Summer to fall

Summer to fall


Seldom do I favour Americanism’s over our own twee selection, particularly when my auto-correct is forever prompting me that favourite is in fact spelt wrong and I need to omit the u; but when it concerns my favourite season ‘Autumn’, Summer to Fall seems to roll off the tongue much more pertinently than Summer to Autumn. One of my favourite quotes from F. Scott Fitzgerald reminds me of my fondness for ‘Fall’-

‘Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall’.

It amazes me how quickly the temperature drops, after a scorching end of September we awake needing to reshuffle our wardrobes, pull out the blankets, stock up on hot drinks and pop on the cosy slippers. Now I am certainly not complaining at justified hibernation, but it does mean that when I wore my Yumi dress to my brother’s christening, despite it being just two weeks ago it was practically a Summer scorcher(whereas today I am hiding from the torrential rain). This dress may be a strappy, warm weather piece but is perfect to be layered up with a suede biker jacket, blush tones and some cosy maroon accessories.

After frantic searching on sites like ASOS, Topshop & H&M, I always find myself coming back to House of Fraser for dresses. They have a huge selection and they always have amazing offers and sales on which means I can usually bag a cute bargain whilst satisfying my spending urges! I absolutely adore the print of this Yumi dress and am glad I opted for the deeper navy as it’s perfect for transitioning from the Summer months into Autumn with a few accessories and light layering.
