Can you believe it is OCTOBER!? I can’t. The months have flown by. I am sad to see the nights drawing in and the warmer weather beginning to fade. However, autumn means one thing in the fashion world… it’s time for scarves and boots!!! Every year I purchase a new blanket scarf (usually more than one) that literally becomes my best friend when the cold kicks in. A good scarf can not only complete an outfit but can be the only comforting thing that reassures you, today isn’t going to be as bad (or as cold) as you think. It’s like a little security blanket that also looks good. It turns into a pillow when you need a nap, a cover when it snows and a full on duvet when it really gets too much. I don’t think people appreciate the power of the blanket scarf!!

Anyway, I grabbed this one in ZARA. I have found they do gorgeous scarves every year, with a wide selection to choose from. As soon as I saw this I knew it would be my new autumn scarf, the colours just scream autumn! Beiges, rusty oranges and blacks are the perfect combination in my opinion.



I am yet to make an autumn boot purchase (it will happen don’t worry) but in the meantime I whipped out some trusty knee highs from Next a couple of years back, these babies have lasted a while! For now I was still wearing leggings, but these will soon change to jeans when the cold really does arrive! Black jeans are also a winter staple in my opinion.

I have a few other blanket scarves I have my eye on so will keep you posted – this is just the first of the season!

This is just one of the types of looks I will be rocking day to day throughout autumn / winter time. All outfit details can be found below!

    I love your whole outfit. I was actually looking for a scarf at Zara yesterday, but didn’t see this one. Now I want one even more 🙂
