I've loved fashion this autumn/winter, I've loved the fact that every body's had to pile on the layers before they exit their front doors and enter the cold weather that's been ferociously biting at our cheeks and giving us frostbite in the tips of our fingers and in our toes. Who can't have adored the chunky knits and jumpers that allow comfortable clothing to be stylish and not something that we just want to keep behind closed doors. The hats scarves and gloves that have been needed all season, the dark and deep plums and reds that have been littering the high street shops like the autumn leaves that have been oh so beautiful on the trees. Unfortunately I haven't seen snow in my area yet, and will be waiting into the middle of spring for it to coat the ground like icing sugar, making cities built entirely out of concrete look wondrous and magnificent before it slowly fades away. Although this time of year has been so beautiful, it is already transitioning into spring/summer. There is much in store for the high street shops, bright colours, quirky floral prints and countless numbers of crop tops are edging their way into the shops. I can't wait for the weather to get warmer, and I can't wait for the sun and the ice cream vans rushing around the feed the ravenous children suffering from the heat. I can't wait to be able to wear less layers, and to be able to bask in the sunlight. I know exactly where my money is going to be spent. I almost can't contain my excitement.
