Of course now that Autumn is making its mark with blankets of fiery leaves, it is completely within reason putting leaves against your face in an evolved pirate behaviour.

While rummaging through the winter wardrobes at home, filling bags of donations for the foodbank, I found this vintage fur trim blazer. It was a gift from an elderly family friend years ago.

Earlier this year when I found these shoes, it seemed inevitable that my enthusiasm for them would ware off. Still though, the love affair seems to be going strong and now that the leaves have fallen, they seem even more appropriate.
