Can you tell I'm happy it's Autumn? It is so my favourite time of year. A couple of months of many fun things, starting today really with Halloween. I celebrated by going to a party on Saturday, my costume was not really scary, I was Kiki from the film Kiki's delivery service. I was super happy to find a huge red bow belt from H&M which completed mt costume perfectly. There were a lot of good costumes at the party, most comprising much fake blood and also a couple of very good black swans. The outfit above is from Saturday daytime, I always pull this skirt out at this time of year, the dark tapestry style floral just seems to suit the weather. The necklace is a favourite of mine and was a gift from a couple of birthdays ago. I found it in a tiny shop/gallery in Lyme Regis and was lucky enough to receive it as a present a few months later. I love the slightly unusual colour and I like anything with a nature theme. I also just realised that I've had that bag since I was in art college, so about seven (gulp!) years ago. Still at least it's lasted. Tonight we are just going to watch my Halloween favourite Hocus Pocus. Happy Halloween everyone!


  1. Autumn is such a great time of year! And I love the autumnal palette of this outfit, with the purples and the green of that lovely necklace. Kiki is a great costume too!
