The October Wish List

October Wish List 2018


Floral midi skirt by Topshop | Sock boots by Stuart Weitzman | Check blazer by Warehouse | Leather handbag by Mint Velvet | Yellow wrap top by Monsoon | Teddy bear coat by Warehouse | Felt fedora by Reiss | Stripe scarf by Burberry | Floral print dress by RIXO London

October and December are the only “cold weather” months that I actually enjoy. December because of the Christmas festivities, of course. And October because it provides such beautiful colours in nature, pumpkins galore, and the first truly crisp days of the season (which are early enough to still feel like a novelty).

October is a month that I bizarrely associate with Meg Ryan movies, like When Harry Met Sally and You’ve Got Mail. So, right now, I want to channel a bit of Meg when it comes to fashion. I really like the idea of pairing Warehouse’s check blazer with a felt fedora (think of it a 2018 update on this look), and accessorising RIXO London’s floral dress with lace-up leather boots and a chunky knit.

Also catching my eye, this month, is Monsoon’s yellow, jacquard wrap top (pair with leather leggings for evenings out) and Burberry’s rainbow stripe scarf. The latter is definitely an investment purchase, at £350. But it’s sure to elevate even the most boring of autumn/winter outfits.

Which style buys are topping your wish lists, this October? Comment below to have your say…
