I think I'm spending more time on fashion blogs and browsing shops online and pinning away because I know I can't buy all these gorgeous new autumn clothes as I won't be able to bring them back home. Yep, living out of 1 suitcase is challenging. Have I said that already?
Anyway, these are my favourite trends for the coming season, and the ones I wish I could spend all of my erasmus grant on...
1. Roll neck jumpers
Winter is coming. Heheh... Can you tell what I've been watching? Anyway, the cold weather certainly is. It's dropped about 10 degrees here in Germany, and just glancing at Twitter I'm sure it has in England too. There's nothing better than a turtle neck jumper to keep you warm and cosy. I used to really dislike wearing these when I was younger, I recall them feeling so restrictive and uncomfortable. But they actually aren't as half bad as I remembered them to be. These can be worn in so many ways too, with a pair of ripped jeans for a more casual look, or with a mini skirt to dress it up a bit.
2. Sleeveless jacket
I have to admit, when I first saw this trend I was a bit like... nope. But it's grown on me in a large way and I'm seriously tempted. They look so effortlessly fashionable and stylish, and are very versatile too. They are perfect for autumn - wearing short sleeves underneath for the milder days and jumpers and many layers for the cooler days.
3. A line skirt
I basically live in jeans. Before I left for Germany, I counted I have nearly 30 pairs of jeans, admittedly at least half of them don't fit me properly and I need to purge, but still. I love jeans. However, A line skirts are my new favourite alternative. They are so cute. I want a tan suede one, a denim one, a corduroy one and a patterned one please.
Talking about suede A line skirts, just about anything suede seems to be on my radar right now. The tan colour is perfect for autumn and it's that bit thicker to keep you toasty warm too. I particularly love suede skirts, but I am also rather liking suede tops, jackets, bags, shoes... you get the picture. Faux suede though guys, or vegan suede.
Aren't they so gorgeous! I'm not a big heel wearer, even though I probably should be giving my (lack of) height but oh I so want a pair. The only thing is in Germany, people would look at you like you've just walked out in a number like this if you headed out in super high heels. It's comfortable/practical shoes only here. I'd probably also break my neck on the cobbled streets but that doesn't seem to stop me gazing at my laptop at them.
