Auntum has fallen and I couldn’t be more excited. Autumn is my favourite season, I love everything from the rusted leaves and the cool autumn breeze to the gorgeous leather, furs, boots and coats of the AW collections. In Ireland the weather is, well, erratic. We don’t get much of a Summer, making it optimally difficult to dress for Summer. Autumn and Winter is far more predictable. Aside from this weather related reason, AW is, by a long shot, always my preferred collection. I love fur and leather, jackets and Crombie coats, sleek blacks, ankle boots, and layering. Oh how I love layering. AW lookbooks and streetstyle is always far more interesting because, quite simply, everyone is wearing more. There is far more styling to be done than throwing on a sundress and gladiator sandals.

And so, as I adore AW so much I have decided to produce a few specialised Wishlist posts for you all this season, in addition to my monthly Wishlists. Above are a few key pieces I am lusting after this September, but I am also working on many more. I will be posting separate specialised wishlists for coats, boots, leather skirts, trousers, bags and Winter accessories throughout the season. An ultimate guide for your AW’13 wardrobe. In addition to this I am working on introducing a page to my header on the blog entitled Shop My Wishlists, where you can click and buy all my favourite pieces from one sartorially beautiful page. What do you all think of this? In other news, I also plan to introduce more beauty related posts to Penny and Polaroids. When I began blogging I wanted to primarily focus on fashion, but now that I have established my blog and am now into my second year of blogging, I am exciting to be bringing you some new and exciting features. Again, I would love to know what you all think.
So, onto my September’s Wishlist. For September I focused on some key transitional pieces to bring you into AW’13. These two structured Tshirts are perfect for this, and in two of my favourite fabrics, crepe and leather. These will be so easily styled and look very chic. Pair the white crepe one with your must-have leather skirt (pencil or mini, worn with black tights) and team the leather style with cigarette pants or dark boyfriend jeans for the weekends. I love these dark, distressed boyfriend jeans from H&M, the style and colour is perfect. Like I said, leather skirts are an AW must-have and following on from last season, asymmetrical styles are everywhere. I wore an asymmetrical black leather skirt (view it here) last season and can’t wait to update my AW wardrobe with some more various styles. I love this elasticated waist, pale grey one from Topshop. Grey leather is beautiful and it makes for a great change from black. I am really loving Topshop’s AW collections thus far, there are so many beautiful pieces on the website at the moment. I love winged handbags and am badly in need of a new black handbag, this Topshop style is perfect AW’13. I have been dying to try Shu Uemura eyelash curlers for ages and finally purchased a pair this week in Dublin but I am yet to test them out, they are supposed to be amazing so I will share a review with you all when I have tried them out. A black bag is essential for your AW wardrobe and this Topshop style couldn’t be more perfect for AW’13. This exact one sold out within days but it is sure to be rereleased and there are many similar styles. Lastly, I already posted these Laila platforms on my Facebook page the moment they were rereleased, they’re simply beautiful.
Until next time,
