Jacket: Topshop//Jumper: Primark//Jeans and Boots: Topshop

These are my favourite sort of Autumn days- the sunshine is still fairly warm, the leaves are turning, and it's crisp, but not freezing. The weekend just gone provided the perfect occasion for walks through the Heath and around parks.
I've just spent a tiring day in Cambridgeshire volunteering at one of the schools the charity I work for supports. We had a look round and then were put to our main task of the day- apple picking. The school is in an orchard so there was no shortage of apples, which were going to make a local cider (though a few ended up in our pockets for the journey home). I snapped a couple of the thatched cottages on Instagram, it really is very pretty around there!

  5. I love those kind of Autumn days - not quite cold enough for a coat, but cold enough to snuggle up in a cosy jumper. And warmth from the sun - lovely.
    Love your jumper. xx

  7. The jumper is lovely. So tempting to pop to Primark! A day spent apple picking sounds lovely, especially in this gorgeous autumn weather.

  8. I love sunny Autumn days best too. Those are the sort we're having as well and I'm trying to soak it all in before the rains come and soak me in a different way.

    That jumper is fabulous but what I really love is the bit of lace peeking out from the boots; great touch!

  19. Ahhh what a perk of the job, volunteering with kids must have been fun. I love your cardigan, can't beat one can ya. I also agree about nice autumnal days, but I feel your grass could be a brighter green if you had used high res images, not low res. Get with the times please Rachel. Bye. xxxx
