Accessories Lyst


I don't know about you, but I will certainly be ready when autumn arrives. Without having any other reason aside from my general aversion to humidity, my enthusiasm for fall's arrival typically starts with the thought of donning leather layers. When the climate is hot and humid let's face it, it doesn't make sense to wear infinite layers for no good reason.

Nowadays, I typically choose comfort first (especially the older that I become). Don't get me wrong, there is a balance. Of course, fashion and function always fall in line right after each other, however when it's sensationally hot or unbearably cold I'd rather be comfortable first. Do you continuously choose style first before function and comfort?

Whichever way your stylish little hearts may go, I have something for everyone — from the daring fashionista to the casual traveller. I've partnered with Lyst again to share a pre-autumn wish list, and some of my favourites from their site. I used the site to curate a wish list of accessories (as seen in these style boards) for multiple occasions: off duty styles, at the office, weekend casual, and versatile pieces. These styles can easily transition for day and night looks without having to renounce your smart garb.

Autumn fashion has already ushered in my social timelines at flashing speeds, and all I can think of is how much I am in need of a new pair of boots. I don't typically purchase a grand fashion supply every season, instead I have been doing a big selective purchase twice a year for certain shoe styles, namely boots.

Over the weekend as I donated some boots, relinquishing a couple styles (due to unforgiving soles), I was instantly motivated by a number of styles found on Lyst. Whatever pieces I end up buying, they'll surely have to live up to the years of wear and quality of the older styles that I've had to let go. After the purging session ended I only kept a handful of styles that I absolutely loved (not including the vintage boot collection, obviously).
