Turning the dial round one notch

On Sunday, I put a cardigan on under the linen jacket that I’ve been wearing all summer. Yesterday I swapped my Birkenstocks for ‘proper’ shoes before I left the house.  Today I put an extra layer on top of my outfit.  Three days in a row, therefore it’s official: we’re moving towards autumn and it’s time to turn the wardrobe dial around one notch.

I have to say that I’m excited.  My new (well second-hand but new to me) houndstooth check coat is hanging expectantly on the outside of my wardrobe.  Inside the doors, the clothes are begging for a re-jig, with the woollens moving to centre stage and the linens to the side, the open toed sandals giving way to boots. 

It may not be full-on gloves and scarves weather for some months yet, but it’s definitely getting cool enough for a nice cardigan.  And that makes me very happy indeed.
