It is only now that I can say it hands-down, feels like autumn. I have difficulties waking up in the morning, it’s that dark, and then when it rains, it feels like it’s going to break my windows. Am I the only one who needs all those extra layers as much for warmth as for keeping me on my feet with this terribly strong wind. The entire city (London) is already decorated for Christmas so it actually feels like it’s a very early winter and I am still in the mood for pastels, no black yet.
When I plan out my outfit, of course all those burgundies and emerald greens are making their way into them, but I am consciously trying to stay away from black. I think it is a very elegant color, but it is also a very safe one and I am planning on keeping your eyes on my outfit at the end of the day:)
So I thought, why not keep myself from going with the flow and stay as far away from black as possible for my autumn outfit choices. Have a look on the tube on any of the morning rides and your eyes will get lazy from how much black, navy and grey you see. Can you imagine yourself not wearing black at all for what’s left of autumn?
Honestly, I have told you before, but one of my favorite activities ever since I moved to London, is people watching. You can get so much fashion inspo from just stopping for 5 minutes and looking around. My favourite spot is Piccadilly Circus, but Oxford Circus is not too bad either. I can almost guarantee you that you’ll get at least one idea for your next outfit.
Now, another place where you can go and get yourself inspired is Harrods, which is where we took these pictures also. If you do need inspiration with an opulent outfit, here is the place to sit in a nice cafe and while you are sipping on your coffee/ tea, watch the people outside.
If you do have another place where you like going to get yourself inspired in London, don’t hesitate to DM me. What do you think about the “no black outfit” challenge. Are you up for it?
