It's been a game of tights/no tights in London this week. It's cold and grey in the morning, than the sun decides to cook you by the afternoon. It's been a nightmare, to the point were I've now given up and I'm sticking with jeans and a layered top and sweater to deal with it. The other day was another guessing game, which ended in me being a bit too hot but anyway.
Denim is massive for this season, saying that I live in denim so there's no really change for me. I do want to embrace something other than my jeans, and as I now have a couple of denim jackets it seemed natural to go for some denim skirts and dresses. This dress is pretty cool it's such a great shape and so different from the others hanging in my wardrobe which tend to be more smock like. I really like the collar detail, and the fact it has pockets it's denim for grown ups - Which I like to pretend I am.

One plus side of the sun coming out, is being able to wear these cool lip glasses. They are a little silly, but I couldn't resist them. I'm getting use to wearing a watch again, I'm still obsessed with the fact it's wooden - As the queen of plastic jewellery it's refreshing to wear something more organic. My phone is forever dying on me, and it's much more relaxing to know I don't have to ask a bunch of people what the time is. Speaking about time, I still can't believe it's September this year has flown by. I'm really pleased to swap out all my summer wardrobe (yes I'm weird) for autumn pieces, I do like layering and in summer it's hard to layer anything. I think what with London Fashion Week around the corner, I always reflect on what I have in my own wardrobe. I think from now on, it can be my date in my diary to purge my wardrobe twice a year of all the 'but I will wear it one day' items.
I'm still clearing out my wardrobe (note to self you don't NEED anything), which feels great I have treated my boys to bits and bobs and slowly getting a little space in my wardrobe .. Okay so I've already filled the space ha ha. But in the new year I'm on a mission to clear more and try to get it down, I much prefer the feeling of being able to buy things because I have some space than hanging on to everything I don't wear. I know I'll be getting plenty of wear out of this dress, I love denim and it will be a great way to break away from my jeans every now and than.
