You might notice a bit of a difference with this month's wishlist post - instead of pastels aplenty, darker, more autumnal shades are creeping in. Let's face it, summer is drawing to a close in all honesty, and the shops are becoming stocked up with autumn clothes galore. Whilst some people love autumn, I do feel a bit sad at the thought of leaving all the summer days behind, although I am a big fan of A/W clothing. I thought I would mix a bit of summer and autumn together in this post to ease you all into the transitional period!

First up, I feel like this floral dress from Joules is the ideal transitional piece, perfect for wearing on those chilly September mornings. It's pretty enough that it can still pass off as a summery piece, but as it's long-sleeved and a chocolatey colour, it is also perfect for autumn. I can see me wearing it with some chunky boots, a big scarf and thick tights come those cooler days. Joules country clothing always makes me think about windy autumn days, getting wrapped up in scarves and donning floral wellies - anyone else feel like that? Next on my list, I couldn't resist putting in this donut clutch bag. New Look have excelled themselves when it comes to funky clutches, and this donut one is my favourite so far. I need it in my life - perfect for wearing on a night out, and sweet enough without any calories! For the third item on my wishlist I popped another pretty piece from Joules in - these gorgeous little hare earrings are super cute and a really good price. I think they'd make a lovely present for an animal-lover.

Say cheese! The camera bag from Accessorize is something I've had my eye on for a while now, so naturally it had to make the post. I think it's neutral enough that it would go with any outfit, and you guys know I love a quirky bag. It's definitely a bit pricier at £29, but it is Accessorize so it's to be expected. At the opposite end of the pricing scale, this floral makeup bag from H&M is super cheap at just under £4, and is such a cute design I couldn't resist putting it in. Sticking with florals, these shorts I found on Miss Selfridge are again, a perfect transitional piece, and there is also a matching top available - co-ord alert! Finally, I thought I would throw a beauty product in to mix things up a bit, especially considering I have decided I need this in my life. Whilst I love my current brow product of choice, watching too many YouTube tutorials has lead me to lusting after the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade. I'm not too sure which shade I'll need yet but I know this is something I just have to have.
