Transitioning to autumn with PLT. A lookbook for the change of season featuring midi skirts, sweatshirts, denim dresses and ankle boots

Can you BELIEVE that the summer is pretty much over? We're almost in September and soon the kids will be going back to school - where did June, July, and August go?! Now, as much as I love the summer, I also absolutely adore the last few months of the year. Gimme alllll the cosy clothes, candles, warm tones and, of course, CHRISTMAS! So, as sad as I am to be saying goodbye to wearing shorts and crop tops, hanging out at the beach and having BBQs, I'm also lowkey here for it! So, with that in mind, let's get into this change of season lookbook, shall we?

Transitioning to autumn with PLT. A lookbook for the change of season featuring midi skirts, sweatshirts, denim dresses and ankle boots

After not jumping on the trend for many a year, look who has finally joined the midi club!! I'm a fairly lanky human (read: I'm 5'8) and always just sort of assumed that midi skirts wouldn't suit me... Well, inspired by my gal Abi, I gave one a go and do you know what, I love it! It's so not 'me' or my usual style but I'm such a fan already! I paired this leopard print one with the darling sweatshirt, and I think it's a bit of a look. For reference, I have the skirt in a size 8 and the sweatshirt in a size small and they both fit perfectly! Midi skirts are definitely going to be my go-to clothing item over the next month or so. They're so easy to style, are light and floaty so not too hot, but there's also a fair bit of fabric to them to keep you warm. I love.

One of my favourite things about the change of season is being able to wear all of my boots again! I'm not that much of a sandal gal, so if I'm not at the beach in flip flops, you'll find me in trainers pretty much all summer long. So, when autumn starts to roll around and I can dig all of my boots out of the cupboard again, I'm pretty chuffed. September often ends up being fairly warm, so pairing skirts with ankle boots is the perfect way of transitioning from full-on summer attire to 'hello it's autumn now' attire. I'm not one for wearing fancy blouses or intricately beaded tops so this black tee is far more up my street. Anyway, this neutral coloured skirt is, in my opinion, the perfect transitional piece. It's light enough to be wearing in the warmer weather but isn't full-on summer, do you know what I mean? Dressed for summer but vibing autumn, that's my trend for September - you heard it here first!

There's a bit of a theme to this lookbook isn't there? Neutrals, skirts and dresses... How cute is this black denim dress though? Whilst I love how it looks with bare legs and trainers, as we head into winter and beyond I think it'll look even better with chunky tights, boots and a fluffy fur jacket. Are you seeing the same vision I am? And no, PLT haven't started selling puppies, Murphy just wanted in on the photo action and I just couldn't say no... Look at that little face!
