With my fashion brain firmly in A/W mode I'm thinking about my next key purchases for the season ahead. I usually like to make a splurge on good quality pieces that will carry me through future years, alongside the usual high street buys. I'm a self-confessed jacket addict, so I'm like a kid in a candy shop when I see all the new faux furs and oversized boyfriend coats hitting the new ins. I already have a few items on my mind so I thought I'd share some of my current wants with you:
Topshop Blanket Cape / ASOS Fedora / Karen Millen Jacket / Moschino Watch / ASOS Loafers / Warehouse Pinafore Dress / Sophie Hulme Bag
I really wanted a 'cape' sort of shawl/wrap last winter that I could snuggle up in, I ummed over them for a while before leaving it a bit late to invest in one. I will be quicker in my decision making this A/W and I think this Topshop baby will be just perfect, especially teamed with my new lilac fedora hat ;). I've decided my life is missing a pair of smart loafers, after favouring chunky platform style boots and shoes for the past couple of years I think it's time my shoe collection had a little maturity and sophistication added to it. Not that I still don't love a good chunky sole!
I've been DROOLING over Sophie Hulme bags and purses for far too long now, I just love the simplicity and gorgeous gold hardware used. I'm really into smaller bags at the moment (bad backs rejoice!) so I love this little cross-body number. It will definitely be an item to save for though! Soon it will probably be time to trade my sleeveless blazer for something a little more winter suitable, so this Karen Millen beauty is calling my name! I CAN'T WAIT TO LAYER AGAIN! Though ask me in 3 months when I'm standing at a bus stop freezing my ass off.
