Autumn Wishlist '14

Monday, 22 September 2014


 Autumn wishlist featuring items from Sheinside, River Island, Choies and New Look.

Today is the first day of Autumn! This year has just flown by, I don't mean to be cliché but where has the time gone.. I'm back at university next week and after such a long break, I don't feel ready to learn one bit! I've loved this summer, it's been filled with new destinations, new experiences and a lot of warm weather. Nevertheless, I'm excited for it to get colder, I love wrapping up warm in jackets and jumpers - I find these to be the most cosy. I was still summer shopping in September which was a shock for me (I had never been on a summer holiday in September before this year), so I have to admit that now I'm looking forward to stocking up my winter wardrobe. I love the new A/W trends so I'm excited for it to get a little colder so I can go ahead and experiment! 

Here's what I'm lusting over this autumn...



I'm a huge fan of Sheinside, I've blogged about Sheinside products in the past and I can't say I've ever been disappointed with their products. I initially was a little cautious as the products come from outside of the UK and so returning anything is unthinkable (unless you want to pay more for a return than the actual item cost!). With that being said, I have never had to return anything - even sizing is spot on on their sizing charts.

A/W means wrapping up warm in gorgeous coats and knits. Feel any deja-vu looking at the beige coat? It's a fabulous Zara dupe, this jacket on Zara costs over £150! I don't know about you, but my student budget definitely doesn't allow for that much spending on a coat! This alternative from Sheinside is an affordable dupe. 

I also fell in love with this coral number, I find I opt for dark clothing during the winter months and so adding a pop of colour with a coat is a fun way to brighten up your outfit. I've been eyeing up these pleated, sporty skirts from American Apparel and surprise, surprise, I managed to find a cheaper dupe in Sheinside. Well done Sheinside for all these fabulous dupes, my bank account says thank you!



Since street style spotting at London Fashion Week, I have been eyeing up a pair of knee high black boots. I love these from River Island because they're pretty simple, I've seen so many overcrowded by chains and buckles which I'm not a huge fan of. What can I say about a check shirt? It's a must in any winter wardrobe, especially in dark, autumnal tones.



I had never really come across Choies, it's another online shop similar to Sheinside, but I can't say much else about it as I only placed an order last week and delivery is usually pretty long! I love these roll neck jumpers, I think they make such a cosy new trend (big yay for comfortable fashion!) I also really want experiment with tucking my hair into jumpers, which is also a trend this A/W. Camel is a gorgeous colour for Autumn, and I love the look of this oversized hat to add to my outfits.



These heels may not be the most appropriate for A/W, and in rainy London? Even worse haha! But these remind me of a gorgeous pair I spotted in Zara before summer but didn't get my hands on. They're available in both black and grey but I was more inclined to this grey pair, as again, they'll be great to add something to a predominantly dark outfit. I surprised myself by loving the backpack trend and bought a pale blue one from New Look for the summer/back to school season. This deep burgundy backpack is gorgeous! It looks well structured and I think the colour is perfect for the coming months.

    1. I know right! I can't believe the Zara one costs £150 (crazy!) so I'm definitely ok with spending around £40 for a dupe! Happy to hear you like my autumn picks! X
