Autumn Essentials

It may be the end of Summer but there’s a lot to love about Autumn!

Autumn has always been my favourite season. It reminds me that change can be beautiful. As soon as we hit September, even if it’s still warm outside (rare in London, but we do get lucky sometimes!), all I can think of is the sweet smell of roasted chestnuts, shopping for cosy blankets, oversized jumpers and scarves, and of course, a good pair of boots that will see you all the way through to Christmas and beyond!

Here’s your guide to an ethical autumn wardrobe (all under £100!) that will definitely get you excited for the season.
