Autumn Shopping: Wishlist

My original plan for the day was to go shopping for some warmer clothes. I got up, put my face on, picked out an outfit... then got back into bed. I was determined to beat this cold but unfortunately the illness won and since I have work tomorrow I decided to rest up and do a little online browsing. I begrudge paying for postage unless I really have to so browsing was the most I could do for now.

First stop: River Island. I've never gone into River Island and not seen at least a handful of things I liked. Here's just a few picks but, trust me, there is so much more I want.

  1. Beige Animal Print Sequin Jumper. I love animal print but prefer it in different colours to the natural leopard print browns. This jumper looks so cosy and the sequins add a little sparkly touch. This with a pair of dark blue jeans and some sturdy boots would look great, add a leather jacket and a beanie and you've got the perfect outfit.
  2. Blue Abstract Print High Waist Leggings. Even though its getting cold I'll never be able to say goodbye to bright colours and prints completely. I just think the print and colours on these leggings is SO pretty. Since it's cold out there now I'd probably throw on an oversized sweater and some wedge sneakers with this for a nice bright casual look.
  3. Black High Shine Leather Look Trousers. I'm a huge fan of leather and leather look and these high shine leather look trousers are just perfect for a night out! A nice bright peplum top and killer heels would complete the look. I'm a dress girl but my legs can't take it in these winter months so I'll definitely be picking these up for those cool nights out.
  4. Black Leather and Suede Biker Jacket. How beautiful and warm does this look! I can't guarantee that this is something I'm going to purchase but this is without doubt the best thing I've seen today. The only reason I'm not so sure about actually buying this is because it's £200. I'd no doubt get a lot of wear out of this but whether or not it would be £200 worth of wear is why I'm just not sure yet if I can justify splashing quite that much cash. For now though I'm just going to admire it's amazing-ness.
  5. Cream Cherry Print Eyelash Jumper. How freaking cute is this?! I love quirky little prints and I love fluffy fuzzy jumpers. This is so perfect, this would make the perfect girly outfit teamed with a cute skirt and ballet flats.
  6. Lime Sheer Panel Peplum Top. Lime green? Check. Peplum? Check. That's two of my favourite things in one top! This with the high shine leather look trousers is the most killer outfit, it's so good I'm even considering this as a Christmas party outfit option.
  7. Black Chunky Buckle Cut Out Boots. I love love love cut out boots, I have a few pairs but they all have quite a big heel which isn't really practical for the rain and snow (I swear I'm not being premature talking about snow, I've heard it's starting from next month!). These are perfect with the chunky sole. I just love them and I feel like these will be getting worn a lot over the next few months,
  8. Black High Shine Chelsea Boot Wellies. Another practical but oh so pretty pair of boots. So super shiny, I know I'll be wandering around feeling 10 again jumping in every puddle I see.
  9. Cream Contrast Bottom Zip Tote Bag. This bag is so classy and expensive looking. The perfect colours to match most outfits and I love the zip detailing and the little tassle. So ladylike.
Next we're onto New Look. I have a weird relationship with New Look, whenever I shop online I find it hard to see many things that I like but whenever I'm in the store their stuff just looks so much better. I don't know if it's just me or if they just have a better selection in-store or what but that's always how it is for me. That said I did find quite a few pieces today.

  1. Monochrome Aztec Fluffy Jumper. Another fluffy fuzzy jumper, love the print. I can just imagine this with black skinny jeans and some cute ankle boots. 
  2. Monochrome Tartan Skater Skirt. Tartan is going to be huge this season and being a massive Clueless fan I can't wait to start wearing it (I won't be held responsible if I happen to start relentlessly quoting from the film). This skirt with a plain black cropped fuzzy jumper is the ultimate throwback to the 90s!
  3. Black Animal Print Collar Jumper. I don't even know why I love this but I do. Anything with a collar is good in my book and the hint of animal print against the plain black is just so stylish. 
  4. Retro Tile Jacquard Print A-Line Skirt. First 90s and now we're going  a little bit 60's. The cut on this is so flattering and the print is so wearable. I'm so glad for the collection of skirts around this Autumn, as much as I love jeans and leggings I like to be a girly girl every once in a while too.
  5. Tapestry Floral Sleeveless Skater Dress. Tapestry print is such a good floral print for the colder months, that teamed with the always flattering skater style makes the perfect Autumn dress. I'd love this with an oversized cardigan, some frilly ankle socks, chelsea ankle boots and a plain tote bag (the bigger the bag the better).
  6. Black Leather Look Side Zip Skirt. More leather look, it's impossible to have too much of this! A staple piece for Autumn that I could dress up or down. I'll get so much wear out of this!
  7. Black Metal Plate Lace Up Boots. The fact that I can wear so many biker style pieces now it's Autumn is making me almost giddy. I already own a couple of pairs of biker boots but the gold plate on these really makes them stand out.
  8. Black Leather Gold Plate Block Heel Ankle Boots. Another pair of boots with gold plate detailing, real leather and so simple but with that little bit of edge. Perfection.
This next one is probably not the most popular place for shopping both for my readers and for myself, but I was actually quite surprised at the stuff they had and it's all so reasonably price. Everything here is from George at Asda (shocking I know).

  1. Faux Fur Collar Leather Look Biker Jacket. More biker and more leather, I'm sure you're getting by now that this is my style haha. This time featuring a bit of fur, I'm not at all a fur lover but a little detailing here and there just adds a lovely cosy warm feeling to an outfit. This is also a bargain and just £30.
  2. Textured Skater Dress. Skater dresses are so comfortable and wearable, I just love the colour of this one and the texture makes it a bit more appropriate for Autumn/Winter than some of the other plain jersey material ones around at the minute.
  3. Check Print Tube Skirt. Love the print and zip detailing on this. It's just so perfect, I feel like I'll want to wear something like this when I go for my annual early Christmas Dinner with my friends.
  4. Peplum Shirt. I already have about 100 things in my wardrobe I can imagine wearing this with. Peplum is flattering and once again this is a piece that could be dressed up or down, all it would take for a night out is some trousers, skyscraper heels and a big statement necklace. Oh and don't forget the red lip.
  5. Stud Peplum Jumper. It's a jumper, it's peplum and it has studs. It's like this was made for me. I don't see too many peplum jumpers around so I really love this one.
  6. Tartan Shorts. I never really wear shorts but these are just adorable. I can imagine them with a cute printed jumper and some thick tights. I just fell in love with these the second I saw them, the fact that they're only £12 and have nothing but good reviews on the website helped make my decision to buy these.
  7. Stud Pixie Boots. Don't worry I'm not gonna be buying all the ankle boots pictured in this post, these are just a selection of the ones I'm deciding between. Love the stud detailing and the suedette panels.
  8. Studded Boots. In case you hadn't already guessed, I love chunky boots. The stud and buckle detailing on this really finishes off the look. I'd definitely have to see these in person as I'm not so sure of the quality from the picture but they are only £22.
Now I just have one quick mention left for New Look and it's for their range of Seasonal Jumpers for Christmas that you can currently preview on the website. The most adorable Christmas jumpers EVER!

Pretty colours and cute prints. What more could you want? How about a jumper that lights up!! Thats right, the second jumper in the above picture actually has little lights on the Christmas tree. I Love Christmas and have been talking about it for weeks now so I know not everyone will be as enthusiastic as me about these but I just love them!
