Hunkydory Fall/Winter

As soon as August draws to an end my sartorial thoughts turn to the autumn/winter collections. The summer sales have never held much appeal for me, especially as my summer dresses and denim shorts spend about 50 weeks of the year in a box under my bed! A good piece of knitwear on the other hand is likely to see numerous outings between September and April (and sometimes even May!). And when it comes to cosy and cute sweaters nobody does it better than Swedish fashion brand Hunkydory. This season’s collection is not just about the knitwear though, as layering is the name of the game with unstructured coats and soft jersey T-shirts in muted tones creating a cool, laidback vibe. ‘Effortless elegance’ is how the brand sums up its F/W collection and I couldn’t agree more.

Life Lately

Our two-week summer holiday in Sweden  has all but faded to a distant memory but luckily we managed to fit in a bit of beach time before school started last week. We spent two consecutive Saturdays at the Witterings (both east and west) and rounded off August with a three-night break at a house on the beach, near Rye in Sussex.

East Wittering 1

{East Wittering Beach – the weather wasn’t great but we spent the day with friends and had a lovely time playing on the beach}

West Wittering

{Having not been spoiled with sunny weather this year, on the hottest day of the summer we packed up the car and headed down to West Wittering in Sussex at 8am. A full day of swimming, building sand castles and soaking up the rays.}

V Festival

{Cameron and I went to the V Festival in Chelmsford to see Ella Henderson, George Ezra, and Ellie Goulding among others. A great experience despite the weather and toilet facilities!}

Bank Holiday

{We ended this year’s summer holidays with an impromptu weekend away at Petts Level in Sussex where we rented a lovely house right on the beach.}

Now we’re hurtling headfirst into autumn, my favourite season of them all. Bring on the falling leaves, cosy scarves and bobble hats, mugs of steaming cocoa, and crackling log fires!
