Take yesterday's outfit. At first it can look innocent enough, with the black and grey mix, but then there is the pop of red in my Tohu Bohu shawl and my suede platform sandals to add some spice and take it out of plain grey territory.
As you know I adore the transition into Autumn, and I'm so excited that the days are turning crisper. Note: I know that makes me quite a unique (crazy) person, as most people tend to hang on to warm weather like a free pair of Manolos, but I can't help it, sorry. The new season comes with new clothes, new entertaining opportunities, back to school days with Little Monsieur etc etc.
For transitional weather I quite like wearing my skirts with bare legs, it's still warm enough for it. I have been wearing my pleated faux leather skirt quite often these last two weeks, it's warm without being stuffy and isn't scratchy like a tweed skirt would feel on tights-less pins. It also allows for endless mixes. The other day I paired it with a silk blouse, a classic Mac and my favourite Hermès Nuit sandals, but yesterday it felt a bit cold so I brought out a finer knit jumper and my new peplum jacket for warmth and a patchwork of textures.
By the way, how do you feel about sandals in colder weather? Yes or no way? I for one love to wear sandals or peep toe shoes throughout the year. It means my tootsies sometimes get a bit cold but it is far too sad to keep sandals for warm days only, especially if you live in Freeze-land (sorry, I mean London) like me...
