Heathcliff – it’s me, oh Cathy

There was only one thing that sprang to mind when viewing these pictures: Wind + rolling countryside + long billowing skirt = Wuthering Heights, what else…?

I love flowy romantic looks and I’ve been wanting to wear this (very dressy) skirt in the autumn with a sweater and brogues for ages now, and it’s finally chilly enough to do so. I bought the sweater (Tesco again, hooray for supermarket clothes!) a couple of sizes too big because my size was quite short and fitted but I wanted to pull it in with a belt – I don’t think a slim fit would have had quite the same effect. The desire to pile on everything in nude and neutral shades was overwhelming; this was quite hurriedly put together but I think Emily Brontë would have been proud 😉

Sweater: F+F
Skirt: New Look
Belt: Asos
Brogues: New Look (changed the laces with ones bought off eBay)
Leopard scarf: Asos
Necklace: Coast
Nude cuff: Asos

    I love the pictures they remind me of the photoshoots done on the Irish Moores or Scottish Highlands done for classy knitting magazines & I'm not talking about the cheap Lion Brand stuff… This has got to be straight out of Vogue Knitting. I love cable knit sweaters!

    You look absolutely fabulous! Love the soft neutrals-the gorgeous maxi, and the detailing with the layered necklaces! Gorgeous!

    I do love this look. I especially like the way you combined the scarf and necklace. Very cool. I have some shoes similar to yours. I think I will borrow your idea of changing the laces. Great idea! I started following you.
