AUTUMN; CHANGES

After a long hot English summer that seems like a distant dream (that we can't really believe even happened), reality has set back in with the cooler climate approaching. And I'm totally here for autumn; the changing of the leaves, new opportunities, oh and the fashion trends we're all obsessing over. 
Autumn brings with it a breath of fresh air, hitting the reset button for many of us. I have recently accepted a very exciting job offer to be a junior marketing executive of a marketing agency.  Whilst this is slightly nerve-racking as it will be my first 'proper' job, I am excited about the possibilities and opportunities this change will bring (I also can't wait for styling work outfits!)

However, the trends this season offer a little irony to this philosophy since we see the same styles reoccurring. For instance, check print, brown earthy tones, chunky knits, animal print and leather are all non-surprisingly back to greet us with a warm familiarity that autumn has arrived. I see this as a great way to invest in pieces that will be perennial and multi-seasonal, which is where I head to the charity shops. This check print jacket cost under £5 and I get to wear it every year! I have also picked up some more bargain pieces that I can't wait to style for this season.
