Winter's coming

What with it being such a miserable blustery day - one of many so far this month - I'm now getting excited for winter.

It's not that I dislike the summer months, I love seeing the sun and feeling it on my face, like any living creature does, but I love the change, I love it when the seasons switch.

It all started in the fashion cupboard at Fabulous.  Getting in the AW collections for the big AW shoot (in Fabulous either this Sunday or next....!) was so exciting and a lot of high street retailers have done a great job this season.

Warehouse has a beautiful leopard print coat, and a romantic white blouse that I've got my eye on.
Oasis has gone for gothic glamour with long-sleeved maxi dresses, velvet and black lace.
River Island has got a great selection of cosy knits and party pieces, while Next has got some fabulous ribbed leggings and tunics.

I've already bought some aviator-style leggings and a brown ruched skirt (above) from River Island and a cosy collared and pocketed cardie from Gap.  


Here's the run-down of my high street Autumn/Winter faves:
