Winter Wear

Full-shot    HairClose-upBagClose-up2

In light of the snow storm that just hit (though not as badly as we expected) I decided to go with an icy blue sweater and some snowy print leggings today as I got ready to head over to the library to do some homework. I didn’t want to be too washed out though, so I threw on a dark colored scarf to add a little contrast. And of course, I wouldn’t be getting anywhere in this snow without some trusty boots!

Sweater: AG Frosty Party

Snow at Last

Pippa and Clarisse Pippa2   Boots ClarissePippa and Clarisse 3Pippa 3

There was no snow to be seen around here for Christmastime, but I was very excited to see a sea of white when I looked out my window this morning! Pippa was brave enough to venture out with me for a little while, but we forgot our mittens and soon our cold fingers were begging to go in and warm up by the fireplace (but not before some pictures of course)! She is settling back in at home quite nicely, and is bubbling with ideas for the Clarisse’s Closet Etsy shop- can’t wait to do some more sewing!

Our sister Pippa has been in France for the past year doing a school program and finally came home! Camille and I waited outside to greet her and could hardly stand to wait. It’s been fun to hear about her stories and adventures while she was abroad, but we are very glad to have her back. I’ll share more photos of her arrival soon, but first we will let her unpack and tell us all about her trip!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Christmas is my favorite holiday, as I love spending time with my family and friends eating sweets, exchanging gifts, and of course singing Christmas carols! Camille and I hosted a party this weekend and enjoyed decorating the tree and singing our favorite carols with some of our friends. I even made myself a fancy new dress for the occasion! I hope you all enjoy the holidays and hopefully a little break from school and/or work to spend some time with your family and friends too.

Bundled and Bright

I’ve been waiting all summer to get to wear this fun bright coral jacket! Now I’m ready to head out into the chilly fall weather with my jacket, knee socks, and wool hat. It’s one of those sunny (but cold) days, so bright (yet warm) clothes seem appropriate. I’m a little late but….

Welcome Fall!

Pretty Pretty Pinterest

Full-shot Hair Necklace Shoes Close-up

This outfit is entirely formulated according to what Pinterest tells me is in this season. According to my recent feeds, a collared shirt under a sweater, big jewelry, and a tutu skirt = the recipe for fall 2014: exhibit A, B, and C. I went a little bit against the grain with a short-sleeve sweater, but polka dots also seem to fit in with what I’ve been seeing, and I just love it with the chambray shirt. Here’s to being “pin-spired!”

Sweater-tee: CarolineAugustDesign
Chambray shirt: KateLaurenDesigns
Skirt: AG Winter Magic

Necklace: EverdayDollwear

Crop and Roll

Cropped pants are perfect for transitioning into the fall, as they won’t leave you shivering at a breeze like shorts but don’t feel as heavy as full-length pants. I was mimicking the cuffed pants by rolling up my sleeves too, and this lightweight vest is the perfect layer for a little more of a complete look. I took the idea of a “messy bun” to the extreme today- but when you have to run off to class, it’s a handy look when you don’t have time to fuss!

Calm Before the Storm

Full-shotHair Backpack Shoes Close-up

Despite how sunny and pleasant it looks in these pictures, I kid you not when I say that moments after stepping inside, I looked out the window to a torrential downpour and a thunderstorm! Perhaps the weather was mimicking that feeling of the first week of school, when everything seems calm and manageable, and before you know it you hardly have a moment to breathe!
Although my backpack was a gift and is not available on Etsy, here are some of my favorite backpack finds if you haven’t picked yours out yet:

Where’s the Party?

Close-up2 Full-shot Hat Shoes Close-up

Today I had one of those “all dressed up with nowhere to go” moments, but I was having too much fun getting dressed so I just went with it. Luckily I have all you lovely people as my excuse to wear whatever I feel like, so here you have it: a late-summer party outfit for the event of your imagination! Perhaps a day-time wedding reception? Or a visit to the horse track? Maybe even just a lunch out with friends? Whatever the occasion- a maxi dress, cardigan, and a straw hat is the recipe for quite a stylish outfit indeed.

Dress: AstoriaAvenueApparel 
Cardigan: Clarisse’s Closet

Pinstripe and Plaid

Close-up Full-shot Hair Bracelet Close-up2

Playing with color combos is always fun, but I decided to mix it up a bit with some patterns today too. A subtle pinstripe is easy to mix with other bolder patterns without being too hard on the eyes, so I went with this gingham top to add a mix of color and pattern to the outfit. It’s hard to believe September is just around the corner and full-length pants have come back into my life! I love shorts and skirts, but a nice pair of colored pants and jeans are wardrobe staples that I dearly miss over the steamy hot summer.
