I love Autumn. It is my favourite season by far. But I absolutely loathe the transition from Summer wardrobe to Autumn. I don't know why but I find it really hard to get it right in the first few weeks. Moving house has made this period even harder this year as all of my autumn/winter clothes are packed away meaning I am left with pastel coloured trousers and t-shirts, sandals, and shorts. Aaaah Autumn wardrobe nightmares!

In the midst of my confusion I trotted off to H&M to gets me some new AW clothes. I gots me a nice warm cream cable knit jumper and mustard coloured basic skirt. Teamed with my old faithful Topshop booties and my ox-blood Del Rey I look a little more Autumn a little less Summer cling-on. And no, your eyes did not deceive you, I did indeed say my 'ox-blood Del Rey'. I decided to treat myself for my birthday after having some major house issues. After much deliberation I went for the red as it's a little different from the norm and looks super classy. LOVE! 

To contrast things up a bit I teamed the ensemble with some bright blue nails. I can never resist buying nail polish in H&M. They put it by the till point to induce an impulse purchase. Even though I know this I fall for it every time. Idiot! 

Now I'm wearing the right clothes I can get on with enjoying the crisp days of my favourite time of year. Cold noses snuggle into scarves while chilly fingers defrost wrapped around a warm hot chocolate. The sun still makes an appearance before it departs for Winter making me smile in its rays. Could not live in a country without seasons.
