I feel like I blinked and suddenly we’re saying hello October! Ben and I have lived in our house for exactly a year today! With that, we’ve managed to now experience every season. The difference is that last year we were trying desperately to make the house our home. So didn’t have as much time to explore the city I grew up in.
We’ve been watching the trees start to turn from green to yellow, orange and deep red. We are thoroughly enjoying another transitional season. It feels as though summer disappeared with a click of the fingers. Literally within a day, we switched from sunbathing in the garden to wearing coats as the sunshine disappeared and the temperature dropped.
I’m actually enjoying having a much more finished house and being able to cosy up on the sofa in the evenings with the rain hammering against the windows. We haven’t quite switched on the heating yet, but we’re definitely not far off!
Dressing for the season is something I’m passionate about and I haven’t met a person that the warm colours of autumn doesn’t suit. Camels, coppers, oranges, reds, capuccino and creams packed into knitwear and beautiful coats. The best part of coat season though, is having a husband. Not that he’s quite realised it after I just ‘borrowed’ this coat from his wardrobe. But the oversized coat trend means that his coats work just as well on me, as they do on him!
Under the coat, my obsession with ruffles and big sleeves continues into my knitwear this year. I don’t think it takes much to understand why this jumper already sold out and restocked on the website.
My favourite part of autumn is having all the hygge vibes from an outfit. These boots feed that vibe. Not only do over-the-knees look good, but they keep your legs warm like a giant hug.
I was worried when we moved from London to Devon that we wouldn’t have the same beautiful locations. How wrong I was. I photographed at this wall last year, a bit later in the season and this definitely won’t be the last time I shoot here this year. The entire building is coated in ivy which is spectacular as the leaves change colour against the brick.
Are you embracing what October has to offer?
