For Autumn/Winter this year I decided to create some inspiration boards so that when I do have some extra cash I can shop with a strategy. I actually went to the shops last week and there wasn't a lot of on trend pieces that I really loved so I am going to work on building up classic pieces this season.

I am really lacking good pants and skirts for winter so this is probably one area I need to invest in sooner rather then later. At the moment I am really drawn to bottoms that are in basic navies and black so that they can easily be mixed and matched with my colourful shirts and jumpers. By keeping the bottom palette more basic I am hoping to be able to create more outfits by mixing and matching.

I really needed a good stripey jumper for this winter, this one from ASOS is so soft and lovely. I didn't notice the pink stripe on the cuffs when I ordered it but I really like it, I think I will be wearing it a lot this winter. I also really want some cosy knits for those days where you want nothing more then to be comfy and warm - they also make great layering pieces.

Sometimes I think that florals are just for Spring but I am definitely feeling more drawn towards the Autumn colours of some floral pieces. I am also loving more versatile black and pieces that can be dressed up or down. Whilst I really don't need any new dresses this season I have been wondering about some overalls (I havent worn overalls since I was 11). I always think Naomi looks so wonderful in overalls and I saw a lady rocking overalls at Zara last week so I am definitely tempted to give them a whirl again.

I have an obsession with coats, in Canberra you wear them for nearly five months of the year so it is worth having a couple to choose from. This year I have added the above red and navy coat as they are classic colours that I will wear for years. I also really like the leather sleeves trend and I think the all black option from Zara is a great option to last a few seasons. I am also on the hunt for a great beige trench coat to wear during the transitional weeks.

Oh winter shoes how I love you. I think that shoes are the perfect way to add that little bit of pop to your winter outfit. The yellow and red would look fantastic with the more muted tones of winter. I have also been wating some Hunter wellies for ages and finally got my hands on some, I am now actually looking forward to a rainy day to test them out.
So what are you looking for this season? Any wishlists in the making or are you prepared for the chilly weather? What trends are you liking?
