Autumn fashion is some of the best, people go mad for layering, beige toned dresses and cashmere – all the cashmere in fact! But for me, it really comes down to just two pieces that I get to bust out at this time of year…
First up, are my Mary Poppins lace up victorian boots. These are some of the comfiest shoes I own and are so eye catching, I’ve actually worn them to many a casting over the years and instead of being asked “so what have you been working on lately?” I get “Oh my gosh WHERE are your boots from!?!” which you know, is a pretty awesome way to kick start an audition!!
They are from New Look, many, MANY seasons ago (I actually think I’ve had them since 2011!) I wish they would do them again, I was in a show at the time when a fellow actress walked in, wearing the black version and I was like “HELLO, where are these from please and thank you!?!”, only the brown were left by that point, but I scooped a pair nonetheless and haven’t looked back.
My second Autumnal Fave is this absolute hero of a piece from Marks & Spencer’s – the cape coat. It’s gorgeous and I love that it has a hood – comes in very handy it has to be said!!
I need to be specific to when I wear this because it is pretty open, so unless you are layered up to the max underneath, it really is too cold in Dublin to wear this in Winter, so Autumn is where it truly sings (and makes me want to twirl apparently) but doesn’t great fashion do that for everyone..?
What are your favourite pieces to wear during Autumn?
