Usually I can be counted on to whip out my winter wardrobe from September 1st. But this year I clung on to summer, willing good weather to stick around for my wedding day on the 21st. Thursday it rained. Friday was freezing. Saturday was just perfect – warm and sunny with a light breeze and a glorious sunset. No need for that Kate Middleton-esque angora shrug I spent a whole day searching for, then.
After the wedding we plunged straight into 30-degree days in Santorini and by the time my feet finally touched home ground, I hadn’t seen a jacket or pair of tights for what seemed like forever. And I missed them dearly.
As a winter baby and huge fan of autumn, you can imagine my delight, then, when a cold snap arrived this week. Yeah, yeah – I know we all love the sunshine. But it’s a special day when you can finally retrieve your favourite heavy leather biker from the back of the wardrobe and wear it with bundled-up pride. Hooray!
I bought this jacket for £100 in TK Maxx a few years ago – at the time it felt like SUCH a lot of money for a jacket but it remains one of my favourite purchases and I’m always happy when the weather turns so I can wear it again.
Do you have something in your wardrobe you love pulling out for autumn?
