Summer to Autumn

Whilst I was in Mexico I could see lots of tweets from friends saying they felt particularly autumnal; that the seasons had seemingly changed overnight and brown leaves carpeted the floor, with a nip of a chill in the air.  I expected to be coming home to light the fire, burrow under a blanket and light all my Pumpkin Spice Latte candles (of course, what else does a blogger do when Autumn graces your corner of the world?) Instead we arrived back on Wednesday afternoon to glorious sunshine, and whilst I’ve definitely packed away my shorts for now (although apparently there’s going to be a heatwave next week…), I still feel like we’re not quite at the stage where I need to be throwing on my big winter coat.

This year, the answer to all of my transitional dressing woes is this comfy Fat Face cardigan, which I also wore on the plane journey home as it’s so comfy and easy to throw on over pretty much any outfit.  Of course breton stripes are a staple part of my wardrobe, and these espadrilles are perfect for wearing on sunnier days to walk the dog or for stomping around town (my only complaint is that they don’t have the Chanel C woven into them as I think they look a bit similar to the Chanel espadrilles; I guess that’s what you get for shopping at Matalan rather than Chanel!

As you probably know, I’m usually a die-hard devotee of my jeans at the weekend (so say Guru Gossip – ha!) but these capri chinos are now a firm part of both my weekend wardrobe and my work wardrobe (I love wearing chinos to work with a crisp white shirt and some pointy heels). PS – They’re only £15 in the sale, what’s not to like!

It’s lovely and sunny today so I’ll be throwing on my cardigan and taking Bodhi for a long walk in the forest.  Hope you’re all having lovely Sundays whatever you’re doing!
