End of summer, oh how I am not ready for you. Nuh-uh. Come back in 6 months and at least give me chance to develop some kind of tan, yeah? The thought of black opaque tights is giving me shudders already. I mean, along with autumn comes cosy and hot chocolate and fallen leaves
and all the Pinterest cliches, sure. But so do drizzle and cold and sludgy leaves so yeah, just let me cling on to bare legs and going outside without goosebumps for a wee while yet. Oh and cropped tops. Cropped tops are life, DIY or not.
Whilst cropped tops aren’t anything new round these parts, long sweepy things (other than my hair) certainly are. Having so much fabric swishing around my ankles felt so weird at first! Fun to try something different and *slightly* more boho than my usual style. I’m yet to trip over the hemline and fall up the stairs, but there’s time. Much as I don’t even want to talk about Autumn, I imagine it’ll work mighty fine with my skinny grey bodysuit too. Or a black poloneck. And with hidden thermal tights underneath when the temperature drops 10 degrees overnight.
Don’t think I even need to say where this skirt’s from do I? Marks & Spencers, you have my heart. 20 bonus points for making maxi skirts that are actually long and not always catering for petite girls only. Big thanks on behalf of all tall-ies. Another 20 points for popping it in the sale too. Please don’t disappoint me this autumn!
Are you really a fashion blogger if you won’t risk traipsing through a farmer’s field or pose in front of stranger’s doorway for the sake of an OOTD? Photogenic fields all around in France and I couldn’t miss the opportunity. Blogger life.
Now the end of summer’s just around the corner it’s sinking in with me that I don’t have an ‘end of summer holidays’ to count down to for the first time in my life. That’s a daunting yet exciting thought if ever there was one! Days just kinda go on indefinitely now. Just gotta make the most of each and every one!
