Oregon seems to always have Indian Summers. It’s almost as if our months are all off. Winter lasts clear into April, and summer into October. I try not to complain when we have nice weather, since Oregon is known for its rain, but I have loads of woolen skirts and suits that are beginning to feel neglected! But today provided a glorious temperature for me to wear this amazing blouse a picked up earlier this week!
I normally don’t go for garments with Mandarin collars, but this blouse jumped out at me and I fell in love the instant I put it on. It’s made of fine, cool rayon and is perfect for these sort of days. Plus the color and gold thread detailing just screams fall!

On a few other notes… Patrick came home yesterday! And I finished my Halloween costume! Since Patrick and I are actually doing a couples costume this year, we require a third person to take photos, so tomorrow we’re getting together with our friend Anthony for a photo shoot. Anthony is an absolute delight to work with and I am really looking forward to shooting as well as sharing my Halloween costume that I have been slaving away on for two months. Has anyone else decided upon their Halloween costume?

Such a pretty blouse. I’m always told red heads can’t wear that color and I think they’re nuts!
I’m also working on my costume and hope to finish it up this weekend. I can’t wait to see what you’ll be!
Ha! OMG I can’t believe those pants are Victoria’s Secret! So rad, looking lovely as always.
I will celabrate Halloween for the second time in my life… It’s not really popular in FRANCE, some people tried a few years ago to import the US event but it’s even less celebrate than before… It’s now hard to find Halloween stuffs to decorate home… But we are planning a private party with friends and my husband and I have already planned our costume… I will keep it secret until the 31st….
Those pants are fantastic!
I normally don’t like Mandarin collars, either, but the detailing on this one is divine!
And I’ve decided to go as Rachel Berry again for Halloween this year. LOL.
Great outfit. No one wears red like a redhead. And those pants! Very Katherine Hepburn.
That blouse is absolutely marvelous! Love that your partnered it with classic wide legged trousers – tres chic indeed, stylish gal!
