My Wish list for Autumn and Winter is always way, way, way longer than my summer one. I think the fact i live in Scotland and that i’m accustomed to minus temperatures 70% of the year means that 70% of my wardrobe is generally Chunky knits, jeans and ankle boots.
I’ve plucked out a few things i’ve spotted in H&M recently, online there’s lots of leopard, blouses, blazers and casual tailoring…but i’ve narrowed my finds down slightly for this post.
|Black Silk Blouse|
I think this blouse would look awesome with a nice pair of jeans and a blazer, more of a feminine take on the androgynous look. I really like the cuffs and the Grandad collar, the length would also make it easy to wear it tucked in or hanging free over a nice skirt.
|Red Cropped Jumper £29.99|
|Faux Leather Skirt £24.99|
This wee jumper and skirt combo is a dream! The jumper hits all the right spots for me when it comes to a good knit, High neck, baggy sleeves, and cropped. Win, win…win?
The skirt, i love, i have another faux leather skirt from H&M that is smoother, but i like the grainy leather effect on this one. I just hope that zip doesn’t go all the way down. That could end in tears.
|Oversized Coat £39.99|
Looking at the androgynous look again… surprise.
I honestly think that i was meant to be a boy, or maybe it’s just growing up with two brothers has led to me having some underlying need to dress like them. I dunno. But i like this coat. Just think of all the big jumpers you could fit under it? And i’ve gotta say, i love the lapels too, and worn with a cheeky fedora you’d have a nice ‘inspector gadget’ thing going on!
|Black Leather Boots £39.99|
|Leopard Print Beanie|
These boots look like they’d be perfect for me. As much as i love Calum, the fast that we are the same height, (he likes to claim he’s a little taller, but he’s not) makes shopping in the shoe department pretty restricting for me. He forbids me from wearing any heel that makes me look like a giant and him….not. So when buying heels some extra consideration for Calum has to come into play, but i think he’d approve of these.
The beanie, i love, i seem to have developed a small fetish for hats this season, and every shop i’m in, i like to try them all on. Using the excuse that now my hair’s short, i need to check that i can still pull it off. Noone’s buying it.
|Grey Marl Poncho £29.99|
I am dying to get my hands on one of these! I loved the ones that Burberry did at Fashion Week, with the little added monogramming. However, to get the Poncho and the monogram, you’d be skinning yourself over £1000. Ain’t no one got time for that. Well atleast i don’t (i have a wedding to pay for you know) So for the time being, i suppose this one will do, a total bargain at £29.99 with the added extra of fringing, i rekon swishing about in this little baby would be super fun!
