Lots Of Neutrals & Yummy Raspberries

This is what I wore to escort my little girl to school on her very first day yesterday. I chose neutrals all over because they felt very autumnal but the pieces were summery enough to get through the day with so many different temperature levels.

The morning was obviously too cold for sandals so I put on my tan leather boots (no tights, only knee-high socks for me, thank you very much). Once it got warmer I quickly changed my footwear and felt very comfortable in my soft leather sandals.

Because of all the neutrals I chose too wear a plethora of accessories again. I put together my favourite brooches and was really happy with the result. A big bright corsage completed the look!

I wore my favourite earrings again after quite some time - they're yummy raspberries from a very talented American jewellery designer Michael Michaud. I mail-ordered them from the London National Gallery shop several years ago. It was love at first sight! They're so precious! I almost lost one last winter because it got tangled in a scarf - that's the reason I haven't worn them for a while, I've been absolutely terrified of losing them.

Today's outfit:

sandals - Leonora Passaro
skirt - local shop with really cheap things; used to be a peasant-style dress but I cut the puffed short sleeves off; the dress cost five euros altogether
top - Broadway (old!)
jacket - Tom Tailor
belt - H&M
scarf - Sisley
bag - Zara
cameo brooch - gift from husband for the birth of our boy (nine years ago)
thistle brooch - Scottish shop in the capital
angel brooch - gift from husband & children (I added the fuchsia blossoms)
corsage - Accessorize

Enjoy the last days of summer!
