Grid Print | Stripe Print

Anyone else desperately rummaging through their wardrobe each morning working out whether they can get away with that short skirt and flimsy blouse without catching a cold or, worse, being looked down on by a stranger at a bus stop for looking totally out of season?

If you’re like me, you will have cleverly left your autumn-approps wardrobe back at your parents house when you moved out. Suddenly that space-saving solution isn’t looking so smart. Brr, help! *Cue booking train ticket back home and collecting empty suitcases.* It’s less that two weeks until we begrudgingly force those clock hands backwards and descend into mental and meteorological gloom. TWO WEEKS! Please someone throw me a good reason why we do this along with that rope…

SO! Make the most your sandals (socks!) and stock up on colourful woollens while you can!

    This ensemble is so fun – I love the mix of prints and the bright bag. Also? I say hang onto skirts and summery blouses as long as possible!

    Seriously love the way you style things together! And the colour of that bag – think this fuchsia is fast becoming one of my “autumn colours” – just gorgeous! xx

    I LOVE the mix of prints here! You look fantastic, and I also love that you added colorful jewelry to the look. It makes it so fun and personal! I definitely dress badly for the season sometimes, but I mean… there are times when a piece of clothing just has to be worn, regardless of the weather-appropriateness of it all.
