Autumn has fallen, the days are getting shorter, there’s a chill in the air, today is the first of September and it’s the time of year we all brush off our staple boots and leather jackets. I received these burgundy western ankle boots from Penneys as a gift from their press team a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t wait to wear them. Although I love ankle boots and bare legs for a Summer look, these boots are the epitome of autumnal boots. The past few seasons have seen burgundy and oxblood tones as a key trend for AW. I adore burgundy leather particularly, and I of course have an affinity for western cowboy boots, so I was very excited to style these.

In keeping with an Autumnal palette, I teamed the boots with a very simple grey and black outfit. Leigh jeans from Topshop are a wardrobe must-have, soft, comfortable material yet they hold very well, the ultimate skinny jeans style. Topshop is also a favourite of mine for leather jackets. This jacket is two years old and still looks brand new, they rereleased the same style in AW’12, understandably as it is the perfect leather jacket and at an affordable high street price. I also picked up this gorgeous bag in, once again, Topshop last year and still love it. The colour is beautiful and it’s the perfect size. I love baggy Tshirts and Zara is always a great choice for them. I am actually wearing this charcoal one back to front for this outfit as the scoop neck suited the outfit better. For the first time in a long time I am wearing silver jewellery, which compliments the tones of the outfit.
Tomorrow is a very exciting day for me as I am shooting with OohLaLa Magazine in Dublin alongside some of Ireland’s top bloggers so stay tuned with Penny and Polaroids on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to keep updated!
Until next time,
