Well it certainly feels like the new season is here now with the kids back to school and grey, wet weather. I really haven’t missed the morning school run or the cooler weather. I’m hoping we still get some sunshine and decent temperatures before Autumn really starts to bite. I’m seeing lots of rich, Autumnal colours in the shops now – and even Halloween decorations!
Dressing for this time of year can be awkward, that in between phase when the weather can vary a lot from day to day. One way of subtlely shifting your wardrobe towards the new season is to work in autumnal colours in lightweight fabrics that can be layered. I bought this Finery graffiti floral print shift dress, along with a few other pieces from the same brand, from Secret Sales earlier this year. They were all hugely discounted, with this dress costing just £15. I also bought the skirt in the same print for £11. The micro dot trousers and the shirt dress I wore back in April were other bargains in the same order. The prices were too good to resist!
Although the weather isn’t great here in the UK, it’s not cold, so I don’t need to dust off my coats and boots yet. When I do, this dress will work perfectly with either burgundy or navy tights and boots. For now I’m letting my legs see the light of day with these navy ankle strap shoes that I picked up in the M&S sale for a mere £11!
Apart from the white base, there are four colours in the print of the dress, providing plenty of options for accessories. I opted to pick out the burgundy with my hat, bag and ring. The navy shoes, blue earrings and black sunglasses break it up nicely. In future I may go with a navy hat and bag if I swap the shoes for burgundy boots.
