An Outfit for an English Autumn

Hey lovelies,

I hope you're having a gorgeous Friday, 
gearing up for the weekend. 

As part of this Fall In Love series, 
gearing up to the link party on Wednesday 5th October, 
I wanted to put together a contemporary version of the 
mooching-in-the-country tank-top-and-slacks look.
Slightly bookish, slightly serious....but adding a huge pop of colour.

Tank top: Next, Trousers: Monsoon, Jewellery: Accessorize and Top Shop

This woollen tank top is firmly on my Happy List.
How could you NOT feel happy with 
those bright stripes beaming at you?

And, let me tell you, I don't this is the last you'll be seeing of these high-waisted trousers. They're my first pair in this style and I love 'em. 

Wouldn't they look great, as the weather cools, 
with a crisp white shirt instead of the tank top?

{Mmm, yeah, I'll try that, thanks.}

A very Happy English Autumn to you.

I love the white shirt and high waisted trousers look -do it!

It's got a sort of endless style about it, with some nice sunnies in the hair for the low winter sun when driving, a large sleeveless woollen cardy..... getting carried away now....Loving the trousers,especially the pocket style and details.....there's nothing like a pair of well tailored trousers.

Well done, enjoyed the relaxed Friday blog!

You look stunning Sarah. Is that a new clinique lipstick I spy?

Erin S. said...

You look lovely. It also looks like your weather is doing what ours is, and giving us the summer we never had. I love low 70's yet somehow still crisp Fall days.

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

Yes, our weather is utterly fantastic today. So warm...but still so autumn-y. My favourite!


LindyLouMac said...

I love the tank top, now I wish I had kept the ones I had last time they were in fashion! Have a fantastic weekend I hear your weekend is going to be distinctly summery rather than autumnal. :)

Sonny G said...

lisaroy said...

So cute! I really love those trousers :)

Almost Precious said...

The colors in that tank are simply delightful. I see you've chosen to accessorize with a pretty turquoise bangle, bringing out the turquoise stripes. With a number of colors to choose from all it takes is a change of accessories to change the look and mood of that outfit. And yes a crisp white blouse would be very sophisticated with those slacks.

Tracy Glover said...

You look lovely. But most of all, I love your flower! So cute and whimsical.
Thanks for your recent visits to my blog. It is always fab to hear from you. xxx

Ricki Treleaven said...

I love the striped sweater tank! Too cute!

Cindy said...

Hello beautiful,
That is definitely a very happy top! I love the colors.
Have a great Sunday.
Hugs, Cindy

Andrea Reh said...

Missing some lovely Autumn weather, and afternoon in the pub with a good pint and a crackling fire! Lovely as always. Liz


And what a gorgeous fall you are having, Sarah. I skypped with Christy today and she was . . . sun burned. Enjoy it in your cute stripey tank.


Calypso In The Country said...

You look so pretty! Love the stripes too! Looks like it is pretty warm there still. The last couple of days have been much cooler here in New Jersey.

Travel With Lulu said...

Love that stripy top! Perfect outfit for our Indian Summer :) Working on my post for Wednesday {squeal}!
