Autumnal Accessories

But just because us mums constantly run around like headless chickens doesn’t mean we shouldn’t spend a little time making ourselves look and feel great right? 
With autumn and winter just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about wrapping up. You all know that Autumn is my favourite time of the year; it's always so much fun, what with bonfire night, Halloween and the thoughts of Christmas brewing steadily. So what little extras can you include in your new look?

Classic Timepiece
Keep track of those shorter days and make the most out of your family time with an amazing new watch. A watch should be a staple in everyone’s wardrobe and I'm currently without one! The gorgeous Jaeger-LeCoultre collection at Watches of Switzerland has that timeless (pun intended) look whilst looking bang-on trend for autumn too. The classic strap will suit all your winter jumpers and it instantly dresses up any outfit. Want!

Bubbly bangles
Your woolly knits and cord trousers would love some matching accessories, wouldn’t they? Always! I’m an absolute sucker for accessories - and bangles and bracelets in particular. They can really make or break an outfit and when you’re on a limited budget, or the last t-shirt you have without grubby hand prints on it happens to be one from 1995, then they can really bring everything together. Very useful if you’re having a challenging day! 
Big chunky bangles will always give the illusion of a well put together outfit. For the rustic autumnal look, try chunky wooden bangles teamed with smaller bronzed and gold chain and cuffs. 

Feeling blue
No, I’m not suggesting the weather is getting you down. Blue was seen all over the catwalk last month and it happens to be super flattering too; perfect for hiding those lumps and bumps! 
Bright cobalt will do well to make an impact (a simple belt, bag and heeled boot combo will update your evening look) but softer blues in different textures are pretty awesome too.
For the X Factor, look towards the jewels and gemstones; turquoise, topaz and apatite look beautiful with not only neutral colours such as black and white but bold hues like red and purple too. 

Flirty Florals
Florals always seem to be included in every trend every season which is just as well because I LOVE THEM! My wardrobe is full to bursting with floral printed dresses, tops and skirts but my love affair totally extends to accessories too.

Similar to the flower crowns so popular at festivals, think casual fabric necklaces and rope bangles updated in winter hues. Burnt orange necklaces and fiery red pendants remind me of the gorgeous autumnal leaves and look really striking against a classic black outfit. 
Obviously floral always comes in many shapes and forms. Embellished chunky jewels in rainbow colours are super fun whilst small vintage chains with floral pendants ooze delicacy if you’re after something a bit more subtle.

  1. I love Autumn/Winter florals and they are on my list. I also love your leaf necklace in the first picture. For Autumn, I would really like a wool blanket/coat, but I worry they are a bit too much of a trend and will instantly go out of fashion. x
