8 perfect buys to take you from summer to autumn

The weather is a bit weird recently innit? Like one minute the sun is shining and you're skipping out of the house with bare legs and then the next thing you know the heavens have opened and you are TOTALLY regretting wearing open toe shoes. Suddenly the shops are all full of roll necks and blanket scarves and ankle boots, but guys, guys, IT'S STILL AUGUST. We still have at least 3 more weeks of having some sort of vague hope that the sun might shine. So in an attempt to help you navigate this weird ol' transitional time, I have compiled a list of perfect buys that will look just as great now as they will in autumn.
