I've been a bad blogger this weekend. Sorry guys. Too much social interaction. And today was spent on the couch all day recovering from punch overload lastnight (apart from a break to go out for lunch and to The Department store for socks). I have spent a good deal of the past week trawling the depths of TFS though, hunting inspiration for this year now that summer is over. As much as I love the heat, it's so much more fun when you have multiple garments and layers to work with.
Everything in this editorial is what I want for autumn - those days when you want to look put together. Pencil skirts, slim knits and turtlenecks. An solid dose of check - especially those trousers. I'm looking forward to using the great over-dyed tartan I got the other week for something - probably trousers and maybe even a matching jacket. I'm also really liking that shorter, pencil skirt silhouette at the moment - although it naturally requires more thought in balancing proportions when you get dressed. That Kate Sylvester skirt will be perfect for this, and I might hunt down a vintage pencil. Because I can't dress like a teenage boy all the time.
