Autumn Workwear Wishlist

After a pretty horrendous summer here in Australia, the cooler change couldn’t come soon enough. Our summers here are notoriously hot and as you all know, our most recent summer had periods of extreme dry heat that had devastating impacts.

Now more than ever, Autumn brings a huge sense of relief and reprieve from those hot and sticky conditions.

There are so many reasons why Autumn is my favourite season – the beautiful colours of the foliage, the temperate climate, the lightweight-jacket weather (and not yet needing to layer up like a marshmallow before heading out the door…). My husband and I also got married during the Autumn so it carries a lot of sentimentality for me.

In terms of fashion, I have my eye on a few pieces at the moment. Here is my curated Autumn workwear wishlist with all the bits and bobs I’d love to add to my wardrobe:

#1 – A cosy knit dress

I love this Reiss off-shoulder knitted midi dress. It’s perfect for the autumnal weather and I love its versatility. Now I know this is a wishlist post, but I managed to get my hands on the dress a few days ago! I got the dress in stone in a size small. The dress has been selling fast and the size small is completely sold out on the Reiss website but it’s still available here… run, don’t walk!

See me rocking it on my feed here:

#2 – A pair of mid-heel pointy suede pumps

I’ve had my eye on these Everlane pumps for a while. While it’s hard for me to pass up anything navy, the chocolate brown pair are the ones I’m particularly keen to add to my collection. A gorgeous lush brown hue that’ll go perfectly with the lighter creamy neutrals in my wardrobe. Mmmm….

#3 – A cozy bone-coloured coat

I’ve got a pretty healthy coat collection but I’ve yet to add a lighter-coloured one to the mix. I’ve been coveting coats by The Curated for months. The Classic Coat has been hugely popular on social media and looks to be of amazing quality. I particularly love the transparency that goes behind the manufacturing and pricing of their coats. The Curated was created by Nicola Harlem who not only runs a successful sustainable fashion label but is a mother to three boys. I love all the BTS footage that she shares on her Instagram page.

I’ve got my eye on the Classic Coat in Bone and the Alpaca Coat in Off-White.

#4 – A pair of black booties

I’ve heard only great things about Everlane’s boots. Lush Italian leather, comfortable to wear and easy to style. I’m after a pair of these Boss Boots and the Western Boots. I think they’ll be perfect for Autumnal Casual Fridays.

#5 – A lush oversized scarf

As I type, I’ve got three of these scarves on hold at Acne Studios boutique in Sydney. I’m going to try on all three colours to decide which colour I like best.


In recent weeks, I’ve managed to check a few items off my wishlist including this oatmeal blazer and this trench coat.  I’ve stuck to my style goals for the year by adding lighter neutrals to my closet complementing my existing navy and darker hues.

I’d love to know what you’ve currently got on your Autumn workwear wishlist. Let me know if any the items I’ve listed are items that you currently own or have your eye on too.

As always, thanks again for stopping by.
