Farewell Summer

Today is the first day of September and you can tell. I woke up to it being nearly freezing outside and wanted nothing more than to just bundle up. Of course I knew that by noon the day would feel warmer so I did my best to avoid a sweater. Anyway, though we technically have 20 days or so until it is officially Autumn, this time of year is automatically Fall for me.

So, as a nod to the beautiful Summer and sunshine we enjoyed over the last couple months, a pair of Castaner jean espadrilles in bright colours as we part ways with this season and embrace the next.

What was your favourite part of the Summer? Are you looking forward to Autumn? If you haven’t figured it by now, it’s when the weather cools down that is my favourite.


Burnt Orange

Chloe wedge

Everywhere I look I see burnt orange and everyone I hear from is going on and on as if it is this new revolutionary colour that we have never before seen. But really people, take a look, it is just another beautiful Autumn colour that we have seen many, many times before, we just changed the name of it this season. Regardless, I too love it- actually I loved it even back before it was a thing to love- and believe it fits perfectly into the end of Summer/start of Fall/well into Fall season. My ode to this season’s most popular colour has actually been through a pair of silk culottes. A little bit of a bolder choice but something inside me just said yes when I found them.

I picked this Chloe sandal wedge for a number of reasons this morning: it sports the colours everyone is suddenly crazy about, it is suede-very on point and current though it too has been around since the dawn of time, the metal edging at the back of the shoe, and the fact that it is Chloe and Chloe does no wrong.

So what is your take on “burnt orange”? Anyone else excited for Fall? I spent a good deal of time yesterday working on my new Autumn wardrobe and new closet in the new house. Spring is supposed to be a time for new beginnings but the last few weeks has been feeling more right for me. There has been a ton of change for me in the last month or so and I’m glad to embrace it with open arms.

Happy Wednesday to all my readers, I hope you’re all having a terrific day! Don’t forget to say “hello!” in the comment section!

Manolo Blahnik: Pink Addiction

pink manolo blahnik

I don’t know what it is, but whenever I add a new pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes to my collection, they are always pink or purple, or have a ton of pink or purple in them. It’s not like I plan on solely purchasing shoes in these colours by the designer, I have never even thought of that; it is that I think I just love super girly pumps and am naturally pulled to those colours. They are just so pretty, don’t you think?

ps- sample sales are the best.

Think Colourfully

J.Crew d'Orsay blueWhile I love myself a neutral flat, sometimes I just can’t say no to colour. I think everything about these J.Crew d’Orsay flats are so on point- from the  flecks of added colour, the shape of the toe and the material itself, I don’t think d’Orsay flats can get much better than this. I could see myself styling them with nearly everything for almost any occasion. What do you think? Do you ever just need a POP of colour?
