Dancing leaves...



Autumn is definitely my favourite season, the air is crisp and starting to get colder, there's my birthday and Bonfire Night to look forward to and best of all, the leaves, in all their flaming colours, are on the ground to crunch through... When Danni and I were in London, I picked up a few bits and pieces, including this gorgeous hand-knitted cardigan from Vintage at Topshop.  I really love chunky knitwear at the moment and the red of this fitted perfectly into my wardrobe.  




I paired it with my beloved Tesco dress (which I have worn so much it is literally falling apart) with my over the knee socks from Celia Birtwell for Boots, Next shoeboots and my Primark belt which cost me 50p! This was the perfect outfit for a walk through the park with Mark and the shoeboots allowed me to crunch through the leaves- one of my favourite things to do in Autumn!




The colours of Autumn are just so pretty and the light just makes everything seem much prettier!




Of course, walking and taking photos is tiring work so we walked to the pub to relax and refuel... We normally choose something from the lunchtime menu but as it was Sunday, we opted for something slightly different...




Mark had roast beef wrapped in Yorkshire pudding with all the trimmings whilst I opted for a steak ciabatta and half of a bowl of onion rings...YUM. I don't know what it is but crunchy onion rings are one of my favourite things ever, I absolutely LOVE them! It was lovely to just spend some time wandering around in the park, although we did get some funny looks from people as I was posing for photos ;) I think the light, the colours and my outfit combined to create some pictures to show just some of the reasons why I love Autumn... 




I will leave you with a rather lovely (cough) gif of me trying to pull my socks up... how attractive!

Must agree - I love the colours of autumn. It's long sleeves all the way for me now though.It's freezing today!

Danni and Maria said...

It was freezing today! Normally I wear long sleeved tops about twice a year but I have been wearing them all the time recently! :)

I love all the autumn leaves in the pictures. And the chunky knit looks great.

I have no idea how to keep long socks up either!!

Danni and Maria said...

Harriet- Thank you, it's my new favourite piece in my wardrobe :) It really was, chilly but not too cold and the leaves were all crunchy :)

Sherin- Thank you, I think keeping your socks up is one problem that we'll never know the answer to!

Love the picture of the leaves! I think I definitely like Autumn/Spring but they are always such fleeting seasons leading into something more extreme. I still can't keep my socks up, I need sock glue!

Danni and Maria said...

I think you are onto something with the sock glue! Definitely need some... I think half of the reason why I love Autumn is because it's gone so quickly- you have to just enjoy it whilst its there!
