Autumn is absolutely stunning this year isn’t it? I think it’s because we had a semi-decent summer that all the leaves are such exotic shades of autumnal loveliness. What makes it even more wonderful is that the weather is still proving to be in our favour and we’ve been making the most of it ahead of the imminent chill!
I’ve had my Mum with me for a couple of weeks as she’s not been well so she’s come to stay for some R&R. It’s been lovely to spend the time together and when she has had the energy, we have had a little wander in and around Stratford upon Avon which has been a real treat so I’m particularly thankful for the weather not being wet, cold OR windy.
So along with autumn is the season of birthdays for us as I’ve mentioned before. So far I’ve had my husband, my son and my two step sons and next up is my daughter Beely. We popped out this morning to get supplies for her sleepover (we are at that age!) and she snapped this pic below of me as she spotted the light on this beautiful Cotswold wall. She has not only a great eye for lighting, but all the lingo of a budding photographer, “chin up, chin down, look this way, look that”… it was quite amusing and I’m really not a good model so I was dying of embarrassment at the same time!
Saying that, I’m loving this look this autumn. I’ve lived in my Clarks Caddy Belle Boots over the last few weeks with either my MukLuk leggings or skinny jeans and on this occasion, I’m wearing a Chelsea Muse black shirt with reptile print detail on the edges and a long duster cardigan.
I think I’m going to start doing a look each month of one or two favourite QVC pieces that I am sporting so please pop back and check regularly. I love fashion; my Mum was a dressmaker for years and made nearly all of my clothes growing up (and bought the others for me when we were in Paris!) I learned everything about style from her and definitely caught her passion for fashion. I never learned to sew as well as her, however I still make the odd dress or piece here and there and I definitely doctor a lot of what I’ve bought! I think our wardrobe is such a huge expression of who we are so I get a real thrill out of QVC fashion and sharing different looks with you.
In the meantime, please feel free to join in with conversation below, I do my best to answer everyone .
