Apologies for the tiny pictures but these are the latest two additions to my winter wardrobe – a grey cable knit dress and a berry scarf cardigan both from Next. They’re warm and toasty and are going to be the mainstay of my autumn and winter clothes collection, especially in wet and chilly Northern Ireland. It’s only the beginning of September and it already feels as though winter is just around the corner. I was hoping for an indian summer but I think I might be asking too much as it hasn’t been over about 20 degrees here all year, let alone in September. I’ve definitely got that back-to-school feeling. These can be my new uniform.
