it’s beginning to feel a lot like winter.  cold, windy and a bit miserable.  luckily, faux fur jackets are with us for another season.  i couldn’t live without my collection of wild faux furs (more to come in future posts).  these make my winter blues a little bit better and a little more wild.  they are a good reason for a cold winter.  for this look, i kept my hair swept up in a bun as the jacket provides just enough flounce.  since i’m a huge fan of high boots, these gray pair are perfect and offsets the other colors a bit.  even though flat, they still appear dressy.  my only hope is – no one reports a bigfoot sighting.

these are the perfect days to be outside for a little sightseeing.  it furthers my appreciation for nature’s vastness and puts into perspective just how much there is to see of the world. plus, the weather has been perfect; a little chilly, but sunny enough to forgo a true coat.  in this setting, i blend in quite well, except for the touch of red.  this is my favorite sweater for the fall season.  i adore the little french hen on the front (for the record, this is as close as i will ever get to one)! this sweater is so close to my heart.  i can’t wait to wear it all season.  happy monday!

seeing spots

i love dots!  they are so reminiscent of childhood.  both whimsy and youthful, they are a sure bet this season to quickly update your wardrobe.  combined with a funky tweed skirt and playful plaid flats, the dotted shirt is a perfect play on spots.
