October Style

Back at the end of September, I told you all how much I love autumnal fashion. The snuggly jumpers, cute woolly hats and gorgeous wellies and boots we get to wear at this time of year are my absolute favourite wardrobe items - and luckily, the high street has treated us to some wonderful AW15 collections.

For me, the perfect outfit for October consists of a beautiful jumper, comfortable jeans, a warm hat, a practical but stylish coat, and a good pair of wellies for those long autumn walks! I've picked some of the best items in our shops right now, so you can create this look for yourself.

I also have a brilliant treat to share with you all today, so keep reading for more info...

The Coat

Next is my go-to shop when I'm looking for a new coat; they always have a fantastic range for outdoors, evening and workwear. Their Ripstop Jacket is utterly gorgeous; I could just see myself wearing this at the weekends as we amble through the countryside. It comes in Green, Ochre, Neutral and Navy (my fave) - but you want to snap one up quick as they're selling out fast!

The Jumper

I bought my first cable knit jumper from Crew Clothing Company last November, and I didn't really stop wearing it throughout the winter... I'm desperate to get my hands on this Raspberry version - and it's currently in the sale! Race you to the tills.

The Trousers

When you find out that one of your favourite shops sells a cracking pair of jeans, in a flattering style, at an affordable price, and in ten lovely colours, can you really say no? Boden's Mid Rise Skinny Jeans have always been popular, and it's not hard to see why. 

The Hat

If you're setting off one cool, crisp October morning, it's pretty much essential to keep your head warm with a cosy hat. Fortunately, Accessorize are always on hand to provide us with a delightful selection each year. I like their Chamonix Fairisle Pom Beanie - and it has a little bit of sparkle in it!

The Wellies

No autumn outfit is complete without a pair of wellies, and gone are the days when your old second-hand green ones will do. Nowadays, it's all about treating your feet to some stylish, eye-catching wellies, which will look splendid in those Instagram shots of you kicking piles of leaves. There really is only one place to look for wellies, and that, of course, is Joules. I'm slightly obsessed with spots, so their Navy Spot design is ideal for me.

Do you remember that treat I mentioned at the beginning? Well now's the time to spill the beans: if you love Joules wellies as much as I do, if you've got a creative brain and you love to doodle, and if you wouldn't say no to winning a luxury break worth £5000, then I have just the thing for you. Those wonderful folk at Joules have recently launched a Design a Welly competition! (I was so excited when I found out)

The winning welly design will actually be put into production, and will go on sale at joules.com, with all proceeds from the sale of these limited edition Wellingtons being donated to Joules' charity partners via Charitably Joules.

But that's not all; the winner will also be the extraordinarily lucky recipient of a prize which is quite simply incredible. It includes the following:

- 3 nights in a Golden Oak Treehouse cabin sleeping up to 10 people
- A voucher for a Forest Ranger activity for up to 10 people (activities include forest survival skills sessions, as well as twilight and night-time walks in the forest)
- Prosecco and chocolates in the cabin on arrival
- An in-cabin entertainment system
- An in-cabin Chef for one night
- 5 x 1 hour spa treatment vouchers
- 5 x Go Ape Passes
- A hamper filled with Joules items and other surprise treats

I know, right!

10 runners up will also receive a £250 Joules gift card each.

So what do you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this luxury Forest Holiday? Simply submit an awesome welly design here. Just so you know, you have some pretty tough competition from the likes of me...

^ Aren't they great?! I designed them with my horse-loving friends in mind.

If you do enter, be sure to share your design with me on Twitter and Instagram! I want to know who I'm competing against. 

I'm thrilled to be working with Joules on the launch of their Design a Welly competition; as such, this is a sponsored post.
