three autumn accessories...

neac a

Well hello there! I have been an absent blogger lately, and I do apologise. I have been struck down with an especially nasty bout of sinusitis and have spent the past week getting over it. I feel – and perhaps even more pertinently, due to the nature of blogging, look – as though I have been punched in the face twice (left and right eye) but I finally seem to be on the mend.

Anyway, as few things are more boring than listening to someone complain about everyday ailments, I'll move on to what we are really here for. These are three accessories I look forward to wearing in the upcoming cooler weather.



I have had them all for at least a few months, waiting for their chance to see the world again; as they are all second hand, I assume they have enjoyed previous lives. I have loved turbans for who knows how long, but only managed to get round to fashioning one out of a scarf once or twice. And then a couple of months ago, I came across this one, in a beautiful shade of copper brown that I love so much. I also noticed today, when photographing it, that I have a pair of elbow length roughed vintage gloves in the same shade…

The fluffy faux fur hat is one of those things that looks better on. I really look forward to wearing it this winter with plenty of pinky-red blusher and, of course, very red lips.

And the green suede clutch – I just love this shade of green! I actually got this little bag over a year ago, but never really felt the need to use it, until now. Isn't it funny how things just have their right time? Although I find bags bags without straps far too impractical for day wear, I know that it will be a great pop of colour for evening. And bright colours, as we all know, are very much the in thing this season. Not that I care about trends, of course, I just know about them. And I am pretty sure I will be enjoying a few of them in the coming months – sometimes the things you like just happen to be in!

And over here I'm excited about sandals, straw hats and no tights! Love that green clutch!

Velvet said...

I hope you get over soon!

Your bag is so beautiful. Its colour is similar to emerald green, one of my favourite shades.

Have a great week, Esme!

Miss Tallulah Porkchop: thanks me too, wish I had shoes to match..!

SexyNinjaMonkey: I have fixed that. Didn't realise it was already there.

*indie_queen*: hehe I know! It feels so odd being in opposite seasons, even after all this time.

Velvet: thanks! Me too, I'm so tired of it. Yep, a lovely vibrant green :)

Hannah: thanks! I need to keep my hair dark for it ;) and not go, say, red..!

I honestly can't wait to see you in that furry hat! I know it's going to look great. I've been wanting a fur (faux) hat for a while but would then need a whole new outfit to go with it. ;] And that green purse! I really love the way you've photographed these, by the way.

Do you miss autumn? Spring time now;)

esme and the lane way said...

Andi B. Goode: hehe thanks :) Yep my furry hat makes me feel like Russian Royalty!

sueper: thanks! I've gone and got sick again, teetering on the brink of flu... I'm so over it!

Fat Aus: Haha they can be tricky. I don't want to look like Naboo! Then again... no, not really. :)

photography studio Toronto: for me in Australia, and everyone else in the Southern hemisphere, it is Autumn right now. It is a bit weird when I look at Northern Hem. blogs, too :)

I can't wait to see how you style these! I agree about the furry hat, very red lips is the way to go, you'll look like a russian princess! The purse is the most delightful shade of green, too.

I'm looking forward to the cooler weather largely because I'll be able to wear winter hats again! Looking forward to seeing how you style the turban. I hope you feel better really soon, sinusitis is no fun.

I'm so jealous of people that can wear turbans... I don't think my hair would allow it, I'd probably end up looking like some kind of exotic mushroom. And I love the looks of the faux-fur one, it's like a comfy Ewok-Marshmallow!
