What I Wore: Impatient DresserWednesday, August 14, 2013
Well it may be only mid August but it looks like Autumn is already on its way in Scotland. The leaves have started to turn and I definitely regretted not taking a jacket with me to work this morning. The leaves are already turning, my tea intake has almost tripled just in the last few days and getting up in the morning is getting just the little bit more difficult. It's not all bad, it definitely opens up a lot of my mainly cold weather based wardrobe. I'm looking forward to thick tights, boots and wool. I'm sure I will regret saying this when it snows in September though.
Luckily it has warmed up a little for our walk with the dogs this afternoon, and the sun even poked its way out for taking some photos. One of the best things about the colder weather is the park being a lot quieter, the dogs are really enjoying getting back to their daily games of fetch. Scallywag goes absolutely crazy as soon as we get there, bouncing around until let her off the lead until she gets to chase her latest tennis ball.
This dress is one of my Autumn favourites, it was a wonderful charity shop find last year and although it has only appeared on here once before it gets regular use most of the year. I love the different take on florals, and the colours are really easy to mix with lots of my wardrobe. I've avoided it the last few months as it isn't cotton so it was nice to pull it out again. I pulled out all the brown bits and bobs in my wardrobe so I would match the couple of leaves that have fallen, although I'm really hoping they were just blown off by the wind.
I've got my first festival related event tomorrow and I am really excited. Plus I love any excuse to visit the Book Festival, Charlotte Square is such a lovely location and there is always so much going on. I'm hoping I can take a walk through the city centre on the way there and take a couple of photos. It's my day off, but I have lots of stuff to catch up on at home too. I really hope I can fit it all in.
