With September fast approaching, the highly anticipated a/w full lines are nearing ever closer. As a sale-hater (I know it’s strange but I just can’t stand all the mess and rummaging in predominantly last years old rejects) and a winter lover (again strange but hey!) I cannot wait to walk into shops and be graced with the presence of non-sale, new season items everywhere.
But for this awkward in-between stage where we’re faced with the dilemma of dressing summery to accommodate the warm weather...unless you’re in England enjoying the heavy, unwanted rainfall that is (and I didn’t even get to wear my maxi dresses, sob!)...and suppressing cravings to adorn the new season’s delights, we are all left slightly baffled. Do we go with knits and tights to keep warm but ensure they are layered so we can easily cool down? Or stick with the floral tea dresses and squeeze as many days out of our summer wardrobe as possible?
Enter the high-street’s summer meets autumn pieces that make the transition between seasons easy and bearable. No more hiding indoors on a rainy day for lack of appropriate clothing girls! Here are just a few key pieces that I fully intend on treating myself to...after-all, there are only so many outfits you can create with leggings, jeggings and harem pants!
