Not quite Autumn...






Every February, despite being our hottest month of Summer, there is always a faux Autumn day. February chucks a March and is 15 degrees cooler than normal, give or take.

You know it's faux Autumn when:
  • There is the smell of burning in the air. Not because of wood fires burning cosily in someone's house, but because there's back-burning. Nowhere near as romantic.
  • Girls are wearing various combinations of stockings, ankle boots, trench coats and scarves. These are items they picked up last month when retailers figured they'd bring in A/W2011 gear during a heat wave.
  • Nearly every conversation you hear begins with, 'Isn't today chilly?' and continues with something mentioning 'bed', 'bath' and 'hot chocolate'.
What do I wear on faux Autumn? A 60s cotton shirt dress, a fake Hermes scarf, and a pair of beautiful Ksubi heels I borrowed from Astin Kirby.

Love WTP x

Ok... and just one more...
