And just like that, the brief love affair with summer is over. That's not to say that we won't still have some lovely, sunny, possibly even nigh-sweltering days in the next month or so, but it now officially feels wrong to wear a too-summery dress. And the morning chill supports it!
I just couldn't be creative this morning, despite having a couple of plans while falling asleep last night/this morning (despite my lamest of efforts I can never seem to get to bed until after 2 am- which is not ideal on days when I have to be in to work at 9 (or earlier, like this week). But then, that's why we have old favourites! This dress quickly ensconced itself as the most cuddly yet feminine of sweaterdresses, and I love the heathery non-contrast of the tweed blazer with the olive. Um, yes, olive, which is apparently very difficult to capture in low-light conditions, even with whatever photoshop tweaking I throw at it!
Blazers in autumn are just, well, the best. I really hope I can somehow snag one J Crew's heather caramel schoolboy blazers on sale at some point this year! Which also reminds me of a nice pair of tweed pants I haven't worn in 8 years...time for a repeat?
