The slippery slope

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

I don't know where September and October think they've vanished off to. The slippery slope down from August to Christmas has me annually trying to thrash my way back up, clinging on by my fingernails before inevitably resigning myself to skidding down the loose rock face, picking up grazes. It's cold. I'm considering a thermal vest 'neath my tops and the hats, gloves and scarves are about to become standard uniform. The marketing of Autumn-Winter fashion frustrates me so much. Lovely suede booties, leather jackets, cashmere off the shoulder jumpers... Er, not outside you can't. It's all weather proof and warm outfits needed in the countryside. A pair of suede boots would last two minutes before getting slopped in a muddy footpath and that fabulous snazzy jacket won't keep me warm enough by half. I basically have to wear as many layers as I can fit on, plus a coat and the accessories along with my trusty walking boots. Nothing like those glamorous indoor women. Don't even get me started on off the shoulder knits...

It does just feel like that tiny window for mild, cool weather evaporates in a matter of days then it's all winter coats and wrapping up warm. I do have enough jumpers and skirts but there are a few key pieces that my wardrobe is lacking which I have been keeping my eye out for in charity shops for. The other day I managed to get a big bleach mark on a pair of trousers I rely on as a fail safe which has left me quite sad as they'll be tough to replace with something I'm happy in. This pair of black skinnies is the a recent find and they are pretty comfy and I see myself wearing these a lot over the months to come.

Are you looking for anything in particular to wear this Autumn-Winter?

Take care,
Sophie

  2. It does switch from warm enough for no coat, to needing a coat and scarf oh so quickly!
    Don't get me started on off the shoulder or cold shoulder jumpers, they confuse me far too much.
    I have found a few good items recently - two coats, a pair of boots and a Christmas jumper (it's nice, honest).
