There’s something about sunshine and the waterfront which just to me go hand in hand, almost like the notion that peanut butter is so perfect paired with a saccharine raspberry jam. It’s usually when the warmth hits that I being to feel so incredibly grateful to live in a city which is surrounded by water, the proximity of which I’m almost certain I often take for granted.

These less than ideal late October/early November temperatures continue to call for some light layering, which considering my predisposition for bare legs at even the smallest hint of sunshine, is borderline necessary. Rather than keep the mood dark, as I’m usually inclined to do, I’m finding that reaching for the softer palette of my wardrobe goes a long way in improving my mood. Combine this with the softly twirling pleats of a midi length skirt, and you’re bound to get more than a few smiles from me.

Get the look:

    That chunky knit paired up with that skirt is such a sweet combo and I really like how those softer tones just mesh together perfectly. Pretty look babe!

    That tonal look is so nice – the oatmeal of the sweater with the blush of the skirt. And kitten shoes are always a welcome addition. x

    Love the shoes..there was a Charlotte Olympia sample sale in London last week, I couldn’t face going and not being able to afford anything. Even with 70% off.

      Temptation like that is the worst, especially when you know you can’t buy anything. I think it’s how I’m going to feel during the NaP sale at the end of this year!

        I might go into hibernation to avoid it all

    I love the combination of big cosy jumper and long skirt – you look great. I recently bought a navy midi skirt and I’m struggling with it. At the moment I’m getting it out every weekend and tucking boxy tees into it but I’ll have to try a heavier jumper and leaving it untucked.
