Winter Berries On!



Oh how pleased I am to sound like a broken record ... I have seriously 💕-ed our glorious Indian Summer!  And it was yet another warm and sunny day when I wore my berries (it's sooo much colder now 😥).

The sun was warm, the sky was blue,
And I chose to share my berries with you!


Yes, I know it's autumn when I see the first sight of winter berries.  And despite the warm day, I chose to put on my fave fauxs and my berry coated leggings went on for the first time this season.

Berry leggings on - now it's officially autumn in Pout World!  

They're from Next and AW17 but still on the website this season.  Well, why wouldn't they be when they are so fabulously comfy to wear?  Next isn't stupid!
I also spotted something very similar in Primark last week, half the price, but don't know if that makes them half the quality?  But the quality of these Next leggings is top notch and I'm still shell-shocked from the mileage I got out of them last winter, yet they washed a dream and came off the line like new.  And with a zero ironing requirement, I'm pretty much in love with my berries 💕.


I teamed them with a neat print berry top (M&S, £8.50).
I liked this look but why rest on my laurels ...

It's always a good idea to try some new looks with old clothes when you first take them out for the season.


So I tried my berries with the classics, denim jacket (Gap) and faux leather waterfall biker (Peacocks).
I was happy with both but The Photographer With Fashion Views preferred the biker look (well he would, wouldn't he - I'm guessing it's because it's double the leather ... "Tell me about it, Stud!" (do men EVER get over that Sandy moment?!)
It's like when I asked him to choose between Shakira and The Pussy Cat Dolls and he chose the latter, "because there's more of them" !


But hey I'm inconsistent, so I chose neither of the  jackets and instead opted for this supersoft Arran sweater (Primark AW18, £10).
And off I went on my morning constitutional.


But of course the jumper soon came off, it was amazingly hot for this time of year.  Have I mentioned our glorious Indian Summer?   Well, maybe not in the last few paragraphs!



This was the perfect outfit for the weather, for the activity ... and for me!





A la perchoine,

Mary.

  1. It's great to welcome in a new season with one of our fave outfits - for me autumn begins with the green jumper! I'm intrigued by your berry leggings and my interest is piqued by the fact they're still available. They look very fashion forward with the lovely berry jumper!

    1. So pleased you're piqued by leggings, Gail, because the are a.maz.ing! Saw them on the website a few weeks ago at £28, I think, and in Primark at £12. Your only problem will be NOT wearing them!! And you know what, I'd love to see them paired with your green jumper, think that would create a stunning autumnal look. Hugs and enjoy an abundance of green jumper in the months ahead, x.

  2. Dear Mary. What a treat to be enjoying some proper seasonal weather!!:o) Time for the scarves to come out (my fave winter accessory). I love your very berry outfit; it looks so comfy and warm. Where the jackets are concerned, I side with Photographer with a fashion view;the waterfall jacket is my favourite too although for me it has nothing to do with silly girls prancing around like felines! Haha. I also must say that you are looking fantastic and so slim! xx

    1. And it is a great to read your comment, Dutchie! Think we'll leave TPCD's to TP eh?! Dank u vel, it's so rewarding to hear the results of my new eating plan are being noticed. Maybe if I had you pushing me up cliff paths I'd be losing a little faster too!!!
      Hugs, keep warm, x.

    1. Oh you are so sweet, Christy and yes, the cosy look was my face too, but it was a bit too hot for it by the time I'd had a brisk walk down to the beach. Today I think that sweater would be staying on! Hugs, keep warm keep cosy, x.

  6. The berry leggings look great on you and I loved the patterned top with it. It's really nice to greet old favourites and this is a very versatile piece. Loved the big soft jumper - just what's needed today!

    I look forward to seeing more variations on the berry leggings...

    Stay warm
