Weekly Wardrobe – embracing autumn colours

I do feel summer colours particularly suit me and I’m reluctant to let them go. In the spirit of #IwillwearwhatIlike, I will probably continue to wear pale blue and blush pink regardless of the season, but now we’re into October, I thought I would stop denying summer is over and pick something a little more autumnal. This is just a casual outfit I wore at the weekend for no particular occasion. We had crappy weather on Saturday, but wasn’t Sunday beautiful? These autumn style photos were taken in a nearby village just as it was getting cooler….




It is interesting doing this weekly wardrobe thingy, because it really makes me notice what I’d like more or less of in my season transition wardrobe. I spent a while looking for a more interesting red top than this plain long sleeved jersey one, but I didn’t have anything. I need more autumn fashion red tops, definitely! I also discovered while posing, that it has several small holes! I think I bought it a few years ago from Tesco and has been well worn.



The bottle green skirt is from River Island. It’s another item that gets worn quite a lot during this season and I’ve had it for about ten years now. I like the wooden buttons covering the waist tie as a little added detail. This is my favourite shape of skirt too and I think is quite flattering on me – the floaty flared style suits curvy girls.



I bought the red stone necklace from a stall at Glastonbury Festival about twelve years ago for about £3! (I have another the same but in blue.) So this item of jewellery gets worn a lot in autumn, particularly with my plain black tops to liven them up a bit.


I bought the shoes from ebay and are by Lands End. It’s always a risky business buying shoes online without being able to try them on first, but this was a gamble that paid off as I love these, and the quirky crossover toggle fastening.


My velvet patchwork bag was featured last week and is also in my September Favourites You Tube video. It is quite likely you’ll see it a fair few times yet! I’ve worn it throughout several years, but the colours are particularly perfect for autumn.

Late January Sales shopping – Next, New Look, Joe Browns, Joules & Weird Fish
February 6, 2017
I don’t like crowds; particularly in the shops when the January sales start. However, I absolutely LOVE a bargain! So, if I have the funds, I would sometimes go shopping the first week the kids had gone back to school, so at least I wouldn’t be fighting with them along the sales rails! Lately though, I haven’t specifically gone out of my way to go shopping in the sales, but I passed by New Look the other day and bought a couple of things. Then I was seduced by the Joe Browns catalogue that appeared on my doorstep, so I bought a couple of things from there online. Then, I was at Clark’s Village in Street to look for boots for Chris, when I ended up buying a few things there. Ooops!….

A boho dress for a boho lifestyle

I am often at my happiest when Chris, (and in the past when they were smaller, the kids as well) and I go off on a road-trip in the camper. We’ve had a few vans over the years, changing the size of them to suit our family, and now that Rain and Jude have had enough of the cramped sleeping conditions and the dog snoring in their ears, we downsized to a Type 25 VW camper van a couple of years ago for just the two of us. When I’m gathering the clothes to take with me on these trips, I tend to choose the more bohemian items from my wardrobe.  Apart from at Wilderness festival, can you think of a more fitting time to wear clothes like this dress? With its flowing fabric and button-up style, this maxi dress has a gorgeous print inspired by far-flung lands and evokes a feeling of summer travels….

We’ve had a real mix of weather lately haven’t we?! I’m actually across the pond in Connecticut right now, but I think it’s fairly similar to the UK – lovely and sunny one day, and then cold and grey the next. This outfit would have been perfect the day before we took the photos! However it was ten degrees cooler when the weekend rolled around and I have to be honest, my bare legs were a little chilly! Anyway, this is a great way to layer for changeable weather, but maybe pack a pair of skin-coloured tights too!…
