I love hats in the fall. What's your favourite go-to clothing or accessories piece this fall? The autumn is cool enough that your head does not sweat from the heat of the hat, but yet warm enough that you don't need a wooly hat to keep your ears warm against the snow and wind. Fall is a great time of year for layering. I love the little details, like rolling up pant legs, with big socks. With vests and statement necklaces. Statment necklaces are the number one essential piece you MUST have in your wardrobe this year. I think they are amazing and take any outfit from a blah to a zing! Autumn is the perfect season to get your fashion on. 

I just got back from England 5 days ago, and it was my first time in Europe. I had goosebumps the entire time. No one prepares you for the majestic feeling you have walking into a building that is over a 1,000 years old. It was incredible.

I loved how everyone dressed in London, in fact one of my favourite things to do was just sit on the tube and watch all the different people that would get on and see what they all were wearing! The men in europe are so stylish, every single man in london was dressed to the nines. I hope you all had a wonderful past two weeks. What's your favourite place in Europe? England? London?

It's now turned from summer heat wearing dresses to wearing my fleece tights, my kilts and warm sweaters! It sure was chilly today - 5 degrees! brrr. 

This is a Europe inspired outfit. I just got back from spending two weeks in England. I just adore this floppy hat. Something about putting on a floppy hat and instantly your outfit goes from a 1950's grandmother's outfit and turns into a modern day fashion look. High boots are also important in this type of look. If you don't have knee high boots, that is shame and that must be remedied for this season! I think high boots modernize any outfit and are great for longer wool skirts, that COULD be frumpy but updates them to be stylish.
The three patterns on this outfit all work well together because they are either small pattern or they have a lot of cream or solid colour background to compliment it. Throwing on a statement necklace is also important when trying to modernize pullover sweaters and below the knee length skirts. Statement necklaces look awesome over collared shirts and pull over sweaters or cardigans. Do the buttons right up, leave your shirt un-tucked and wear a long cardigan with a statement necklace from my online shop with some jeans for a more casual look if you don't think you can pull of this english inspired outfit. 

Are you all ready for Halloween? Tristan and I are decorating this weekend. We are having a halloween party and the guest of honours are Mr. and Mrs. skeleton and their family. They'll be residing at our dinner table for the evening. (Can you tell I love halloween and can't wait for next weekend's party, strobe lights, fog machine, dry ice, guts, blood and more!) 

Tristan and I are having some troubles figuring out what we should be. Here's our last two year outfits. 
What are you going as? Do you celebrate halloween? What was your favourite costume you ever dressed up as?
