"Faux fur and lots of eyeliner..."

In response to the question "What are you wearing today?" from Mark, there really was only one answer! I hate to follow the stereotype but I was really hoping that I could pack away my thick tights and coats until September at least! [OK complaints about the weather are all over!]

Top: ASOS, shorts: Topshop, fur gilet: D.I.Y from Dorothy Perkins, tights: Primark, shoes:  c/o Spartoo, necklace: Accessorize
The last time I wore this gilet I was toying with trimming the sleeves down and I'm glad I did as it makes it look a lot less bulky and I feel less like a gorilla! 


I ordered these Buffalo shoes after searching for some flat shoes for work. Online they are described as grey but when they arrived I would say they are closer to a khaki grey/green which works surprisingly well as a neutral in my wardrobe. These are real leather so they are incredibly soft and hardly took any wearing in which is always a bonus. 


Outtake of the day: trying to keep my ears warm, after a freezing cold gust of wind nearly blew me over, luckily my jacket kept me warm...


What have you been wearing now it has gone chilly again? Which colours do you consider neutrals?

I love the pattern on your shorts, they look gorgeous! The fur gilet looks gorgeous too, I think trimming down the sleeves a bit has definitely made it more wearable.
I must admit I much prefer autumn/winter fashion to summer fashion, which is probably the only benefit to this horrible weather for me!

I love the shorts and those shoes sound mega comfy! I can't believe how cold it is at the moment either, I have been wearing Autumn layers and scarves!

I've been living in knitwear again. It's so bloody annoying.

I've gone back to predominantly wearing jeans and tights!
I love that fur gilet. A perfect jacket for cooler weather.

Love those shorts. My trust old tartan cape has been hauled out again, and I'm back in baker boy caps to keep my head warm!

Ooooh looking rather lovely. Like the shoes missy, very nice, but definitely not grey!

This is the time of year that I actually wear jeans more than anything. I don't wear them as much in winter, as I live in boots, and I'm not mad keen on my jeans tucked in, so now I can get away with flats and jeans and a top that can be layered according to how freezing or not it is, that's what I tend to live in.

That said, I'm sat here in sweats, a t-shirt with a hole in (going in the bin once I've worn it) and cat slippers.... Revision Chic at its very best!
