I love autumn, don’t you?
Plus the clothes! I’ve never felt well equipped to dress for summer – I’m not comfortable showing so much skin (especially my pasty leg skin) during the day. I am much happier dressing for the cooler weather – tights, boots, coats, layers – YAY!!
I tend to wear opaque / semi-opaque tights all year round, particularly for work, but somehow I feel ‘wrong’ wearing opaques during the summer. Don’t get me wrong, I love sheer tights (M&S bodyshaper tights in ‘illusion’ are my all-time favourite for a natural look on pale skin (see here)) but I’m clumsy and ladder them so easily, plus laziness plays a part, and sometimes keeping the leg stubble at bay isn’t top of my priority list. Opaque tights are harder to ladder (although I have still succeeded on occasion) and cover dry/stubbly legs up a treat.
So during the Autumn and even Winter, I feel like I can dress like me more easily, without looking like what I’ve got on is completely inappropriate for the climate.
I also love a good boot – nothing says ‘autumn is coming’ like a new boot to stomp around in. This year I have added these lovely boots from John Lewis to my collection.
