The First of Autumn 2015

STRADIVARIUS top (similar, in the sale), cigarette pants (similar) and long waistcoat, 
MANGO bag (similar), ADIDAS STAN SMITH, COS necklace (similar)

Surely not a winter outfit, surprisingly the weather in Manchester this autumn is definitely giving us opportunity to still put together something similar to this, so there is still time to enjoy the last of those lighter-weight fabrics before entering Layering Master Class season.

Colour blocking is straight-forward in a colour as understated as khaki, with the added bonus that it's subdued enough to be interesting without turning heads. The key detail in these trousers, that so-called paper bag waist, gives it a little extra with definite echoes from Tibi this NYFW. Cliché as it undoubtedly is, it's hard to resist bringing out those fall (read: autumn) colours at this time of year: khaki, rich brown, burgundy... With the landscape changing around me plus a new university module entitled Chinese Ecoliterature - the relationship of nature within literature - it was inevitable I might match the autumn leaves this term.

These shots were taken while I was still in Shanghai (sob sob), notice that eery light that comes off a particularly smoggy day. I'm preparing some China-centric travel posts, which will be aimed at each specific area I visited, including a few tips and lots of images. I hope you will enjoy.
