fall into fall

And so another week starts… hope you all had lovely weekends. Being home in the Shire made me realise that autumn is properly here. Living and working in London means that you rarely get to see Mother Nature in all her glory, so driving through the country lanes for the first time since summer, through tunnels of trees, took my breath away. It was reminiscent of fall in New England; I tried to take pictures using my iPhone whilst walking my mum’s dog, but the outcome was frankly pathetic. To give you an idea of the kind of colours and sunlight involved, take a look at the picture of the golden leaves below (as well as some other images that make me want to get all wrapped up):

With all this cosiness in mind, my outfits are starting to consist of tall boots over skinny jeans and chunky knits, with my new military-style coat thrown over the top. These are the types of looks I’ll be aiming to emulate this season:

And here are some pieces from the high street that would help me to achieve the autumnal snug-as-a-bug-but-still-chic look I’m after:

Toast fair isle gloves – £29 / 7. A/wear crew neck jumper – £13.50 / 8. Vivienne Westwood classic scarf – £60 / 9. Reiss Jilsy knit dress – £139}

    Those are some of my favorite looks. I’m definitely looking forward to wearing knits and boots this season. I’m having a yearning for real fall weather as well, which we hardly get here at the beach. Too bad. Teri
