Only my favourite month of the year- along with every other absolute basics.
October comes and it’s like all of a sudden it turns into actual Autumn. Leaves start to fall, conkers appear on the ground and YES I CAN FINALLY LIGHT ALL THE AUTUMNAL CANDLES!
Let’s not even discuss that it’s also when the queen of autumn beverages becomes available in Starbucks..love you PSL.
My current Autumn wishlist is pretty long, as is my ASOS saved items list, and is a combination of everything I need for the new season .
1. The chunky knit jumpers
I purchased one of these jumpers from New Look over the weekend and oh my..I now need it in every colour. It is the perfect knit and I love the detail at the back. Not to mention it comes in berry and mustard which are the ultimate Autumn colours!
2. Autumn Candles
I spoke briefly about some bargain autumn candles I picked up in B&M stores in my last post, and since then I’ve added to my collection. I went a little bit candle mad in Homesense and bought 2 of their pumpkin based candles but now I have a slight obsession and need to buy ALL OF THEM.
3. Soothing Skincare
I don’t know about you, but as soon as the weather changes my skin likes to flip out on me and HELLO DRY SKIN. This makes applying make up an absolute mission so I’m all for anything that will moisturise and rid me of flaky ness! (So gross-soz). Last year I bought a L’occitane shea oil for my dry legs and it worked a treat! So I’m definitely after another skin saviour from them. I also have my eye on the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate for my face and I’m running a tad low on the Creme de Corps so that’s a definite repurchase!
4. A Staple ‘go with everything’ Coat
You’ve probably spied those grey checked/houndstooth style blazers across Instagram lately which I adore, but there are also coat versions which I love MORE. Those beauts over at ASOS and New Look have some stunners which I am currently eyeing up.
5. The Autumn Berry Lip
I have an embarrassing amount of berry lip products but I am still after the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Glastonberry and I think this is the year I finally get my hands on it. I have almost purchased it about 3 times before but I always cave in at the checkout and instead order a safe nude shade.. typical Zoe.
6. The Chelsea/Ankle Boot
Every year I buy new boots- and every year I struggle to find the perfect pair. I tried on 5 different pairs in New Look at the weekend and none of them were quite right. I’ve seen a few pairs on ASOS I need to order so here’s hoping one of them becomes my new season footwear hero!
