Yes. It’s that time of year again …and I don’t mean Christmas. I’m talking about the run up to a brand new year. That magical time when I’m suddenly hit by motivation to get everything back in its place and looking its best. With 2015 lurking just around the corner (seriously, it will be here before we know it), I started to vacuum pack most of my clothes away for the impending winter months and then it struck me like a bolt from the blue. Every single year I package away my so-called summer wardrobe, cast each item out for another year because of the colour/fabric/pattern or simply because I bought it in summer. I absolutely adore Joules, so why not wear these pieces all-year-round and what a waste of money and good clothes! So, I decided…
Life is just too short for vacuum packing.
This mightn’t look like an outfit made up from summer clothes, but they’re there. See.
Mustard. It’s definitely my favourite colour to wear. So summery, yet so autumnal. This sheer Joules number could certainly be whipped away for another year, but rejigged with some traditional winter fabrics and prints it’s a fitting pal for brogues and grey felt. Not forgetting this beloved YMC Liberty floral backpack. I’ve been dying to share this. I got it on eBay for a total steal. It cost around £20. I know! I intended to take it travelling with me over summer but it just wouldn’t fit in my hand luggage. Since this outfit, I intend to be more creative with my layering. Watch this space!

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted on the blog, did you miss me? I must admit, it’s been an unintentional break. Since my birthday, I’ve enjoyed a week in Warsaw (of which I need to tell you all about), family meals out (thirty seems to be a big deal) and of course, I’ve been incredibly busy at work. It’s been good to have a little break, but I’ve not half missed blogging!
