We’re having a funny old autumn here in the UK. It’s been one of the warmest Octobers on record, and the poor old plants really don’t know what to think. I went to Wisley gardens today with my mum and aunt, as we often do in the autumn, to look at the amazing colours before they go past their best. But so many of the summer and even the spring plants are out! They think winter has been and gone, so they’re all flowering in their planty confusion. It makes me sad that they’ll get such a shock when the first frosts come.
Anyway, if ever there was an opportunity for a season-themed outfit and a few photos, this was it!
My autumn colours outfit consisted of a (very old) mustard-coloured cardigan top, and a pair of khaki Heyday trousers*, plus matching bangles and some pale lemon yellow plimsolls. It really has been unseasonably warm… though I was pushing it in short sleeves. I did have a jacket, of course!
This is a 1940s suit jacket with a rather smashing shoulder and hip detail. What do you think of this new paler (for me) lipstick? It’s one of Soap & Glory’s new Fabulipsticks in Red My Lips. I picked it up at the S&G cosmetics launch, and it’s one of my new favourites. It smells lovely and lasts well… but it is very much NOT red, despite what the site and name say!
Here’s me in a tree! Well, with a tree. That’s all for today – I’ll leave you with some more nature porn… isn’t it a glorious time of year??
