Over the weekend I completed the most joyous of fashion tasks – I packed away all my summer clothes (most of which I didn’t even get to wear… thanks, Mother Nature) and dug out my chunky knits, cord skirts and wool dresses. Winter is coming, Game of Thrones fans.
Unpacking clothes you haven’t seen for months is basically just ‘no-spend shopping’ (the BEST kind of shopping) – everything seems new and your debit card remains safely in your purse. I’d completely forgotten about this dress and the Zara gilet – both sale purchases earlier this year – so wearing them again is like wearing a brand new outfit.
I’m far more comfortable in the rich, dark hues of autumn/winter fashion – give me rusty red over pretty pink any day. Cold weather clothing, with its careful structure and thicker fabric, seems to suit my figure more than your average strappy sundress. And as soon as October rolls around, my bottle of Garnier Summer Body goes back in the bathroom cabinet as I embrace pale skin (and 120 deniers) for another 6 months.
Winter is coming. Hooray!
Have you unpacked your cosiest cardis yet?
