07.09.2018- Most Wanted: The Early Autumn Edit

Friday, 7 September 2018

I think it’s safe to say that we’re easing into autumn now, and with the start of the new season comes the perfect opportunity for a bit of a reboot. I think it’s the habitual back-to-school feeling of this time of the year which affords the ideal chance to take a step back and remix things, in whatever capacity that might be. As well as taking stock of some other life bits and bobs, I’m thinking about making some strategic investment buys to see me through the coming months and beyond:

Cable Slit Wool Blend Sweater, £59, & Other Stories/Ash Indigo Denim Jeans, £125, Toast/Merino Crew Neck Jumper, £55, Arket/Greyhound Jumper, £42, Warehouse/Oversized Structured Plaid Blazer, £129, & Other Stories/Kin by John Lewis Foldover Backpack, £55, John Lewis/Alex Monroe Gold Plated Alphabet Necklace, £135, Liberty/Pale Pink Mohair Sweater, £139, Whistles/Roman Coin Hoop Earrings, £26, Hush/Get Your Sh*t Together Journal by Sarah Knight, £12.99, Oliver Bonas. 

This boxy knit from & Other Stories is a real winner, especially as the colour is perfect for autumn. I invested in a few jumpers from & Other Stories last winter and they held up really well (after numerous washes too!), so definitely a wise investment for those hard-earned pennies. Somehow new jeans also always feel synonymous with the start of a new season, and I always find autumn a great opportunity to experiment with different fits and washes. There are plenty of options hitting the shops at the moment, but this pair from Toast have really caught my eye, I think predominantly because they’re so simple and versatile, with the dark wash proving perfectly practical too. Another basic but brilliant buy comes in the shape of this striped knit from Arket- one of those everyday essentials which is ideal for reaching for at this inbetweeny time of the year. 

With a touch of cute character, this greyhound design from Warehouse is another great investment, and as ideal for a work wardrobe as it is for a weekend one. Tapping into a tiny bit of a trend, this check jacket from & Other Stories is the perfect one stop shop for the change in season, and another great staple which would well and truly earn its keep in the cost-per-wear calculations. I’ve been on the hunt for a new, sturdy backpack for what feels like ages now, and at long last I think I’ve found one which I’m going to plump for. This John Lewis number promises to accommodate all of my everyday essentials, and the boxy design makes it sturdy enough to withstand the daily commute. 

If you’re after a real new season treat, this this exclusive Alex Monroe for Liberty necklace has got to be at the top of the list. With the personal touch, it would make a lovely present too. It goes without saying that a new season drop from Whistles is always worth looking forward to, and this autumn they’ve really come up trumps. This pink knit is pure pastel perfection, and a really refreshing alternative from so many of the darker hues which tend to dominate my wardrobe as we descend into winter. 

Another accessory update comes in the shape of these earrings from Hush- a lovely, purse friendly option for an instant style update. Finally, and perhaps the most practical update of all, Sarah Knight’s recently released Get Your Sh*t Together journal from Oliver Bonas- a perfect proactive purchase to help with making the most of September as the optimum time for a fresh start.
