The A/W edit – what I’m wearing now

WC waistocoatIts official Autumn is here.  I always think of September as a time of change and it certainly has been a big one these last few weeks as Little A has donned his uniform and trotted off to ‘Big School’.  Gone is my lunch partner of 4 years and instead the house feels eerily quiet whilst Little B is having her lunchtime snooze. It has given me a few extra hours though to embark on the Autumn Clean.  My wardrobe was in serious need of some TLC and it was time to get rid of a lot of ‘I might fit into it one day’ items of clothing.  Something quite cosy about putting away your summer stuff and bringing out the tights, dresses and cardis.  I am sure I will be seriously bored of my winterwear by January but in the meantime I have bought a couple of new pieces that brighten up my day when confronted with miserable British weather.

The White Company have done it again with their AW collection.  I literally feel I could live in their catalogue.  First up is this super wearable black cardigan with leather sleeves.  Perfect to take you from day to night and great for the changeable Autumnal weather when its not quite cold enough for a coat.  My second hero piece is their Boiled Wool Waistcoat – see main pic. A great transitional piece it looks fab paired with a simple jumper and statement necklace. The ultimate layering piece, I will be slinging it over my leather jacket when the weather turns cold.
