Plaid and leather can definitely be a punk-y combination, especially if we’re talking red and black buffalo plaid with black leather. But due to a warmer color palette this look is a little more Fancy Lady Lumberjack, I think. I wonder if THAT look will ever be trendy …
A year later, I’m still so excited to have scored this leather jacket on eBay. It’s originally from Victoria’s Secret, and surprisingly soft and well-made in addition to being that perfect shade of cognac. Oh, cognac. I may never drink you, but I sure do love to wear you.
Can you tell I’m feeling a little scattered this week? It’s like Brain Popcorn in here.
Wore this a couple of weekends ago when we drove down to Winona – birthplace and namesake of Ms. Ryder – to take in the fall color. We also swung through Red Wing and a few other small towns. People, it was GORGEOUS. And although most of those leaves are gone by now, the ones behind me on the maple-lined block south of ours were downright stunning, too.
This dress hails from fabulous Toronto designer Jessica Rose, and is part of a new line she’s created using Liberty prints. I’m a fool for anything Liberty and Jessica Rose’s designs are always as comfy as they are lovely, so this dress is a joy to wear.
My weekend looks are often similar to my weekday looks, but certain summer Saturdays find me craving simple shorts and graphic tees. All of my shorts are Lees, and these new additions are slightly longer than most. Not quite a true Bermuda, but definitely getting close. They are just as comfy and cute as they can be and the perfect partner for my local-love printed tees. The sneaks are a new addition, too, and I just adore them. Love the sunwashed canvas and hate to admit it, but they’re far comfier than my beloved Chuck Taylors.
