Fall Fashion night!

When I saw this outfit on Pinterest, I fell in love with it immediately

Completely reminiscent of a fall picnic, the subdued tones are just...warm and comfy to me. While I'm not super fond of the shoes and would probably pair this outfit with some booties in a charcoal tone, I love the leather jacket addition and the lovely vintage feel to the outfit.

 While the weather is turning toward winter, this outfit would be lovely for a date night out to the movies, I think!

Fall Fashion Forward...layer up!

The warmth of the days is short lived in mid-November...a crisp chill takes your breath away and you're suddenly yearning for a warm fuzzy blanket and a cup of cocoa.

Dressing in layers for fall is one of my favourite ways to beat the chill. While lovely jackets with ruffles, buttons and pleats are great, there's something cozy about layering a cardigan {in a great mustard yellow} over a long sleeved tee or blouse, accented by a men's watch.

Pure love!

Top it off with some classic aviators and you have the perfect outfit for brunch with friends, or a lunch date with your main squeeze!

BlogHer Sponsor Love: Kristine Cook Designs

Details,'s all in the details!

Kristine Cook has done it again in her design for my brunch dress for BlogHer'12!

When we first met, we talked about my love of neutrals, stripes and a pop of colour. She captured my style so absolutely perfectly in this dress.

Slate grey, paired with a white and grey stripe that is so delicately draped from one shoulder down to the opposite hip and falling ever so femininely down the skirt. The detailing on this dress is simply divine!

For the pop of color, Kristine chose to bring in the same coral of my tailored jacket by putting a sash at my {rather high} natural waist and up on the shoulder in an abstract draped manner. It reflects who I am as an artist, all in one beautiful dress!

Now I need to find the perfect shoes!
