Autumn transition - stylish sleeveless coat

I am now back in London and summer has finally faded into a mellow autumn. My linens and cottons are packed away safely for another year. I have sorted through my autumn/winter wardrobe. My heavy knits and coats are still in moth balls, I am not quite ready for those yet. I don’t have much wardrobe space so have to continually rotate my clothes.

Now it is time to update and add a few “on trend” pieces. The first is a long sleeveless coat by Hopefashion in a soft wool fabric. I loved this style last year and am really glad the style is still popular. It extremely useful over a sweater on mild autumn days.

I just love this elegant building. It is right in the heart of St. Tropez. I think it is now a local government building. However I image that in the past it was an elegant residence.

Talking of elegance I think this bag below oozes modern elegance. I also noticed whilst checking out the shops in St. Tropez that the style in shoes for this season was decidedly masculine. Personally I have loved this brogue style for many seasons now. In fact it has definitely become my default style for footwear; except in summer when I love white trainers.

Fashion inspiration from St. Tropez

I love to window shop in St.Tropez to get fashion inspiration for the coming season.

I got up early on Tuesday morning and caught the shuttle bus into St.Tropez. Tuesday and Saturday mornings are market days in St. Tropez. I love to wander up and down the aisles taking a quick look at all the stalls. I have been doing this for many years now and know exactly where my favourites stalls can be found.
