I love the changing seasons and the new fashions that they bring.

It's mid-October and we are truly into Autumn now.

The weather's been mild and recently I was distracted by Paris Fashion Week and the Spring/Summer 2018 collections.  I did love the water inspired theme at CHANEL.  Against a background of waterfalls and trees, Karl Lagerfeld presented some really pretty Spring/Summer clothes, protected from the wet environment by hats, little capes and thigh high boots, all made of transparent plastic.  Glass and pearl jewellery, especially those waterdrop earrings, completed the beautiful, glistening effect.

The LOUIS VUITTON collection was my other favourite.  A seventeenth-century dungeon was the setting for a surprising theme that teamed modern streetwear (nylon boxer shorts and sneakers) with eighteenth-century style men's brocade jackets.  I thought it worked very well!

Now it's back to Autumn and I did manage to do a thorough wardrobe edit.  I've begun to think about some new season's pieces and added a few basic updates:

  • a black short jumper in a fine-knit viscose blend with ribbed neckline, cuffs and hem, from H&M's Divided range

Black Fine-Knit Jumper from H&M

  • a sheer black sleeveless shirt in a polyester fabric, with a collar, buttons down the front and a yoke with a pleat at the back, also from H&M's Divided range

Black Sheer Sleeveless Shirt from H&M
Sleeveless Shirt - Back

  • a new box-fresh pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Low Black Mono Canvas trainers, from Office Shoes, so perfectly vintage and classic

Black Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars

  • for Autumn sunlight - aviator style sunglasses with metal frames and uv-protective tinted rose gold lenses, from H&M.

H&M Aviator Style Sunglasses

What's next on the list? I'm thinking dark floral and some new boots - maybe trendy sock boots/kitten heels/black suede or satin?
