HYGGE-ING UP FOR AUTUMN WITH THE THINGS I’M LUSTING AFTER!

I have to admit to loving autumn.  I even know that 22nd September is the Autumn Equinox!  This is the official start of autumn when the sun passes directly over the Earth’s equator and creates a day and night that are the same length.

 

With autumn come the longer nights and shorter days that will eventually lead us in to winter time.  What makes autumn special to me is the beautiful colours that mother nature gives us as leaves turn red and brown and fall from the trees.  There is something so pretty and magical seeing leaves assembling on the ground and walking through them – this is fun at any age!

 

The air is so crisp and refreshing that I get an intense feeling of wanting to be snug.  So out comes those woolly jumpers, scarves, gloves and slipper socks – perfect!

 

I wanted to put together my favourite things to celebrate the Autumn Equinox.  But who am I kidding?  I wanted to be overly indulgent and share what I would love!

 

These four items are just perfect for lounging about the house when the air outside is crisp and cold.  I have opted for the most luxiourious pair of silk pyjamas from FigLeaves which anyone would be delighted to wear.  I’ve teamed this up with a pair of adorable slippers from The House of Slippers.  They look so comfy I wouldn’t want to take them off!  Teamed up with a stunningly soft velour hooded robe from The White Company London.  I’d probably want to go to the shops in this little lot!  To ensure your feet are kept warm in bed these beautiful socks from EarthKindOriginals would be ideal.

 

So what do you think?  What are your favourite items to keep you snug and warm as autumn and winter approaches?

Hello Autumn, Hello Woollie Jumpers, Hello Slipper Socks!

So today, 22nd September 2016 is the Autumn Equinox.  This is the official start of autumn when the sun passes directly over the Earth’s equator and creates a day and night that are the same length.

 

With autumn come the longer nights and shorter days that will eventually lead us in to winter time.  I personally love autumn, I love the colours that mother nature gives us as leaves turn brown and fall from the trees.  There is something so pretty and magical seeing leaves assembling on the ground and walking through them – this is fun at any age!

 

The air is so crisp and refreshing that I get an intense feeling of wanting to be snug.  So out comes those woolly jumpers, scarves, gloves and slipper socks – perfect!

 

To celebrate the Autumn Equinox I have pulled together my favourite vintage autumn jewellery finds to share with you.  Let me know what you think.  All items are now in my Etsy shop here.  So if you would like some autumn inspired vintage jewellery that is unique head on over.

 

Happy autumn.

My Favourite Vintage Jewellery to add some Sparkle to Autumn

While it may not officially be autumn, there is certainly a nip in the air.  So when the weather starts to bite I start contemplating taking the jumpers out of storage but I also think of how I can switch things up a bit so go and check out my jewellery, well the jewellery that I have decided to keep for myself.

Are you like me?  I tend to get bored of the same old jumpers and cardigans but I never seem to tire of sparkly jewellery!

Here are some of my favourite pieces of vintage jewellery to tempt you.  They will certainly add some vintage glamour to your autumn outfits.

 

Vintage necklace

This is a stunning one of a kind necklace is made from a vintage 1950s brooch. Re-purposing vintage brooches is just one way of reusing brooches if you don’t normally wear them.

I just adore sparkle.  Period is 1950s and this is a stunning crystal style necklace with mother of pearl. Who wouldn’t love to wear this?  Sparkle, sparkle and more sparkle!

Vintage necklace

Wow, wow and wow again!  Another sparkly number only in gold colour.   I absolutely adore this one and found it very hard to put it up for sale after re-purposing vintage beads to add a bit more colour to the necklace.

Sometimes less is more.  From the 1950s this is a stunning mirrored bead necklace. It is absolutely lovely on.  How amazing does this look?  I constantly admire this piece so maybe it will make its way in to my collection instead of my Etsy shop!

 

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my favourite pieces of vintage jewellery.  These vintage pieces will certainly complete any outfit and let’s face it a girl can never have too much jewellery.
