A Versatile Autumn Leaf Print Top in Shades of Teal, Petrol and Taupe

So it's now officially autumn and right on cue, the temperature has dipped and there's a decided nip in the air, both in the mornings and in the evenings. The middle of the day though is still relatively mild, so I've been continuing to wear easily removable layers.
This was yesterday's outfit, worn for a short trip to town and to the excellent local farm shop. My top is new and is from Tulchan, a brand I wrote about a few weeks ago, when I wore their grey spotted raincoat. You may remember that it's based a mere forty minute drive away, just over the border into my native county of Lancashire, (yes, I know I'm brave moving to Yorkshire). It's a very versatile shape having three-quarter length sleeves and a simple silhouette. It could very easily be dressed up with leather or coated jeans and a pair of heels for a night out, or it could be teamed with tailored trousers or a skirt for the office. I'm wearing it in what I'd class as a smart casual way with slim jeans and a jersey tweed blazer. The colour palette is beautiful with shades of petrol blue, seafoam and taupe and as with all Tulchan clothing, it's very well made.

Because it a daytime look, I added simple jewellery. My Danon long dragonfly pendant fits the bill perfectly. I do have a teal glass statement necklace though that would look stunning with this for an evening look.

The Danon T-bar leather wrap bracelet with dragonfly and heart charms is one of my favourite autumn accessories. It's incredibly comfortable and light-weight so is perfect for everyday wear, but one of the diamante wrap bracelets from my online boutique would add all of the requisite sparkle for the evening.

I popped my bag down for a moment so I could put my jacket on and our cat Socks decided she would put in an appearance and guard it. This is the Alexa grab bag by Ilex London and is a beautiful clay shade, which is an excellent neutral, especially with an autumnal palette.

My blazer is a Jersey tweed which is ideal for me because I don't like the itch of woollen tweed. It's one of my favourite styles and I have it in pale grey and brown too.
