Its about that time of year where the weather is starting to cool down! We've had a few really hot sunny days here in the UK which we were all very grateful for, and have throughly enjoyed wearing my cute summer dresses. However, I have decided that now is the right time to have a wardrobe clear out and to start prepping for autumn. I'm not talking about full on coats, scarfs, and wooly hats just yet as that is a bit extreme! Just a few lightweight pieces I can layer up and mix and match for the cooler days.

Cardigan - Asos, Dress - Brandy Melville, Shoes - Similar here, Bag - Mango

Cardigans are a great layering piece for autumn. This is the first one I purchased to start off my knitwear collection. I have been loving draping a chunky knit cardigan over strappy dresses and tops recently. I prefer a more slouchy oversized fit as to me it looks effortless but stylish (also comfier!). Cardigans have definitely made a comeback and are a lighter option to wearing a coat/jacket in the autumn.

Suit - Boohoo Top Bottom, Tee - Similar here, Bag - Primark, Shoes - Stan Smiths

I have seen so many suits floating around in high street stores recently and I love them. I found this one on sale on boohoo and I am obsessed. Finding a nice suit is the perfect going out outfit option. You don't have to go through all the fuss of trying to match certain pieces, its all done for you! All you have to do is find a cute bodysuit or cami to go on underneath and thrown on a pair or stilettos and you're good to go. As you can see I went for a more casual vibe with this suit. Pairing it with a T-shirt and trainers instantly makes the outfit wearable for daytime. Red is also a very popular colour this autumn so go ahead and try!

Trousers- Zara (not available in online but check in store), Top - Similar here, Shoes - Stan Smiths, Bag - Primark

This Autumn I want to try and challenge myself to stop wearing so much denim jeans. Lets face it, it's most peoples go to option when it comes to what to wear on the bottom. Recently I have been discovering trousers that look great and are way comfier to wear instead of jeans! I am loving the strip detail on these ones which adds a cool sporty vibe to this otherwise plain outfit.

Blazer - Bershka, Bodysuit - Boohoo, Skirt - H&M, Bag - Mango

Blazers are also a great layering piece for the colder months. This dogs tooth checked blazer is very popular at the moment and I have seen it worn in a bunch of bloggers Instagram pics. I chucked this blazer on with this lace bodysuit so it wouldn't give off too much of a businessy vibe and keeps it quite sexy. Sexy, but also keeping it casual with the denim skirt.

I hope you enjoyed my looks! I can slowly see my wardrobe filling up with great autumnal pieces! Autumn is my favourite season so I secretly can't wait for the sun to disappear and the leaves to change colours. Bring on the cosier months!!
