Autumn is coming and I couldn't be more ready, give me jeans, boots, jumpers and scarfs and I am a happy girl! However September is notorious for being an in-between month where we can have warm sunny days but also start to feel winter with rain, wind and cold. To prepare for this George at Asda challenged me to make a Summer outfit Autumn ready with their range of denim and knitwear. I was definitely up for this challenge and chose my items ready to get into that Autumn vibe.
My first key item for transitioning into Autumn is these Wonderfit High Waisted Skinny Jeans* in a dark blue, they fit amazingly because of their stretchy material, and they're thin enough so you're not sweltering on those warm September days. High waisted jeans are my go to item of clothing, casual or a bit more dressed up, they work just as well with converse as they do with some high heels. My second staple item comes from the knitwear section. This lightweight Patterned Wrap* is that perfect throw on for when you need an extra layer but it's not time to dig out the thick woolies. I love the print on this, and the colours are so gorgeous, not your classic A/W shades, but I think the darker blue brings it into Autumn nicely.
Summer often means casual tops with denim shorts, something like this 'I like you a Latte' T-Shirt*, which as a Latte lover totally called to me. Paired with jeans instead of shorts, a pair of converse and the gorgeous blanket wrap over the top as an added layer this outfit is definitely my easy Summer to Autumn look. The top is a really nice quality, however I did size up from my normal size and I'm glad I did as this isn't a top I'd want 'hugging' my curves. I paired the outfit with this Fringe Bucket Bag*, a trend that has been pretty popular this Summer but will easily work for so many Autumn outfits.
Maxi dresses are definitely a Summer must have, but they're not something I'd usually think about wearing in the cooler months, however I think I've been proven wrong. This Black Maxi Dress* instantly becomes Autumn ready with the blanket wrap, a hidden pair of tights if needed and any pair of shoes that keep your toes warm. The fringe bag also brings this outfit into the Autumn. As soon as I put this maxi on I fell in love, it fit beautifully, and with the gathered waist it gave me a lovely shape. The material isn't too thin but also doesn't feel heavy. If you're looking for a maxi dress that would work well for this season I'd definitely recommend checking it out.
I can't wait for Autumn to be in full swing so I can't start bringing out my jumpers, boots and scarfs. Until then I'll keep these transition pieces at the front of my wardrobe! I'm really impressed with George's new season items, I really want to get my hands on some more bits! Check out George's Demin & Knitwear for some really lovely pieces.
