Pumpkin Orange Weekly Wishlist

It’s Hallowe’en next week and these days that seems to mean pumpkin orange. In Scotland we used to carve turnip, or tumshie, lanterns, and decorate them.

But this one Americanism I don’t mind (though I still want guisers at my door, not Trick or Treaters, okay?!), as it is FAR easier to carve a pumpkin than a turnip! And so pumpkin orange is now as Hallowe’en as witches and black cats.

And that’s good, because pumpkin orange is actually a great colour to wear in autumn. it’s cosy, bright, bold and makes me feel warm. So, this week’s weekly wishlist is made up of all the pumpkin orange things I love this week -and something Hallowe’en of course!

Let’s start with a big boyfriend coat, this one from Red Herring @ Debenhams (£65) is a great shade or orange. I’m not sure I would be getting far in the orange and black Privilege platform sandals @ Schuh (£75). Wow. These are high. And awkward looking, don’t you think? But I love them for their sheer bonkers-ness.

This bright orange leather tote from GAP is reduced from £109.95 to £69.99 which is a great deal. A bright bold bag will waken up any outfit.

Choose a fine knit (£14.99) at H&M, or at the same shop, go for a fluffier, turtle-neck (£29.99). I couldn’t resist the foxy little H! by Henry Holland hat from Debenhams (£16), childish and fun! JOY’s neat orange dress (£55) will look great with thick black tights, chunky boots and an oversize cardigan.

French Connection’s pleated burnt orange top (£35?) is flattering over your tummy area, and will look fab with dark jeans. Finally, slick on some bold orange New Look nail polish (£2.99), and if you’re very good attempt some nail art on top – contrasting black pumpkin designs perhaps? Oh yeah, and BHS has Hallowe’en pumpkin deely boppers for £4. What’s not to love?!
