There’s definitely that end of Summer feeling in the air.
Even when the sun is shining it has that weak and watery feel that reminds me that the evenings are already getting darker and gives me a back to school kind of feeling.
As I sadly put away my summer frocks for another year it’s time to start thinking about those holes in my winter wardrobe that need filling and the new pieces I want to update it for another season.
Top of my wish list for Autumn to be begged, borrowed, saved up for, stolen, made or hunted down in some way are….
High Waisted Trousers
Specifically these ones from Heyday. Probably in a nice sensible seasonal grey, though Forest Green is tempting me….
Fair Isle Knits
Inspired by Lena Hoschek I’ve been stalking several Fair Isle tank tops and cardigans on eBay, but they seem to be going for silly prices, meaning I am evidently not the only person with my eye on this for Autumn…..
There’s very few knits like this I can find on the High Street at the moment, maybe later in the season. But this cardigan from Very.co.uk fits the bill. It’s from Love Label though and considering the quality of the last cardigan I got from them it makes me a little nervous. Maybe I need to try to learn to knit again.
Because I love this skirt so much and inspired by the Louis Vuitton catwalks I find myself longing for some more circle skirts, preferably in tweeds and tartans (I’d like some pencil skirts in these fabrics too!)
Hopefully I’ve worked out how my sewing machine works and between us Mr Chick and I can figure out how to make some. If not then there’s always this one from Zara.
Note for Local lasses: Poppy Valentine in Norwich has just got some of these lovely wool circle skirts in. Also available online, for £59!
I’ve wanted a cape for ages. So far I have NEVER seen a lovely cape in a Charity Shop, and considering the price of most of the ones I see this might end up staying in the realms of my dreams.
This one from Urban Outfitters is perfect though.
