As much as I loved the delightfully hot summer we had in the UK, I am totally ready for autumn.
I’m not wishing away the sunshine, I simply like to embrace and enjoy each season. We’re lucky we get one of each here, although some are much longer than others.
If you’re here to find out all about the fantastic Shopbop autumn sale then scroll right down to the bottom. The code you need is STOCKUP18 and you’ll get 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off orders of $500 or more. It’s a good idea to shop with a friend to really make the most of the discount.
Scroll down for more info and don’t forget to check out my picks for early autumn.
I can’t quite believe we’re nearing the end of September, I think I said that in my last post but it’s true. This month has gone particularly quickly, more so than July and August.
At the moment I’m finding it really hard to dress for this weather. We’re still in transitional weather here in Sheffield, you just don’t know where you stand. One moment the clouds are dark and it looks like the rain will never stop, the next the sun is out and you have to take off all your cosy layers.
It’s still much warmer than it looks. I’ve been enjoying wearing my autumnal dresses with berets and sunglasses over the last week. The outfit above is an autumn favourite of mine.
Today I’ve picked out some early autumn favourites which include some fantastic finds within the Shopbop sale. The llama Soludos trainers were clearly made for me. I’ve mentioned them before but I think now might be the time I finally make my purchase.
There’s also a pair of Quay sunglasses on my wishlist. I always like this brand because they’re reasonably priced for fun over-sized sunglasses. I’ve added two of my all-time favourite make-up items to this list. One is the Armani Luminous Silk foundation. This one works so well with my sensitive skin and is more of a yellow-toned foundation which is perfect for my skin tone. The second is the good old Marc Jacobs mascara. I’m gutted that John Lewis has stopped stocking the brand, such a shame.

I’ve been loving Cath Kidston this year and managed to snap up a fair few items from their summer collection (click to see my favourite skirt). They’ve now got more of a woodland theme going on for Autumn and I’m loving it, especially the Badgers & Friends PJs.
Recently Shopbop have started to stock Scotch & Soda, a brand both Phil and I love. I’ve been eyeing up the heart jumper for a while now and I’m very tempted. The Superga trainers and yellow beret are 2 items you probably would have guessed I’d like. They’re pretty much my day-to-day favourites.
Finally, there are two items for the home in this post. The first is the blue Smeg kettle. I love the 50s style and have been meaning to get one since we moved house. I also really like the sound of the pumpkin candle, of course I do.
The start of Autumn or perhaps you prefer to go with Fall (I like to use both, why not?) also marks the launch of the Shopbop sale. Their sales are always my favourite and the ones I look forward to each year. I’m always mindful when I shop in the sales, I think it’s important not to buy things for the sake of it. But with this Shopbop sale the timing is perfect, you can stock up on all those autumnal outfits you’ve had your eye on throughout September.
Let me give you the main details:
20% off orders under $500
25% off orders of $500 or more
Promotion code: STOCKUP18
The code can be used on Shopbop and East Dane
