I'm Cheating on Summer...

I know we're only half way through August and I should still be hungry for blue sky's and hot days, but as I write this even 24°C sunshine can't stop me from looking forward to Autumn, just look at how guilty I look (yeah, not at all). Simply put Autumn is my favourite season, why you may ask, well of course it's because of the fashion !

Autumn is the season of the coat, the boot and the many many layers. Also the palette changes, personally I am always drawn to black, but in autumn I enjoy adding rich hues of rust, forest greens and burgundy into the mix.

So this post is all about the items I am really craving for the season ahead, so I am not fully cheating right now, perhaps this post should have been called flirting with Autumn...


ASOS Kimono Shape Cardigan:

Quite honesty I am holding out for this in black, but for now I can enjoy the shape and entertain the thought that a grey cardigan could change my life.

Its huge, its has drapes for days and it will go with everything...

Slouchy, soft and completely layer-able. H&M are always a safe bet for thin knitwear such as this.

I love a cuban heel on a boot, I love an almond toe. I have a very similar pair in black and have worn them over and over. This rich hue of brown would be a nice option away from my beloved black. On the pricey side, but Jeffery West boots are really well made and wear well.

When it comes to everyday dressing I like a nice easy piece that I can chuck on if I need to run errands but with the right accessories could do a a dinner too.


So just a few of the things that I am coveting for the coming season, perhaps I am looking ahead too soon, but these things might not be around when the weather does turn.

Good day darlings.
