Farewell Summer....

Summer, summer wherefore art thou? I guess it has gone then? Sorry to keep posting back to school/autumn posts but I can’t escape the feeling!!! I do love autumn though; I think it’s my favourite time of year. And not just because my birthday is in September!!! I love everything about autumn. I love the colours of autumn, I love the bonfires/Halloweens, I love being able to eat sausage and mash without sweating! And I love the fact that there’s no better excuse for new clothes than dark nights and colder weather. I’m already on the hunt new boots (anyone know where I can get some?), and I recovered my woolly, ribbed tights from storage last week! I do think I have found my dream coat but I don’t have £295 and if I could try and save it but I might have suffered frostbite by then, but just look at the little beauty.

In this funny in-between season time I am lusting after light knits in pretty colours like this lovely bit of embellished knitwear which would also be perfect for spring and matches the colour of the hair I fell in love with in my last post. I can never resist a little bit of sparkle either. Swoon.

True Blue.... I love you.
Seriously considering a pink rethink. Especially after seeing this over at Scalpture.

I love it all. The colour. The cut. The roots.
Plus blue is more fitting for autumn/winter no?

Beauty School Dropout...

Been a while eh? I'm trying not to slip into my old habit of a few posts a month but I am a busy bee. Not really I'm just lazy.
Today has been a day of beauty or non beauty depending on how you look at it.

Jump Around.....

I said I'd post my first Etsy purchases, so after the headband comes the harness. Love it.

Excuse the picture I was very drunk at a lovely wedding, but it does show off the fabulousness of the chain rather well I think.

Schools out for summer.....

I think I'm beginning to get that "back to school" feeling. I don't think working in a childrenswear shop helps as we are really stocking up on uniforms! And I don’t think I am the only one. My fella just messaged me and said the radio is playing songs that remind him of his school days. It’s in the air!!!

All I want to do is buy new things. Pencils, pencil cases etc. I think I might treat myself to a few more Etsy purchases later in the month in order to satisfy this particular craving.

But as much as I love stationary, I love clothes more.

 I think this floral dress would be a perfect end of summer buy. Wear now with bare legs (ha this is England so maybe not) and sandals until the chilly weather and dark nights roll in, then don a pair of opaque’s and brogues. Add my gorgeous, trusty satchel from the Cambridge Satchel Ccompany and I think I have the perfect first day of school (uni) outfit. Oh and check out this post at Super Duper for some super sock suggestions and further proof that the back to school bug is spreading. Now where’s my conkers!??!
