Autumn Wardrobe | 5 Quick Updates!

Sunglasses Shop BE3096 Black Gold Frame
It was summer, you were wearing a bikini and wondering how many times you can listen to the same summer tunes before getting tired of them and bam! suddenly it's sort of, kind of Autumn.  Can we all  just agree that this new season has literally appeared out of nowhere?!  It's around about this time of year that we're bombarded with wishlists and wardrobe updates that encourage forking out your savings on an entirely new wardrobe.  But before you remortgage your home, take a peek at my following five suggestions that serve as quick updates to your wardrobe.  Needless to say, accessories are included, because I'm a firm believer that accessories are never so important as they are than in Autumn/Winter, when we're cocooned in layers upon layers of clothes!  Anyway, if I manage to save just one reader from selling a kidney to fund their new Autumn wardrobe, then I consider my work here done...

After a summer of glowing skin, it's pretty easy to feel a tiny bit disheartened about our skin in Autumn while we're adjusting to a new skincare regime, right?  No problem!  That's when gorgeous new shades enter the picture to cover (some of) our sins.  These Burberry beauties are the latest addition to my collection and I'm completely smitten with the cats eye design (surprise, surprise).  Oh and fabulous news, I've teamed up with Sunglasses Shop to offer readers of A Glass Of Ice 15% off across their website to spend on designer sunglasses - enjoy!

Never trust anyone who doesn't get excited by cold weather footwear.  Ankle boots, knee high boots and OTK boots.  Stiletto, pointed boots with studs trailing up the toes.  Velvet OTK boots with embellished block heels.  Shearling and suede knee highs with gold chains trailing up the backs.  Ugh, any and every form gets my pulse racing.  Tell me I'm not the only one?  Don't leave it until you find yourself heading out in open-toe sandals in the freezing cold; find one pair of classic and comfortable boots to see you through the next few month asap.


A s k   y o u r s e l f   t h r e e   q u e s t i o n s :


Will they go with most outfits in my wardrobe?


Are they comfortable to wear for hours on end?


Will I still love them in two months from now?

The reason accessories become ten million times more important once the temperature drops, is because our outfits are covered most of the time by a coat - therefore making the coat suuuuper important.  This is probably my fave item to look for, and something I'm still searching for with Autumn in mind.  Once again, ask yourself the important questions such as whether the colour will work with your wardrobe, and of course... does it actually keep you warm?  Oh and if your budget allows, aim to find two coats: one for casual (such as a shearling biker) and one for smarter occasions

Hi, my name's Gabrielle and I'm a jumper addict.  So, apparently chunky knit jumpers are trending this season and I've never laughed so hard because I already have tons - and I'm guessing you do too?!  The problem with chunky knit jumpers, however, is that's it's easy to become less in awe of them as times goes on.  And just like that beauties, I've provided you with the perfect opportunity to start browsing for another chunky knit jumper to add to your already extensive collection.

You're welcome.

Ooh.  Once you start this search, you may never stop.  Accept the challenge at your own risk.  I've been looking for a new season bag for the past three weeks and still looking for the 'perfect' one.  Something to keep in mind is how the runways have been featuring much more flamboyant and ornate options for the seasons ahead.  It could be a lot of fun to bring this into your new bag bestie, but keep in mind whether it fits all of your essentials!  Can't be heading out without that phone charger and emergency Mars Bar...

  4. Your printed dress is beautiful and these are great tips! I've had the same winter boots for a few years now - they continue to be comfortable and make me happy so I have never replaced them! Comfortable shoes are a must when I'm running around so much, haha!

    Hope you are having a great week so far :)

  5. Love the outfit Gabrielle. Animal print of any kind is my face. I so agree with the coat being so important. This year, in addition to my classic black, I would love to get a lovely red and perhaps a deep plum!

    Thanks for the tips.

  10. It is still very warm here, so I haven´t put much thought into my autumn wardrobe, but I think I might need to look for a new cardigan to start transitioning. And, after reading your post, probably for a snake skin dress that I will never wear.

  14. Never trust anyone who doesn't get excited by cold weather footwear. LOL Gabrielle! I'm with you 100% on that one ;p That dress is stunning and you look smashing as always! It's actually cooled down in NYC this week and I was quite excited to wear a new Chinti & Parker jumper I had acquired over the summer today. I also can't wait to break out my new ankle boots.

  15. Autumn was here since last week and to be honest, we never did transition into it. This year it was freaking, bloody hot Summer and it felt like the very next day, BAM! Rain, wind and icy coldness.

  17. Love that you called bags our "arm candies" hehe. And oh my that outfit is stunning! Love the slit details and the snakeskin print!

    And I definitely agree with you on coats being a crucial part of winter outfits, problem is I'd inevitably spend too much on purchasing various different coats and outers!

  26. I loveee dressing for autumn. Whilst everyone is putting together their autumnal wish list, I'm trying my best to keep to what I already have. Coats are one of my favourite clothing pieces; I have so many and I keep telling myself that I'm not allowed to buy anymore! I'm also excited to bring out more of my jewelry. In the summer, I didn't wear very much jewelry because I like being as bare as possible in the heat! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  31. I love the outfit Gabrielle! It's really bold but also super classy. You nailed it! I hope you find the perfect bag soon - I know the feeling of looking for a piece but not quite finding what you want yet... As for me, I'll be looking for the perfect leopard print skirt. I want it midi, a little floaty, and I hope I'll find exactly what I want!

  37. I am in love with your dress and those shades are beautiful! These 5 quick updates are all really great. I think the 3 questions for the shoes are great to ask whenever buying something new for your wardrobe. Making sure it matches with what you already own is a really get tip. And coats are my favorite for autumn because once you find one you love you can wear it tons!

  47. This post is seriously a treat for the eyes. Not only are you absolutely stunning, these have all been edited to absolute perfection. I am DYING for a pair of velvet OTK boots myself but think I will have to keep dreaming, as I guarantee I'd destroy them on the first wear!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh for sure, cold weather footwear is the best! I live in boots so for me now that I'm in the reverse situation to you, once the weather warms up and I can't wear boots anymore it's so annoying!
