No one ever wants to wish the sunshine away. Especially all of us in the British Isles that never usually really experience a summer.
But, the highstreet dictates that August means Autumn with the bombardment so far of leopard prints, silky satin midi’s and less basket bags than we’ve seen for quite some time!
And so we follow, lured in by the refreshing feeling of the “new” and I have to say having worked in retail for more years than I care to remember, I still feel so ready to move the old stock on and bring in the new and the exciting.
In my non working life this equates to loving the gentle ease of the charity shops adding in old bobbled jumpers and in this case a cotton midi in brown paisley. I know right – DELICIOUS!
At first, yes, a 1970’s brown paisly midi skirt may not seem your go to transitional skirt, but look at her! She’s gorgeous! I love this little bag too, she’s got the sweetest handle, she is destined for my little Etsy shop – but I had to give her a spin first to make sure she was adorable. She is.
Teddy was far more interested in the ferns which hold a lot of treats if you’re a little puppy.
The little shirt is so pretty! A sheer cotton with a scalloped edge peter pan collar and tiny skinny bow at her neckline.
Yes, metallic green tiny block heeled ballet pumps,YES.
If this post is anything to go by I think I might enjoy the forthcoming autumnal weather. Imagine those shoes with thick black tights! Ugh I need a lie down.

Introducing one of the most surprising purchases i’ve made in awhile.
A pair of mens shorts several sizes too big = all the comfy.
I ended up being really pleased with this little outfit. The weird shorts with my oldest belt, thrifted accessories and my favourite top of all time.
My classic Breton is 100% cotton and from an amazing local store called Always in Colour
Predominantly menswear they offer THE most gorgeous style. I have a list. A long list. Yup yup.
My little sun baby.

I found this cute little dress in a charity shop for around £3 and there was just something about it that made my heart sing.
I am sat here outside the most beautiful independent store in Exeter called Lorna Ruby I worked here for many years and it is home to some of closest friends like this gorgeous human Gemma who is the store VM and owner of Cabinet Jewellery, THE most beautiful jewellery collection possibly in the world.
The weather has been so beautiful and this sweet little 90’s dress is so loose and comfy I actually managed to look summer cool rather than sweaty grossness.
Both of my bracelets are Cabinet Jewellery.

Teddy is my style sniffer dog.. how else do you think I find all the bargains?
But good grief it is EXHAUSTING work for a fashion forward puppy.

Earlier this year we got our Ted.
He is the sweetest friend.
We have already had so many gorgeous days together.
He smiles all the time.
My bear with my pup (heart melts)
