Helloo my lovelies.
OMG! The last day of October - how did that happen?!
Autumn is well and truly here and most days on the island are chilly and crisp, and the number of dank and cold days are increasing at a ferocious pace.
It's the time of the season when the weather is scratching around for its rightful place. I find myself wanting a touch of lightness in my dress yet with the security of layering up whilst the weather struggles to find its season.
So a light fabric base of a dress or skirt with warmer additions is ideal for an out-out right now. And here are three of the umpteen warmer additions.
1. With a Biker (Moto) Jacket
Here's what I wore recently for a dinner out with friends on a night when the weather had most definitely found its autumn - cold, rainy and very blustery. Brrr. So that took me to a tried and tested go-to of pretty skirt, woolly jumper, boots and a biker.
I call this combo my edgy granny look.
Easy silk skirt, ca. 2002
I did debate on whether to to a French tuck of my jumper.
But nah, who wants to see my granny's tum protrusion at dinner eh?!
And to prove the "tried and tested" point, I was wearing something very similar in 2016 in a-spring-in-my-step. HERE
The tried and tested look is seen here, back in February 2016.

2. With a Blazer
3. With a Cardi
It's surprising what can be added to a thin dress or skirt to make it wearable in the chillier months, yet keeping the look stylish rather than bundled up. Just adding a woolly or jacket, a belt, some warm boots can instantly make light florals wearable right now, whilst still keeping some sense of stylishness.
Is this the sort of transitional look you wear for a date night or dinner with friends in Autumn?
A la perchoine,
