Autumn knitwear and Woodland walks
Autumn is here! *Skips through the leaves*. Cue pictures of cosy knitwear, open fires and cups of tea (although the reality is dark evenings, even darker mornings and hello rain). I have a love-hate relationship with most of the seasons – not that I’m hard to please or anything! I hate being cold, but I love snuggly jumpers and lots of layers. I hate being too hot, but I love sunshine and holidays. I’m a walking contradiction, really. That said, I am quite enjoying autumn at the moment if you ignore the fact that it’s dark at 7pm (cry face).
I’ve been rummaging in the depths of my wardrobe to find last year’s knitwear and was quite impressed with the amount I’ve found – all in good condition too. I’m a great believer in hanging on to basics like knitwear as they rarely go ‘out of fashion’ so to speak. Of course, monochrome seems to be my greatest obsession, like this grey chunky knit jumper. Although I do like adding some contrast and a pop of colour with a cosy scarf like this tartan beauty (tartan just never gets old, does it?)
My New Balances will hopefully last me another autumn, although I will probably be wearing them until they physically fall apart. It’s true shoe love. I’ve really started loving distressed jeans lately – bit late on the bandwagon with that one. I love how they add a casual edge but are so easy to dress up with cute camis and floaty tops should you want to. They’re also rather wonderful for Slouchy Sunday’s (my favourite day) and the good old cliched woodland walks.
What are you loving most about autumn?
