I don’t know what it is about this time of year that fills me with such excitement and such zest for life. I’ve always loved autumn and have written before about the sensuality of the season- the crunch of leaves, the tactile textures of knits and of faux fur, the twinkling of candles and fairy lights and the unmistakable smokey smell of an open fire. I love the nip in the air, the misty mornings and the hazy sunshine. The burnished leaves add a warmth and a richness to summer’s green palette and the light can look quite magical when shining through semi-naked trees.
I’m fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the world, just a hop and skip away from the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The outdoors plays an important part in my life and is something I enjoy enormously. I’m always on the look out for appropriate, stylish attire and Dash is increasingly becoming my go-to place for exactly that. It has undergone a revamp of late and the new collection is very nice indeed.
This whole outfit is from there and I absolutely love it. The jeans are described as slim leg, but in actual fact, they’re almost a skinny fit. Super-stretchy and very comfortable, I’ll wear these with a sparkly top and heels as soon as I get the opportunity.
The waxed jacket is in the most perfect shade of khaki green and has a zip fastening as well as buttons. It’s a very flattering shape and is the perfect weight for transitional dressing. This also comes in “wine,” a beautiful berry colour.
The pink jumper is 100% cotton and has a lovely herringbone texture. It could easily accommodate a lace-trimmed vest or cami underneath by means of an extra layer when the temperature dips a little further, or perhaps even a shirt.
And my olive leather brogue-style Chelsea boots from Lotus co-ordinate with the jacket beautifully.
