hello Autumn


So i feel summer has finally disappeared bringing with it the rain and crazy autumnal weather. So I thought its about time i re-introduce my love for wooly jumpers and all things autumnal. I have packed up my summery dresses and skirts ready for the cold weather to descend, all sounds rather depressing doesn't it. Well if i am honest I don't really mind the cold weather, I really enjoy this time of year I always find it my most creative/productive time, locked away in my warm studio creating in the run up to christmas my favourite time of year. 
So the summer clothes have been packed away and replaced by my thick woolies, boots and jeans. I wish i could keep the summer clothes dotted about my room, but alas i have a tiny bedroom and alot of clothes so this is my only option. 
You can see in the photos my new riding/chelsea boots that i picked up from the local carboot for £1, the cheapest pair of shoes i think i have ever bought, they go amazingly well with everything I have worn so far, I love finding little gems. The jacket is vintage and i picked it up from a local charity shop for £4 its beautiful and perfect for autumn.
I am ready to reboot my pattern jumper collection ready for the winter, i need to find the most tackiest amazing patterned jumper...this is on my to-find list this Autumn. Have you got any items of clothing on your to-find list for Autumn?

  13. I'm with you on all of this! So excited to bring out all the woolly jumpers and thick tights and fur-lined boots. This is my favorite time of year. I, too, get more productive and creative in the winter. And I can't believe you found those boots for £1 and the jacket for so cheap as well. Magical! xx

  14. Loved the photos of warm/cold suitcase hehe ^^
    Although Autumn is my favourite season of the year, this past Winter has been so harsh that I was anxiously expecting Spring. It's now here but started out with a huge tropical storm, rain and wind and the temperature hasn't yet raised enough to finally drop my long and heavy montgomery for a lighter cardigan or sweater, just have to keep waiting for it I guess : /

  18. I'm about to do this also - I'm trying to narrow down my clothes and make a capsule wardrobe for winter, as I don't want to have to move ridiculous amounts of stuff! Easier said than done though.. Love that coat so much xxx
