Friday faves

This week has finally felt like Autumn, hasn’t it? We’ve had such lovely walks with Otto crunching leaves underfoot and being able to see our breath. Boots and coat are firmly out and in use! I love this time of year and how snuggly it feels (and I don’t feel like such a loser spending Saturday nights on the sofa).

I have started to make a few changes to the flat to prepare for the colder weather and there have been a few new additions to my wardrobe too. Here’s a taster…

I’ve been to a couple of lovely events recently, the first being the Livingetc house tours. Whilst on the tour I caught sight of the best log pile ever as well as gorgeous baskets from The Basket Room and so I have followed in their lead and started filling my baskets with extra blankets and throws. It may also be time for some fairy light action and aren’t these marshmallow coloured Cable & Cotton lights perfect for this time of year?

I was also invited to a beautiful celebratory lunch for The Linen Works’ ten year anniversary and I promptly came home and changed our summer duvet to the winter one and popped on our linen duvet cover ready for cosying into bed that evening. Heaven! I’m in love with The Linen Works’ cassis rose linen duvet cover.

I’m currently looking for book recommendations if anyone has any for me but for the time being have you all pre-ordered your copy of 91 magazine? I’ve contributed to the A/W 2016 issue so I’m very excited to see it in print. Other than reading there has been lots of cooking going on here and I love the transition from summer to autumn food: the Le Creuset is well and truly out in action!

And lastly a couple of new additions to my wardrobe for the colder months include this indigo denim dress from Toast and Jules very sweetly bought me this gorgeous kimono style dressing gown from Verry Kerry – it is truly beautiful and perfect to cover up for colder mornings.

Hope you have all had a good week and enjoy the weekend!

    Lovely faves! That bed linen! I just bought some dusty pink covers for our new bed, but now wishing I’d seen that first, looks even nicer!
    Thanks for the mention of the mag! X x

    Loving the lights. I have a strand of about 30 and have put them in a bell jar/terrarium as use it as a side light in my lounge. At Christmas they come out of the jar and are strung along the mantelpiece with greenery, baubles and wooden stars.

    I have a total linen crush too at the moment, can’t get enough of it! I agree also that it may be time for fairy lights… 🙂

    Just getting to read this one chilly morn with my breakfast… you have made me want to snuggle under the prettiest colour duvet, and have a cosy day with my knitting!
