Transitional Dressing

This time of year is a tough one for deciding just what wear for the day ahead, dressing appropriately for whatever weather turns up as the day progresses.  Whilst summer is definitely over, we still see the odd day of sunshine, then it’s back to windy, chilly days, brrr.                    I’m not quite ready to give up bearing my legs, however on cooler days  it feels like the sensible thing to give in and pull on a pair of  tights – I will hold out as long as I can bear it.

   I think transitional dressing as the seasons change can be fun, it’s the time of year when dresses or skirts can be worn with or without tights,  but you can keep cosy by donning a jumper or long sleeved blouse.   It’s the ideal season for grabbing a leather jacket, cos it’s not truly cold enough for our big winter coats.
On the plus side,  this season brings with it a variety of lovely fabrics, of which corduroy is one of my favourites.  This burgundy dress is a perfect example of a transitional wardrobe staple.   (I’ve spied an emerald green version,  who knows, perhaps I might just snap it up!)
I’m looking forward to crisp autumn leaves falling, wearing chunky knits and snuggling on the sofa drinking warming hot chocolate.  I am fickle, whilst I say this today,  I guess by next month I’ll be wishing for springtime to hurry along!
What are you looking forward to in the coming autumn months?

    I’ve already cracked open the hot-chocolate Amy and I love an excuse to wear burgundy.

    Wow, you’re brave to bare your legs! It has to be about 30 degrees for me to take my black opaques off! I love Autumn and everything that goes with it: jewelled tones, chunky scarves, ankle boots. You look great in this outfit and you should definitely purchase the emerald green version of this frock! x
