Hello, my lovelies! So yep, I guess it's Autumn for real now. And in celebration (though I'm personally not a fan of cold weather) I went all out on the colours of the season. With grey. And black...?!

I'm so glad to be wearing my tobacco brown sweater again, it was my go-to knitwear item last year and I think it'll be the same again this autumn/winter. You know, despite my reluctance to let go of summer, deep down I do love layering, wool coats and leather gloves... it's just the light evenings I miss!

But right now it's the weekend, and the clocks haven't gone back yet - so happy days :))

  5. Finally you have something on which is not my taste. Had to wait quite a while for that. Thought you were not human.
    This sweater is not my style, neither is your hairdo. But even then you remain a sparkling person.

    1. With "not human" I meant some sort of a super woman. English is not my native tongue, so sometimes things come out wrong.

  7. I just saw your blog on ASOS Fashion Finder and I am in loveeee!! You are so ridiculously cute. And we won't tell either of our husbands I said that. :P You have such an amazing quirkiness to your style. Feminine but with a vintage masculine feel. I love it. I'm so glad I found your blog, and I will be following you through all the social media channels. :) <3

  8. Catherne, this is such a nice autumnal look! I have to say that I'm glad the cold season has arrived (well, I like having seasons, if you see what I mean...) and while looking at my wardrobe last week, I realised that I have too much grey, so this FW will be about colour! You wear colours so well and I'll take some inspirations from you! BTW, the printed dress of your 40th birth party was beautiful!

  10. You look so good in oxfordsI I love these and the light colored pair you wore recently. I was also charmed by your hair. It looks good on you and it's something different.

  11. I just love your style. It's always so much fun, mixed with color and patterns. That scarf is stunning!

  12. This outfit is absolutely beautiful! The colours, the textures, the shapes! And your hair, oh my, you know how much I like it... I smiled when I read the wod "autumnal", it's the first time I see it being used (ok, me being Greek and living in Germany, no wonder). Just lovely. :)

    1. Hmm it's funny - I know Americans call Autumn "Fall", but I've wondered what they use for "autumnal"... I assumed they call it the same?? Hopefully someone will tell me?!

      Thank you Katherine, you're a sweetheart as always! xo

  16. Love your hair! And the cuffed trousers with oxfords is such a cute and feminine touch! ;)

  17. I'm not a fan of cold weather either! I'm a fan of your braid though!

  18. This is a lovely outfit! Like the contrasting colours, the mannish pants and shoes.

  19. Oh.My.Goodness. This has to be one of my favorite outfits on you EVUH!!! Even with the gray and black, it's still every bit a cheerful fall ensemble. I am horribly jealous of that gorgeous scarf. What an amazing thrift find! Happy Monday, Catherine!!! ~Sarah

  20. Great outfit! You are so skilled at putting unlikely colors together and making them look fantastic.
    Love the brogues!

  21. You look wonderful! Your hair looks so pretty that way...if I tried to wear my hair like that, I'd look terrible. But on you it's just classically lovely.

    I adore that scarf!

  22. I am so in love with your style and use of color. That sweater and scarf goes so perfect with your hair color and complexion. Lovely braid do as well.

  23. Adore the hair! And, I am a big fan of the "mannish" style. I often wear vintage men's shirts and then feminize the look with sparkly earrings, a ruffled jacket, etc. Just joined as a new follower :)

    p.s. Americans do use "autumnal", and we use "autumn" and "fall" interchangeably.

  24. Great fall scarf colors!
