I love October. Aside from Halloween and the Autumn vibes, it's also my birthday. I don't tend to make a fuss but it really does excite me, and I look forward to treating myself to a new outfit or two. On the 19th I'll be 24 which is a little daunting as I still feel 21 in the head. I don't tend to buy myself things that often as I'm saving up for my first house, so this feels like a great time to treat myself while I can! I've chosen accessories, clothing and shoes for this list, as I've already created a beauty wishlist for my birthday.




Kate Spade Leather Cross Body Bag (£235)
It's the second most expensive item on the list but I believe it's worth every penny. It's in the colour Cherry which seems so autumnal but is also available in Hazel and Black. I've not got a bag in this colour and it would go with so many outfits.

Pink Beaten Tassel Earrings (£10)
At first when I was looking for some statement earrings I did want pom pom ones, but in reality, I think I'd wear these more often. They're pink tassels with gold detailing and they would go well with other items on this list.

Dogeared Rose Gold Plated 'Let Imagination Shine' Crescent Necklace (£52)
I've seen similar necklaces at a higher price point but they're not a reasonable price for me. This Crescent Necklace is a rose gold plated sterling silver with an adjustable chain. Most of these necklaces I've seen are in gold but I think the copper/rose gold look is more appealing to me.

Mister Feather Necklace In Rose Gold (£38)
Feathers look beautiful to me, and this would go well with the crescent necklace too. The feathers look dainty and would add a bohemian vibe to your outfit.

Olivia Burton English Garden Watch (£82)
Until I met Andy I had never owned a watch as an adult. Now I have a few but I'm looking for a more colourful watch to go with pretty outfits. This English Garden watch by Olivia Burton is exactly what I'm looking for, with beautiful flowers and a chalk blue strap. It looks more summery but it's something I'd wear year-round.

Floral Embroidered Leather Cross Body Bag (£45)
I already own an embroidered bag, but it more of a Spring bag as it's pale pink. This would be perfect all year round as its leather with pink-toned flowers, green leaves and stud detailing.





Navy Ribbed Velvet Wrap Front Jumpsuit (£24.99)
I'll be honest, I've never owned a jumpsuit before. They've never appealed to me for the same reasons that playsuits haven't as I feel they don't compliment my body shape. However, the wrap style would compliment my bust, with the belt bringing me in at the waist which would look a lot better on me that your standard jumpsuit. I'm well aware that the trousers would probably reach my ankles as I'm on the shorter side but I don't mind getting crafty and hemming them myself.

Warehouse Drawstring Waist Faux Fur Collar Parka (£99)
I do love wrapping myself up in a big coat, and when I saw this one by Warehouse I fell in love with it. I don't own a Khaki-coloured coat and this looks so warm and cosy. It has a faux fur trim with a large hood and has drawstrings at the waist to pull you in.

Moon River Twist Stripe Midi Dress (£80)
This feels very vintage to me, and last year I was looking for something like this but never found a midi version that was true to my taste. This Moon River dress is the perfect match with simple detailing and roll-up sleeves.

Balfern Leather Biker Jacket (£318)
This is the most expensive item on my wishlist but I feel it's fully justified. It's hard to find a high-quality leather jacket and this is a slim fitting one that gets more supple with each wear. It's motorcycle-inspired with a belted hem and zip cuffs. I would wear this all the time if I were to own it.

Pink Tiered Sleeve Jumper (£19.99)
The layered sleeve trend is at its height right now and I love the look of this. It takes a plain jumper and turns it into something unique and would look amazing paired with a few items on this list too.

Noisy May White Messy Bun T-Shirt (£12)
I pretty much have my hair in a messy bun every day as it's so thick it gets in my way. I love a good slogan tee and for £12 you can't go wrong. To be fair, I'd wear this whilst blogging at home or whilst I'm out shopping.




Navy Suedette Block Heel Sandals (£19.99)
Although it's not really the weather for sandals, for the occasional meal out I don't mind wearing something open-toed. They're a great alternative to full-on heels, with a heel height at 11cm and they're in my favourite colour so it's a bit of a no-brainer here.

Sweetie Embroidered Pumps (£26)
I'm still loving the embroidered trend, but I don't own anything embroidered in the footwear department. These pumps would go really well with cigarette-style trousers or more casually with some skinny jeans. I think they're a great price too.

Leather Bisque Rose Gold Converse (£62.99)
I've been on the lookout for a new pair of Converse for a while now. I've been wearing them for almost ten years but haven't had a new pair in three years. I definitely think it's time to pick up a new pair. These Converse are a pale pink, with rose gold eyelets and branding on the tongue. They're so pretty!

Adidas Originals Campus Trainers (£80)
I tend to only have shoes like Converse or running trainers, with little in between. The retro look of the Campus trainers really appeals to me, especially with the pink and white colours. I did originally want Gazelles but these are more 'me'.

Vans Old Skool In Black (£54.99)
It feels like everyone has these right now but I lost my old vans at the end of my first year at uni (we think somebody took them!) and I've never gotten over it. They were my go-to shoe so I feel like it's time to replace them with some Old Skool alternatives.

Miss KG Pom Pom Flat Shoes (£55)
I don't really own anything with pom poms on despite me thinking they're adorable. I love the whole 'millennial pink' trend right now and these would add a bit more colour to my shoe collection. Plus I'd be able to wear them with tights now it's winter.

Brick Knitted Sock Boots (£36)
They'd go pretty well with the Kate Spade bag as they're a similar colour although these too come in a variety of shades. I've got similar boots in black leather but these look more casual and could be worn throughout Winter too.
