Warm-Up With Comfy Boot Socks

So it's been a while since the last time I posted but it's been pretty crazy around here (more to come about that in a future post) but I'm back and excited to share with you my new favourite item that I can't stop wearing! Take a look at these adorable and comfortable boot socks that I found. We got quite a bit of snow this weekend and I couldn't wait put these socks on, curl up with my cat, Rooster, and take a nap. The good thing about these socks is that they look cute while you're lounging around the house but they also look super cute peeking out the top part of your boots.

Poncho Libre!

m- Umm...sorry about the promise of the belt with the poncho - it was big MISTAKE! Sometimes it is a good idea to take a picture to validate that your fashion idea actually looks reasonable on you. In this case, my well intentioned idea it was inspired by a Mexican wrestler and cowboy combination. That being said, I like wearing a poncho and see this item getting a lot of use this season.

Hobbit Fashion

m-I bought a poncho several weeks ago and have been waiting for the weather to change to debut my new item. When I brought my poncho home, my family commented that I looked like Bilbo Baggins! So I am attempting to style it in a way that is less, “hobbitish,” and more style savvy. It has not been an easy task, but here are my styling tips: midi pencil skirts look great. I would love to pair this look with a bootie, but my 5ft 4’ frame looked particularly close to the ground. I prefer this with a skinny jean, high boots or bootie. I tried not to break up the leg line with black boots because the volume from the cape and fitted calf made my upper legs look like sausages, so tan or cognac boots are a better choice for me. I am going to belt my poncho, so that my family does not think I am wearing a Snuggie and I think that it looks best with a long sleeve peeking out (then people can be assured that I am not wearing a real blanket!) Photos to come. Here are a few pics that I am using for my inspiration:

Chilly Weather? Warm Up With a Poncho!

I admit that ponchos have been a little bit of a mystery to me. I guess I always thought of them as, well, a blanket! M and I are really petite so ponchos can be a little bit tough to style. You don't want to get lost in them, or make you look like you have no shape (poncho paired with a cute belt can help with this!) However, they do cover a multitude of sins and Thanksgiving dinner will be on it's way before you know it! Here are a few of our favourites.

Summer Nights

m- Summer is coming to a close. My littles are getting ready to return to school (not so little, sigh...). We could not let the summer come to an end without a few more BBQs with friends. As the nights become longer and the temperature drops, we still want to be outside comfortably. White denim still feels summery without the shiver of bare legs. Simple formula: white skinnies, denim shirt, leopard belt and my favourite pink earrings. What are you wearing to your next get together?

Going Shopping Today! Do you want to come?

m - I have the day to myself and I am heading into virtual land to pick up a few items for the fall. After looking at many magazines and websites, I have narrowed down what I am looking for. A few trends have resurfaced from last year and some cute additions.
1) Suede A line mini- Thank you, Taylor Swift, for bringing this back. This stylish starlet was out and about in her suede mini, last week. Although Taylor looks great in her very short skirt, I am on the hunt for a modest length that will permit things like: sitting, crossing legs, etc.
2) Lace up flats - This trend is everywhere! I am happy to see that flats continue to have a place in the fashion marketplace.
3) Soft striped dress - what, I found this one for $5! Buy now, it is cheaper then a pumpkin latte and will last longer.
4) Solid Cardigan - boyfriend shape, great for layering.
5) Sleeveless top with turtleneck - sounds like an oxymoron, right? I must be a little ahead of the trend because most of these sweaters are in the designer range and start at $550. If you find one, grab it, I am predicting this trend is going to be big with the mass markets in the coming months.
