I think most Brits have accepted that autumn has come early, and our August Bank Holiday Monday was a wet, dull affair. No great surprise, but it would have been nice to have had a few days of sun in August! On the bank holiday I went with a Breton top and trench combination (which always looks great with jeans and wellies) - you basically can't go wrong with this classic look as I doubt it'll ever date. Even though I have quite a collection of different Breton stripe tops now, I added a little sparkle with my prized possession: my Les Petites sequinned stripe sweater (also worn here). I bought it in Paris in May and you can still still buy it online (reduced to €109, or about £86), which actually made me quite excited for some reason. I have no idea why - I already own one?! Maybe I'm excited for you at the prospect of you being able to buy one in the sale ;)
Have you started to embrace autumn yet or are you in one of those places that continues with heat until Christmas (hello, Florida), and do you ever wear the Breton stripe/trench coat combo like me? What other classic combos do you wear? Do share in the comments!
