Colours of Autumn OOTD

Hiya lovelies.

On Saturday I went to the park with hubby to take in the changing colours of the season. I wore an outfit with Autumnal colours.








There was no one in this section of the park at all when we were about to start taking photos, and then an endless stream of people appeared as soon as hubby pulled the camera out. These photos were taken in dribs and drabs while about 20 people strolled past at their leisure. You can almost see my clenched teeth as I'm thinking 'If you're not going to eff off then at least bloody hurry up!'

I sprayed my hair with dry shampoo before leaving the house and forgot to brush it out. Oops! The funny thing was I made a point of showing hubby a massive white streak where I'd sprayed it too close and I still forgot to brush it out. D'oh

Cardi, Angel Ribbons, Simply Be £40.
Mustard jumper, £9 Sainsburys. (Sainsbury's, start selling your clothes online fer gawd's sake!)
Maxi skirt, Simply Be (2010 or before.)
Dull hair, unbrushed out Batiste (ha!)

Have you visited your local park to take in the lovely colours?

I love the contrast in the leaves - the greens, the browns, the oranges, the reds. So lovely.

This is the first year I've ever got into Autumnal colours like mustard. The older I get the more connected I feel to the seasons if that makes any sense? I'm sure as winter draws on I'll probably find myself drawn to more jewel colours like reds, purples, teals etc. I find my desires to wear colours corresponds to the colour of my skin. For example, in summer when I'm brown I love to wear khaki, burnt orange, beige etc. as those colours suit my warmer skin tone. In winter when I'm more ghostly, jewel colours seem to suit me better. Does anyone else crave wearing colour like this or am I just a weirdo?!

Thanks for reading!
