MAKING SUMMER DRESSES WORK FOR AUTUMN
I find this time of year a bit tricky for styling; you see, I still long to wear my cute dresses – but its bloody freezing outside!  My current solution is layering, as this enables me to wear my much loved midi dresses, whilst creating a nifty option that is chilly weather appropriate.  At this time of year I just love pulling on a huge cosy jumper over a fave frock.
This gorgeous chenille pullover is my latest obsession. Why?   It’s velvety to touch and oh so cosy!  Don’t you love the colour? It’s versatile and  looks good teamed up with a dress or worn casual with jeans and retro trainers.
For its first blog outing, I paired it with this much loved ASOS midi dress.  My cloud satchel seemed to accessorise the look perfectly.  I rather enjoyed picking out the different hues in the dress pattern of pink and rose.  In fact the floral print became star of the show, when emphasised by the addition of bag and pullover.   Anyway, I am so smitten with this bag, I guess any excuse to use it will do, quite frankly!
As you can see, even though the temperatures are dropping faster than the leaves from the trees, I am still wearing my old faithful leather jacket.  In truth,  I will have to wear warmer winter coats very soon and put it away until spring, which makes me kind of sad.   So,  just for now, donning ankle boots and a beret ensures this outfit is transitional, bridging late autumn through to the first frosty days of winter.

I meant to ask, how are ya’ll finding my new blog design? I have to say that whilst I was a bit nervous about making the changes,  I’m really pleased with my efforts.   It was in need of an update and I thinks it’s now quite beautiful.

Let me know your views, I’m curious to hear from you.

    Love the slouchy sweater over the floral dress…and the soft rosy tone has a vintage vibe that goes so nicely with the grandma print on the dress. Well done!
