Dressing for air conditioning...

It's that time of year when some seriously nice knits hit the shops. And I think this is one of them.

From Topshop, it's part slouchy, part dressy, care of the embellished Peter Pan collar and is the perfect Autumn jumper - light enough to stop you feeling suffocated and yet warm enough to insulate you against chilly air. It is described as a grey "sweat" top on the site and that's the right description. It feels so comfortable to wear but I think looks quite pretty too.

I got this when I was in the UK, wore it three times in one week. Now I wear it when exposed to severe air-conditioning in an attempt to "cosy".

I absolutely love the collar detail, it's intricate and has a touch of quality about it. I think that Topshop knitwear can sometimes be a big miss but this actually washes well - collar and all - but lets see how long it takes before the Bobble Factor takes over.




I harbour ambitions of wearing this with denim cut offs and boots...watch this space :)

Jumper: Topshop - Link!

I really love this time of year. Wardrobe wise I always find there is a frisson of excitement in buying a winter coat and cosy jumpers. I think it reminds me of that whole "Back to School" shopping extravaganza that I used to partake in.

Now however I am both old and living in the wrong climate. Still that doesn't stop me window shopping and some current Autumn/Winter items that have caught my eye are below...this is pure fantasy shopping...

Mmmm....well to be honest I have strong feelings towards the ASOS heart peplum dress, skull necklace, Topshop trousers and for whatever reason, that Garcon jumper! :)

Outerwear (L-R)

Dresses (L-R)
ASOS heart peplum dress, ASOS Dahlia dress, ASOS Darling dress

Knits and bits...(top to bottom, sort of!)
Topshop Garcon jumper, Warby Parker frames, Skull necklace, Topshop floral trousers, Philip Lim boots, Christian Louboutin heels (these are called Love Me and I certainly do :) and my beloved Revlon Cherries in the Snow! :)

PS.

I went shopping last night. It was a one hour speed shop at Mall of the Emirates and I did so
well!

I can't wait to show you some work-related dresses that I picked up in Debenhams (I am wearing them all next week for an industry event and in an attempt to get enthusiastic about endless networking I incentivised myself by buying new clothes :) and some other bits in American Eagle. Beauty wise I focussed on my hair and got two new items I am excited to try.

I have run out of shampoo and conditioner and so thought it was now time to try the famed Sacha Juan line.



They are a Swedish brand with a clean design aesthetic to match their roots. Their packaging is so neat...I find that oddly inspiring.

I have high hopes for these! I am expecting moisture rich happy hair in a matter of washes! Something akin to a miracle then :) If it happens I will definitely let you know :)

What wardrobe must-haves do you have your eye on this coming season?

  34. Love the jumper. I have such a love hate relationship with jumpers. I fell huge in jumpers but love, like you, the cosiness of jumpers. I think it is said to buy jumpers a size to big for you...is this true?...if so maybe that is where I am going wrong.

    1. Air Conditioning providing accurate temperature control,
      and it reduce the humidity within your home to eliminate the 'stickiness' .
      Most systems have a dedicated 'dry' mode,
      where humidity can be reduced without over-cooling the room.
