Autumn Fashion & Beauty Wishlist

Autumn Wishlist

Olivia Burton Watch | New Look Blanket Wrap | Burberry Cashmere Scarf | Jones Bootmaker Ankle Boots | Paul’s Boutique Adele Handbag | NARS Audacious Lipstick in ‘Sandra’ | Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

So although autumn means chilly mornings, darker nights and nips that could cut glass, there are some positives to leaving summer behind – and one big’un is the excuse to buy a whole new range of fashion and beauty bits to get us through to Christmas. The first thing on my autumn wishlist is this gorgeous Olivia Burton watch via ASOS. I already have a white and rose gold Olivia Burton which I wear most days, and this chic black one would be the perfect winter version. Next, we all wish we could drag our blankets around with us with us when it’s cold, and this New Look blanket wrap means we can do just that while still looking on-trend. I’m going to Amsterdam at the end of October and will definitely be picking up one of these to take with me.

A scarf is obviously an autumn/winter must have, and I’m still lusting after a Burberry one. This grey check is much more subtle than the classic Burberry beige, but at over £300 I think I’ll still be searching for a dupe in Primark. Sob. Another autumn must have is a new pair of black ankle boots, and this pair from Jones Bootmaker are perfect (though I was actually spoiled for choice browsing their range of ankle boots – take a look here and feel my pain). Next, I’ve been SO impressed by how much Paul’s Boutique have upped their game over the last year or two. Gone are the tacky bags that we all loved in our teenage years (yes you did, don’t lie), and in their place are a host of sophisticated but affordable bags like this stone Adele style which I desperately want.

Now onto the beauty bits I’m lusting over. Lipstick gets much darker in the autumn, and I’m looking for a vampy shade to wear for my birthday night out in a couple of weeks. This NARS lipstick in Sandra looks like the perfect deep reddy-brown, though I’ll have to swatch it first to see whether it looks as dark outside of the tube. Finally, this has appeared on a wishlist before, but I’m still itching to get my hands on the wonder product that is Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate. With a new Kiehl’s store opening in Birmingham, I’m hoping I’ll finally bite the bullet and buy this in time for it to rescue my winter skin.

What do you think of this wishlist? What do you want to buy this autumn?

      I’d rather not have the frost personally, but at least it’s a chance to buy new clothes 😉 xx
