Autumn days..

Monsoon – Nantego Bag – £45

Here it comes.. I can feel it creeping round the corner and inviting itself for crumpets and tea. Hello Autumn. We’ve been waiting for you.

Autumn is my favourite season when it comes to my wardrobe. I like being cosy, but not so wrapped up that I can’t move my head from side to side.. nor so cold that I can’t feel my lips and end up dribbling hot chocolate all over my lap. That obviously didn’t happen last year. In November. In Le Pain Quotidien.

It’s also one of the more pricey seasons when it comes to clothes – the material is often heavier and there’s generally more of it – so I am taking it slowly and adding things to my wardrobe bit by bit.

This weekend I feel in love with this quilted dress from HOBBS NW3. I hadn’t intended to fall in love. It just happened.

Look how neatly they’re wrapping it up for me! The wrapping paper is designed by one of  HOBBS’ very own illustrators..

It fits beautifully and is perfect for this inbetweeny weather. Right now I’m wearing it with bare legs, (I didn’t buy the bare legs – they are mine. I grew them myself) and sandals. But as the days grow colder, I’ll team it with tights and boots.. can’t wait.

My two other recent purchases are this super pretty and cosy bobble neckline jumper from M&S..

I have had so many compliments on this bag in the four days that I have owned it. A woman stopped me on the bus to admire it and ask where it’s from – it’s a bit of a showstopper. It’s sturdy and elegant and very spacious. I’m carting around my wallet, headphones, iPad mini (in its ever so pretty case, thank you Ted Baker) make-up and Kindle and there is still lots of room to spare…

Neither of these items are ridiculously pricy and I think they all look and feel far more expensive than their actual price point.

So go forth and pinch my wardrobe. I won’t mind. Just don’t sit next to me on the bus… (unless you’ve got Twiglets.)

  1. that Hobbs dress looks beautiful – i do like the NW3 range as they are slightly less expensive too. I bought the wash bag version of the Ted Baker case for my sister the other day, I love it and might have to get the tablet case for myself at some point! x

  2. I love that Monsoon bag! I am having to stop myself from hopping over to their website and ordering it…I’m supposed to be saving up for a shiny new camera, and new handbags will slow my saving down. Boo for being sensible!
