Autumn is the season where the weather turns cold and crisp the sky are big and blue and the leaves turn a golden colour, an art students dreams come true. But as much as I love walking outside in Autumn, I also love the feeling of going into a warm cosy cafe after a walk outside. There is something truly comforting about that warm air that hits you and that smell of freshly made baking and coffee, peering outside at the beautiful autumn landscape from the comfort of your cosy spot inside the cafe. Today was a particularly satisfying day as the contrast of the cold outside with the warmth inside created a beautiful condensation on the windows which gave a mysterious, more abstract look to the outside, and a comforting reminder that you are sheltered from the coldness of outside.
I love Autumn, crisp blue sky, golden leaves, the perfect time for a long dog walk with my favourite little pup! Autumn means a new fashion season, my favourite layering, lots and lots of layering, different textures, colours, materials and patterns. After previous years picking out the loudest, brightest coats for autumn I wanted to invest in a staple black coat which I could wear over and over again and would look different every time depending on what it was styled with. I tried various different styles but decided on the cape because I feel it is chic and can be dressed up or down, the winter version of a little black dress. I wanted a good quality coat as it was essential that it would last, yet I don’t have a massive budget so after looking around trying to find what felt like the impossible, I stumbled across the idea of TK Maxx. And in TK Maxx I found many beautiful coats by designer labels such as Kate Spade many discounted by more than 50%. The cape I chose had big pockets (always useful), a belt emphasising your waist and had splits in the arms allowing your jumper underneath to be exposed meaning it will look different every time you wear it and can be slammed up for evening with long gloves.
