Autumn Tones

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I’ve been feeling under the weather, and was in bed most of last week. But I think I’m on the up-and-up. Let’s hope so, because my favorite kind of weather is happening this week…sunny, dry and cold. It means I can wear suede, and I do love me some suede. Until last Expo, I hadn’t come upon the perfect western leather jacket, and now, in the last few weeks I’ve purchased three! Including this one…

The suede is so soft, I love it so much. And the jacket is by one of my favorite jacket brands, Californian, by the California Sportwear Company of Los Angeles.

I swung by Imelda’s to see if the Miss L Fire Spring/Summer collection went on sale, and indeed it did! I purchased a pair of their Parades in some nice autumn tones. So while it is a “spring/summer” shoe, it certainly screams fall to me!  I will say though that the ribbon ties on these are a bit of a pain. I found them a little on the short side, and prone to coming untied, and the little plastic ends would fall into the shoe, creating an uncomfortable moment where it would press between my foot and the shoe.  I may find myself replacing the ribbon for different ties of some kind.

I also popped into Naked City, a shop I really rarely find myself at, for a combination of reasons, but they had something in the window that I thought would make a perfect gift for my dad, and I found something for me, this wonderful “Retrolite” cowboy brooch, by Classic Hardware, I had been drooling over for sometime.  He’s quite convincing as vintage Bakelite, but a fraction of the cost, and less worrisome!

  1. Sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling well! Hope you’re on the mend now. This outfit is all kinds of fabulous. Right on the money for fall. I love that yellow sweater with the coppery jacket and jeans. (Well, and obviously the amazing Miss L Fires. lol) Picture perfect!

  2. Love, love everything about this outfit – the jacket, the shoes, the colors (and what a fabulous handbag). Perfect on you 🙂 Stay well, and enjoy!

  3. There isn’t a single outfit of yours that I don’t adore (I really mean that), but sometimes certain ones stand out as instant firm favourites and this gorgeous autumn hued look is definitely just such an ensemble for me (you look nothing short of stunning). As someone who lives for fall’s palette and sports it all season long, this outfit really took my breath away and set me yearning for a rust hued jacket of my own – something new to look for, inspired entirely by you, in my future travels! 🙂

    Big hugs!

  4. Gorgeous fall outfit…I love everything, but the cowboy brooch puts it over the top. I love./hate when I’m shopping for someone else, and find something for me instead! You feel like “I failed at my intended goal…but BONUS, LOOK HOW COOL THIS IS!” 🙂

  5. Well, aren’t you just a vision of autumn loveliness! Those shoes are perfection, and I love all of the colors.
    I’m sorry you’ve been feeling under the weather, and I hope you’re on the mend. I admit to feeling a bit blah lately too, perhaps there’s something in the air.

  6. You look absolutely divine my dear. Perfect color combos! And your bangs are too stink in cute like that. I hope you are feeling a bit better, changes in the weather can really throw you for a loop ❤
