Autumn/Winter Jewellery With A Weathered Penny

Coat: McQ Alexander McQueen (similar)
Top: COS
Necklace: c/o A Weathered Penny
Trousers: COS (similar)
Shoes: Zara (similar)

I have a bit of a weird relationship with jewellery - sometimes I'm really into it and wear it on the daily, sometimes I'll go for weeks without wearing any at all. Being fully in the throes of autumn, I'm back in my jewellery phase to add a little something extra to my daily uniform of coats and knitwear, adding pieces here and there to usual neutrals. 

I've recently teamed up with A Weathered Penny to style up some of their pieces, including this silver layered circles necklace. It's minimal enough that it still fits in with my pared-back aesthetic while still being intricate and design-led to be an interesting adornment. 

I'll be sharing a few more of my favourite pieces from the jewellery brand throughout this season but check out a few of them now on my Instagram.

Autumn Whites

Sunglasses: ASOS (similar)
Coat: & Other Stories (similar)
Top: T by Alexander Wang
Trousers: Mango (similar)
Shoes: Zara

For the most part, my uniform consists of darker shades throughout autumn and winter but sometimes it's nice to break up the palette a little bit with crisper colours. Enter these white oversized trousers that I got for a snip in the Mango Outlet (...which I only just realised existed) and couldn't wait until next summer to wear, worn with a simple long-sleeved tee and black tailored coat for a little seasonally-appropriate extra.

The Belt Bag

Jumper: COS (similar)
Trousers: Zara (similar)
Bag: Zara (similar)
Trainers: Vans 

The bum bag. I never thought I'd see the day when I actually owned and wore one (too many memories of dodgy tourist outfits when holidaying in France in the '90s) but I'm a fully fledged convert. This leather bum bag (or belt bag as I believe it's now called) is now one of my favourite accessories, thanks to its clean shape and the ability it gives me to go completely hands-free, just carrying the necessities.

Revisiting Autumnal Dressing

Jumper: ASOS
Trousers: Mango (similar)
Trainers: Vans 

Now we're fully into October I'm all about that autumnal dressing again. The lightweight knits are starting to come out, as are some of last season's staples - like these high-waisted Mango trousers that I'm very much looking forward to carry on wearing over the next few months.

The Fail-safe Pieces

Coat: ASOS
Top: COS
Trousers: COS
Shoes: Zara 

These are the fail-safe pieces I've been returning to again and again lately. Those relaxed yet slightly tailored shapes and cuts that are just about passable in the office but feel like an instant comfort blanket when I'm stumbling around at 6:30am trying to get ready while simultaneously trying not to wake the whole house up. 

I've been struggling with the change of the seasons in the past few weeks. Those long dark nights and even darker mornings seem to have made me a lot more tired than usual, so reaching for those pieces that are essentially an extension of lounge wear is a pretty good compromise.

The Boyfriend Pyjama Shirt

Shirt: ASOS (similar)
Jeans: Weekday
Boots: Zara (similar)

If you've been following me for a while you'll know I'm a fan of anything loose, oversized and with a few masculine details. Well, I've gone one step further and started raiding my boyfriend's wardrobe for a few pieces here and there (and cunningly doubled my clothing collection in the process) when I become a bit bored with my own. I've been pinching this ASOS pyjama-style shirt quite a bit recently, changing it up slightly with rolled-ups sleeves and a plunging neckline (this is the time when my A cups come in handy) so it's less boyfriend-leftovers, more autumnal-feminine-chic (at least that's what I'm telling myself).
