Monochrome Monochrome Check Skirt Clarks Ankle Boots Clarks Ankle Boots

Top: Primark, Skirt: Topshop, Ankle Boots: c/o Clarks


Autumn has me excited, so incredibly excited! The change in the season brings with it beautiful colours ranging from reds, oranges and warm browns and also gives me a perfect excuse for wearing my scarves at any given opportunity without any questions asked. Speaking of colour you won't find me sporting much of it, don't get too excited however what you will see here are some rather awesome ankle boots that I picked up from Clarks very recently.

Boots and me have a bit of an awkward relationship because I fall in love with so many yet struggle to actually find a pair that feel comfortable, that are not too high and which more importantly provide me some form of grip for walking on soggy wet leaves. Clarks has always been a store I have turned to purely because they do half sizes and because I know that I'll be getting a good quality pair of shoes. When it comes to clothing I'll always spend more on a good coat and decent footwear, everything else within reason can be skimped out on. With two zips one being for decoration I think that these are pretty fantastic and that they will see me through autumn paired up with skinny black jeans in particular.

I had being waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear this skirt from Topshop which was really popular last year. Luckily for me I snapped this up in the sale at the beginning of the year and waited patiently to bring it out for this autumn and winter. Paired up with a simple black top and the Macay Halle Black Leather Ankle Boots I think I may just have found my first autumn outfit of the year whereby there is no scarf in sight. Who am I kidding; I'll be hunting down a dogtooth scarf asap, oh how I love a clash of print!

    I love this outfit! The skirt is so darn cute and I love the fact you managed to get this in the sale ;) I find there is always something so rewarding when you spy something when it's full price and then it's in the sale. Your boots are really cute as well, I love Autumn for pulling out the ankle boots! :) xxxx

  3. Love this! I naturally love black and white clothes over anything else. In the Frow inspired me to add a lot of colour to my wardrobe during the Summer months, but now I'm gravitating back to my usual monochrome style. Love the checks too!

  12. Wonderful autumn pieces you're rocking here, Amy - I love that skirt! Great boots, too - though I agree, it's always so hard to find a pair that doesn't make me slip over on a wet or icy pavement...x
