November Wishlist

I love Autumn, not as much as Christmas but this time of year comes a close second. As soon as the weather gets colder, the leaves start falling from the trees and all the coffee shops start bringing in their festive drinks, I start thinking about my Autumn Wardrobe. Well I start buying things, I start wishing I could have my chunky knits and boots back as soon as spring starts and I sadly have to put them away.

There's just something about Autumn fashion that I love, I think it has a lot to do with the rich colours, the different layers and textures as well as the fact I get to wear my collection of Scarves (I have a bit of an obsession which will probably become more apparent the more I post.) I spend a lot of my time window shopping and looking at things I would love to own which brings about this months wishlist.

1.  Dark Red Studded Jumper - River Island 
 When studs first became a thing, I wasn't too sure but they've grown on me and now I seem to be wanting studded everything. I love the colour of this jumper, as you might be able to tell I have a bit of a thing for reds and it just looks so comfy and perfect for layering with jeans and my leather jacket.

2.  Rouge Allure Lipstick - Chanel
My love affair with Chanel make up started a few years ago when I started working at Debenhams and discovered the joys of staff discount. I own four of these lipsticks (which is definitely an unnecessary amount for one person) and I love the consistency and staying power. The colour I have my eye on is 'Passion' as I am a big fan of a bold lip for any occasion and I'm always on the look out for my perfect red lipstick which is still missing from my life.

3. Naked 2 Palette - Urban Decay
I'm a bit late to the party on this one but this is one of those items that I have saved in my favourites and every now again think about buying. I'll probably never get around to it though as I am pretty loyal to my my MAC palette and the thought of how much it cost is enough to keep me from buying any more high end eyeshadows for the time being. I love the colours in this palette though as I tend to wear a neutral eye for daytime and a brown/taupe smoky eye for nights out.

4. Chunky Star Necklace - Orelia
The name of this is quite deceiving as it is actually quite a delicate necklace which is the style that I tend to favour. I do own a few statement necklaces and collars but I tend to come back to this style again and again. I actually bought this necklace on a trip to London a few years ago but I lost it at the hotel before I even got it home so I would love to replace it.

5. Red Leopard Print Heart Slipper shoes - New Look
These shoes combine three of the things that I absolutely love: red shoes, hearts and leopard print (which I have a major obsession with.) They are definitely going on my Christmas list this year, at the top, in bold letters. They're just so lovely and so me.

6. Burgundy Checked Shirt - Hearts & Bows
For the past few years I've been loving checked shirts, they're so easy to throw on with jeans and boots and for me they add a bit of much needed colour as I sometimes end up wearing a bit too much black. I love this one as it looks so cosy and warm and is the perfect mix of colours for autumn.

7. Swarovski Crystal Mini Mouse Ring - Disney Couture
Swarovski Crystals and Minnie Mouse...No more explanation is needed as to why this ring is tacky but fabulous.

8. Black Block Heel Boot - Miss Selfridge 
As far as I'm concerned shoes only come in two heights: flat and so high I can only just walk (there are a few exceptions to my rule but they have to be either too fabulous to pass up or so classic they go with everything) These fall in to the latter category and I'm still trying to figure out ways that I can buy these and still have money left to eat for the week before payday.

Do you guys have any items that you are loving this month?
