October Mon Amour

An Autumnal Outfit of The Day

Today was the first day in Paris where I could finally walk around comfortably wearing what is probably the softest sweater I have in my closet. Autumn is a time of year that makes me feel so nostalgic for starting back in school, celebrating my birthday with my friends and family and of course, Halloween. I love this season because it’s a beautiful feeling having these memories and being able to cosy up with your favourite knitwear, feeling completely protected from the cold by the fabric as I clasp a hot drink (or in my current case, a chai latte) in my hands.

This is a season that not only feeds my indulgence for the aesthetic of crispy gold leaves on the footpaths and everything pumpkin flavoured, but autumn is my favourite season in terms of style as well.

One of my first experiences of love at first sight was back in 2015 when Gucci launched their iconic Dionysus handbag as part of their fall/winter collection. Ever since, this bag has taken the fashion world by storm with influencers left and right wearing it all over Instagram as well as it having become a staple piece for so many of the fashionistas renowned for having the most coveted closets in the world.

Recently in Paris I found an online store called The Archiduchess that has a selection of bags not all too dissimilar to that of the Gucci Dionysus for a fraction of the price so today I thought I would share how I style it with you guys along with an outfit I have been loving for autumn here in the city of lights.

An Autumnal Outfit of the Day (Featuring Topshop)

Between chai lattes, carving pumpkins and sweater weather, October has always been my favourite month of the year. There’s just something about the multi-coloured leaves drifting down from the brassy trees, the sunsets on the shorter evenings and the beginning of the colder weather that just radiates so much comfort and cosiness.

There can be no doubt that when Autumn arrives, one of the best things about the season is the feeling of wrapping up roastily and toastily in layers and layers of warm clothing. Not only just because it’s a super practical way of staying warm as the weather changes, but also because the more layers you add to your look, the more creative you can be with your outfit.
