Swooshing into Autumn

It has come to an end: the Great Month of exciting travels and adventures is no more. September had been filled with another country every week, a new adventure around every corner. The journey started off in Puglia, Italy, went over to Ibiza, took a little detour to Scandinavia and ended up in New York City. The travel bug got me, it got me real good.

I’ve enjoyed every single minute of every single trip we took and every place we visited – I did this super conscious because I knew coming back to reality would be hard. Reality is back to busy days at the office, bills to pay and … Autumn! Visiting warm countries (yep, even NYC was a whopping 78 degrees!) had us holding on to Summer a little longer, but it’s time to face the music – and wear the coat. Admittedly, I love getting to layer up in chunky sweaters and big teddy coats, but I’m not looking forward to the short days and dark evenings. Rosé on a Summer’s night’s terrace trumps fleece-blanket evenings on the couch any time.

Here’s a little outfit that is perfect for transitioning into Fall. I love pairing big chunky knits with bare legs or flimsy skirts. This particular slinky treasure is something I came across on Topshop and it immediately struck my eye. The golden yellow colour is divine, the flowy fabric gives great movement and will have you feeling like a princess, really. I threw on my beige Asos knit and leopard printed booties which I scored in the Summer sales. There’s so much leopard going on everywhere right now, and if you know me or ever checked out more than 2 pages of this blog, you know I am a sucker for all things leopard printed. Very much into snake prints as well lately, since those are on show everywhere. I’ve been on a very productive streak lately (#knockonwood) so there are quite a few outfit posts lined up for ya. Check back soon & let me know if you dig this outfit in the comment section below :)
