Anyway, I thought I'd share some looks that I love from lookbook and other assorted blogs.
I love everything about this. The Jeffrey Campbells are beautiful- I've seen Tieka and Maria wear them too always to great effect. And I love them with the scrunched down ankle socks. I went shopping this weekend and got three pairs of Hue socks for $15 and I can't wait to bust them out for fall. I also love how she mixed complimentary colors red and green. I always think this is a bold move because it can so easily turn out looking Christmas-y, but here it is just lovely. Lately, I've been noticing some really pretty color pairings- especially with complimentary colors- I really love a peachy color with something blue or a lavender and neon yellow.
From the lovely Sally Jane Vintage. Military-inspired pieces are definitely hitting the fall scene and this jacket is perfect. On my shopping escapades, I bought one very similar to this for 30 bucks! It was a steal. But, most of all I love the play with more feminine pieces and harder, more masculine pieces. Also, I'm a huge sucker for brown accessories. I don't know what it is about it.
I recently found this blog, Fancy Fine, and have been absolutely obsessed ever since, I really can't get enough. She has an amazing eye for vintage finds and wears them in such unique, beautiful ways. I love her pattern mixing here and the subtle, but interesting color palette. So pretty!
Found this lovely look on Lookbook. I'm not usually a huge black person, but everyone needs a LBD and hers is a pretty combination of structure and volume. Lately, I've been liking the look of a black dress and black tights. I think it's important to balance it out though- I always worry I'll just look like a huge black blob. I think she did a good job here- the patent belt pops out from the dress and gives the outfit a little more interest and dimension.
And last but not least. I found Rockie on lookbook and then followed the link to her blog. She has such a one of a kind sense of style, I'm always pleasantly surprised when I head over to see what she's wearing. I really love brown and black together- so the skirt and shoes combo is just perfect to me. And I'm trying to embrace the virtue of a little bit of sparkly-ness. I usually shy away from anything sequined, metallic, glittery, etc. but sometimes it really is the perfect addition. Shopping escapade cont- metallic brocade skirt coming soon to a blog near you!
Hope you guys enjoyed this! Let me know your thoughts- hopefully kind ones. I had a fabulous weekend- spent it in Pennsylvania with my aunt and uncle & grandma. It was refreshing to get out of town and have a bit of change in scenery, and of course be around wonderful people. Not to mention my aunt is an amazing cook- i.e. bacon, tomato, onion, cheddar omelet for breakfast and filet mignon and local corn for dinner! mmmm :) Hope you had a great weekend too! What'd you do?
