Although I’m definitely a summer girl at heart, I am also completely in love with Autumn. Obviously I’m not talking about the wet and dreary days or the longer nights. I have the classic romantic image of Autumn in my head. Fallings leaves, beautiful rich colours, mustard and plum coloured outfits and brand new boots!
I may not like the slightly colder chill in the air. But above all other seasons, Autumn is the one that inspires me the most. I’ve looked back on some of the Autumn photos I’ve shared not he blog over the years and found found lots of Autumn inspiration.
Looking at the colours outside our windows can be the perfect muse for planning your Autumn wardrobe. Seeing all the different colours on the trees can definitely help you pick out the perfect mix and match wardrobe.
I find that during Autumn I wear a lot more 60s and 70s inspired outfits. Vibrant Crimplenes and bold accessories, alongside 70s style maxis work so well for the season.
This retro autumn outfit which appeared on the blog a couple of years ago, is full of Autumn colours. I wore an original vintage dress, with some tights and boots from primark.
One of my most treasured Autumnal accessories is my original Enid collins handbag. I love the design and the colours, it one of the highlights of my bag collection.
When it comes to make-up, I usually go for classic reds or browns at this time of year and definitely wear fewer pink tones. Lady Danger by Mac (pictured) is the perfect orange toned red and works really well for a vintage look.
As for accessories, the world of vintage plastics will always be your friend during Autumn. There are so many beautiful tones of bakelite and celluloid jewellery. Not to mention cheap and cheerful plastic bangles. I love finding treasures at car boot sales and charity shops to accessories my outfits.
Hair flowers are another great accessory for vintage autumn outfits, this is one of my favourite ones. I usually pick these up on Etsy or at vintage fairs. Check out my Autumn Dress Wishlist from last week for another dose of Autumnal ideas.
I have big plans for lots of lovely Autumn posts and have been doing lots of planning, ready for when the kids go back to school. Watch this space for recipes, wish lists, hauls and outfit posts. Also please let me know if you have any requests.
