'Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower'
The season of mist and mellow fruitfulness has been a joy. When you are blessed with crisp blue skies and sunlight that makes the mountain glow red in the mornings, you remember the wonder of Autumn and how no other time of year is the world set alight with this blaze of colour. I take all the joy I can in it before the darker and colder days settle in.
I am still rushed off my feet with work so I haven’t taken as many walks or time curled up by the fire with a good book but I have cooked *some* warming meals, pulled out all my knitwear and purchased a new Winter coat. I adore the style of it and the subtle plaid pattern but I am not sure I can pull off the unstructured, double breasted styles this season as well as everyone else I have seen. I love them on the hanger but they are often in danger of drowning me and giving me broad, man shoulders! I also think they look much better with high heels to balance them out which is not always the most practical.
Dress - Urban Outfitters Top - Uniqlo Heatech Boots - Vintage Coat - Zara Bag - Vero Moda
This dress has been a firm favourite since I bought it in Urban Outfitters just over a month ago and it’s perfect with my vintage boots. I love the wee shape and style of these boots and I also love that my Great Aunt Bridie gave them to me as they had been sitting in great condition in her wardrobe for years! It makes them more sentimental and I know that she loves seeing them get used too.
