I’m a real summer lover. I’d say that I’m definitely at my happiest when the days are long, the sun is in the sky, I can spend all day outside and there’s a promise of BBQ food. However, autumn is now properly upon us, so I thought I’d share some of my current essentials that have been helping me to make my way into the colder months…My stripy jumper from GAP. It’s definitely knitwear weather, and I love my fun colours. I like to wear bright clothes whatever the season and autumn is no exception. Blue suede gloves from Accessorize for keeping my fingers warm! Whilst there are so many cute woollen gloves and mittens out there, I always manage to make holes in them within a few months so they seem like a bit of a false economy. Suede and leather gloves are where it’s at to get you all the way through to spring, year after year. The Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream softens and soothes my lips like no other. This cold and windy weather has made my lips really chapped recently so I’ve been slathering this on and they’ve been sorted out as quick as a flash. MAC’s Plumful lipstick – I love berry-toned shades, so I’ve been cracking this one out for seasonal-appropriate lips. Cosy scarves – this beautiful bronze one from Tie Rack is perfect for layering and when I want something super thick that will act like a wall against the wind, I whip out my old black and white college scarf and pull it right up around my face.And finally, my favourite jacket ever! It’s not super thick, so I basically use this in place of a cardigan, and wear it absolutely everywhere, whether it’s to work, going out to dinner, or just pottering around the city.
