Next season

The other night I was casting my mind forward into Autumn/Winter.   I know, the sun is still beating down on us here; my tan (freckles melding into each other to form a somewhat brownish layer) is only starting to now come good; and the 2nd pair of summer sandals that I bought at sale time haven't yet been taken out of the cupboard... but nonetheless, I started thinking about updating the wardrobe with some key pieces for the next season.  (In my defence, the seasons around here tend to sneak up on you when you least expect it!)

And wouldn't you know it, just as I hit enter on the keyboard, there it was - the early answer to Autumn/Winter - by Country Road.   Oh, CR what are you doing to me.  I only just spent a small fortune during the summer sale in 3 of your stores, and now you're teasing me with a new range of beautifully styled, subtle coloured chic pieces for my wardrobe, my kitchen and my mini me!  What's a girl to do!  (I knew they'd be onto Autumn about now - happens every year around the same time!)

As I was saving pieces onto my desktop (for further investigation!), a bootie here, a parka there, a pair of jeans for hubby, some t-shirts for the little one, more bistro mugs and tea-towels... I wondered when the catalogue would grace my mailbox.  Like a sign from above, there it was rolled up in my mailbox this morning.  Call it what you will, Destiny, Fate, or Synchronicity... I call it - a home full of Country Road stuff.

Here are just some of the pieces that caught my eye this time around (because there is always something that I can't resist!) -

I like everything graphic lately, so I will take the black and white top and polka dot ballet flats and all the kitchenware too. :)

These are just the kind of prints I like and the trench would be perfect for spring as it's sure to be rainy in the UK!

I was fate, Helen! A girl can never refuse herself a beautiful item, right? I like the blue printed shirt, the black and white blouse, the handbag and the kitchen beauties!
