As the days dwindle deeper into the month of May, it becomes
increasingly more difficult to spring out of bed in the mornings. Not to
mention the struggle that is trying to rediscover your Winter wardrobe. We do
however have a few days before June rolls around so let’s discuss what I
believe is the perfect Autumn ensemble. Take your trusty jeans and heels combo
to a cosier level by pairing it with a lightweight long sleeve shirt layered
with a fluffy gilet. A gilet or two is essential to your wardrobe this season.
And the (faux) furrier, the better. The next trend that I must mention is a
pragmatic one. So much so that I hope it sticks around for a while. Shopping
with a backpack is astronomically better than lugging an ill-fitting (sartorially
appealing but ill-fitting nonetheless) handbag around while also trying to hold
your purchases and an iced coffee. There are the cutest backpacks available at
the moment like this one from Mr Price which I snapped up for a cool R79. With a
price tag like that I will steer clear of becoming a broke girl this month.
Speaking of broke girls, I have wanted a “Caroline necklace” for the longest
time. I’m glad I finally found this one from Woolworths and I think it rounds
off the outfit perfectly.
