Ready2Fall

It’s August, but the Sun didn’t get the memo yet, so it pretty much still feels like July outside. And I can’t seem to be able to enjoy it anymore. It may be way to soon for this, but I already started dreaming about Fall: Fall weather, Fall colors, Fall layers, cuddling beneath warm blankets, drinking hot chocolate and tea … everything sounds amazing to me right now. And the rain, oh how I miss the rainy days!

I can’t wait to start upgrading my Fall wardrobe in the following months, so here are some ideas that I wanted to share with you today. For more looks like these ones, feel free to check my Pinterest inspiration board.

I wish you all a wonderful week darlings and I’ll be back in a couple of days. I would love to hear your thoughts so feel free to leave a comment. I’d better start working already. Much love, O.

Fashion Crush – Pleated Skirts

With the launch of Christopher Kane’s collection for Versus, this trend really started kicking-off early last year and kept getting stronger over the fall and winter of 2010. Now with just a couple of weeks apart from 2012, we are still into this trend no matter if we’re talking about the mini “school-girl-like” pleated skirt, the maxi version or even the midi length one – a true statement piece for fall and winter days.

The variety of lengths and textures, only confirm this item as a must, being so functional and working in so many combinations.

There are so many beautiful such skirts that it was quite hard to make a selection and what I finally did was to split my choices into two, designer choices first and most affordable Asos options second  :
