Autumn Planning

That's right.  It is still summer and I'm thinking long sleeves, knits, trench coats and boots.....  I desperately need some transition pieces.  It's raining here again this morning, the sun isn't up and it's just blah.  Perhaps summer will come to us late again this year?

I need:
Casual Basics:
Long sleeved white classic shirt
Neutral jacket
Trench coat

I've been having a good look around the Internet at a couple of my favorite sites.  Some are still showing Summer sales, but Hobbs are forging ahead.  Their colour palette this year is black, blue, white, red and coral.  Here are a few of my favorite things....





Stella McCartney

Marc Jacobs




Lela Rose
 Aside from the Trench Coat, I don't think there's anything too scary.  Obviously I'll have to save up for the watch!!  I truly love the denim skirt and that belt, it takes me back to early school days (remember snake belts?).

I'm waiting for Liberty to update their website.  I just know there will be lots of Vivienne Westwood designs to ogle over.....

Have a lovely weekend all.

Nice picks! Thank you for pointing out Hobbs and Liberty, I've bookmarked them both as inspiration sites.

Congratulations on starting to plan ahead - I love your inspirational picks!

Great choices! Don't know that I'm ready to start thinking of autumn just yet - it's still too hot to contemplate handling (thinking) of anything but summer fabrics.

All of those are fabulous! I really love the trench coat and the coral dress.:]
