Summer is over, but it's not quite autumn yet...
The sun is shining but there is a chill in the air, especially in the morning and in the evening. It's too cold for bare legs, but not cold enough for tights and dresses...
Fortunately, I have a fool-proof, easy-peasy formula for transitional dressing: light-weight trousers, a t-shirt / sweater with 3/4 length or long sleeves and a wool wrap.

It can be a bit challenging to find trousers that fit, though...
The problem is not so much that I have hips, but that my waist is significantly smaller (about 30 cm) than my hips. So, even if I manage to find trousers that can accommodate my hips, then the waist needs to be taken in, which means that I'd have to have the whole garment taken apart, totally restructured and put together again by a tailor... way too complicated for my liking.
But, lucky for me, Marks & Spencer understand that women have curves, and that some of us do not have long, lean legs. So, their trousers come in three lengths, and I seem to be just the match for the 'regular'...

I like my trousers simple, plain and neutral.
This poncho adds just enough drama to a simple outfit.
What's your transitional dressing strategy?
