Wish List Item and Baukjen's New Collection

I have reluctantly started packing away some of my summer clothes now and while I'm still enjoying the lovely sunshine, it definitely feels like autumn is round the corner. My wish list for the season is now a work in progress (see post here) and one of the items on it is this modern classic - the animal print shirt from Baukjen:

Felsted Print Shirt £109

If I could have one shirt to update my wardrobe it would be this one. The pattern is perfect to add interest under a sweater for a casual look with boyfriend jeans and sneakers, but it could just as easily be tucked into tailored trousers or a pencil skirt for a smarter look.

I think this season's collection from Baukjen is my favourite so far. It's very wearable, with so many items that can be mixed and matched for work or for the weekend. Here are some of my favourites:

Rye Textured Top £85

This would be as high on my wish list as the shirt - a textured knit in black and grey, it would go with so many things in my wardrobe and would be so easy to dress up or down.

Rye Car Coat £179

The same textured knit in a coat - the perfect layer for autumn and another item that would work off duty with sneakers or pumps, but would look smart over tailored trousers and heels for the office.

Cambourne Wrap Coat £299

I featured a classic camel coat on my wish list for this season. I am not buying a new winter coat this year, but this would be the shape and style I would want.

Atlow Jumper £145

Knitwear is my biggest weakness, I don't need any more jumpers, but this classic grey knit is the perfect shape for layering over shirts and tees with jeans or leather leggings.

Atlow Cardigan £175

This long cardi is my favourite of all the knitwear. I love long cardigans, so cosy and easy to throw on, but this one stands out because of the vibrant colour - a fabulous wardobe update.

Liv Leather Leggings £339

A huge investment, but I would love to update my faux leather trousers with these!

Nateby Clutch £149

I love this sleek envelope clutch in ponyskin dalmation spot - so sleek and  a timeless classic.

Elia B Ponyskin Ballet Pump £99

I would also love a pair of leopard print ballet pumps to wear with skinny jeans - they look so chic with a classic outfit.

Finishing as always with what I've been wearing! This jumpsuit was first worn for a hen night five years ago, it was the first night I'd been away from my little boy, who was six months old at the time! Anyway, it was from Topshop, and I'm wearing it with Dune sandals from last year and a leopard print clutch from Boden this season.

What is your favourite piece from Baukjen's autumn/winter collection?
