Lost in transition

Having just returned to the UK after leaving this country in the midst of a heatwave, experienced both oppressive heat and humidity coupled with a typhoon in Japan, arriving back to rain, rain and cold, mixed in with some sunshine, I can safely say that the idea of being in season transition is ringing true.

And that's why I'm finding my eye being caught by open-toe sandals and knitwear in the same glance. Here are a few purchases of late. I had vowed to avoid Zara as much as possible, after a bit of a shocker with their customer service department, but a glimpse at their Autumn/Winter lookbook had me falling for a couple of items. And I hit the last of the sales too, to unearth a few bargains.

{navy blue leather leopard print flats, £39.99 Zara}

I've hardly had these shoes off my feet - they go with everything, and are perfect with jeans (minus tights) whilst the weather is just warm enough. I bought the neon clutch as a present for a friend - couldn't resist its neon-ness.

{stones and flower necklace, £29.99 Zara}

I spied this necklace in the window of the Zara in Fukuoka in Japan, and worked out after a painful conversation using my nonexistent Japanese that they were out of stock. So I ordered it on the UK website whilst I was still on holiday and it was waiting for me when I got home.

{crepe textured tunic, £34 Topshop}

The Topshop tunic top was my holiday flying outfit, along with a pair of slim-leg navy trousers and ballet pumps. And yes, the next photos is yet another statement necklace. Somebody help me.

{tartan-ish check drawstring joggers, from the H&M Conscious range}

The trousers are one of the most comfortable things I've ever worn, and I'm sticking with them, despite the Prince of Bel Air references from Popeye. I can't find them on the H&M website but they are still available in store.
