Autumn has arrived, winter is just around the corner, and stores are now stocking coats, jumpers, boots, and all things cosy. It's my favourite time of the year. I was clearly looking forward to the upcoming seasons yesterday, as everything I bought is perfectly suited for a chilly day.
I used to avoid ankle boots, thinking they made my feet look bigger than they already were, but in the last month or so, I've had the 'screw it' mentality. Aside from them making my feet look big, I like how they look, and they'll keep my feet warmer and drier than a pair of dolly shoes will. I'm still after some black ones, but I'm really liking the ones above. They were £24.99 from New Look. They're from the Wide Fit section, and although I don't have particularly wide feet, I generally find the shoes from this range to be comfier. I don't know if they're going to rub, but I wore them for a couple hours last night and they were fine.
I bought my first ever Christmas jumper, too. It was £14 from Primark. You'd think I was really into Christmas for buying a Christmas jumper in September, but I'm really not. I just know that every year they sell out quickly, and I wanted the first pick for potential Christmas-jumper-wearing occasions. I also spotted one in the men's section, which I may have to buy.
The dressing gown is also from Primark (£15). I've recently chucked a load of my dressing gowns away, so didn't feel too guilty about buying another. This one is super soft, and I love the colour.
I was also low on socks, due to a big clear out, and I hadn't bought any in ages, so did some stocking up. I only wear thick socks at home, and since I spend a lot of time there, I have to have plenty available! The ones above are, again, from Primark. The first two sets were £2.50, the winter warmers were £3 (so, so soft), and the last ones were £2.
I'm sure this won't be the last haul of this nature. I still want to get my hands on some more jumpers, boots, and a coat. I've looked at thousands of coats so far (no kidding), and I've yet to find the one. I'd ideally like a light grey, wool coat with a hood. Stores don't seem to like hoods, which is my main problem. If you come across one, let me know!
