I did it: I bought into the duster coat trend. Fluid, unstructured and so effortlessly me, I bought this in a completely heady, jet lagged state last week and I haven't really taken it off much since. Sorry, I'm not sorry. It's just got to be done when you find The One in the sartorial stakes. It's also a little heavier than most dusters I'd spotted - Topshop, I'm looking at you - and frankly I am frozen now that I'm back on home turf.

So! Transitional dressing is well and truly upon us. I desperately wish it was sweater weather but the other day I pulled a rollneck number on and was hotter than the sun by the time lunchtime dawned on me. No outfit photos from that particular escapade I'm afraid...(!) I wore this transitional ensemble to work and it's just right for office vs. Great Outdoors use. The peplum top has an awesome boxy fit up top with a chiffon hem - ideal for a smidgen of skin whilst still being appropriate. I also dug out my vintage CHANEL jeans then slung on my metallic pointed toe flats from F&F for a slick edge. Easily one of my favourite fuss-free autumn looks.

Life lately has been super odd. The autumn for me forever marks a shift in mood and attitude, and thus far, autumn 2014 has thrown plenty of curveballs at me. I'm about 85% decided on something really really huge but as with all annoying blog posts like these, you'll have to wait until I can say more. (XOXO, Gossip Girl.)

  2. I get cold really easily so I'm already in sweater weather! I also really want to try a duster coat but feel like everything drowns me, as I'm only 5ft3. Plus I'm trying to lose weight and want to only buy clothes when I'm smaller, sigh! Can't wait for the exciting news!

  5. I can totally relate regarding the weather dilemma. When I start commuting at 7:30am it's sooo cold but when it comes to midday it gets pretty warm!! So then comes the question to coat it or not coat it. Hashtag:firstworldproblems.

    Looking forward to your (potentially good?) huge news Michelle!

  11. I love the duster on you, Michelle - it looks so elegant and effortless! Transitional weather is so hard to dress for - especially when the September weather can't make its mind up! Can't wait to hear your news...very enigmatic! xx
