Change is coming

Hey Guys!

I think we can all agree it is officially autumn, and I for one am actually happy about it. I mean what's not to love, the leaves are pretty, comfort food is a go to, and of course it means it is sweater weather!!
Is there anything better than a soft cosy jumper? No, I don't think there is! I think I love autumn so much because layers are back, I mean I am always cold so wear jumpers and sweaters a lot, but this is sweater season, it's now the uniform till at least March...it also means you get to stock up on a few more. 
Talking of stocking up, I have noticed that there has been a lot of talk your fashion footprint and how fast fashion is negatively affecting our carbon footprint and I have been thinking about it a lot, I mean after watching the Stacey Dooley documentary it was quite hard to actually think about how much unnecessary items of clothes I buy. I do love shopping and clothes and I love to buy new things but after watching that documentary I am now more aware of the problem the fast fashion culture has on the environment and know that even small changes I make to my shopping habits will have a positive impact. Now I am not saying that I won't buy the occasional unnecessary purchase, I mean I am only human, but I am really going to try make a more conscious effort to change my habits.

Trainers - Adidas c/o Office (similar here)

Another habit I am stopping for good, and this is a biggie, Topshop. I have long been a huge Topshop fan, from when I was first really able to buy my own clothes I have loved shopping there, but no more. A couple of week's ago Scarlett Curtis released a fabby new book called Feminists Don't Wear Pink (and other lies): Amazing women on what the F-word means to them which is a collection of essays and stories from lots of different women about feminism and it supports the great Girl Up. The publisher had arranged for a great pop-up shop in Topshop in Oxford street to go up to celebrate the book and young women, but the pop-up was up or a whole 20 minutes before Philip Green, big Topshop boss man, demanded the whole thing be taken down due to "a production and creative standpoint". I was really shocked by this, I mean why wouldn't Topshop want to support young women and girls? Is that not who their clothes are designed and marketed for?!?! I just don't understand what they were thinking! I just can't support putting more money into that man's pockets after that, so I am not! 

So I guess this autumn is bringing about lots of changes, not just in the weather.
