Autumn Wishlist.

Hello everyone!  For my first post in September, I feel like it's only fitting to have an autumn theme - autumn is my favourite season, and I think that for me, the beginning of autumn feels more like the start of a new year than the 1st of January.  This is probably due to autumn being the start of the academic year, but there's many other things that make it feel like such an inspirational and exciting time - I love the crisp smell of the air, the beautiful colours of the trees, going out for long walks and getting hot chocolate, having cosy evenings in with comforting homecooked food and great autumn tv (did anyone watch Doctor Who last Saturday by the way, oh my)....  Over the summer, Dundee goes into semi-hibernation when all the students go home, but as soon as Fresher's Week begins the atmosphere in the city completely changes.  Also, the majority of my friends happen to have their birthdays between September and November, so autumn really is the party season for me!

Probably one of the most exciting things about autumn is seeing all the new autumn fashions come into the shops - after months of looking at nothing but pastels, having a new colour palette of clothes to choose from is really quite a relief! I've put together a collection of pieces that I've currently got my eye on, though I feel that this year I'm really spoilt for choice!

I'm in love with everything in the Dear Creatures Autumn collection, but the Chelsea coat and these lovely dresses have to be my favourites!

I'm not usually the biggest fan of gothic style autumn fashion, but I do really love this dress from River Island.

Ruche's Study Hall lookbook is full of adorable back to school inspired outfits like the ones above.

I feel like this coat from Miss Selfridge might soon be making an appearance in my autumn wardrobe...

I recently discovered Sugarhill Boutique and they have so many cute autumnal pieces, I especially love the bow pockets on the coat!

These boots by Jeffrey Campbell have the perfect autumn colour scheme!

Finally, I'm super excited to see the new Modcloth collection designed by Elsie from A Beautiful Mess - I think this dress might be my favourite!

What's your favourite thing from my wishlist?  Are there any clothes you're coveting this autumn?



  1. i love those coats in the beginning ,and of course dear creatures can do no wrong...that last dress is definitely on my wish list too :)

  2. oh man... those dear creatures dresses are gorgeous!! x

  3. It was so hard to pick out favourites from Dear Creatures, their whole A/W collection is wonderful!

  4. So many pretty finds you have here! I would love to wear some as well :D



  5. Oh all the Dear Creatures collection is just beautiful. I am looking forward to layering up again for Autumn and maybe buying a practical new coat!

  6. Those mustard trousers are perfection!

    1. I feel like mustard doesn't suit me that well but I still always seem to buy something mustard when autumn comes around!

  7. I absolutely love the navy dress from river island.I know it's sold out but any ideas where I could get it or something similar??

  8. I'm in love with the River Island dress, gutted to hear it's sold out :(
