Ready for Fall

Photobucket
The title of this post was one I 'acquired' from The Sartorialist. I thought it so perfect as I am always so ready for Fall, or Autumn as we Brits say, my absolute favourite season as you already know. It makes me think of cosy clothes with lots of layering. Hot drinks. That woody smell in the air that lets you know Guy Fawkes night with lots of bonfires is soon to arrive. And with Christmas just around the corner to look forward to.

The colours in the Autumn season are second to none. Rich browns, greens and reds in sepia tones, honeyed caramel leaves and shrubbery. See here for my post for Autumn last year, it was made early in the season when the leaves were only starting to fall. This year to mark the occasion, I chose some Gardens in Northumberland where the colours are at their very best. And I chose some vibrant accessories to accentuate the rich reds around me.

I love your beret, you're gorgeous in it. I don't use to wear any hats because them make my head ache, it's a pity.

i agree, fall is one of my favorite seasons for fashion, just because of the amount of options you have for getting dressed, with layers, knits, etc...

love your tights by the way..

beingdena said...

Beautiful photos, you look incredible.
I have a friend who recently moved over to UK< we were talking and he said he had not seen a single pretty British girl. I argued that there are loads of them, so I mentioned Gemma Arterton but he said she isn't "real", he means real girls...so I googled your blog and showed him your photos and said here you go, a gorgeous British girl. Ofcourse he agreed and thought you are stunning :))

Please don't tell me your ITalian or something now;)

hugs x

You look gorgeous, I love the entire outfit right down to all the little details.

I look forward to the same things this time of year: lots of layers, woolly hats and mittens, darling booties, hot tea and cocoa, the smell of the trees, and planning for Christmas!

Hope you're having a great week :)

Such beautiful pictures and I love that beret! We have a tree opposite that I can see from our kitchen window and I love seeing the leaves turn through a gorgeous red before they go gold. Love the autumn so much... already counting the days to toasty bonfire night and Halloween! x

Grit and Glamour said...

Lovely, lovely, lovely! The hat and the autumn colors suit you. I almost had a hear attack, though. In the first shot, it looked like you had cut your hair...I'm glad to see it's all still there! Not that you wouldn't look amazing with a blunt bob and bangs...but so many ladies have short hair, and few have the kind of hair that can be worn long and dark like yours.
