First step to a transitional wardrobe

These photos were taken a few weekends ago.  A load of us decended on a lovely pub, The Water Poet, in Shoreditch.  It rained hard all day and then the sun decided to make an appearance.  Anyway, I realised that although I live in London, I rarely take shots when i'm 'out-and-about' in London, normally because I leave my camera at home because i'm drinking and can't be trusted.  Anyway, i've digressed at usual. 

Did you have a good bank hol English readers?  I had a fab time at Notting Hill carnival, although I have to say that I did miss Norman Jay's Good Times bus, there was a noticeable gap!

Just a quick one on the outfit.  As the weather becomes more and more unpredictable as we enter autumn, it's all about adapting your wardrobe and making it transitional.  But without spending a fortune!  This is my beloved maxi that I wore on every chance I could this summer because it's so comfy.  It's not the most practical dress for autumn (any other ladies fancy going braless at 5 degrees?  Thought not) however, the colour is perfect for autumn.  So, add a quick denim shirt, and hey presto, the dress acts as a skirt, and no-one has to know about the bra keeping everything in place under the shirt! Dreamy.

The breakdown
Dress: New Look, £24.99
Shirt: H&M, £14.99
Scarf (tied to bag): Warehouse, present

And a little pic of the grumpy Bot - see what I have to put up with?
