After an atrocious summer, London spoilt us with lots of gorgeous sunshine and mild temperatues throughout September and October. I’ve been tanning it up on our balcony and have managed to push back the un-dusting of my winter wardrobe by a few extra weeks.
Autumn is one of my favourite seasons: The warm golden light, the rich and saturated colours of the leaves fallen from the trees and the first few hot chocolates of the season. London’s parks – Hampstead Heath and Primrose in the North, Hyde Park and Holland Park in the South – are the perfect escape to relax from the hectic pace of the city.
Wardrobe wise, , fall is the time to tone down the bright colours of the summer, seeing the return of opulent colours such as burgundy, forest greens and mustard yellow. These colours are not the most flattering on me, but I still love wearing them and like to freshen them up with a crisp white shirt.
I’m wearing: Burgundy skirt with suspenders by Claudie Pierlot. Since my French colleague at work told me about this quintessential Gallic brand, I’m hooked! Their style is romantically French consisting of classic staples with a girly twist. Think (plenty of!) Peter Pan collars, sailor stripes, classic shapes and a calm colour palette.
Love the pastel coloured houses of Primrose Hill
