Reasons I love Autumn

I can’t help it. I know it’s strictly speaking still sort of Summer but I love Autumn. I do.

Just some of the reasons:

  1. The leaves turning is spectacular – especially if you get out into the countryside. I think might city dwelling friends might think I’m mad but look!

    How super cute are these ones from Joules!

Are you excited for the arrival of Autumn? Or are you mourning the end of summer?

Wardrobe Update

I have been (as usual) looking forward to the start of Autumn. I love laying, I love knitwear and socks and the excuse to wear a scarf.

Also by early August I and my feet are bored of flip flops and sandals – give me boots, sneakers and slippers.

There are a few things I already have my eye on and a few things I already have that I am looking forward to wearing this Autumn.

I love a pair of sneakers, or two and added these tweedy ones to my collection recently. (New Look)

Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle for Autumn winter… I certainly do, and picked up these comfies from New Look for a bargain price.

This classic striped knit from H&M

I am currently hoping that Dotty P get these in in the Tall range…

And lastly for now, although I have no need for a new coat and I would definitely spill hot chocolate down it on it’s first outing I am in love with thiswinter-coat-hm.

What have you got your eye on at the moment?
