Anyone else old enough to remember that old TV programme ‘the last of the summer wine’ ? Such a sweet and funny little comedy series about getting old and reminiscing about days gone by. None of that here today, but I am wondering as the title suggests if this will be the last of my summer outfits? They do say that after October you shouldn’t be seen in linen! Who are ‘they’ I wonder, and do we still pay attention to these antiquated rules of dressing? So here I am prancing around in a field wearing new Vionic shoes and a magic linen dress and sharing it all with you…

This simple black linen dress was made to measure for me by Magic Linen a brand I admire greatly. A family run business that care about organic materials and slow living. Like me they enjoy the process of making things by hand therefore avoiding mass producing items made in factories
This style of dress is called Corfu and comes with a tie belt in 4 different colours. If I was in Corfu I would probably wear it with flat leather sandals and not much else! Unfortunately this being the UK on a breezy but sunny Sunday in Dorset I wore it with jeans and my new Vionic shoes…

Transitional Dressing and the Menopause.
The struggle is real! Transitional dressing is difficult here in the UK, especially the early Autumnal days. Frosty mornings turn into sweltering afternoons. Dressing for these days especially if you are menopausal is hard. One moment you are shivering, the next beads of sweat are accumulating on your top lip. I strip off and layer up at least twice a day. Layers as you know are the answer, they also cover a heap of bulges and bumps that have appeared in places they did not used to be!

I agree with every word of this description from their website, especially ‘addictive support’
” VIONIC shoes provide essential stability and addictive support. With a contour seamlessly engineered into each shoe, sandal and slipper, VIONIC helps support natural alignment from the ground up”
I am wearing the casually stylish Demetra they come in other colours too, are perfect for autumnal transitional dressing. True to size I am a 5 and they were comfy even on wearing for the first time…
I also love and own these boots and trainers below and will be wearing them again and again this Autumn!
Jeans: Marks and Spencer
