It's not often that I actually buy something from my lust lists but the aran knit cardigan drew me in, heart and soul! It looks great thrown over anything. This day started off a little chilly, hence the chunky knit, but as the day went on, it started getting hotter and off came the layers and on came the hat and sunnies. I'm on the lookout for a navy blue and a light beige chunky knit cardigan now. I can't get enough.

Halloween is coming up soon! I'm actually excited this year. I hope my costume turns out as well as I hope it will. Same with my make up. Is anyone else planning to dress up?

I've been doing Bikram yoga this past week. In the first session I nearly blacked out from the heat but my body has felt so good (and a bit sweaty) after each session.

It is shameful for me to post when I still haven't caught up with comments for my last post. Please forgive me and please forgive the weird blue-ish tint in these photos which make my green dress appear teal. It's the dress which I recently posted about. I think it's charming in a sort of "country" way. I'll be very sad when winter comes upon us and my boater hat will look quite out of place.

Who has tips on how to get skinny legs? I did 10 minute exercises for five days and gave up.

High street lust #57.

If the grey tweed faux fur collar coat (£80) is anything to go by, then I have bought my winter coat too soon! I love the hourglass shape and the ladylike styling. Most of all, I like the fur collar! This coat screams elegance.

If I could, I'd make my work wardrobe very prim and proper and I can achieve that with the help of Miss Selfridge! First, the guncheck skirt (£32) with its nipped in waist and then a sweet shirt like the cream lace victoriana blouse (£35) or the bow trim detail top (£32). Black chevron knitted tights (£8) and nude frilly ballerina pumps (£25) keep the look demure and the faux croc x body bag (£25) lends a vintage touch. Finally, pick a set of earrings from the flower studs multipack (£8), add a charm bracelet (£12) and a heart ring (£12) and off I go to clock in.

I apologise that my lust lists are most often in neutral colours, but that's the palette my heart yearns after!
