We haven't had much of a Summer this year, it seems wrong to wish it away, but I'm feeling the pull of Autumn as we reach the last week of August.
First there was the September issue of Vogue.
Then the first of the Toast Autumn catalogues.
A knee length cord skirt, silk long sleeved top, thick tights.
I started to think about a mustard scarf, a new leather bag, jumper dresses and navy blue moccasins.
I'll embrace Summer while it lasts, will gladly take any fleeting opportunity for bare arms or legs, for sandals, for painted toenails. I'll sit outside for as long as I can, I'll drink in the long days and hope for an Indian Summer with bright, warm September days but Autumn is reeling me in and I'm powerless to resist.
