There’s a nip in the air! And the smell of wood smoke! Leaves have hit the ground and there’s a soft dappled sunlight that is simply magical. Conkers are rolling around just waiting for a health and safety case against them….Man, I love Autumn. I was born in Autumn so maybe that’s why it makes me all misty eyed and such.

As you may already know, I put together an Autumn Lookbook for Organic September featuring some of my favourite sustainable pieces from various brands. Part of creating this video involved looking through  A LOT of organic fashion! And I was rather taken with quite a few of the autumnal offerings from the latest People Tree collection. So I thought I’d share some of my favourites with you.

I always thought tunics were solely for those going back to school or Alexa Chung. I’ve never felt quite “cool” enough to wear them without feeling like I’m trying too hard. But then I spotted this cute little tunic made from woven cotton. I like grey too. So I thought, what the heck! Let me try it! And what d’ya know? I love it! Also, perhaps surprisingly, my husband loves it too! He actually took the pics of me wearing the * Talia Shirt Tunic and his eyes lit up when he saw this outfit. A definite favourite of his.

It’s also pretty versatile. I went bare-legged as it was still a warm day when we took the pictures, but I could totally add some tights or wear it as a long top over some skinny jeans.

Whilst this particular garment isn’t made from organic cotton as I’m told the woven material isn’t currently available in organic,  the majority of cotton clothing from People Tree is made using organic cotton, something they are very proud of.

I’m obsessed with this top! Normally I find prints difficult to wear and a stripe is all I can get away with. But from time to time, I’ll find a print that seems to work. *And this printed frill top (look closely and you’ll spy sausage dogs!) is just the ticket. Part of collaboration with Peter Jensen, this print can also be found on a few dresses and shirts too. I’m wearing it here with a pair of organic cotton jeans from Muji and my trusty Sydney Brown cork heels.

Crikey, is it bedtime already? I’m a big fan of nightwear. Especially when it looks this good! I love the star print on the organic cotton * robe and * nightshirt. So much so, that I felt compelled to walk around the block in them. I chose grey but similar styles are available in a dusky pink in the collection.
