Autumn Basic - Checked Blazer/Coat

(pictures from Pinterest)

Loving this big belt cinching in the blazer.

Dressing down with a tee and jeans.

This oversized blazer is perfect with the camel sweater.

Don't pack those white jeans away yet!

Adore this with the all black ensemble.

Ooh!  Ruffles! Loving the elephant too!

Yep, you've guessed it! I now need some patent ankle boots in my life.

Love the whole outfit!

Love a hoodie with a coat/jacket..

Outfit perfection.

I am loving checked blazers and coats this Autumn.

They add the perfect addition of print to an otherwise plain outfit or provide the perfect pattern clash with a floral dress or skirt.  They also add a tailored finish to smarten up a jeans and sweater combo.  Whilst also adding a much needed extra layer on chillier days. What's not to love?

I am particularly loving those with more colour such as this one or this one . Pair with a cosy sweatshirt or camel sweater, jeans and some chunky boots . Practical and Chic.

Edit: Hush Homewear

I started buying from Hush about 14 years ago, and vividly remember wearing a pair of their floral brushed cotton pyjamas after having my second son who is now 13.  I have purchased one or two items per season over the years but recently have not been inspired to buy (apart from their wonderful leather jacket which was a birthday present from my husband last November).
This season however their range is much more tempting and inspiring and there are so many gorgeous pieces that I want to buy...NOW! 

Here are my faves:
