Cosy knits and bobble hats

wrapping up in autumnI can't tell you it's getting cold outside. Some days are chilly and others are verging on warm they are so mild. On this occasion it was brass monkeys-ish (we're going back to our mid November weekend away in the Peak District), it was a Monday morning and we'd had to leave the cottage before 10am so we made the most of the rest of our day so we took a walk through Lathkill Dale (ideally more photos to come in time).

In true Sophie style I fought convention and went out in a dress. It was only for an hour or so and involved no challenging terrain if you discount the steep road in and out of the valley. Attempts to pack light meant that I brought a variety of items in the hope I would have all bases covered; from long treks up hills to dining out. This dress last worn a year ago is one of those strange pieces I really never know where to wear; it's too thick for summer, has long sleeves but won't go too far keeping me warm enough on its own. A base layer underneath and an oversize jumper on top resulted in an appropriate combination along with thermal tights and sturdy walking boots. 
My cream tartan scarf and Masato knitted bobble hat are outdoor essentials at the moment; keeping me toasty on the windy and nippy days. Don't forget that there is still time to support the homeless beanie campaign by Masato which is an awesome project to be a part of. Plus I adore my hat, which not only keeps me warm but also a less fortunate person on the streets too.

  1. We had our annual Christmas Guides weekend this weekend, but our "post Cmas dinner walk" was rather warm. Not the frosty constitutional we'd been hoping for.

  2. It is certainly odd weather. I've been wearing a thin 3/4length sleeve sweater with a vest top today and am.really warm!!!

  3. Your outfit is so autumnish! The weather is really crazy, Gosh. No snow, no cold - nothing. I like winter, when it's in its whole self with fluffy snowflakes and everything, but I'm beginning to miss autumn too.

    1. Hey there! I like winter too. Have you ever tried to make a snowman? Sophie, and you? It's such a great pleasure, especially when you make it with kids!

  4. ahhh more sweater envy from me! I'm living in jeans and jumpers at the moment, I really should try and be more adventurous, but the need for comfort and warmth win over every time at the moment. I have just knitted myself a fab new beanie... I just need to make the hugest of pom poms for to adorn it!

  5. I love the photos of yours and the idea about the knitten hats is really lovely. view it now if you worry about your academic performance and you have no idea how to improve it
