This means that I can start thinking about fall fashion - and, since I'm counting down the days until my trip to London, I've got my eye on the new seasonal options in a British store called Joules.
There's a Joules branch in Richmond, near the train station, and we'd always pass the store on our way to Jon's aunt and uncle's house out in the 'burbs. Every time we went to visit them, I'd insist on taking an earlier train so that we could stop in to browse. They've got classic lines - including one called joule Britannia and another that is, apparently, the official polo collection - and I always felt perfectly British whenever I wandered the racks. (The sizable selection of adorable wellies was very necessary, too, as I usually underestimated London's rainclouds...)
Autumn is the best time to check out this company if you don't yet know it - something about the need for knits, layers, and wellies just screams England, and Joules has timeless pieces that are ideal for the changeable weather. I love this striped tunic, and the yellow hem is picked up by this bright scarf and matched by the canary strap on this messenger bag. Warm socks are a must, and it's important that they be cute even though they won't be seen inside these classic rainboots.
If you're in the UK, get thee to a Joules to stock up for autumn. They don't yet ship to the States, but you can place your order with me and I'll bring back your picks in September!
