I do enjoy an all black ensemble in the summer. At the dog end of it you will need multiple layers, mine are all in cotton so they can be discarded as needed and it means I don’t roast on the train. I like this transition into Autumn when you can still flash a bit of leg, arm or toe -especially if you still have remnants of a tan. The back to school weather is one of my favourite times of year, when the conkers are starting to throw themselves to the ground and the leaves begin to turn. I am resisting the urge to release my knitwear from its vacuum packed home for just a little longer.
