I recently announced on Twitter that I’ve officially given up on summer and am welcoming autumn with open arms. Now, that doesn’t mean I’m looking forward to months of grey skies, bitter winds and flat hair – no, dear followers. I’m not sadist. What I simply cannot wait for is the end to our constant quest for sunshine.
In autumn, I can wear tights and hats and scarves! All the pieces I want to wear now but can’t because it’s summer and wearing tights in summer is just plain ridiculous, even if your legs are turning blue because it’s only 18 degrees out there. Hmph.
So, until we’re hit with the cool air of autumn, I’ll be wearing this fabulous sheer shirt from H&M. It’s the perfect transitional piece – airy enough to wear with summer’s flippy sundresses but in that rich khaki shade I always associate with autumn. Sorry, chunky knit cardi – you’ll have to wait ’til September.
Are you ready for autumn or clinging on to summer? Have you started building your AW wardrobe yet? What will you be buying?
