Your Summer to Autumn Wardrobe

I've been thinking a lot lately about what key pieces I'd like to see in my Autumn/Winter Wardrobe this year. Maybe it's the crappy weather we've been having or just time for a change, but  for whatever reason, my chunky knits and knee high boots have been calling! For my Autumn/Winter wishlist you can see my post here.

But today I've been exploring my Summer pieces and how to turn them into sufficient Autumn outfits. I think we'd all like to save money where we can, so I'm going to show you how I will be making my Spring and Summer buys of 2011 suitable for the fast approaching chilly weather...

You can see me wearing this skirt and shirt combo here back in April. For the cooler weather I will be throwing on a loose knit jumper and buttoning the shirt to the top. Black tights and black wedge boots keep the look smart.


I've loved wearing my denim high waisted shorts this summer! They look great with a floaty blouse tucked in. I'm going to be wearing them right through to winter too by adding thick tights, a chunky cardigan and a scarf. And a pair of cream socks sticking out of suede brown boots to keep my toes warm.


I love the ditsy print on this dress so instead of wearing it alone I will be layering up with a leather jacket, knee high socks (and the glasses are optional!) Geek chic

So there you have it! Cost cutting ideas to turn your sheer floral flimsy clothes into brand new cosy outfits ready for some serious leaf kicking, cocoa drinking and conker collecting!
I think Autumn is my favourite season!

How will you be preparing fashion-wise for the new season? Splashing out on new items or digging out your old jumpers from last year?

  3. This is such a great post! I always feel a bit uncomfortable in the winter because I get so cold and I just chuck on a load of shapeless layers to keep warm. I'm going to get a bit more fashion concious this winter. Fashionable yet warm :)
