Adieu Summer - Layering Skirt over Dress






It's the first day of fall, and I am already feeling the crisp autumn chill.

No longer can I just frolic around in a silk dress. Additional source of warmth must be added.


Enter a textured maxi circle skirt.

Often, the added warmth is enough to take the edge off.

Plus, it's the prefect the bridge from summer to fall.





It's also the perfect season for gold accents.


These beautiful vintage Chanel pieces are the perfect accents to a simple outfit. Check out these beautiful gold pins on ShopBop.


A pair of mules finishes the outfit perfectly.

This outfit can be made even more weather resistant by layering a scarf and a jacket. It will for sure make appearances on my other social media platforms.

What are some of your favourite fall fashion tricks?

Black and White

As promised, the first outfit styled out from my reaping at the Jennyfleur Loves sale.

Sometimes the I come home with the most inconspicuous item from a load and it ends up being my favourite piece.

Like this sheer Cheap Monday sheer maxi skirt. For similar one, see here.

I have chosen to add it to this amazingly embellished white bodycon dress by Ciel.

I feel the contrast of this outfit gives it so much drama.

By the way, I love my new solarium. Provides the proper amount of refuge to the cold winter days for me to play dress up that would suit the warmer months.

Sometimes, I like to overdose on one extreme. Take this outfit for instance, it is as girly and soft as it will possibly get.

soft chiffon fabrics with lace and a giant flower? and a pearl necklace? Yeah, it's pretty much the epitome of romantic girly.

Silk Obakki Floral Kimono

Noticing a trend? I love kimonos, they are the "it" item in my closet right now.

For this spring, it is a guarantee that I will reach for them time and time again.

The feeling of being hugged by amazing fabrics of the finest silk is an incredible feeling. This whole outfit is from Obakki. The craftsmanship of the garment is incredible.

Sometimes, after a long week, all you need is walk around town. Especially when the maxi skirt offers so much movement with each step I take.

Soon, we happen upon this amazing graffiti wall. The colours are the most amazing shades of pink.

Artistry is found all around us.

The innocent whimsy of the girl with the dandelion makes me yearn for summer.

I wish I too can release a flurry of life with the release of one breath.
