If you're Scottish you will have realised by now we aren't getting a summer this year. It's pointless holding out for that elusive late summer, miraculously appearing in September. It ain't happening. If you foolishly bought summerwear, pack it away and get over it.

I have started to plan the things I shall be purchasing for autumn and also making wishlists of things I won't necessarily buy but will seek to use them as inspiration. Back when we started this blog, I featured Rick Owens a lot. Along with Haider Ackermann and Tixell Miras, Owens was by far my favourite designer. Recently I have gotten back into the Owens aesthetic in a big way, digging out some well loved pieces from my wardrobe archives. In terms of recent pieces, I have been lusting after his knee high boots with woollen legwarmer-esque tops. There is nothing those boots wouldn't look glorious with.

I'm also feeling florals for winter and this pretty Ganni dress would see me thorough autumn, winter and the following spring. Worn with these adorable red kitten heel ankle boots, that's a perfect little outfit right there. 

Other things on the list include some pretty earrings, some fabulous geo patterned socks and my current favourite perfume by Alexander McQueen. I also wish to re-buy this Marlies Dekkers bra. I have this already but it's much too small for me now (thanks middle age boob growth) and was one of the comfiest bras ever, so I want to purchase it again.

So that's  my August Current Faves.
