Bonjour à tous!
So, it’s autumn now. I’m not going to lie, I think I’m an autumn style girl. Yes, I love summer and I think spending my days on the beachfront reading Outlander are extremely well spent. However, I think that if my features were to “look like” a particular season, I think I’d be autumn. Clothes in beautiful autumn colours like marron, red, orange and cream are my absolute favourite.
I love walking along in the crisp autumn air: it just feels so sweet and refreshing after the intense dry heat of summer. Below are some favourites for my autumn look that I feel so confident and happy wearing. To those in the Northern Hemisphere – you could probably wear these on cooler spring days as well. I hope you enjoy!

Ever since I bought this pinafore last year, I have been absolutely in love with it. I wear it a lot during autumn, as the colouration is perfect for the season. It is also made of corduroy, so it is warm enough to wear in the crisp autumn weather whilst also being cool enough when the sun gets warm throughout the afternoon. The cute pinafore that I have is from Mod Dolly, which is a British-based shop which believes that every woman is not cut from the same cloth. I absolutely LOVE Mod Dolly, because their designs are so beautiful, and I feel so unique wearing them.

I absolutely adore tartan, and it isn’t only because I am obsessed with Outlander (although that might have a little to do with it). My tartan dress is actually also from Mod Dolly, and I have received several compliments on it whilst out and about! It is really loose and flowy so I feel super comfortable in it, and I can easily pair it with tights or go without them! I am also really interested in Scottish history and I appreciate the deep meanings of the tartan for the Scottish clans and their descendants. Part of my own ancestry comes from the UK, and when I wear this I almost feel like I am wearing a beautiful piece of history.

I absolutely adore this cream coat that I purchased from Myer. I actually bought it for the winter months, but it is fantastic for those cooler autumn days which will be coming as we descend further toward the months of May (which is, incidentally, my birthday month!). It is so warm and cozy, and the simplicity of the colour sets off the colours in the rest of my outfit. It also has real pockets (important, ladies!), and a wraparound belt to really keep yourself warm.

And that concludes my autumn faves. If you live in Adelaide, you’ll probably see me around wearing at least one of these items during this pretty season!
P.S. When I was on the Mod Dolly site today creating this post, I actually ended up buying a beautiful acorn dress as well! I have been wanting the dress for a while because it is super-unique and suitable for Autumn so I can’t wait til it arrives! It was on sale and they have free worldwide shipping this week – so keen! That package-arriving-at-my-door feeling is totally the best ever xo
