Earlier this week I was sorting through some photos on Picasa and came across this image of a walk we went on in Fordingbridge last November. As much as I’m loving the sunshine this week it did make me feel a little nostalgic for tramping through the woods in welly boots and wearing hats and gloves. If the weather gets cold next week you know who to blame!
We’ve been to a couple of open air cinema screenings recently and the temperature certainly drops at night so I must admit I’ve taken a secret glee in packing blankets, shearling lined hoodies and woolly hats. Now we’re in the ‘transition period’ and A/W items have started appearing in the shops I’ve started noting down my most wanted items for the many autumnal walks I’ll be taking – with Bodhi in tow and a roast dinner at a country pub at the end of course!
1. Barbour Cable Knit Jumper – £99.95
I’m loving everything by Barbour at the moment and I’m desperate for a Barbour waxed jacket. This cable knit jumper looks like it would be so cosy – to be worn next to a log fire with a glass of mulled wine.
2. Coopers for ASOS wax biker jacket – £160
This is the wax jacket of my dreams – I love the contrast corduroy lapel. Sadly it is a little out of my budget, but maybe by the time it gets cold enough to wear it I might have enough in my savings jar!
3. Joules Tweed Fieldcoat, £220
Another swoonworthy jacket, another gaspworthy price. Still, in 100% wool it is rather an investment jacket. And it has foxes on the poppers, so….
4. Upland Wellington Boots, Equestrian Clearance, £51.99
Another Autumn means another good pair of wellies and these neoprene lined boots with side zip look like they’d last for Autumns to come.
5. Herschel Survey Backpack, £55
I usually take a backpack with me on long dog walks so I can pack my SLR and all my other bits I cart around, I love the shape of these Herschel backpacks, inspired by vintage mountaineering equipment they look perfect for slinging on for a forest adventure (plus you wouldn’t lose me!)
6. ASOS Cable Knit Ears Beanie, £12
I love chunky, cream cable knit and this hat makes me smile, perfect for keeping nice and toasty!
Sorry to all you summer-bugs out there, I couldn’t resist a little Autumn wishlist, the weather forecast for this week is looking great so you don’t have to drag your welly boots out just yet!
