Autumn Must Haves.

With the arrival of March, it's time to say goodbye to summer, beach days and bikinis; and whilst it's sad to say farewell to the warmer days I'm looking forward to dressing in the fashions of the cooler months; hello jeans, knits, boots and scarves. Here are my top picks to embrace the autumn season before the chill of winter well and truly sets in.

First and foremost, an essential item to go with every outfit - ankle boots. Whether you pair them with jeans, tights, dresses, skirts or shorts; these little booties beauties are guaranteed to go with everything and provide some trans-seasonal warmth too. I've gone for a neutral brown shade so they can be worn with everything.

Next, you can't go past a knit in a neutral shade to pair with your favourite jeans and aforementioned boots. From April to October I live in jeans, knits and boots; it's my favourite outfit choice. I love this cream ribbed design from Witchery with its statement hem.

I don't know about you, but as soon as autumn rolls around I suffer from cold-season-dry-skin. Enter this delicious little butter body that is sure to keep your skin supple and soft. With its combination of coconut oil and shea butter you'll smell amazing.

My pick of lipstick shades for the season is this deep-wine-burgundy-red. Perfect for sultry lips this season. Love this shade from M.A.C.

An autumn essential is of course a scarf; perfect for those in-between temperature days where a t-shirt is too chilly but a jacket is too much. I love this pale blue with its paisley print. Its soft structure makes it great to hang loose, tie or wrap for a multitude of styles.

And finally who can go through the cooler seasons without a trusty pair of jeans. I'm lusting after this pair from J Brand with its mid-rise waist that creates a longer looking leg.

What are your must haves this autumn?
