19.09.2018- What I Wore Today #346

As we ease into autumn and the seasons start to slowly shift, I'm sure that I'm not the only one thinking about the practicalities of some new wardrobe additions. As I've touched on in a few posts before now, at this time of the year, I always tend to get rather swept up in a back to school sensibility, and in the past I've found myself going slightly shopping happy without really considering the practicalities of what I'm purchasing. Perhaps it's a sign of my getting older, but this year I've got a mental list of all of the essentials to make room for in my wardrobe, and, if I'm being completely honest, am largely prioritising comfort above and beyond anything else! Luckily enough, my recent trip away to Ireland gave me the perfect opportunity to road-test some new season staples before deploying them properly on home turf:

Raincoat- c/o Cath Kidston 
Trousers- lululemon 
Shoes- New Balance (via ASOS)

How fantastic is this raincoat? I've been in the market for something completely waterproof (as opposed to just being water resistant) for what seems like ages now, and the lovely team and Cath Kidston were kind enough to pop this in the post for me just before I headed off on holiday. Here it was well and truly earning its keep during our trek along the Waterfall Walk at Glenariff, and I'm pleased to report that it was more than up to the task of keeping me dry throughout what was a very rainy day. As well as that, the block colours add the perfect trendy touch too. Another practical favourite are these lululemon trousers- more specifically their On the Fly style, which are perhaps the most comfortable discovery I've made in a long while. They're perfect for travelling and activities, and are also smart enough to sneak into a work wardrobe too- well worth the investment!

Which practical pieces are you investing in for autumn?
