I guess I didn’t really think the reality through after accepting a lot of press day invites this season and I’ve been attempting to make sense of the few thousand pictures I’ve taken in the past few months. The inconsistent weather has reaffirmed my love for the Autumn season as I feel that clothes for the colder months are well worth investing in, seeing as we end up wearing them for most of the year. I can’t help it, I love layering up, disguising bits and putting some imagination into an outfit, time permitting. I’m really excited for AW12 as there were so many collections I adored and want to channel into my everyday life somehow (namely a slightly boxy 60s-style coat). Instead of wading through rails of vintage wares to find the answers to my AW12 prayers, I’ve picked out a few pieces from some select brands I liked this season. There’ll be a few more posts like this, which I will stagger across the Summer months (including a handily separated shoe-related post) so that your thoughts are perfectly prepped for Autumn by the time September arrives. Let the pretty pictures speak for themselves.
Most of this post is purely inspirational as I doubt my budget will have quadrupled, but exciting to see nonetheless. I’m determined not to buy too many more summery items now (apart from a few things I’m willing to go in the sale) as I’d prefer to save some money towards some key wardrobe updates for next season. Although I’ll be able to wear a lot of the fluffy angora jumpers and a-line skirts I bought last year, I’d definitely like to embrace the novelty knit trend and find the perfect velvet dress. Is it crazy to be thinking about this sort of thing in early June? Hopefully I’ll have a more summery post for you soon! Which brand are you most excited about?
