One of my favourite things to do during the Autumn months is to go on lovely walks at the weekend through the forest and countryside, taking in the crisp air, adventuring through the woods and looking at all of the beautiful colours in the trees. (There's also a bonus of having a pub lunch at the end of the walk which is always an added incentive I think). So this weekend just gone, me and my boyfriend Charlie decided to have a day out in the area of Beaulieu, which is in the New Forest National Park. The New Forest is filled with a number of different routes to follow for walking and many little villages/towns dotted around for lunch stops. We decided to take the approach of 'walk in a direction and see where you end up' kind of plan, which worked out pretty well as we didn't get completely lost! There are also hundreds of wild horses roaming around which is really nice to see, and most of them are very tame and friendly, so they will come up to say hello too.

Autumn country walks are the perfect opportunity to wrap up warm in your favourite coat and boots and I love the feeling of being outside in the cold air when you're suitably dressed for it! My new Zara coat was perfect for this day, because its very insulated, warm and waterproof without being too bulky, and it also has a zip-out hood for if it starts raining (and you don't want to get caught out in a rain storm in the middle of a forest trust me!). I also decided to wear my Pied et Terre knee-high boots because I thought they would prevent my jeans from getting ruined if there were any muddy patches. They're also really comfortable and are definitely a staple in my shoe collection, and they continue to make a re-appearance every year around this time.

My checked shirt is a new purchase and is something that I felt I was lacking from my wardrobe. I love shirts because they're so easy to throw on and you can layer them under or over different things to change up the look. I always get really hot when I go on a walk and so I thought this would be a good thing to wear underneath my coat because I could roll the sleeves up or down and also do a few buttons up if need be to alternate my body temperature. I also like to wear them oversized so it gives off a more relaxed and casual vibe to my style.

What I wore:
T-shirt: Zara (http://bit.ly/1W221eE)
Jeans - Topshop (http://bit.ly/1LjPFWR)
Boots - Pied A Terre (Similar - http://bit.ly/1OOji54)

Are there any items in your wardrobe that make an annual re-appearance? 

What things do you love doing in the Autumn?
