Is Autumn all about layers?

Post-summer wardrobe is always described as layering your pieces. I really really want to be able to achieve this look but always end up in a sweat about it....literally! As soon as I am out for five minutes, I break out in such a sweat that the jacket, scarf, jumper, and top are screaming to come off! 

I am not unfit or anything, but as soon as I'm out and about, I end up carrying half my wardrobe in my hands. So the key to my A/W wardrobe this year are pieces that are functional but also stylish.

Dublin is blessed with mostly downpours and we get about one/two months of moderately cold weather. It's not the Antarctic or anything, just always wet! The following are on my A/W list of must-haves; I tend to keep a palette of mostly dark colours with mixed fabric textures and a pop of colour in an accessory to funk it up. 

I tend to rock a fur/tweed combo, various layers and chunky boots (and obviously the obligatory bit of leopard). What are you most excited about rocking this A/W?
