It is with regret but I am giving up on summer, with the wet and grey days outnumbering the warm and the opportunities to wear sandals dwindling I’ve crossed over to the dark side that is autumn dressing.
It doesn’t help that while project kitchen is underway the desire to shop for clothes when I should be shopping for tiles and floors (equally as exciting but not quite as wearable) is great. The high street is awash with new season and it all looks amazing and I’m a big fan of autumn dressing. Boots, jumpers, scarves and coats (oh gosh coats!) are my first love and I must confess I am far more comfortable layering for the cold than peeling off in the heat. While it may feel a bit premature it is definitely worth snapping up items for the new season when you see them – you’ll be glad you did when they sell out. With that in mind I thought I would share the virtual lust list I am currently creating.
It’s becoming quite clear that my over-riding obsession is red. However, whereas I’ve been wearing flashes and hints of the hue up until now I’m ready to go full throttle with a dress and this one from Lindex has been playing on my mind since I saw it at the A/W press event (I am just missing the perfect occasion to wear it to to justify it’s purchase). I am also so thrilled that pyjama style suits outside of the bedroom are acceptable – this set from H&M not only makes me happy it really upsets my husband which ultimately increases it’s appeal…
