I hope you have enjoyed the baking posts over the past few weeks, I had alot of fun making them for you (especially tasting the end result!). I thought it was about time I got back into some more lifestyle based blog posts and what better way to start things off than with a post dedicated to my current go to Autumn outfit. I am really obsessed with this outfit at the moment and although it is mostly black, I feel that the pop of colour from the shoes (which you may remember from this post) really brings this outfit together.
I feel like a classic black leather jacket is a wardrobe staple that most people have somewhere in their wardrobe. I recently talked about where I got mine a few weeks ago in this post and I have worn it almost everyday since, I love how versatile it is and it really completes so many of my outfits, I don’t know how I managed to put together outfits without it!
I bought this striped long sleeve top from Dotti for about $13.00 a few weeks ago and as soon as I tried it on, I didn’t want to take it off. I had actually been looking for something similar for about 2 years but never found anything that I really liked, so I was so happy when I saw this hanging on the rack with a half price sign (yay for sales!). I do already own a white long sleeve with black stripes but I really like the classic look of black with white stripes as it’s not so in your face on a dull Autumn or Winter day. There is no doubt in my mind that this top will continue to be one of my favourite purchases of the year.
I like to pair this outfit with a pair of black highwaisted leah jeans that I also got from Dotti earlier in the year for around $40.00. I love these jeans as they are cropped slightly so they are the perfect length for my legs and I’ve found that they’ve kept their colour for much longer than most of my black jeans have. I will continue to buy these jeans as long as Dotti has them in stock because I love them so much.
The shoes I like to wear to add a bit of colour to the outfit are my red boots with gold heels that some of you may remember from last years Autumn outfit post. I find that they really pull the outfit together and add a great focal point (the loud clip clop of the heels on the concrete is also guaranteed to get alot of attention haha). The thing I like most about these boots is that when we are lucky enough to have some sun, the gold tends to catch the light and flickers as I walk. I think these boots may continue to be part of my go to Autumn and Winter outfits as I really like being able to dress in dark colours and really have the shoes do all the talking.
I really hope you enjoyed this blog post! 🙂
Until next time
