Autumn for me is about digging out old favourites and pairing them with something new. These shorts are possibly the comfiest piece of clothing I own and I adore the vintage style florals on them, especially paired with the corduroy fabric which harkens back to a carefree childhood . I can imagine these, layered up with sheer shirts peeping out of wooly jumpers, topped off with a faux fur to give you a heritage/vintage style look, worthy of any lookbook… 
I am always amazed at how versatile these shorts are  and I absolutely adore them but I have to wear them with my top tucked in, or short t-shirts because they are just so short! If I wore this top untucked, I am pretty sure it would be longer than the shorts are… Seriously cannot get enough of these boots, I would wear them to sleep in if I could! I am also really impressed with these Primark tights. They were £2.50 for 3 pairs and have kept me warm and cosy (They supposedly have some sort of temperature control technology?!!) whilst matching my Autumn staplesperfectly.

    I agree! Autumn is about comfort and style, my staple piece is my black duffle coat I got from topshop 4yrs ago, give it a dry clean each winter and it’s still as good as new, as it’s black can just accessorise it with anything too!

    I love those shorts! They look great with the pink top. I’m tempted to try shorts with tights this winter! x
