Jigsaw to the A/W rescue

The Thursday before I left to go on holiday marked a sad day for me... it was the day I finally admitted that Autumn was here to stay. I had my denim shorts laid out all ready to wear, and then when I woke up the rain was hitting the window so hard that I thought I was being attacked by a hundred children with peashooters (yes, I live in the Beano). Thankfully, Jigsaw have got A/W transitional dressing covered, not least in the form of this polka dot dream, so I quickly swapped out my shorts for jeans and I was ready to go-go. I really liked it on the website, but I love it even more in real life – it’s incredibly soft and hangs in the way that no shirt has hung before (maybe we should get a room?) and, perhaps best of all, it really reminds me of the kind of thing the Chung would throw on and look incredibly cool in. I think it'll be a great layering piece for colder days, but for the moment I've chosen to wear it on its own in the hope that a last glimmer of sun will appear. To keep with the Autumnal theme I paired the outfit with some suede ankle boots and finished it off with a little leopard ponkysin belt, because for some unknown reason I feel like A/W and leopard print really go hand in hand. Maybe because leopard looks so good with plum, black, and the usual array of colours in Winterwear's palette? One of life’s great mysteries.

Despite the initial depressing tone of the post, I'm secretly a little bit excited for the cold days coming in – hot chocolate, layering, the return of Cheryl Cole on my tv.. Winter brings so many great things with it that it'd be rude to knock it completely. Jigsaw have also got an amazing blue fur coat hitting the site just in time for Winter, so make sure and keep an eye out for that because it is an. absolute. BEAUTY.*
