I think it was inevitable that upon returning from Lanzarote, I’d feel the cold. It seems to be extra-autumnal now, particularly because the clocks have gone back. There’ve been morning frosts for the first time this season and there’s a definite nip in the air. It’s time to get cosy and to add a few stylish layers. Enter a new grey coatigan.
A Grey Coatigan
As you know, I work from home, so unless I’m going to a meeting or a lunch, I usually wear jeans and a long-sleeved top. I like to be comfortable and warm. But I also like to dress decently enough to run errands or call at my friend Sally’s for a cuppa and a catch-up, (a weekly occurrence). A coat or jacket is too much if I’m popping in and out of the car, so I tend to throw on a scarf or a serape. However, I spotted this grey coatigan a few weeks ago and knew it would be a very useful addition to my autumn wardrobe. It’s soft and comfortable but with enough structure to make even the most casual of outfits feel that little bit smarter. You can find it here at Next.
My love affair with stars continues, (I can’t wait to wear my constellation dress again), and this navy star print scarf is a favourite. It’s from my own range at my boutique and is just £10. I have just reduced the price my wrap bracelets, pendants and brooches. This is throughout November ahead of the Christmas rush that I encounter in December. As always, UK delivery is free.
Rather late to the party, I have embraced the trainer trend. I’ve seen white trainers on almost every other 40-plus blogger and didn’t think I’d ever succumb to this most ubiquitous of shoes. How my head and resolve waver when sparkly, glittery stars are involved. These are also from Next. ( I’m not sponsored by Next. I’ve simply been very impressed by their collection for the last few seasons).
The “Love” Slogan Tee
The fabulous Love slogan top was a gift from Baukjen. It has super long sleeves and a long body for tucking in if required. There are several other gorgeous designs too, including some other slogans and some with stars on which I desire in every colour. Tops like these make every day dressing so much more beautiful.
