On the Fringe

Felt Hat & Jeans: Charlotte Russe, Sunnies: Downtown Threads, Poncho: Target, Knit Cardigan: Shalom Shuk, Cowboy Boots: Italy

A bit over the top (wish I hadn’t worn the sunnies) but hindsight is always 20/20, right? I think my affinity for ponchos and caplets comes from my love of being wrapped up in blankets on a chilly day. Since I can’t get away with wearing throw blankets out in public (though some have tried) this hooded poncho over my peachy knit was the next best thing.

How have you been fending off the first hints of winter’s chill?

 

Perfect Print for Fall

Sunnies, Tank, & Necklace: Charlotte Russe, Cardigan: Land’s End (via Savers), Skirt: Downtown Threads, Jessica Simpson Booties: MarshallsAs a maxi skirt this tribal print piece was virtually unwearable. It’s done in a deceivingly heavy fabric so wearing it as maxi skirt was like being rolled up in a stale burrito wrapper (not that I know what that’s actually like, but you get the idea). Enter my wonderful tailor Christine. She removed almost two feet of fabric (which I’m saving for a DIY project) and gave this skirt a whole new life.

I tried to offset the skirt’s bold print by pairing it with classic pieces in camel and navy and simple but chic accessories (like my Jessica Simpson peeptoes). Unfortunately, and I hate to say it, this may be the last time you’ll be peeping my peeptoes (or toes) for quite a while; there’s been talk of snow flurries.

What are you sad to pack away for the season? What pieces are you looking forward to wearing well into winter?
