Style Edit: Boden autumn wear

Yellow bode cardigan

I don’t know about you but I’m kind of done with summer and ready for autumn now. Don’t get me wrong I love that during the warmer months you can potter about in sandals and summer dresses but I do enjoy dressing for autumn and really look forward to this time of year.

I have a particular fondness for knitwear, especially cardigans and if they’re cashmere then even better! I actually have three from Boden. I’m not going to think too hard about how much cashmere that is in monetary terms but it ain’t cheap ladies, but a good cashmere cardigan is an investment and can just make or break an outfit. I’ve been buying one a year for the past three years and because Boden cashmere is such beautiful quality they are all as good as the day I bought them.

I already have a cream and pastel lavender in this style cardigan and I did have a black one in my basket then I thought: ‘do you know what? I’m going for something in your face colourful’ so that’s exactly what I got.

This gorgeous saffron yellow cropped cashmere cardigan is a true yellow colour without a hint of mustard (not that I dislike mustard but this is brighter) and looks fantastic with black and also teamed with other colours such as purple, which makes sense as they are opposite each other on the colour wheel.

Pink tweed jacket

 

The other autumn staple I have a bit of a thing for buying every year is a winter coat. As you can tell I’m having a bit of a thing with colour at the moment and instead of going for the sensible camel coloured coat I’d been eyeing up, I went for the this pink tweed one instead. It’s not actually all that bright, in fact, it’s edging towards candy pink rather than in your face pink. It’s the most stunning tweed with a herringbone pattern running lightly through and I love it. I think I’ll get so much wear from it and am actually wishing away the last of the balmy days until I can wear it #sorrynotsorry.

Last buy is these fabulous leopard print shoes. Basically, anything with leopard print I’m drawn to like a magpie to silver and I just don’t think you can beat a pair of leopard print shoes. These are available in two heights and although my heart urged me to go for the higher heel, my head plumped for mid because I know I’ll wear them during the daytime with skinny jeans and a jumper rather than reserving them for ‘best’.

So that’s a few of my picks for autumn, I have lots more on my wishlist though!

Have you started shopping for autumn yet?

    LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! That yellow cardi looks beautiful on you, and well done on getting the pink coat rather than the sensible one! You look gorgeous as always. And good for you on not reserving those shoes for best. Oh for a bottomless bank account to buy the whole Boden wishlist, eh Amy? xxx

    That coat is beautiful and looks so lovely on you! I’m too on a mission this AW to buy a coat that is COLOURFUL instead of the usual grey / black etc and that I can fit the bump into?! :-/ And like you, I can’t wait to start getting out the knits and comfy stuff for the season. This is my most favourite time of the year. X

      Thank you my lovely, there are so many gorgeous coats at Boden this year. I think I’d be tempted to get one that has no hope in doing up just yet, and save it for dressing up in once baby is here if I were you! xx
