As the weather gets colder and Devon looks pretty in orange and burgundy red, it is time to go outside for a frisk walk – and to investigate what wardrobe pieces to bring home to keep you warm this season.
We have put together a look book of items from our shop, just something to use as inspiration, together with a couple of activities you and your partner can enjoy during a weekend in Exeter.
For Walking to the Waterfront
You may think the Quay is only for summer nights, but it is excellent for a hot cup of something whilst strolling the waterside. The best way to get there is by walking down Exeter High Street, continuing down Forestreet to the small independent shops (have a look to see what you may find in all the vintage and gift shops - it is great for an unpredictable day out). Then, simply turn left and you will be at the Quay in less than 5 minutes.
For a comfortable walk, match your jumper with a warming scarf and folded jeans. And let that scarf light your outfit up with a striking colour!
For Taking Some Unforgettable Photos
Another activity we recommend is capturing the incredible autumn feel on camera. All Exeter parks are exploding with colour, and the light is fantastic this time of year, giving you pictures to frame and keep as loving memories. Remember to have fun – those leaves are there to play with, and once a year only!
Let all those autumn colours do the job, dress for a walk in the park in something neutral and sustainable. A cream jumper with a leather bag will never go out of style. Matching with a scarf is perfect for the current weather.
For men, a fool-proof outfit combination for this season is jumpers over shirts, matched with a thick scarf and smart trousers or shoes. Use this style for work or a weekend out - it works with everything.
Are you looking for a new go-to piece to use for months to come? Or perhaps you are looking for something for your partner, a spontaneous gift or something to package up for Christmas? Have a look in our online shop or on 126 Forestreet in Exeter; we have plenty of sustainable garments and appreciated gifts with a story!
