The woods hold something magical for me during autumn. The slightly damp woody smells and trees full of fiery colours are so beautiful. I love the satisfying crunch of leaves and collecting conkers and chestnuts. I miss long walks deep into the woods but for now I'll settle for keeping to the outskirts and admiring them from a car window. I took these photos outside the country house which I visit often for alternative healing therapy. The grounds are so silent but full of life, I've often seen regal looking deer wondering about, and busy bunnies and squirrels. These photos were taken last week, it's been so mild that this cosy jumper is all I needed to keep me warm.
To take credit for this outfit would be wrong because my good friend Susanne (who blogs here) picked out the dress for me and helped me style it for autumnal weather. Actually Susanne has the exact same dress which looks amazing on her. A friend who doesn't mind you becoming a dress twin is a friend worth keeping! - especially when they recommend such amazing dresses! Closet contacted me months ago about a collaboration but it wasn't until recently that I felt my health was stable enough to commit which gave me some time to ooh and awh over their designs. I'm really impressed with the quality and fit of this dress and I can't wait to wear it throughout the seasons. The autumnal floral print is beautiful and features my favourite autumnal colours, burgundy red and mustard yellow. The versatility of this dress is amazing, I'm sure I'll be wearing this outfit a lot more over the next few weeks, maybe with thicker tights and boots when it gets colder and without a jumper in spring, but for now I'm really enjoying this cosy look.
