WIOW: Red and Gold

26 Nov

When the shorter days and darker evenings started creeping in, I was thoroughly miserable. But throwing myself into sorting out my autumn/winter wardrobe has definitely helped me cope. Though I still don’t like how dark it is when I have to leave work, I love how beautiful the leaves are looking.

Me and one of my best friends (I hope that’s grammatically correct, tell me if it isn’t) took an early morning walk through a local park to take some seasonal pictures. The park in question was Walsall Arboretum which I love, there are so many things to snap! It gave me a chance to wear a few pieces that I’ve invested in for the upcoming months.

Coat and Jumper from New Look, Bag from Next

My fraying Primark coat has been replaced with a big snug coat from New Look. It’s the first coat I’ve ever owned with a hood, having rebelled against them and my mum for several years. The hood is completely lined with faux fur and it’s wonderful and warm.

I also bought a jumper from New Look in a beautiful autumnal shade. Colours like this really put in the mood for this weather. Together, the coat and the jumper were about £55 and that was after a 20% discount, which I don’t think is too bad. Everyone needs a good winter coat! New Look have got some great ones at the moment, if anyone is looking. I definitely need more jumpers in my life at the moment and I’ll be going back there to find more.

Finally, my absolute staple for this time of year are my red Doc Martens. They’re the best shoes in the world for rain, snow, ice and mud. Everytime I wear them to work I always get people saying they really love them.

I do have a few full length shots but I either look weirdly miserable in them or I’m pretending to be a zombie.. I think my friend and I will just laugh about those to ourselves.

Big thank you to my friend Sabina for taking these pictures for me. I think I may use her budding interest in photography to my advantage whenever I fancy taking pictures or acting like one of the undead. I think she takes wonderful photos, which you can see on her Flickr page. Wish I had a few pics of her too, she is very sartorially savvy herself!

What are your key colours for Autumn?
