Moving houses has showed me that I own much more stuff that what I though and definitely that I need. However, after a big wardrobe clear out I feel like there are few things that I would like to add, because the one-out -one -in is an international rule right? Here I show you the fashion pieces that in which I would like to spend my money on instead of Ikea shelving units.
Pleated Midi Skirt. I used to think that midi skirts where not for me until I tried a top and skirt combo for my sister’s wedding this summer. I loved the retro Mad men vibe that it gives, they are really elegant and more comfortable than long dresses. The one I have in mind is a pleated Midi skirt like this Asos one, much more casual and that will pair perfectly with a jumper and a biker leather jacket for a classy yet modern look. For my feet I would probably choose block heel ankle boots. The only problem is that these type of skirts don’t get along with tights and blue legs under UK’s freezing weather are not the best look.
Funnel Neck. I am a big fan of big chunky jumpers for autumn, they are the best for those mornings when you don’t feel like wearing anything else than your duvet. With roller necks I feel like I am going to suffocate but funnel necks protect my throat from the cold and I feel much more free. I would like to invest in a higher quality one in cashmere or similar like this Asos one but I choke a bit after the thought of spending lots of money in a plain jumper.
Burgundy-Oxblood Cross Body Bag. I love reds and pinks all year round and burgundy is with no doubt my favourite colour for the cooler months. I am not a big fan of all black outfits so this colour is perfect for the season, dark enough for autumn/winter but bright enough to bring some light to the outfit. This Aspinal of London bag in Croc leather is exactly what I had in my mind but if I would buy it my bank may think someone has stolen my credit card. However, I found this Accesorize one that it is much more affordable and has similar style.
Shearling Denim Jacket. I think I had a jacket like this Topshop one when I was about eight and I loved it because I felt like Kelly Taylor from Beverly Hills 90210 ( what else more could you aspire in life?) . I was a bit skeptic in the beginning of this 90s come back but now I am all in. It looks super cosy, I don’t see it much with similar wash jeans Canadian Tuxedo style but it would go great with more feminine dresses and skirts or with a chunky Jumper and leather trousers.
What would like to get next? Which pieces do you think are a must-have for this season?
