And just like that it’s full blown winter here in Montreal! Snow covered trees, fences, rooftops – it’s so beautiful this time if year… You know… Before the white, fluffy, powdery snow turns into one solid mass of greyish, crystallized, frozen waste…
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves… For now, it still looks like a scene from a good old fashioned holiday movie out there, and it has me feeling swell!
Movies like Miracle on 34th Street, It’s a Wonderful Life, and classic Christmas music, they have this magical, old-world, holiday charm about them.
When I see the snow sitting upon drooping branches, and smell the intoxicating aroma the neighbour’s wood burning stove, I feel some sort of imagined nostalgia for an era I was never a part of; and my new, pastel blue coat from ELOQUII channels my wistful affection for Christmases past with grace and elegance.
In in keeping with the theme, I’ve paired it with my gorgeous, pale pink, customized (of course) ruffled dress from eShakti, peep toe (yes peep toe) silver pumps from Aldo, a faux-fur, pillbox shaped hat from Forever 21, and a vintage, hand beaded clutch. A knuckle, and midi ring add a fresh, modern touch to this glamorous, retro style and take it into the 21st century.
I’ve been seeing so many other bloggers doing little recaps if their outfit posts at the end of each month, and I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon and start doing them too!
There’s something so satisfying about seeing your favourite styles all grouped together before your eyes, so here are mine:
September was a good month, but I’m looking forward to everything I have in store for October!!! So much to come!!! Stay tuned!!!
It was a hot and sunny weekend, and it can be hard to look put together in the heat when you’re face turns a dozen shades of pink and your entire body feels dewy; but I managed to stay cool and stylish in this gorgeous lace skirt from ELOQUII. I love its rich orange hue and how amazing it looked worn higher up for a high waisted look.
I paired it with this light, sheer, ivory colored blouse, square hoop earrings, bangles, matching square cuff, and these amazing tortoiseshell sunnies from Forever 21+, an elegant, beaded necklace from Aldo Accessories, and simple gold flip flops from Walmart, for an effortlessly chic daytime look that was as comfortable as it was classy.
And since no outfit of mine is truly complete without the ultimate accessory, here’s one more shot, with the handsome hubby on my arm!
