Girls, the time has come. Those carefree, cider drinking, leg baring summer days are coming to an end, and a long stretch of wooly tights and winter coats awaits us. During the crossover, transitional dressing can be tricky to master. Is it too early to break out next season’s jacket? Do you sweat on the tube in your autumn gear or freeze in the office whilst desperately clinging on to warmer days?
I can’t pretend that September doesn’t excite me immensely (hello Fashion Week, chunky boots, and a back to school vibe no matter how long ago you graduated), but this year I’ve been less eager than usual to say goodbye to my summer wardrobe.
I think this may have something to do with a certain pair of sandals. Just before I travelled to Rhodes in July for a family holiday, my sister gave me these Office heels. Since that day I have over-worn them to the point that they are beginning to merge with my feet, and all other footwear has begun to gather dust. In my defence, they do work with everything.
I’d say we have another week or so to make the most of SS14 before the autumn collections take over. Three guesses which item will feature on my workwear list before then.
Jumper – Zara | Jeans – Topshop | Sandals – Office | Bag – Mulberry | Lipstick – Lancôme Rouge in Love
