Sorry for the dark (and slightly out of focus) photos today – one of the pitfalls of trying to catch a fading light in a leafy and poorly lit ‘tunnel’. I’ve had an incredibly full on week, working on a large event and finishing up in my current role so I’m really looking forward to seeing what Monday has in store for me – as they say, there’s no rest for the wicked.

I’m coming to the end of my three month capsule wardrobe, and given how unexpectedly cold it’s been this past month, I’m looking forward to getting some of my more substantial sweaters into regular rotation. To say that the last three months have flown by is a bit of an understatement, and if you’re curious about how I’ve found Project 333 given my propensity to get a little ‘spendy’ and go on the occasional shopping binge, then keep your eyes peeled as it’s coming.

As for the rest of my Sunday afternoon? I think I’m going to curl up with a nice cup of tea (I recently picked up a Moroccan Mint tea with rose petals which has my name on it!) and get stuck into my current (re-)read, 1984.

My current favourite spot

I never quite imagined I’d end up with a white couch – particularly given Luke’s disdain for the concept (won’t it get dirty?) – however completely by chance, that was exactly what we ended up bringing home a couple of months back. It’s ended up turning into one of my favourite spots in our home; drenched with all day sun from the large bay windows on the weekends, and stacked with enough pillows and blankets on a cool Autumn eve to keep me nice and cosy.

I’ve had a few requests on my Youtube channel to share our current space, and I figured what better place to start than our living room.

Admittedly, we’re still in the process of decorating our space, however I will be embarking on a DIY (of sorts) this weekend for the bedroom which I’ll be sure to share before and after snaps of. Needless to say, the end result is likely to be white with a hint of gold…

The smock top

I thought I’d share with you all a couple of quick snaps of my latest 5PFW addition; the smock top. This was the more impulsive of the three pieces I’ve picked up so far, and it’s also the only one which I’ll be tucking away until Spring rolls around in about three months time.

One thing that is hugely lacking in my wardrobe are prints, which ironically were something I had in sheer abundance just a few short years ago, so this year I’m trying to find that balance between clean minimal lines and a little printed whimsy.

I’ve still got another two and a bit months to go, and probably a few too many options up my sleeve with what to pick up next. Let’s just say it starts with a ‘C’ and ends with an ‘e’…
