Ciao, welcome back to my blog!
In this post I am going to show you my most worn autumn outfits: for those who are following me on Instagram, it is basically a lookbook of what I have been wearing recently.
First of all (and forever will be), I have been wearing a lot the perfect, timeless, no-brainer combo denim + jumper.
Investing in good basics like knitwear and denim is a great start to keep your style interesting and to be on point at all times.
Add some cool accessories and the trick is done!
I will never stop stressing out the importance of details: jewellery, outerwear and shoes are crucial elements to achieve a stylish look without effort.
That's the fun side of getting dressed in the morning: you can always find a different way to wear your old black sweater without looking shabby or repetitive.
I am a big fan of a capsule wardrobe for several reasons ( logistic, ethical and practical).

I own several pairs of jeans because they are by far my most worn bottom piece: I mainly wear skinny jeans, which is the most flattering fit on my body shape and I invested in neutral colours, such as light grey, charcoal, black, a classic denim wash and white. I also have a straight pair in a light wash and a pair of mom jeans in a dark wash.
In terms of trousers, I only have a couple of slim fit tailored trousers for when I want to look more professional and in the future, I would like to purchase an extra pair in a more relaxed fit.
This year didn't buy many new pieces as my cashmere sweaters are still in excellent condition. I must admit that despite my hate for acrylic, I fell in love with a beautiful camel jumper and I ended up buying it. It is surprisingly warm and it doesn't feel so itchy on the skin.
Shoes are my downfall. I splurged a fair amount of money on them lately, but I really needed some brand new ones as I spend 10 hours a day on my feet (also my posture is a bit funny and my shoes got worn only on one side).
Every time I buy a new pair, something old has to go: that's my one in, one out rule to keep my shopping habits under control.
I got rid of my old Dolce&Gabbana trainers (they were begging me to retire) and I replaced them with suede pointy black boots.
Same story for my old, not so white any more trainers that I bought years ago in TKMAXX and I don't remember the brand. I replaced them with a new pair of white trainers with a bold detail on the side that I love.
From last year, I kept my pair of burgundy boots with block heels from Mango, a pair of tan boots from Aldo and another pair of edgy snake boots from Oliver Bonas.
Short dresses are my next favourite thing to wear after jeans and I usually wear them with a jumper and a comfy pair of boots.
They are versatile and easy to dress up or down in autumn!
I currently have 3 mini skirts and a midi skirt.
If I have to choose to show off a part of my body during the colder months, I'd definitely choose legs: I am not that cold when my upper body is well wrapped up and I am wearing good quality shoes (and insoles!)

But don't ask me to wear a deep V neck because I couldn't bear it under 15 degrees (and surely the next day I will be sick in bed....)
I have been wearing a lot of my "second hand but grand" (like Emma Hill says) eBay purchases: my beige teddy coat and my grey checked coat from Next.
Of course, I didn't let my other old favourites in the wardrobe.
As you could see from the pictures, my style is rather minimal and I don't like to add many details, however, I always wear jewellery and I bring with me my sunglasses.
I will also wear most of these outfits during the winter months, I will only add a big, chunky scarf and gloves.
