Hello Autumn...

This week has been full of goodbyes but before I leave for yet another farewell dinner here is a quickie outfit post.

I wish I had worn this faux leather vest I bought from H&M more often this summer but there are some things you tend to forget about. Right now I'd rather get my hands on something long sleeved for the breezy weather that has definitely returned for good. Yes, hello Autumn and hello Autumn colours. Sometimes this skirt is a little bit Hawaiian shirt-like and other times it reminds me of Autumn leaves. I'm going for the latter this time...

Speaking of Autumnal colours, there were some really beautiful shades over at the Marc Jacobs show from earlier in the week. Seeing as it was for SS11, the warm tones were probably meant to evoke summer sunsets and the like but as you can see from the outfit above, these are colours that I would wear all year round. I adored the backstage shots and the constant tweeting from Robert Duffy over at Marc Jacobs International leading up to and during the show. If you're a follower of theirs on twitter then you would have seen these but I just had to save my favourites and share!

It was a great show but it seems that a lot of bloggers are similar to me and prefer Marc by Marc Jacobs for it's much more wearable pieces.

I'm actually quite lazy with tuning into fashion week but now with NYFW done, the world has it's eyes on LFW! Can't wait to make a brief visit on Tuesday to soak up the atmosphere.

  6. Lovely outfit, I'd definitely try and make full use of the leather vest whilst you can. Maybe over a skater dress or thinner jumper? Nice for nights out too! I also preferred the Marc by Marc show, very wearable and relatable, though both shows had great colours. I'm always wanting to wear the next seasons offerings way before time!

  16. Something I find very interesting about some bloggers, specially the northern hemisphere ones, is that you guys separate colours according to seasons, i.e. orange and brown for fall etc. Here in Brasil we don't have that (maybe because there aren't very distinguished seasons in terms of weather), but I think it is a little limiting concept sometimes. Anyways, your outfit is really cute! Have a nice time at LFW :D

  18. I think the vest is perfect for this time of year. It might have been too hot for summer, but then again, I tend to sweat a lot ..especially, in our humid summers.

    So love your skirt! Great fashion on the runway! Although, gotta say, none of it would be for me.

  19. Honestly, I think Marc Jacobs still has a way to go for us short waisted girls.

    Love your outfit.

  23. Love the colour combination of your outfit. That's the only problem with skirts in the autumn, they blow every where!

    I loved the colours at Marc Jacobs. I am being incredibly lazy with these fashion weeks. I haven't written one post yet. Maybe I am best to leave it to those who are a bit more on the ball.

  36. Thank you Winnie that is so sweet of you. Go for it, once you find a playsuit you like just wear heels with it and it will feel just like a dress. Asda and primark have some really cute one's, oh and new look xxxxxxx

  38. Hi, I love your blog. How do you get to attend all these fashion shows and go on backstage? Do you get invited or do you pay tickets to get in? I'm from london and i'd like to go to these shows! =(

  39. Hey Anon. I mentioned in the text that the photos are from Robert Duffy's twitter. So I didn't get to go!

    However if you wanted to go to LFW you need to apply at the British Fashion Council as press (and hope to get approved), then contact relevant PR for the individual shows and hope you get a response! Hope that helps!
