There’s a change in the air, no doubt about it – autumn’s on it’s way. As much as I would love for summer to stretch on way into September, there’s something briskly refreshing about the return of fall. After the long, hot, lazy days of summer it feels right to be pulling on coats and boots and making a fresh start of life. Maybe it’s a hangover from school days, but ochre leaves falling from the trees and a nip in the air signal fresh new beginnings. Ironic seeing as autumn by rights should be rather more melancholic. Maybe the buoyant mood that the seasonal change engenders is wholly to do with the presence of new fashion in the shops. Either way, I like it.
The start of a new season isn’t traditionally the time for clothes to go on sale, but those canny devils at ASOS are participating in a spot of back-to-school cheerfulness and treated us to a sale on new season essentials. Here are my favourites from the new season sale.

I love the freshness of back to school fashion; I may be long past the time of packing up my books and excitedly telling my friends about my summer adventure, but that doesn’t stop my unquenchable optimism at the prospect of falling leaves…and new clothes.
