Trust Me—Buy These 20 Things

Working at Who What Wear UK requires spending a lot of time browsing new-in sections, meaning our personal shopping lists are rather extensive. I'm a relatively safe dresser and avoid anything too loud or likely to date, so I tend to favour classic tailoring, pretty midi dresses and blouses worn with jeans.

So what's caught my eye this month? This is the month where many of us are having a shift in mindset and starting to plot our autumn and winter wardrobes. I was still in full-on summer mode until yesterday's monsoon-like conditions, and all that rain made me start thinking about ankle boots and trench coats.

For autumn, I'm after another pair of Marks and Spencer's high-cut ballerina pumps, a jazzy animal-print fleece from & Other Stories and a pair of lace-up ankle boots from Arket. I couldn't possibly buy all the jackets and boots I'm saving to wish lists, so as they say, sharing is caring.

Arket does the most beautiful leather shirts. 

I didn't see this one coming, but I really want a fleece jacket.

I'd wear this with a slip skirt and chunky boots. 

I'd wear this with lace-up boots and straight-leg jeans. 

This is a lovely option for September weddings. 

I'm craving autumn walks, and this cord Barbour is perfect for country weekends. 

Wear later in the year with tights and boots. 

I own these in black and love the shape, so I've been eyeing them up in pink too.
