Here, I have picked out my top picks for these early Autumn days. Not fully letting go of the summer days, I have chosen some pastel knits, to brighten a dull day and dark shaggy textures to keep you feeling cosy and warm.

Okay, being something of a nail geek, I am totally excited about the textured nail wraps heading our way late summer, early autumn. Just when you wonder what can happen next to move a look on or to give a boost of excitement, along comes something like this. I could not love them more....

It's another beautiful Indian Summer day in early-autumn Paris, and another day spent previewing the Spring/Summer Prêt-à-Porter for 2012. First, join Susan at the Lanvindéfilé, where the star-studded audience is wowed by a parade of lean, leggy models in sleek jumpsuits, slim skirts and...

I know you don't want me to mention the A word, or the W word for that matter, but when a new collection crops up on my radar that's wearable now and perfect for late summer and early Autumn days then I feel I should share. Besides it'll take my mind off the growing list of AW11 items that I...

The final option is the 'contrasting sleeves' jacket – very versatile and perfect for the early autumn months. Stylish, slick and the perfect focal point of any outfit. The male influenced styles should look as though they are borrowed from the man in your life; minimal lines and heavy...

Our favourite is probably early Autumn, from August when the green landscape turns bright orange and red. These photos are from one of our hikes, in Hardangervidda. Little b was 5 years and Little A was 1 year old. We had one mountain hut as a base and went on day hikes in the surrounding...

After a couple of months "website dress stalking" and deciding on the perfect investment piece for early autumn, the Missoni Rochelle Dress has landed in my lap and I want to wear it right now! A nude and black wool-blend chic work-to-play investment. Beautifully crafted in a striking zigzag...

This story took place in early autumn. All the events and anecdotes are completely true. No one's names have been changed. This was one of the highlights of 2011 for me and I'd like to share it with you. Missoni for Target pop-up Sarah May and I had arrived in NY just two days earlier,...
