Sunday Best: Leather and Knit

Oatmeal and Leather

Car Coat - Topshop, Sweater - H&M, Umbrella - Orla Kiely, Leather Skirt - River Island,
Nail Varnish - Models Own in Moody Grey, Patent Satchel - Cambridge Satchel Co. at Asos.

Little by little autumn is creeping in ready to banish summer for another year. I love living in a country with such distinct seasons (well, maybe not in the case of summer) and watching them change around me
but the next few months are my favourite time of year. Blustery days filled with romantic expectations for the coming season without the dreary reality of the long harsh winter. Hopefully there will be a few more warm days before summer bids us adieu but this weekend has been distinctly chilly. Not that I am complaining, it has given my an opportunity to wear some of the autumnal pieces the I've been gathering.

Quite uncharacteristically I've been buying basic, especially these huge jumpers from H&M. The shape is so simple that they are easily thrown on over frock which is pretty handy for surviving the fickle temperatures of late summer in Scotland. I won't lie, they are pretty much a blanket with sleeves (see funny arms shot) and oh-so-cosy for it.

I'm not sure how the leather skirt came about but all of a sudden I needed one, my life/wardrobe just wouldn't be complete without it. Not exactly in keeping with the rest of my attire but it has settled in reasonably well. I think I'll fashion a Louis Vuitton style leather collar to wear it with next and a big grey jumper for a not-actually-going-back-to-school outfit.

  33. If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.
