It’s autumn: sunset is getting earlier every day, and the evenings are getting cooler. It’s time to bring out my favourite early autumn cover-up: the wool poncho.
It’s an easy piece to add when you need something a bit warmer, and it goes with anything. Or at least I wear it with anything…
By the way, I have 5 of these ponchos, in several colours… But this burgundy one is my favourite. Why? Because it goes with anything…
As for my autumn wardrobe… It’s way too early to even think about that. Oh no, I’ll be hanging on to my summer clothes for a while still. As long as possible. Because I’ll have months of wearing nothing but parkas and cashmere ahead of me, and I’m in no hurry to start.
Yes, autumn is my favourite season, and yes, I do like my autumn clothes. But as soon as I start wearing them, it’s as if I’m admitting that summer is really over, and then it will be forever before I see my summer clothes again… Does that make sense? No? Never mind. I’m hanging on to summer, and (the majority of) my summer wardrobe, until night temperatures drop to zero and Mother Nature forces me to face the prospect of the the long, dark Nordic winter. I think I have a few weeks to go, still…
