As the weather grows chillier here in London, it means one thing for me: time to start layering! This is by far my favorite part of Autumn, combining different textures and materials and creating something completely new! Here, I’ve decided to play with herringbone, cashmere and corduroy! The Quilted Vest 5

I am completely in love with this J.Crew Herringbone Quilted Vest–mainly because it’s such a versatile piece to have in my wardrobe. I can add this piece to almost any outfit–super practical for keeping warm when the weather isn’t quite cold enough for a winter jacket yet. The Quilted Vest 12

Another reason I love Autumn? Time to dust off the riding boots! I basically live in these for the whole season. They’re another staple wardrobe piece–the perfect mix of style and utility. Not only are riding boots chic, they’re also great for everyday wear!The Quilted Vest 4
