In the mood for Fall

Mixing greens and tans again... so in the mood for Fall but our weather is not cooperating. Well at least I have control over my wardrobe!

Jogger and bomber

With so much activity each day, I'm positively exhausted every night and in no mood to dress up for dinner. Thank goodness for comfy joggers and shiny bomber jackets and also for cute little Bistros!

light jacket

Too much shopping? Yes, there is such a thing when you get tired of shopping... I never thought I get to my limit but this month proved me otherwise.
Shopping or not, dressing up is always fun!

shades of navy

An outfit for a fun day and walking... lots and lots of walking...

Denim on denim

A chic way to do Canadian Tuxedo? Yes, apparently it can be done. I liked my version!

Comfy night

A very comfortable outfit for a late night pizza dinner. Loose and stretchy it was perfect for indulging on delicious pizza.

Carnberry colors

My favorite fall color is cranberry or burgundy. When there is a chance to wear it head to toe who am I to resist?!

Floral navy

I had a totally different outfit planned but an accident with hair spray made me switched outfits last minutes. In retrospect, it was very fortunate since we ended up gambling the night away!

Heading out for a picnic by the river? Don't forget your pretty accessories... I was very much in mood for silver.

Fall layers

The first layer outfit is like a celebration. I enjoyed mixing tans and greens.

Pumpkin outfit

In addition to pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin colored outfits are a staple of Fall.
Here is my new recipe:

Gold and cobalt

Brightening up some boring blues with gold. Not that I don't like blues but I had a suspicion I was becoming too depressed. Gold always picks me up!

White comfort

I don't adhere to silly rules like "no white after Labor day". I like white outfits and after 48 hours of plane rides and transit delays, I needed something comfortable and clean.

Fall greens

Fall colors without fall's temperature? Yeah, we have to be creative!
Combination of golds and greens represents early Fall, doesn't it?

Fall trend: Cat print

I think the only way I've ever worn this leopard print blouse is with white jeans or white pants.
And I mostly wear it in Fall despite it being a light silk. Why?!!

Airport outfit

Over the years I have formulated my most comfortable outfit for long flights:
A slim (and stretchy) pair of jeans in a dark color, a loose knit top, a long duster or cardigan and a colorful scarf to brighten up all the dark neutrals.
After trying many variation of "carry on luggage" from backpack to tote bag to a rolling carry-on , I have finally settled on the classic boarding bag. Mine is by Samsonite, classic indeed. But the size is perfect, the black canvas damage proof and it is roomy enough for all my essentials including my flight pillow! I even fit my purse in this boarding bag.
Another necessity? Large but not too dark sunglasses. You really don't want to show your smudged eyeliner to other passengers.
As for shoes, a pair of leather flats or short block heels or even short wedges work great. Easy to slide off and on for security checks, comfortable to walk in and they look polished.

New lip color

You may have noticed from my post that I've been wearing two type of lip colors a bit obsessively. I fell in love with the matte finish, depth of color and longevity of these lip colors and as with all my obsessions, I started collecting them!
-Revlon HD matte lip colors: named based of emotions like Obsession, Love, flirtation... Give a soft finish. First application gives a lighter color than the bottle. Simply bloat and reapply to build up to the color you desire. A bit drying.

-NYX soft matte lip creams: these are the first products I used from this brand. Colors are named after cities, like Amsterdam, Prague, Mont Carlo,... the first application is very much like the bottle so use a light hand if you want a soft color. Last really good...give a nice matte finish.

Fall bags

What my research into Fall trendy bag shows, in one quick look:

Fall mix

Burgundy and brick, yeah, sounded good in theory! What do you think, hit or miss?!

Fall contrast

Nope, I admit there was too much contrast and the colors too bright. One failed experiment to horrify  you:

White on white

Loved the 100 degree temp, cool enough to wear jeans (even if they are cropped) and warm enough for off the shoulder top. Sometimes I can like leaving in Arizona!

Camo colors

Sometimes you want to camouflage yourself as you run through your To Do list.
This shirt is made for a pairing with a camo skirt. I had to, you know!

Black on black

I like a black tank top as well as the next gal but instead of skinny jeans, I wear mine with silk wide legs. A whole lot more suited for this weather.
Red lips though? They are the same everywhere!

Silk insert tee

So happy I bought this tee in two colors. It is the perfect mix of casual and chic. A form of nonchalant luxury...
For this Fall I think I live in spruce green. What about you?

Eyelets and oxfords

Put the top and pants together as an experiment and concluded they were made for each other. I loaded up on blue accessories but next time might go for something more unexpected.

Too much blue these days? Apparently I'm depressed! ;)
