Autumn Outfit: Burgundy and Plaid Prints

 Plaid shirt - Monki
Faux leather shorts - Forever 21
Black tights - Primark
Burgundy snood - Primark
Red satchel bag - eBay
Doc Martens Serena 


Although autumn has come and gone, the outfits for the season are still relevant for winter! I'm not a huge fan of cold weather and I much prefer to be in the company of the sun, but I do like to layer clothing items together. It keeps me warm and it looks stylish. It's a win-win situation! :)

I'm usually drawn to warm colours so I love to wear anything that's burgundy coloured during this time of the year. It instantly perks up my mood and it makes me feel all cosy too (which is saying a lot as my fingers have turned into icicles). The colour scheme in my plaid shirt (it's only £19 from Monki!) complemented the burgundy snood completely too.

I wouldn't class this as a particularly 'feminine' or 'girly' outfit so heels were out of the question and were instead replaced with my comfortable Doc Martens. I bought the Serena pair from Amazon a few months ago and I absolutely love them. After reading a few forums, I thought it'd take around two months to wear the boots in but they were fine from the first time I wore them. I highly recommend them if you're in the market for a new pair of winter boots. I hope they last me a good few years!

There's only two teaching weeks left of my winter semester at university. It's scary and I strangely don't want it to end although I'm looking forward to getting the deadlines out of the way. What have you got planned this week?

Take care,

Shu :)

p.s. I made an 'Autumn/Fall Fashion Trends' video on my YouTube channel - it's embedded below if you're interested! :)
