I’m wearing jeans a lot this season. They’re often the easiest thing to wear when the weather is between mild and cold – that sort of chilly weather that we Brits often call “brisk”. Before I want to put on my winter coats, I just want long sleeves, jeans with boots and a big scarf, so that no skin is showing that will get cold on my arms and legs and I’m sufficiently bundled up in knits. Once the winter coat comes out, it feels like there’s no turning back.
I was listening to a programme on the radio the other day that was talking about favourite colours and what they say about you if you like them. They got to orange, and as the presenter joked “Whose favourite colour is orange?!”, I nodded my head in agreement – who likes orange anyway? Oh, turns out, that’s me!
I can’t say I have a favourite colour – I’ve never been good at choosing favourites, I’m far too indecisive. But as autumn comes round, I find myself wanting to match the turning leaves, so this burnished shade of orange springs up in my wardrobe. Just like I try to save my dark greens for winter, I save my pumpkin oranges and mustard yellows for autumn.
And this cable knit jumper from LOTD is ideal for that “hygge” feeling of autumn. The feeling of it being cold and brisk outside, but you don’t need to worry because your jumper is warm and cosy, and on top of that, it matches the changing leaves on the tree.
I managed to snap these photos by rushing straight out after work on the Friday evening before the clocks change. We finish early on Fridays which meant that I just managed to catch the beautiful sunset. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite so easy to find a nice spot I wanted with autumn leaves in the background to get the sunset in the photos adequately while still capturing my outfit!
