Although summer has returned briefly this week I’m working more autumnal colours into my outfits. Rust, cinnamon, ochre and olive look glorious in the early autumn sunshine. This yellow and burnt orange combination captures the warmth and vibrancy of this time of year when the sun is hot but the leaves are starting to turn.
You may recall that I also have these trousers in orange; I love the high-waisted style and the gold buttons, so when I saw them on sale in multiple colours I bought these and a navy pair too. The fabric is slightly thinner than the orange ones, but seem a little more generous on the waist…which is a good thing. High-waisted trousers can be unforgiving, especially after a hearty lunch!
This outfit came about because I was trying these trousers on to see if I could still do the zip up (lockdown didn’t so my waistline any favours!). But to my relief they still fit…and I can breathe in them, which is always a bonus. I just happened to be wearing this top when I tried the trousers on and was surprised by how much I liked the yellow and burnt orange together.
The tan bucket bag and cinnamon mules add depth and give the outfit a more autumnal feel. The shoes were a bargain at only £11 reduced from £35. They’re from the vegan range of footwear at Marks & Spencer. Despite the fairly high heel they’re reasonably comfortable, although I wouldn’t want to walk too far in them!
The chunky wooden necklace is years old and I nearly always wear it with this top. I remember thinking it was expensive at the time – the grand sum of £15! Well, it turned out to be a good buy because I’ve worn it loads. I wouldn’t think twice about spending that on a necklace now!
