Fashion: Autumn Wear Even For The Casual Weekends

On Sunday I was invited to breakfast with a friend and since the weather was super cold, I opted for warm athleisure wear, tennis shoes, no makeup and hair up in a messy ponytail. And then I arrive at the restaurant, and the first thing I noticed was how chic some folk, mostly the women were dressed to the occasion. Then I felt self-conscious of course, and vowed that I would make an effort to rummage through my closet and create these looks for the holiday brunches, and shopping  I plan to do over the course of the next few weekends.  

Looking Forward to October

The first day of the month, and only 90 days to the end of the year. But no worries, October is a month I look forward to, especially after the sluggishness and the unmotivated I felt by the end of August, and all throughout September. To me, October is the month to shed all the negative and just enjoy the most brilliant of colors, the layering in fashion, the shift in decor,  comfort food in recipes, and the prelude to the holiday planning.  October is the coolest month of the year. What Film to see, what recipe book to buy, and where to vacation in October    

Fashion: Fall Coats for 2019

The best ‘weather’ in season for San Francisco is Autumn, in that we get our Indian Summer – hot sunny days, and cooler evenings and we can literally see the moon at night (no fog). So thinking about coats for that season right before Winter sounds weird to us locals.  But, I can’t help share a few of my favorite coast from this list of twenty stylish fall coats for 2019 {featured image source and inspiration for today’s blog post} On another note – just started watching Mozart in the Jungle – and at first hated it, and now I am very curious to see the progression/story unfolding. Have you seen it? Will you see it? Does the show interest you or not your cup of tea? 

Fashion: Dresses for The Mature Woman

Or as I’d like to call it – those over 40, since sometimes maturity has nothing to do with wearing age-appropriate or those that compliment the figure. But then again, if it makes a person feel good, by all means, I say flaunt it as you vision it. But just in case you are curious, here’s what’s suggested and as always my favorites below. Let me know if you agree or disagree, if a certain dress code should be followed after 40. On another note – are you as excited as I am about the Downton Abbey Movie – which opens in the U.S. on September 20 {featured image source and credit}

Fashion: Almost Fall In Style

The chilly air this morning, had me searching for fall wear to work – and a sweater a few grades thicker than the summer one, and with that in mind, all I can focus on is all things fall. {source}     {source} On Another note – I long to be in the Scottish Highlands – if I can spend time here    

Fashion: Budget Friendly Alternative For the Trendy Shopper

We all do it – see a style sense online and feel the need to duplicate – or draw from to create our own look. For this very reason, I figured it would be fun to price the original piece and a budget-friendly alternative: For the Meghan look: Original ensemble details and a budget-friendly alternative  Skirt, Top, Shoes The camel blazer I’ve been searching for – Original pictured and top right $595.00 and replica bottom right $37.00 Herringbone Blazer I wish I never donated over a decade ago – but here’s the original (left) $3150.00 and a budget-friendly alternative $159.00 Shoes in Loafers – my favorite wear in suede can be bought here (left) $128.00 and here for a budget-friendly alternative (right) $69.00 – either way is a win win Quilted jackets in a variety of color: Original (left) $590.00 and budget-friendly option (right) $99.50   Featured image source from here – see my new arrivals pick 

Fashion: Coats and Jackets

Since we don’t really have a proper summer in San Francisco, it is very easy for the locals to shop for coats over the season and even wear them in the middle of October. Just this morning, two women were bundled up with gloves on and hoods tightly framing their faces. I get it, but I try to fight the urge to cloak myself just as well. So for the urge to wear a coat or simply shop for one – I have to say these are currently on my radar:  

Fashion: Fall 2018 Trends

Had I paid attention to the fact, fashion is a recycle of trends, I would have stored all of my clothes from the 90’s until it was back in style. But instead, I was too glad to get rid of it all – hating the style back then.  Well now, some of those pieces are back and strangely enough, have been added to my wish list for when we experience the San Francisco version of Fall, also known as Indian Summer.   {photo source}
