Summer is on its way out - total bummer - but I have to say that the idea of getting out my knits again  kind of dulls the pain. I like to ease into autumn by layering jumpers with skirts and eking out the bare legs for just a little bit longer, but then I realised that that would make this blog post basically the same as the one I posted back in spring. Here are a couple of things on my wish list right now:

I'm definitely not ready to get my winter coat out and I always think - what do have left to wear when it gets properly cold if you do that! A big blanket scarf is perfect for bridging the gap between knitwear and outerwear, plus it's a slightly less scary way of dipping into Burberry's blanket cape trend! It looks perfectly nonchalant with a casual weekend look, but is somehow chic and pulled together with tailored pieces too. {1,2)

Turtlenecks are such a classic piece (think Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn), but wearing them with jeans is instantly modern and cool, yet still chic. I'll be wearing chunky knits with skinny jeans and lightweight sweaters with my boyfriend jeans - I might even try it with a pencil skirt. What do you think? {1,2,3,4}

A leather jacket is on my wish list every year - they go with absolutely everything and never go out of style, but I just haven't found the right one yet. I get a pretty hefty discount on lots of designer brands through my work, so it might be time to invest in a great quality one, though I have seen some really good faux versions at H&M and River Island, where I can always rely on a good fit for my body shape. {1,2}
