Last rays of sunshine as autumn draws in
Kristin Hesse collects summer feel-good moments and stores them up to carry her through winter.
La Felicità... è un bicchiere die vino e un panino, la felicità...
Who could forget this catchy song from the early 80s? And even if you didn't really understand the lyrics of this Italian pop song (except for the chorus), you still knew what Al Bano and Romina Power were singing about: happiness. "Un bicchiere die vino e un panino" - which translates slightly less romantically as “a glass of wine and a sandwich” - epitomise that feeling of contentedness, just like walking hand in hand or listening to the sound of rain against the window. However clichéd these images may seem, for me it’s always these quiet little moments that create happiness - memories which I store up over the summer to last me through the winter months. They’re special moments I stumble across, where everything feels like it is exactly as it should always be. A good book, those last rays of sunshine, a glass of wine and someone waiting just for me.

A good book, a glass of wine - what more do you need to be happy?
Take summer into autumn
To go with that great wine, book and feeling of blissful happiness, you also need the perfect outfit. During this transition time between the seasons, I like to mix my summer styles with some initial autumn pieces which I can then carry through into the cooler months. These leopard-print bootees
by Högl caught my eye a few weeks ago. Now, at last, the heatwave is over and I can finally wear them!
Eye-catching animal print
Untamed comfort in its truest sense. The tapered, slim shape gives the feet a dainty appearance. As they don’t just look cool, but also a little extravagant, I particularly like to combine them with romantic skirts and dresses, or with cropped jeans and culottes. But they also break up the look of the jumpsuit beautifully. Add a denim jacket for the cooler evenings and the late summer outfit is complete.
I would even go so far as to say that a good outfit makes every moment of happiness even better still.
I wish you many more golden moments to take you into the autumn!
