It’s March, that means spring (which I LOVE!) and yet I celebrate with autumnal colours.
[Reading time: 2 mins]
A break in the incessant rain meant we’ve enjoyed a little sun over the last few days, and I’m sure it’s because winter is over and we’re now in the midst of spring.
BTW I don’t take aaaaaany notice of 21st March as the first day of [astronomical] spring. (Likewise, who on earth would say that 1st-21st December is still autumn and not winter?!) The meteorological seasons are FAR more my cup of tea because really, who wants to drag winter out for another three weeks like a negative Nancy. My brain is far happier “knowing” that it’s spring come 1st March, even if the weather doesn’t play ball…!
That said: I wore full-on autumnal colours this weekend. Maybe this will be my last hurrah in autumnal stripes and layers before I roll out the pink, yellow and florals?

SHOP THE LOOK:
Most of this outfit is all seen-before stuff, with one exception (first, the seen-befores):
The mustard (tobacco brown?) paper bag waist trousers were last seen here. It’s amazing how the high waist can make someone who’s very long-waisted (i.e. long body, short legs) seem like they have legs that go on forever – and that’s even without heels.
The striped sweater is by the fabulous Seasalt Cornwall and worn with a camel blazer here. (Can’t believe this is only its second appearance on the blog, I’ve worn it loads.) Scroll down for lots of striped sweater alternatives.
Finally, the sheepskin gilet which I got in the sale at Asos. I’d been borrowing Keith’s padded gilet a lot when I didn’t want to wear a full coat – the time came for me to get one of my own. I got one of the last ones (good for me, bad for you), but this one’s similar and also on sale, hurrah! Mine can be worn open and with the collars down (as above), or zipped right up so that the collars stand up and keep your neck warm.
I am FOREVER grateful to any item of clothing that provides a bit of neck warmth. Let’s hope said items are not needed too much longer…
