Whenever we move into a season transition (I'm sure no one gets as excited about season transitions as style bloggers do – maybe gardeners?) I start vaguely awaiting my next Lula installment. I bought a subscription before my spending ban, so it feels like a free expensive luxury. Leith Clarks's tweets have been at times so exotic and interesting that I feel like this issue is going to be an extra good one.
In a similar vein, this editorial from Test magazine is so pretty that I can't stop going back to it. It is fairly Lula-esque, and is satisfying my anticipation. Technically it's a spring editorial, but I think that a) much as everyone seems to be tired of sunshine, it is still summer, and b) spring editorials are just early autumn editorials in disguise. This one is styled by Lyson Marchessault, who does admittedly style a lot of Lula editorials (including that amazing Erdem one) and photographed by Nicholas Lawn.
My favourite style is in the top picture. I love the kind of cricketing blazer with the translucent seersucker skirt. It's a look that could be easily translated to autumn's camel blazers and mid-length skirts, in a heavier cotton. I really like the model's 20s hair too – I'm always trying to twist and curl my hair into styles like that, but it's just too stubbornly straight. My sister has fantastic curls that would suit the style perfectly, and which I'm pretty jealous of!
My charity shopping trip today yielded a few good things for Autumn – probably to be sold on eBay again though, as a lot of it is verging on '90s (good '90s though of course!) and having pieces up on two different sites at the same time is too confusing for me! A lot of it is too small for me, which really is just as well, as it removes the temptation to keep them. I'll let you know when they're up.
