Can I say “Baby, it’s cold outside” or is it too early for Christmas talk? London seems to have skipped straight from summer to winter and I am not happy about it. There’s something really lovely about the transition seasons; tentatively peeling layers off in spring and slowly layering more on in autumn. There are so many things I love about autumn – enjoying crisp, fresh mornings, cooking hearty, warming food, watching the leaves change from green to golden brown, the soft layers of knits. Last Saturday, I finally wore a huge pink knit I bought in January this year and spent the weekend snuggled up inside full of illness; it feels a little too early to be in full on winter mode just yet.
While I love the beauty of autumn, being stuck indoors sick had me yearning for summer. Long, carefree days of skipping out of the house with bare legs and without a jacket seem like a distant memory. Perhaps a little out of keeping with the current cold snap, I wanted to share a little throwback outfit post from summer. This summer, I was head over heels for pastels, everything from mint green to pink sorbet. This outfit was actually one of my summer go-tos, you know those outfits that are simple and just work so you’re confident to just throw it on…typically on a Monday morning before you’ve had your first hit of caffeine.
I guess you could call it a feel good outfit, full of cherished pieces which I’ve worn to death but still not grown tired of. It’s a clichéd mix of hi-low but I adore the H&M blouse I picked up on a whim as much as the Chloe bag I stalked for weeks before taking the plunge. My absolute favourite part of the outfit are the cute little pompom block heel shoes from ASOS, if memory serves they were only about £40 but I’d easily pay double for them. They’re a few seasons old but still garner admiring looks and compliments, as any good shoe should.
