Three BASICS for Autumn-Winter


As you may or may not know, I'm moving to England soon (20 days to be exact) and that means I've been going crazy and organising plenty of things for this - and that includes clothes. 
Let's be honest - England is already pretty chilly by the end of August. Definitely nothing compared to our 35ºC. That means that by the time I move in, I'm going to need plenty of layers! (Even by October we enjoy 20ºC - so yes)
Thankfully for me, I've been getting GREAT DEALS on sales for the past month and I've bought pretty cute things - and also my parents have, because they do really love spoiling me and especially now since their little girl is moving out for half a year.
So I'm going to start showing you three pieces of clothing that I think should be in every girl's wardrobe. But hey, that's my opinion, and you may differ from that!

New Yorker: 4,95€ (it was on sale)

1. A black jumper. (Check that pattern!) This specific black jumper cost me 4,95€ - did I hear someone scream "BARGAAAAAAAAAAAIN"? - and I bought it one size bigger. I'm glad I did because it's not as loose as I expected it to be, which is good! Not all your tops should be loose in Autumn-Wiinter, although we all love cozy jumpers, don't we?
Black knitted jumpers that aren't too thick are awesome for layering with a denim shirt underneath or any other kind of blouse with a cute collar. Whether you go for flannel, cute Peter Pan collars or denim - you'd be winning! 


H&M: 19,95€

2. An oversized sweatshirt. The story behind this sweatshirt is quite funny. I saw it once in H&M and I fell for it. It's a very lightweight sweatshirt and quite oversized with such cute sleeves. I was deciding whether I'd buy it or not and one day I was watching Gabriella (velvetgh0st)'s Vlog and I saw she was wearing it. My father noticed the girl and said "that girl reminds me of you - also, that sweatshirt looks nice, you could use one of those in England." I told my father I was thinking about buying it or not... and turns out that exactly afternoon I went out with my parents and they bought it for me as a present.
ANYWAY - an oversized sweatshirt like this is great for layering too (and don't deny me this is such a kick-ass sweatshirtIt's not thick so maybe it's not TOO warm, it doesn't have fleece inside, but it's comfortable and fantastic. I also think it looks great on me (sorry not sorry). If you're looking to buy this one, I'd advice you to go for your exact size. I usually buy M, L if I want it loose, but I went for XL but I wasn't sure it'd be THAT oversized. Well... turns out it was. It looks incredibly big on me, but I still love it so I'm keeping it!

C&A: 12,90€

3. A thick, Autmn coloured jumper. I've been after a mustard jumper for ages. I think they look awesome in Autumn-Winter. But whether you go for mustard, dark red or brown, I think that any Autumn coloured jumper should be considered a staple in your wardrobe. Finding cheap yet great quality thick jumpers in Spain is hard. Honestly I can't be bothered to pay almost 30€ for one (*cough* ZARA *cough*) and I'm pretty surprised not too many people go to C&A. You can usually have great products for a great price. I mean, 12,90€ for a jumper like this is a bargain. I may come back for another one!
In addition, wouldn't this look cute with a shirt underneath?

What are your top 3 must wear in Autumn-Winter?

  3. I'm dying for fall. I'd love to spend a weekend or something in the UK during this time of year. I hate summer/ love the cold and rain. It sounds ideal. I am counting the days till fall and can wear all of the sweaters like this. I have so many, they're my fave.

    1. If you like them oversized don't worry about the size, really. I think an M would've fit me just fine but I'm glad I got the XL, so it's like SUPER oversized. And comfy! I hope you find your size soon x

  5. I love all of these jumpers! I always love wearing a sweater with a collar peeking out in the winter, it makes such a simple and cute outfit :) I cannot wait for autumn/winter clothing. You're so lucky to be moving to England!
