As if it's scarf weather again! Autumn has that certain familiar feeling that makes you want to wrap up and wear various deep shades of red, green and mustard and I'm excited to rediscover my coats and layer creatively again. It's no secret that I'm sucker for most of the designer collaborations out there (I lost count at the eight that I seem to own already) so was delighted to try my hand at styling a leopard print scarf from the Somerset by Alice Temperley collection. The neutral colourway made it perfect for teaming with numerous prints so I kept this as a theme and decided to see how 'clashy' I could get, whilst introducing you to some of my Autumn wardrobe.

Inadvertently through doing this challenge, I've ended up teaming up the scarf with a few other collaborative pieces I own. Somehow in between preparing for Bestival, I managed to get myself to Uniqlo for one of the Orla Kiely dresses before they sold out. I don't usually suit smocky dresses, but I'll make allowances for this because of the simple graphic print and how it looks with a bright pair of tights. I've been in need of a few more dresses I can just throw on without thinking about and this fits the bill perfectly.

I love rediscovering pieces from previous seasons and I'm back to living in last year's parka and Breton sweatshirt again to protect myself from the elements. The scarf is a great way to add another pattern into this look and I like the fact that it's not your typical leopard print colourway. I can tell my Mum has her eye on this already and I'm going to have to hide it somewhere creatively in my room.

Meet my new JW Anderson for Topshop skirt, the style I was determined to get when I first saw the collection. It's 100% silk with a quilted finish, hopefully meaning that it will be warm and practical for the months ahead and perfect for everyday use and any parties I might (hopefully) be going to. I mentioned before that I didn't buy the matching top and prefer it on it's own with something plain to counteract it. Olivia tried it on with a lovely sweater the other day and I know Elisabeth has it too, I think a new blogger uniform is developing!
Thanks to Lucy for taking the photos! Which look is your favourite?
