New Autumn Purchases – Part 1


Over the past few months I have been buying a lot of new things for Autumn and Winter. I have picked up quite a few things in sale at places, as well as on eBay and with discount codes, so that always makes me feel better about getting new clothes and accessories. I do have quite a few pieces, which is why I am splitting this post in two.

Above is my beloved Topshop red heart polka dot style shirt. I had been in love with this shirt for ages, but it had sold out completely online and I couldn’t find it anywhere else. It was pure luck that I found it in the Selfridges Topshop department on Wednesday when I was in London, so I snapped it up before I could even think about it. I was so excited to finally find it! It’s so pretty, it reminds me a lot of the deeper burgundy shirt with bigger hearts from the Burberry collection, but I find this one is a little more girly. It’s since come back in stock online and you can purchase it here if you love it too. It’s a very popular shirt!


These gorgeous Paige Crown Jewels jeans are what I picked up on eBay for only Β£30! They are brand new with tags and my size, so I couldn’t believe what a bargain I had found. I originally saw these jeans at the press day earlier this year and thought the print was really interesting and cool. I think they will definitely make a statement!


This colour block jacket in burgundy and black is from French Connection. It’s their Athena Faux Leather Jacket and I managed to get it on ASOS in the sale. It’s so beautiful! I have always been wanting a burgundy leather style jacket, but I actually think the colour block of this one makes it much easier to wear! You can buy it online here and they have 20% off today only!


You recently saw this coat from Zara in my outfit post just before this one. I got it almost a month ago and absolutely love it. The structure of it is really fitted and the colour is of course gorgeous, as it’s burgundy! I think it’s a really classy coat and it makes any outfit look good and pulled together.


I don’t wear a lot of skirts, but I saw this one on Topshop and thought it was so pretty. It’s asymmetric and has different textures in it too. I think it will look great with a black blazer and heels, or something similar. You can buy this skirt online here.

This jumper with fairy lights on it is from Topshop. I also have the matching trousers/pants to go with it, so it’s a full fairy lights outfit. I’m wearing these more as lounge wear, but I think I can pull the jumper off with a jacket as well! You buy buy the jumper and the trousers here.


These Aztec trousers are also from Topshop and I fell in love with them. My usual choice of bottoms are jeans as you know, so I thought I needed to make the effort to wear more trousers. These are a looser skinny fit, but they are so comfortable and really flattering actually, so I’m looking forward to wearing them! Buy them online here.


I got this coat from Zalando as I had a Β£100 voucher (outfit post coming soon), but it’s actually from Warehouse as they stock Warehouse clothes. It’s so comfortable and warm with the faux fur collar around the lapels. I think the speckled dark and lighter grey tones of it are really flattering and versatile. Buy this coat online here.

Now these are some accessories! The orange plaid scarf is from Topshop and it’s so warm! It’s really pretty too, I think the orange really brightens up any outfit! The gloves are from Urban Outfitters and are so warm! They are actually lined with faux fur, so they are not just soft, but they keep the warmth in. I originally chose the burgundy fair isle pair, but I thought I might need grey too, so I bought those a little bit afterwards. Buy the scarf online here, the burgundy gloves here and the grey gloves here.

– Comment and let me know what you think of my new purchases! I will share the others with you soon. Have you bought anything?
