October is my favourite month of the whole year, I love everything it has to offer. Crisp clear days, just chilly enough for winter coat. Finding any excuse to bake with pumpkin and apples and of course, the main event All Hallows Eve. I still love it, even though I'm no fan of fancy dress (Thats right, I just graduated from studying costume) but this year I might just give it another chance.
This October I'll be spending most of the month on the sunny West Coast where Summer is still in residence so this weekend I've been making the most of my favourite season, baking multiple batches of pumpkin blondies, sewing winter clothes and cycling in the park before we leave for sunnier climes.
These were taken on our way back from a cycle in the park near our house. I'm so happy to finally have my lovely Pashley, she was definitely worth the wait. I have to take this opportunity to say that I have no time for anyone who says that a person can not cycle in heels, I do just fine in 5' platform clogs, thank you very much.
This outfit is extremely similar to the last one I posted but wool skirts and blouses are all I've been wearing of late. The light was fading fast while we were shooting and I didn't get a good picture of my skirt. The fabric nicest grey and navy plaid with a deep pink stripe running through it, I made it last week and haven't stopped wearing it since. I can't seem to stop making clothes at the moment. I didn't really realise just how vi sable my bra was through this blouse but hey, at least its a nice bra and coat is an old favourite that I added Grandad buttons to and added a furry collar.
I've been thinking of doing a tutorial on how to make a skirt like this and the one in my previous outfit post, would anyone be interested?
