Updating My Wardrobe For Autumn


One thing I don't tend to do as much now that I'm a parent is treat myself. To anything really and I'm at my worst when it comes to clothing. I'm always buying the kids new outfits, even when they really don't need that new jumper or pair of shoes. I on the other hand, have about four go to outfits that I wear every single week and that's it. I'm not alone in this though am I? It's totally a parent thing!

With the change of seasons brings a change of wardrobe, it's time for lots of layers and wooly hats. I've been promising myself a brand new outfit for months, so with the change of season and my recent weight loss it's the perfect excuse to treat myself to something new!

I've been browsing online and have come up with my perfect outfit, not just for Autumn but all year round too. Skinny grey jeans, floaty baby pink camisole teamed up with a black faux leather jacket and finished with a white tote. This is my taste to a tee, pieces which can be mixed and matched with other garments and choices that never go out of style.



Erika Biker Faux Fur Leather Jacket // £37.99
Let's start with the jacket, how gorgeous is it? I don't own a faux leather jacket yet as I'v been looking for the perfect one for years. At just £37.99 I think I'd be crazy not to buy this as it ticks all the boxes. It's also one of those pieces which is suitable all year round. In the summer I'd pair it with a chiffon dress and some strappy sandals.

REISS Edie White Leather Tote Bag // £190.00
Now you may think I'm a little crazy to have my eye on this bag but after using changing bags for the past four years I'm due a bit of glamour aren't I? It's currently in the handbag sale at Love The Sales, marked down to £190 from £295! A huge saving of £105. It's definitely on my Christmas list this year and I keep hinting to my other half about it.

Warehouse Double Layer Vest // £20.99
I'm not a girly girl, not by a long shot but I am partial to a bit of pink! This floaty little number from Warehouse is an absolute steal at this price. The double layer effect really adds some texture to an outfit and it's a piece which can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Abercrombie & Fitch Grey Skinny Jeans // £74.99
Last but not least we have a pair of jeans from the ever so popular, Abercrombie & Fitch. Skinny jeans have been a staple in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember, you can't beat a good pair of skinnies! Just like the vest, handbag and jacket this piece is really versatile.

When was the last time you treated yourself to a new outfit?

  1. I never seem to treat myself to a new outfit unless I really need something for work. I'm currently trying to cull my overflowing wardrobe so that I can justify updating it. Though I do need a pair of boots for work.

  10. I do like jeans for Autumn / Winter. Though not skinny ones for me, I always have had chunky calf muscles:- Maybe from lots of walking when we were young. So, no :- I'll be looking for comfy jeans, so as to not restrict blood circulation in my legs,etc.
