• 5 Things

    Sitting at my desk in the shop today, trying to come up with a great "first blog post" and thinking about my favorite fashion bloggers.  So, while sitting here amongst a growing to-do list, order forms and lots and lots of pretty shop items, I decided to come up with 5 things I love currently.  There are so many great things about fall - the colour of the leaves, yummy comfort foods, Thanksgiving with family, Hallowe'en, etc. - so here you have my 5 things I am currently loving about fall.

    1. Scarves


    My love of scarves is nothing new.  In fact, I have a small  excessive collection of scarves, from the whispy spring to the chunky hand knit variety.  For some reason I can't help but add a new scarf or two to my collection.  Right now I am really feeling the circle scarf.  Easy to throw on to add texture and interest to an outfit.  

     

    2. Statement Necklaces

     

    Sometimes when the fall weather arrives, I find myself falling into a black/grey/brown rut.  I mean head to toe, monochromatic neutrals.  This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but when your wardrobe resembles the perpetual grey fall skies, a little colour can do wonders to your mood.  Statement necklaces give that boost of colour and brings a freshness to a classic sweater dress.


    3. Barefoot Venus' Mustard Bath

    After raking leaves or taking a windy jog along the lake, I like to come home to relax my muscles in a nice, hot bath.  Just smelling the eucalyptus, rosemary and wintergreen after sprinkling the mixture into the running water makes me immediately calm and warm.  I have a feeling the Mustard Bath will come in handy during the inevitable cold season catches up to me (knock on wood!).


    4. Great Fall Jackets

     

    Anyone else feel like they live in their fall jacket?  Personally, I look for the pattern, colour and little details of a jacket that are going to make me look forward to putting it on every time I go to leave the house.   Also a big fan of a great lining and a little wool to keep out the chilly gusts.

     

    5. A Fabulous Hat


    Keeping the warmth inside, avoiding cold ears and avoiding wind blown hair are all great reasons for having a really great fall hat.  This is often a feat for myself as hats generally don't agree with my curls (hello hat head), but when I do find the perfect one, I covet thee.



    So there you have it - my 5 Things!  Oh, wait one more...perhaps as an accessory to your accessories?


    Can't forget your warm drink.  A must for those trail walks and hikes to the beach to make sure it's still there.   Anyone know where I can find a Pumpkin Spice Latte? Mmmmm....  :)
