Hey Y'All.

Autumn is here! I can say this with certainty, because this morning I selected my biggest and snuggliest jumper from my warfloordrobe, I feel totally justified once more in wearing a giant knitted hat, and because I find myself favouring plummy coloured lipstick at the moment. Please note how much progress towards becoming a Real Girl has been made - I've actually started wearing lipstick. Well, sometimes, anyway. 

Whenever I take pictures for the blog, most of them come out looking something like this for some reason. I think it's what my face actually looks like most of the time. Anyway, I thought it was high time I shared one with you.

I have massive love for Autumn and Winter dressing to be honest. Although I think that there's a lot more fun to be had experimenting with looks in the Summer, I constantly find myself panicking that I'm showing too much skin off. I'm definitely more one of the "big jumper please, and actually, pass me another slice of apple pie, I need the extra weight to keep me warm" gang than I am the "I look bitchin' in a crop top and disco shorts because  I have self discipline" type. It's sad but it's true. 

Anyway, look at me, going off topic. Here's what I wore today...

Hat - Oxfam; Necklace - Links of London; Handbag - Vida Vida; Jumper - Liberty (vintage); Skirt - American Apparel; Boots - Topshop.
I will basically be wearing this, or some variation of this, for the next few months. Except soon I'll have to pop a coat on over the top, and the tights will become wooly. Goodness me, I love lazy fashion.

Right, that's all for today, folks. I've suddenly realised that Winter is coming (cheeky Game of Thrones reference, because everyone loves a girl geek), and I need to make some Apple Streusel cake and locate my missing glove. I know I've got a bit of time, but I like to be prepared.

Are you a Summer or Winter girl, dress-wise?


P.S. While you're here, why not enter my Pebble London giveaway?


  1. I have JUST posted about this subject haha. I am such an Autumn girl! Forget shorts and vests, give me knitwear and boots any day!
    Very cute hat =)

  2. I have spent the last few weeks saying "Winter is coming" in my best Sean Bean voice :) Lovely the snuggly jumper, I can't wait to get wearing mine either! xx

  3. What lipstick colour is that? The grape one? I'm loving it. Is it quite moisturising?? xx

  4. I love that jumper, looks so nice and snug. Adorable photos too, pretty lady!
    I loooove the summer, the hotter the better, but I prefer winter clothes. Most awkward but I suppose at least I have something to look forward to each season.

    Also, HELL YEAH to the comment above. WINTER IS COMING!
