Planning your Autumn wardrobe continued

Planning your autumn wardrobe continued

I have just returned from cycling to our local village to stock up on fresh veggies. I am lucky in that I live in South West London very close to the river Thames so I can cycle or walk along the tow path. At this time of year, the river has taken on a grey/blue tinge which reflects the change of season. The trees have turned gorgeous golden shades of bronze and rust. A few of the mottled bushes look similar to the leopard skin bag above. Leopard print continues to be “on trend” this season. In fact, I think it has become a classic as it now makes an appearance in some form most autumns. Personally, I don’t wear leopard as part of an outfit as it tends to clash with my cool colouring. However for bags and shoes that is another question. Leopard is a great addition to most wardrobes.


Black/red necklace / Leopard print shoes (similar US) / burgundy ankle boots (UK link) / Green cross body bag / burgundy/black studded loafer/ ethnic necklace / Leopard bag with red tassel (Uk link).

I have also noticed that a deep bottle green has joined the party this season. It is one of my favourite colours and has been out of favour for a few years now. I will definitely be investing in some green. khaki is also very popular, perhaps it also has become a perennial. Again I prefer the cooler toned greens and will definitely be purchasing this green top by MeandEm. I intend to experiment with unusual colour combinations this season. I will probably be trying this top with my pink coat or possibly my light burgundies from last year.

    I was in London about 2 weeks ago along the Thames to sightsee. It was absolutely beautiful, and the countryside of England was breathtaking! I hope to be able to visit again some day! I enjoy your blog very much!!

      Hi Mindy
      Yes, our part of the Thames is very green and beautiful. Glad you enjoyed your trip and hope you come back to visit our green and pleasant land soon.

    I’m really drawn to the bottle green color you show in your post. I’ve seen it paired with leopard. If it’s the right shade, the two together make a lovely and unique pair. Thanks for the post!

    I am another fan of bottle green, which is a good thing in a season of burgundy and pastel pink. Those two are suited to accessories only for me.

      I agree I am glad bottle green is pack. I intend to wear it with my pinks and burgundies. If those colours do not suit it would look equally good with the warm rusts and browns.
