I adore this time of year. I reckon Autumn is on par with Spring as my favourite season. I’m so grateful to leave in a place where you really experience the seasons. I love the clear, crisp days and beautiful surroundings that are beginning to change colour. It’s also a great time to get dressed. Not too cold that you’re lost in a sea of stockings and scarves but still cool enough to get away with a few more layers and , as I managed to in these shots, a big coat thrown over your shoulders ever so nonchalantly.
Are you enjoying the cool change? What is your fave season to get dressed for?

Many people whinge about black and grey in winter – that it’s so predictable and boring. I don’t mind a bit of predictable – but I won’t accept boring. Keep things interesting with different textures and shades.
Layering is sometimes the only way to stay warm in Winter. Today was one of those days. Layering can be a little more tricky if you are busty and/or short (story of my life) – my tip is thin warm layers (I’ve got a wool knit hiding under that shirt) to avoid being too bulky. And be sure to highlight your waist.
You know the scenario – you’re looking through a store and the clothes on the hangers look, well, blah. Ordinary. Ugly even.
Please stop crying – you’ve just a got a simple case of hanger-discrimination. We’ve all had it. It looks unappealing on the hanger, you’re thinking why would I want that on this body?! But here is an easy cure: try it on.
Who would think this:
Could look like this?
Sure we don’t all have the luxury of Photoshop or a wind machine following us around all day but see how much better theses pieces (from David Lawrence) look like on an actual body?!! A few well placed accessories also help.
