Berry Picking

(Jacket, belt and trousers: ASOS; Vest top: Dorothy Perkins; Shoes: Topshop; Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs; Watch: Michael Kors; Jewellery: Thomas Sabo)

I take it you've all seen the Kristen ELLE UK cover for September, right? (If you've not, get out there and grab it - the 20% off ASOS card isn't too shabby either) Well this is my best attempt at an homage to that colour, which in turn is an homage to one facet of the coming season. Mists and mellow fruitfulness. Ripe blackberries. Bright colours muted by the morning mists. Rich colours being favoured to bring needed warmth. The ability to smother myself in the ultimate autumnal scent - Blackberry and Bay by Jo Malone - while wrapped in last season's burgundy faux-fur scarf, while drinking sticky sweet red wine. 

PS will try to snap a better shot of these shoes for Instagram - they leave a little to be desired in the practicality stakes (the pointy toe means a larger size is needed and they do tend to flap about when you walk as fast as I do) but patent burgundy/brown snakeskin leather combined with a chunky kitten heel and delicate ankle strap is good enough for me. They also come in cream and black, I think.
