2016 Autumn Wishlist || Guest Post

Autumn seems to have snuck up on many of us this year, maybe partly because the Summer never really got going properly so we weren’t ready for the change to come so soon. I know some people feel sad to say goodbye to the Summer months but for me, I’m actually really happy that Autumn isn't far away. The other morning I woke up and really felt the coolness in the air, even though the sun was shining brightly, there was a definite crisp in the air. It made me think about changing up the wardrobe from Summer to Winter, planning for the colder months ahead. With that in mind, I began browsing the new Autumn collections and was pleasantly surprised at how much was going into my basket! So, I thought I would share with you my Autumn wish list. I hope you enjoy!

Bath & Bodyworks

I don't think you can honestly go through Winter without having at least one  Bath & Bodyworks Candle burning somewhere in your house - and now they have launched their Autumn Candle collection, you'd be crazy not to want to have one of these in your house! Yes, annoying they don't ship to very many places but there are ways around this, you just need to get creative! I can’t wait for our house to smell like Christmas every day!

The Discount Watch Store

Next on my list this Autumn has to be this gorgeous Seiko Watch from The Discount Watch Store. My current collection is quite large but I noticed they are all predominantly Summer watches, nothing really says Autumn to me so I thought it was about 'time' to change this. I don’t really know what makes a watch look ‘summery’ exactly but this one definitely isn’t! I love that it has quite a masculine look to it with the black watch face and solid steel strap. Although I do have tiny wrists myself, I just love the look of over-sized, masculine style watches on women. They are also perfect for the colder months when you tend to have thicker layers covering you so going bigger with your accessories makes sense. Bigger watches, scarves, chunky boots...etc.

UGG Australia

UGG boots, for me, are a staple in my wardrobe, whether it's Summer or Winter, I always have a pair on the go as they are soo bloomin' comfortable to wear and they last so damn long! While flicking through their many, many styles, I came across these gorgeous Bonham UGG boots in dark brown. I don't know what it is about dark brown ankle boots in the colder months, but it's what I always seem to gravitate to. I've never really been a fan of black boots in any style though so maybe it's just been a process of elimination over the years?! Just look how pretty they are. Perfect for the colder months but I bet they would look fab with a Summer outfit next year as well, perfect with a pair of skinny jeans!


Next on my list is something I have been dying to get for months now, ever since I first set eyes on it earlier in the year. I have put it off and put it off but now is the time. I feel now we are in September, anything goes when it comes to buying Autumn/Winter accessories, you gotta stock up! So, what is it I'm talking about...well, it's the Teddy Bear Throw from Dunelm. Just £19.99 and worth every penny! It will get so much use this year and next year too and the best thing, apart from it being super thick, soft and fluffy, is that it's huge!! Come on cold evenings...I need you!

The White Company

You probably know The White Company as being a place to buy amazing candles that smell unreal, however, they also do fab clothing as well, perfect for the colder months to come. Whilst browsing their Women’s Jumper collection, I came across this gorgeous Boucle Jumper that I instantly fell in love with! Imagine snuggling up on a cold Winter’s evening wrapped in this, or going out to watch the fireworks, being all cozy and warm. I remember last year getting some of their Cashmere socks and falling in love so fingers crossed their clothing will be just as fab!


I think everyone needs a super soft, chunky scarf for the Winter time and the one I came across at Zara fits the bill perfectly. Light-weight yet still thick and chunky, perfect! My scarf collection used to contain over 70 scarves until I had a recent cull, which kinda made me fall in love with scarves again, just in time for Winter! The Basic Scarf from Zara (doesn’t seem to have a name) is pretty plain, but to me, it just means you can wear it with anything and get the most amount of wear out of it, making it a total bargain!

Fat Face

And lastly on my Autumn wish list is this beautiful Gilet from Fat Face. I swear everyone needs one of these in their wardrobes! I guess at £72 it might be seen as pretty expensive for what is really half a jacket but to me, it's so worth it. They are so useful to have around and each time I buy one, I get more and more use out of it. I chose this one because of it's stunningly perfect Autumnal colours. I think it's perfect for the Autumn but it'll also be great for next year too. I love to feel cozy and warm in Winter but sometimes a full jacket is just too much. Something like this would be perfect! I look forward to wearing you soon Mister Gilet!

So, that’s my 2016 Autumn wish list! I'm so excited to get shopping for Autumn/Winter
accessories, my favourite time of the year! Happy Autumn everyone, and happy shopping!
