The summer has broken here with a bang;  I think we’re having the full whack of autumn rains today.  We walked into school, avoiding some of the puddles and laughing at everyone gridlocked in their cars, all nicely showered but still afraid of water! It was chaos.

It’s brought fall dressing to a head though, and there’s nowhere better for browsing  transitional classics than Toast.  This group of clothes is from their OAS range, which stands for Ordinary Attire Studio and are also the three letters at the heart of Toast.

The design aesthetic of simplicity, durability and wearability at it’s core.

It’s workwear reinterpreted for easy workday wear in the modern world.

It’s everything you want in your wardrobe really.

It feels horribly unfair that summer in the UK is already slipping away over the horizon, but this week has heralded non-stop torrential rain and the unearthing of boots and jeans.

Normally, there’s a tipping point in late summer when the weak sunshine, falling leaves and hit of frost take on a tantalising sense of expectation for soft layers and roaring fires..but not in August. Not before terms even started..

But it seems that we’re in serious transition..that time when bare legs get mixed with big cardies and upper halves look like winter, whilst below is still hopeful for sunshine.

 A time to look ahead for some serious wardrobe planning.

Of course, I’m still praying for an Indian summer..but I’ve lived here for too long not to be prepared: 80s mohair cardigan and long, lace-up boots, here I come…

Rain, Rain Go Away..

IMG_4067It’s dismal in London with driving rain, strong winds and the knowledge that we’re no longer in the land of fairy lights, pine cones and endless glitter.  So I thought what better time than the New Year to break the diet fall off the wagon get even more depressed give me a facelift to give the Blog a facelift?

IMG_4075The weather means the sky has been turning all sorts of colours.IMG_0233 IMG_0231
At least we’ve all been safe at home, snuggled up – next week it’s back to the daily grind and the school run…weather please, please improve otherwise I’ll be investing in a fisherman’s sou’wester. And a boat.
