As long as I can remember transitioning into Autumn has been my favourite time of the year because the weather is as close to perfection as UK weather can get! It is still warm but the air is starting to feel crisp. Also, in the fashion stakes we’re moving toward layering, earthy tones and textures, all of which I love!
One of my favourite outfits this season involves all of the above:
My Gianvito Rossi boots were a recent Summer sale purchase and they’re perfect for this transitional weather. I usually try to avoid suede shoes because lets be honest, they are completely impractical (particularly in rainy London) but a cool, crisp Autumn day is one of the (few) times you can get away with it! If knee high boots are for the Winter then the ankle boot is perfect for warmer autumnal weather. I love these as they have the perfect heel height and I’m a big fan of charcoal for the Autumn months, as it’s not as harsh as black.
I’m also obsessed with this earthen green sweater. I love an oversized sweater at the best of time (see my Everyday Uniform HERE, for example) so obviously one of my favourite parts of Autumn is being able to get them out again. I recently discovered Laws & Company, a boutique in Summerton, Oxford and they have a wide range of gorgeously soft, perfectly oversized jumpers with a little added bling detailing. If you’re in the area definitely go check them out!
My Charlotte Simone hooded scarf is the perfect layering piece. It’s a great size to wrap around me when it gets a little chilly. Also, a bit of fur is the perfect nod toward the cooler, changing weather (if you’re anti fur Charlotte Simone offers also offers a faux alternative).

The unfortunate truth is the evenings are cold and you need a jacket, it’s unavoidable. I always fling a jacket in the car for those “just in case” or “chilly evening” moments. This one from Leon and Harper is an oldie but a goodie and perfectly worn in.
Finally, I love a bit of gold in the Autumn so I’m pretty chuffed with this very pretty phone case from JOY*.
