A Change Of Seasons

Over the last few days, there has been a distinct drop in temperature signalling a move from the end of summer to winter. I have been holding off wearing my warmer clothes because it has been quite warm but I think the time has come to roll out the woollies. 

I am actually quite pleased at having the chance to wear my new (or should I say second hand) cable knit cape from Oxfam which is especially useful as I still haven't managed to make a decision on a winter coat. It was one of the capes that I featured in my Friday Finds and at only £8 from Oxfam online I couldn't help but buy it before anyone else snapped it up.

Its funny how a change of weather can trigger so many different outfit ideas when I had been starting to lack inspiration for those in between season sort of outfits. Apart from the cape I have not bought anything for the autumn or winter yet but have loads of ideas for outfits. I did consider wearing my new cape a different way for each day of the week but decided I might get so bored with it that I never wear it again, also it is supposed to warm up again towards the end of the week, perhaps the perfect opportunity to wear some of my jackets.

Cape - Oxfam
Top - Linea at House of Fraser
Skirt - Urban Outfitters
Leggings - New Look
Socks - Peacocks
Boots (El Naturalista) and bag (Esprit) - Spartoo

What will you be wearing to keep cosy and warm this autumn?

Have a lovely week.

Great cape! To keep cozy this fall/winter, I'm relying on tights/leggings under skirts, skinny jeans and denim leggings tucked into boots, cardigans and long-sleeved tees, sweater dresses and wool coats. That's quite a list, but then again, I do get cold quite easily.

What a great fall/transitional outfit!

For me, leggings, boots, and the ever-important cardigan.
