So far, I have refused to properly acknowledge fall. At work I lumber around in 17 sweaters (kinda like the Michelin man but with a cuter face... I hope) in the midst of a fall clean-ups but I'm still thinking summer thoughts. This weekend, however, is the Canadian Thanksgiving and it's about time I come to terms with autumn. I don't hate fall, it is so pretty and crisp, it's just that after fall and then after Santa, comes the long, grey Canadian winter. It will be cold, it will snow and I will hibernate in my house wearing sweats, Matt's sweaters AND a fuzzy blanket wrapped around me like a tube dress. So not stylish.


But since it really is autumn, I should embrace and style it up while it lasts. Nothing says fall quite like some plaid, a turtleneck, brown boots and sequins. Ok fine... sequins have nothing to do with autumn dressing, they are my 4 season staple... I hope you guys enjoy my first foray into fall fashion (say that 10X fast) as the only person around here to see it (besides family and Matt...) will be the teenager working the evening shift at Tim Hortons and giving Matt his double-double on the drive up to the cottage.


Happy Thanksgiving all my Canadian lovelies! Though everyone should be thankful as it's finally the weekend! xo

Plaid + sequins = GENIUS. Love it.

You know I always comment on your hair (I love your style and your writing, but your hair fascinates me). I want to see bigger photos, my honey! When I click to enlarge I get a 'private, keep out page' from flickr. Any chance you could change things so I can slavishly replicate your do's based on higher resolution images?

Yen, I LOVE the way you are rocking those sequins. Don't take this the wrong way, but I think that most people wearing gold sequins, plaid, and a turtleneck might risk looking homeless. You, however, look amazing. Give thanks for your awesomeness this year, lady!

Jentine you look like you belong on the sprawling ground of an English manor! Oh and I love how you added the dash of sparkle- I've been hunting around for the perfect sequined layering thing for the fall/winter- and your outfit is just added inspiration!

Happy, happy Thanksgiving! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I feel exactly the same way about Fall/Autumn. It's not that it's a bad season but I hate winter.

Thanks for all your lovely comments...
Nadine-the close-up pic probably lost resolution because I cropped it from a big pic. I'll try to have better close-ups... Very flattering, my hair is in this awkward satge and so unsure of what to do with it, I sometimes just twist it and let it go.

That sequin vest needs to have a twin come live with me here in Austin! :0)

Happy Thanksgiving (belated) to you too! Hope it was fun.

the surprise sequins make this outfit so uniquely you! I love how you've layered the socks over the jeans... putting that in my inspiration folder ;)
