallow I’ll look in a winter coat, and know that a cardigan in my handbag will be an adequate way of keeping warm for the day. But, saying all of that- being able to wear what can only be described as a the worlds most gorgeous ‘tapestry’ printed skirt with an angora jumper and burgundy hat (totes falls colour, right?) is pretty satisfying- and is the ultimate wardrobe season to channel my love of sixties dressing.
Worn for a day out exploring London for my ASOS Student Guide (and there was a lot of exploring), this outfit made for the perfect Autumn get-up (if you cater for the sudden warm spell we seem to have had) and for a first time wear, these loafers did me pretty well indeed. On top of that, without sounding odd, I think this outfit channels my university style pretty well too. Being a non-drinker (I’m sure there’s another post for this somewhere) and a part-time retail worker I found myself saving a surprising amount of money at uni which I put towards more investment pieces, such as this skirt (although not quite as indulgent). Mixed in with some more on budget pieces (who can believe this jumper was just over £15?!) easy outfits like this one saw me through my brief time in the North, and still do when working around the capital- and thanks to places like ASOS, putting them together is pretty damn easy too.
