Here at the Donegal Shop HQ, we’re embracing autumn with open arms.

We’re dreaming of comfy knit jumpers and cosy hats and scarves, lighting the fire and snuggling up in front of the TV with ALL of the blankets.

So with all that in mind we thought we’d put together a blog post featuring our top three autumn essentials for you to peruse.

1) The Chunky Knit Sweater.

It’ll come as a surprise to no one how absolutely bonkers we are about our knits.

These guys are a seasonal all-rounder. From cosying up on the couch, to keeping you warm on a dash to the shops, or styled over a pair of leather trousers with a super-cool hat, the chunky knit will be your  bestie this autumn winter.

Our favourite is this beautiful lilac option from Irelands Eye Knitwear.


2) The Cosy Hat and Scarf

If last winter and storm Emma taught us absolutely anything it’s that everyone needs the perfect hat and scarf duo in their arsenal.

From beanie hats and snoods, to oversized knit scarves and wool caps, whatever your choice may be, these guys will be an autumnal purchase you won’t regret.

Our pick has to be this stunning raspberry beanie from Bog Bean Beanies.


3)The Massive Blanket

Sure where would we be if we didn’t mention the absolute necessity for a cosy night by the fire? We love a good blanket! Be it fleecy, tweed, linen or cotton, we’d have them all if we could.

These merino wool throws made right here in Westport are our pick of the season for sure.
