One of the best things for me about Autumn is the colour, I think it is by far the prettiest season in our area, mainly because we have so many forest and woodland areas. Don’t get me wrong, the other seasons have a lot going for them and I feel sad to see the back of Summer when I can watch the kids running around butt naked in the garden, having a blast, but Autumn has a special place in my heart.
It’s not just the colour of nature that I love either, but for some reason I have a real thing for Autumnal clothing too, thick jumpers, brushed cotton and cord all in those beautiful Autumn fashion colours – burnt oranges, beautiful reds, racing green, navy and taupe. I just adore it, and I don’t know if it’s because I’m quite pale but olive-y or because I’m brunette, but I feel like those colours really suit me and I don’t look quite as washed out on the school run as I do in Spring when I’m trying to wear lighter colours. Last week I bought Edith a few Autumn/Winter pieces for her wardrobe (and for Christmas too!!) and I noticed we both looked like we indulged in a few of the best Autumn fashion trends when we got dressed!
A few weeks ago JOY the store got in touch to ask me if I would like to review a piece from their new clothing line, which I was delighted because I have an obsession with their beautiful dresses and skirts, not to mention those chunky knits and flared trousers. I chose to review this stunning orange dress because there is absolutely nothing like it in my wardrobe and I love the vintage style. The dress has that glorious crepe feel, so it’s easy to layer up on a morning and then light and easy to wear on those hotter afternoons that we seem to be getting at the moment.
I’ve added a few pictures of my beautiful autumn dress, but I don’t think I do it justice – in fact I’m pretty sure I’ve just figured out why I’m not a fashion model or blogger! The best thing about the JOY store is that they have a mid season sale on at the moment that you really can’t miss out on – everything is up to 50% off! This dress is even part of this sale, so you can complete your Autumn wardrobe before the bad weather really kicks in.
Great ideas for looking best in autumn.The collection of images is awesome.Thank you so much for posting,keep it up man!
