We’re finally starting to settle in to our new little house now; we’ve met the neighbours, gone for a stroll round the new area, had Tom’s parents down for tea, and now have the internet installed – YAY!
Another plus to add to the seemingly endless long list of awesome things about our new house is that we have a garden, which means… I have a little secret place to take outfit photos! I’ve wanted to do outfit posts for absolutely ages – I’m mega envious of what other lovely blogging people like Lyzi and SJ and She and Hem are up to, but am still finding my feet a bit. Bear with me.
Also, please excuse my washing line.
[serious blogging face!]
As we all know, the weather is beginning to take a turn of late. All that Twitter seems to be full of is people gearing up for autumn, planning a little weekend getaway in a forest somewhere, and shopping for their A/W fashion staples. August isn’t over yet and we’re already waving goodbye to summer!
This makes me happy. I absolutely adore autumn, October is my favourite month and I cannot wait til it’s cold enough to start putting on my winter coat and mustard hat and go down to the park and just have a kick around in some leaves.
The other day was a bit nippy out, so I tested out my autumn/winter mustard ensemble, comprising of last year’s coat from Urban Outfitters, Primark dress, mustard jumper from H&M and a cheery mustard hat from Zara. To top the whole lot off I pinned this awesome crocheted poppy kindly sent to me by the Museum Selection (*).
This crocheted beauty will make a nice change to the November paper poppies which always melt in the rain, and seeing as it’s the 100th anniversary since the start of WWI this year, it would be shameful to not wear a poppy, and I’m pretty sure I’ll have a hard time forgetting to wear this bad boy.
Plus, I have serious crochet envy right now – the whole thing is made from teeny tiny crochet, which is far more than my measly skills could muster. It has given me some much needed inspiration, and since receiving my poppy parcel I’ve been Googling amigurumi and becoming slightly obsessed!
To combat all the miserable serious blogging face, here is an extra special photo of me when I couldn’t get the remote back in my pocket quickly enough:
Hopefully this is one of many upcoming outfit posts, if you’ve got any tips I’d love to hear them!
