Autumn and winter are my favourite seasons and my wardrobe reflects that. I am waiting for the opportunity to wear all the lovely woollens that are filling my wardrobe, wrap myself in a blanket on the sofa and drink copious amounts of hot chocolate. I love autumn because:

  • The weather gets cooler and it’s more socially acceptable to wear jumpers and wooly tights and be wrapped up in blankets. I spend most seasons like this!
  • The way the outside changes, from to green to red and orange.
  • Lighting fires and candles as the nights draw in.
  • Heading out on long walks, with scarves and gloves
  • The perfectly acceptable excuse to hibernate (I’m dreaming about hibernating in the picture below. Don’t think Naomi Campbell has got anything to worry about from me!)

Barbour Knitwear

I do love a good jumper too. So much so that when it’s warm and it’s too hot to wear a jumper, I’m at a loss as to what I should wear! It’s also one of the reasons I love Harry Potter so much. Hermione has such a great jumper selection. I would love her wardrobe! So when the folks over at Barbour asked if they could send me a jumper, I was so excited! And I’ve been waiting and waiting for the weather to get cool enough and for autumn to actually arrive before I wrote about it. (So long summer, you’ve outstayed your welcome!)

Barbour Jumper

I love this (c/o) jumper, it’s warm enough that you can wear it on it’s at own but also roomy enough to add layers underneath when it gets colder. I’m also really like that the v neck isn’t that low, as it means you don’t *have* to wear something underneath if you don’t want to. It’s also smart enough to wear to work or the office, and wouldn’t look out of place down the pub or on a ramble in the country. Whether you want to dress it up with a scarf, dress it down with a gilet and jeans, it’s going to be my go to jumper over autumn and winter for sure. All I have to do is make sure I don’t ruin it in the wash and it should last for ever. Now that’s what I call a good jumper! I think it would look great with these:

Autumn Wardrobe


Roskestal Skirt – Seasalt // Smithy Bootcut Jeans – Fat Face //

Courtney Black Shoes – Bourgeois Boheme // Chelsea Boots – Wills //

Pair the jumper with the skirt and heels and a funky pair of woolen tights and you’ve got a great Sunday lunch outfit. Heading out for a brisk walk with the dog? Throw on the jumper with the jeans and these Chelsea boots and head out on a ramble! The perfect Autumn outfit!

Are you looking forward to changing your wardrobe and adding woollens and tights? Or are you missing the summer already?

*Disclosure: I was sent the jumper for review purposes. As ever, opinions are my own.

  1. I do like the jumper you’ve chosen and I have some jumpers I enjoy, plus I sleep better when it is cooler but whilst the thought of Autumn might seem romantic now, when there are months of relentless cold, illness, darkness stretching on and on unending, summer’s joyful continuation is much missed and much mourned. I’ll be hanging onto summer with all my might. X

    • Thanks! I wanted something that would go with lots of outfits. I know what you mean, after a few months of the dark and the cold, it’ll all lose its charms and I’ll be hankering after the warmth of summer. But that’s why I love being in a country that has such distinct seasons. When you get bored of one, it’s usually time for them to change!
