How We do Autumn in Southwold …

Would you believe me if I told you that this was Southwold yesterday ? Blue skies, sunshine and all the colour that you could wish for. All in one place. On a late October afternoon. Stuff dreams are made of ..

It’s the time of year when we get the promenade pretty much to ourselves and we can wander around the town still enjoying the warm ( ish ) days while sharing fish and chips and checking out some of the interior shops. Squeezing in at least one trip here a week is always on my agenda, sometimes I pop over after school with the girls.

I’m starting out this season as I mean to go on – with more bright clothing. Considering how much I talk about strong colours and pastels here on my blog – you’d think all my clothes would be crazy bold but that hasn’t been the case recently. I’m putting that right though now and it feels much more ‘ me ‘ again.

You might already know how much I love teal. It’s a really flattering colour, I think, on most people. This Jennie coat is a new staple favourite. It’s from Boden ( my whole outfit is here ) and it’s versatile being perfect for Autumn and the right shape to pop an extra layer under for winter. Kind of classic isn’t it ?

One type of item that I wear all the time is a tunic. If it has a little stretch, then all the better. I like to layer them over skinny jeans. It’s just a nice relaxed look isn’t it ? This breton stripe kind of suits Southwold. Nautical ! Talking of jeans – what did we ever do without the skinny style ? I can totally recommend these ‘ Mayfair ‘ ones as they stay fitted.

So you may wonder why I have a picture of the lighthouse here ? Well, we walked from the promenade up to Cafe Fifty One for a milkshake ( check out their cool pumpkins display – and do visit  – it’s really good ) and passed it on the way to the pier and I just thought how quirky Southwold is for having a lighthouse right in the middle of town. Kind of suits the place, really.

Right under my feet here is the sea. But in all honestly I was admiring my new pumps and bag on this occasion. The shoes are called Patti and I love the contrast of black and navy. Do you like them too ? I have needed a drawstring bag big enough for my camera and everything else I need for the day ( kitchen sink, anyone ? ) and am very into the Beatnik Red. I honestly didn’t intend to coordinate with my surroundings but it worked out pretty well :)

Before heading home  I stopped off at the local flower store to grab a bundle of sunflowers for the kitchen table.

Long may these blue sky days last …

I’d love to know your thoughts on my outfit ? Are you a fan of brights too ? Do leave me a comment under the post or tweet me @lucylovesyablog ..

How fabulous that Boden coat looks on you. It’s so lovely to see some bright colours as most clothing is so dull at the moment. It really cheers you up!
The bag gives a lovely cheerful extra pop to the outfit. Love it!

I LOVE the colour of your outfit, the blue coat and your red handbag look so good together. I sometimes prefer going to the beach in the colder months. Wrapping up warm and eating warm chips…..perfect!
