Lucky number eight

The return to England and it’s weather plus finding a whole host of new arrivals landing in stores has led to a rather strange excitment for Autumn/Winter. My bank account may be shaking in fear, but I’m ready to embrace the chill…
Number Eight Clothing may be on the more luxury side of things, but I wanted to share a little wishlist of what I like to call “investment” basics…invest well and they will last you for years!

1. Barbour Reversible Derby; a twist on the traditional style I am determined to own a Barbour jacket of some kind. Once, the idea of spending so much on a coat would have induced palpitations, but since my father purchased one earlier this year, I can attest to the quality and timeless style. I really love this checked version for a twist on the classic.

2. I’d not heard of Irish brand Dubarry before, but whilst browsing I was pulled towards the Somerset bag (medium). It looks perfect and substantial for time spent tramping around in the cold and wet…I think I am starting to err towards country-side chic, but I’ll cope!

3. Everyone knows Hunter boots by now, they need little explanation. I’m smitten with the magenta tones of this original short pair.

4. I’ve not long ago mentioned Ted Baker on the blog, and here it is again. Autumn/Winter means looking for the perfect LBD for upcoming festivities (mentioning no words beginning with C) and I adore the embellished collar on this otherwise simple dress.

5. Oh knitwear, my true weakness and the highlight of the colder seasons. This year I’m looking to invest in chic, classic pieces that will suit both work and play. This sweater with a scarf by Yaya is exactly what I had in mind!

Have you started planning  Autumn/Winter yet? Be warned, there may be an influx of wishlist blog posts!

Take a look at Number Eight, too, let me know what you think…I’m not very familiar with the shop, yet, but so far I approve!
