Dressing for Autumn

Quilted sweatshirt from Monki, Tartan skirt from Next, Backpack c/o boohoo, Ankle boots from H&M

As much as I love the sun, I'm actually looking forward to the onset of Autumn. There's something about layering up to head outside that is just a bit comforting, and any excuse to wear a jumper is alright by me.

The Man and I headed out last weekend for a wander around Salford Quays, it was somewhere between warm and chilly so I decided it was time to crack out the tartan skirt! I love this skirt but it's that bit too big for my waist so it has to be worn with a jumper rather than my usual tucked in tee, I didn't realise quite how 'school girl' I looked with the backpack until we were half way there, rookie mistake. I paired it with one of my favourite sweatshirts from Monki that The Man's parents' got me for Christmas last year (hi Elaine if you're reading this!), it's my go to jumper at the moment as it's cropped so it's not completely wintery. 

Apparently we're due a heatwave but to be honest, I'm ready to dig out the woolly tights and leather skirts. Plus, it's an excuse to 'invest' in a whole new wardrobe. Roll on Autumn!


  1. Come next week that qulited sweatshirt will be a no-go, thought I'm not putting up much hope.

  2. I'm not to keen on cropped sweatshirts but I guess they can be good for layering or with high waisted skirts like the one you're wearing. I'm also excited about autumn - I need cold! xx
