So the colder weather is definitely upon us. This past week while my daughter has been on half term I’ve really enjoyed the beautiful Autumn colours on our daily park visits, but also really felt the chill. However I’m not prepared to step into full on winter wear yet, so I’m loving jumpers over dresses and skirts right now.  This also means shopping your wardrobe-  as is so popular this month with so many people doing no spend October. Using your favourite summer maxi dresses or last winters pleated maxi skirts which are still current,-  and look fabulous paired with sweatshirts or chunky knits & oversized coats. 

So I’ve made a couple of purchases this month which I know I will get lots of wear from. This  gorgeous oversized ‘Blonde’ slogan jumper from Zara I’ve already worn it so much!!  The jumper also comes with the slogan ‘brunette’ & ‘ginger’. 


As well as being super cosy it looks fab with this beautiful polka dot swishy skirt from H&M. Beware the skirt comes up quite small, but is really so pretty one of my favourite buys in a while. 


Back to my wardrobe I wore this floral midi skirt so much over the summer & will continue to do so with a sweatshirt this autumn. I love the contrasting colours with this navy sweatshirt from last year or with a black polo neck knit.

There are so many beautiful knits and skirts out there right now to work this look. Hopefully this post may inspire you to dig out last years knits to pair with your favourite summer maxi or skirt & work with what you’ve got. I have to budget my clothes spend so often try to update older outfits and this trend works perfectly for this. 

Here are some other stunning combinations I love.  All images for inspiration only. 

So why not pick and mix your wardrobe & create your own Autumn combinations.
