Now my holiday is over and I am officially starting my dissertation reading for next year, as far as I'm concerned, AW 13 is just around the corner! I know, I know, our summer has only just really started with the recent good weather, but I personally prefer dressing for winter and have already started lusting over pieces for later in the year.

Checks were big news in the AW 13 shows, and I love how they are reminiscent of both the English countryside and American grunge. I'd probably wear this smock dress (1) with a shirt underneath, tights andddd, if I could afford them, the ridiculously cool Coltrane boots (3). In fact, the Coltrane's would go with everything on this wishlist AND in my wardrobe! I've wanted a pair for ages but it'll take some saving up ha.

This skirt (2) caught my eye at work last week, and it has been in my head ever since! I think it is really versatile, easily dressed up with a tailored shirt or more casual with a band tee and converse, and the slits on the side make it a little less granny and a lot more edgy.

The ASOS dress has been in my saved items ever since it came on the website! I think I will purchase this eventually, and am after a long sleeved mesh top to wear under it (suggestions welcome!).

And finally, midi rings are becoming more and more popular, and are an edgier alternative to normal rings. I could spend a fortune on Topshop jewellery, but the geometric shape of this one (5) makes it my favourite.

What have you got your eye on recently? Are you also a winter dresser??
