Dreamy Looks for Autumn

I think I may be the only person wishing for the cooler weather to come, even though I'm a summer baby, I have never liked hot weather. I'm much happier wrapped up in a coat and legs clad in tights & boots!
Here is a gorgeous ad for Wallis from Vogue 1973 (sorry can't remember the month!) Browns and earth tones are my absolute favourite colours to wear, which I guess means autumn is my favourite season. I just love the liberty deco prints and billowy sleeves and tight cuffs poking out of the jacket.

I really struggle to find the right skirts and trousers to suit my style. I don't wear jeans and do not do skinnies. I really love skinny flares but I am not the tallest gal in the world so these can be quite tricky to find and are usually a bit jean-like, and I cannot abide any type of trouser with pockets on the back, it really bugs me for some reason.  So, my fashion mission for now is to search out vintage crepe knee length skirts, oh yes and a 30s style cloche hat. 

What are you looking forward to buying and wearing this season?

Ps - aren't the T bar shoes in the first pic delish?

I'm so with you on the cloche hat. I've been studying the early 20th century fashions lately and every time I see those hats I want to chop my hair off super short and go pretty hat shopping. We'll see if I ever become that brave! ;)

I'm so looking forward to winter, I prefer it to summer for the same reasons as you. Those T-bars are divine!

I agree too! Winter fashion is so much nicer! We can hide our pasty legs too! I love those earth tones too. e xxxxx

Dear Becka, I'm with you, I much prefer winter dressing. The trouser suit and Liberty print shirt in the first picture is gorgeous. I'd love to wear that now.

I'm going to be buying some boots and a good pair of trousers this season xx

I totally prefer fall and winter over summer, although where I live we get really get much of a summer.
I would kill for that dress above with the toffee colored hat, that outfit is fantastic.
