Autumn Wishlist

The weather has definitely taken a turn in an autumnal direction this weekend. Finally, I can start to get excited for my most favourite season. Cosy nights in, drinking hot tea and eating comfort food. Halloween, Guy Fawkes and Christmas just around the corner. Lots of cosy clothes for layering in comforting fabrics of cashmere and soft wool. Craft projects put off, soon to be begun again. 

Autumn Wishlist '12

It seemed only fitting to start thinking about the pieces I would like to add to my wardrobe this season. I dream of a whole rainbow of pure silk blouses (if my bank account allows) and a warm woolen sweater to wear over the top of them. I don't think you can beat M&S for their affordable cashmere, I already have a couple of the cardigans and one sweater and am just waiting for my size to reappear in the black cardigan. I have just bought the Autograph joggers and although I wasn't sure how they would be when I ordered them, I can't praise them enough, my legs feel enveloped in cotton wool when I wear them.

Next on my immediate list is another pair of Ugg boots. Love them or hate them (I'm in the latter category), you can't beat them for the best warm comfort possible for your feet. In the winter I end up wearing them constantly, even if just too and from work (where I change into something different for the office). I have them for years and as my third pair are starting to look a little shabby, it is finally time for a new pair. I have my eye on the grey suede boots from Ugg, my next buy from Spartoo instead of my usual shoe shopping.

It goes without saying, that a new winter coat is a must. As is a simple skirt and selection of new dresses to wear throughout the autumn/winter seasons. And a new lipstick in a classic shade of red. All finished off with the cosy warm scents of the new Chanel Coco Noir spicy perfume and for my home, I will buy again the Tuberose fragranced candle by Diptyque.

  1. Love everything you have selected, especially that darling coat from Orla Kiely...the only problem is finding the £400+ to buy it. Where there's a will and all that :) I haven't smelt coco noir yet but if it smells as good as it looks it will be gorgeous, just right for the cold days and nights (my fave time too)
    Lovely post :)x

  2. What a great wishlist! I can't wait for Halloween and wearing a coat through the cold. I just hope I find a nice one as it's always impossible! x

  3. Lovely selection, I'd like a new winter coat but can never decide exactly what I want when spending so much money.

    I smelt the Coco Noir at the weekend when I was given a sample. It is beautiful and lasted for ages.

  4. I love love love that Orla Kiely coat! If only I had a full time job... gahhh. Totally agree, I love it when the season changes- winter is my favourite because the weather here is too unpredictable to give us a chance to wear decent summer stuff.. plus it's my birthday in Nov then only a hop skip and a job until christmas! Definitely the best time of year


  5. Awesome wish list! 6-8-9 are on mine too!!

  6. The cashmere joggers sound amazing! I'm craving cosy knits at the moment, still hoping for a few more sunny days first though.
