Macie in Grey

IMG_4400  IMG_4396IMG_4389IMG_4416IMG_4403

Macie was trying out one of our most popular custom hat choices (grey bowler with blush trim) as well as this adorable new dress I picked up from Closet4Chloe, and I thought she looked so stylish I had to give her her own post. Macie really pulls off the girly-meets-edgy look, wouldn’t you say? I love the mix of the delicate lace on the dress with a studded leather purse.

I’ll only be taking a few more hat orders before Christmas, so be sure to get yours in soon if you want it in time for the holidays!

A is for Autumn Accessories (and Apples)

IMG_3859IMG_3848IMG_3873IMG_3863IMG_3850

Today’s look was built around the quintessential fall accessories- a denim jacket, cloche hat, something flannel, and a pair of boots. While a trip to the apple orchard wasn’t in the plans for the day, this is exactly the kind of outfit I’d wear to go apple picking, and wearing it makes me want to go! I’m not sure which is my favorite part of apple picking- actually picking the apples or eating the delicious desserts that Pippa makes with them afterwards… we will have to plan a trip to our local orchard soon!

Jacket: AG Coconut’s Best Friend

September’s Swan Song

So long September, tomorrow’s October! If you haven’t already unpacked your flannels, sweaters, and boots, now is the time. Well, at least for us here in the Northern U.S. and everywhere else that is blessed with fabulous cool weather and the smell of autumn leaves during this time of year. I hadn’t made a new “Clarisse Original” for myself in a while, and I’m not sure what inspired me to go with a swan for the sweater, but thank you to whatever it was because I’m pretty in love with it.

What I’m Wearing:
Sweater and Collar: Clarisse Originals
Skirt: @agmarket on Instagram
Boots: AG Saige’s Meet

Easy Breezy

It occurred to me today that I don’t often wear my hair completely down without even a bobby pin or a hat to top it off, so I decided to go au naturel with the hair today. It was a little challenging with the strong breeze (but who can complain about that when it’s been in the 90’s this week), but a few flyaways never caused any harm, right? I kept things simple with my outfit too, just focusing on a couple accessories and a simple color palette, but making sure I use some of my favorite summer items before it’s too late!

What I’m Wearing:
Top: Kit’s School Skirt Set 
Skirt: La Poupee Bijoux

Nautical Vibes

IMG_2476 IMG_2505 IMG_2491 IMG_2520 IMG_2504

I couldn’t wait to put together an outfit my new birthday purse, and this hand-me-down dress seemed like the perfect match! My friend @acuppateawithag on Instagram was recently clearing out her closet (like we all need to do once in a while) and I got this adorable nautical-inspired dress from her along with a couple other cute things. And what’s better to go with a blue and white striped dress than an anchor bracelet? You’ll never guess what this upcycled bracelet started as: a boot strap! One of my recent eBay purchases came with a pair of boots a few sizes too big for my little feet, but the decorative faux leather straps with gold hoop connectors were just begging to be made into something new, so I threw on a little anchor charm I had lying around, and voila! A “new” bracelet!

What I’m Wearing:
Dress: Yaojujube (c/o @acuppateawithag)
Purse: Kate Spade (Pink one is on sale!)
Belt: OG “Belt it Up” (Similar Here)
Shoes: Springfield Collection

Out-of-Towners

IMG_1520-001 IMG_1527 IMG_1561 IMG_1554 IMG_1565

Pippa and I spent the weekend visiting some friends, and decided to take some photos there since the weather was so glorious! Sunshine and mid-70’s, what more can you ask for on a June day? We finally broke out our summer wardrobe and put away our winter clothes last week, so as you can see we had fun accessorizing with our favorite summer items like my shell necklace and sandals and Pippa’s nautical bag and straw fedora. I’m also thinking the hair-wrap bun will be my new go-to ‘do this summer because it’s cute and simple and keeps my hair off my neck and out of the way. Would anyone like to see a tutorial for the style?

Light Layers

Full-shot Close-up Belt  ShoesClose-up2

This outfit has a little bit of wishful thinking involved because it says “spring is coming!” much more than it appears to be by looking out the window at the foot or two of snow. But I’ll be fine with a coat right? I love playing around with layers for Spring, and something like this barely-there vest takes a simple tee to an “outfit” especially when topped with a pop-of-color belt. Add jeans and some cute shoes and you’re good to go!

Galentine’s Day

If you are not familiar with the show Parks and Recreation, then you are missing out on a fabulous tradition started by the show’s leading lady Leslie Knope: Galentine’s Day. Celebrated the day before Valentine’s Day, this day is dedicated to celebrating all the “gals” in your life, and I have to say it’s one of my favorite “holidays!” Having my sister Pippa back home made it extra special this year, and our friends Elle and Daisy were able to join us to celebrate. Happy Galentine’s Day to all the ladies out there, and happy Valentine’s Day tomorrow!

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!

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!”
