5 Great Fall Style Outfit Ideas


1. The loose fitting shift dress in linen is a great addition to an all season wardrobe, add layers for fall like scarfs and cardigans, tights and boots, or in the warmer months, add flats, sandals or whatever you wish. Love the low braided bun! (Via Wit and Delight)




2. The Blossom Style Top, modest, figure flattering + feminine in any color  (Via Alisa Burke)

3. The Relaxed Style: loose fitting, drapery in leisure or sport style is immensely popular, and it’s no surprise because this look liberates women from the discomfort experienced in a great deal of women’s clothing –think squeezing waist-lines etc. Understated colors navy and olive green make this outfit sophisticated. (Via Death by Elocution)




4. Sporty – Riding pants with the classic New Balance sneaker in hip black, and a khaki jacket, chunky scarf -so chic and cozy! (Via Wachubuy)




5. Preppy Fall Cool -I like the Boho style as much as the next girl, but sometimes autumn just calls for a bit of classic minimalism, and I love this updated look. (Via Gurl.com)

Best of Cute Baby Girl Bathingsuits


Do you love the deliciousness that is a toddler in a bathing suit? For your cuteness needs for today! Naturally I love to see that handsome surfer taking a stroll along the beach, but one of my favorite sights is a baby in a swimming suit. Adorable!

Check out these trending cuties, as well as a great pattern by Ruby Jean Clothing (below) and our fabric selections for the cutest of suits!


Tara Hedger, The Fabric Fairy, Sweetness via Spoonflower, and Pink Woodland Creatures by Lydia Meiying, Spoonflower


Four Fun Designs by Lydia Meiying, via Spoonflower


Lydia is a favorite designer of mine, and she has a great selection, we are in love with her Chinese wood cut fabrics, particularly popular for the inclusion of tigers as voted by our jury of toddlers and primary school fashionistas!

Cute swimsuit fabric can be hard to come by, depending on your skill level you need to get a pattern that will work for your suit, allover scattered is great for the novice. So far, the best places I have found are Spoonflower, you can order many of the artist designed fabric in a swimsuit appropriate material (sport lycra). However, Fabric Fairy has an entire section of swimsuit fabric so it’s easy to find, and lots of fun patterns as well.

how to style a book shelf

here are a few amazing bookshelves featuring books, of course, pictures, sculptures, decorative pieces, treasured finds, with the perfectly imperfect amount of things, space and staggered or neatly stacked composition..

so declutter that clutter, and artfully arrange…


via bungalow interiors


Decide on a color theme…..here we have natural colors, white and blue, add natural objects like stones or shells sparingly..and lots of white space….


via thoughts from alice


Don’t throw out all the old books, treasure the most attractive, or sentimentally meaningful, look for single bookends at flea markets, final sales and thrift shops…


via cait pretty and fun


Embrace color, mix and match titles, add a small ceramic piece in brights or softer colors…a small painting…



apartment 34


Beautiful coral, metal sculpture in gold tones, whimsical elements, staggered heights, and shapes make this a patterned stage for enjoyment



via centsational  girl


Paper the back of a boring shelf, or paint it a bright or rich color. Note the use of transparent materials, lattice vase, glass and sculpture with negative space. Air plants make a hardy and beautiful addition to your curated shelving. Classic, Asian and chic modern come together to make a mesmerizing tableaux.




An office set up that makes you want to go to work at your desk..love the neutrals + metallics + cozy blankets




Make the most of white space, and vary your book arrangements, mixing stacking with rows, add textures, wicker, stone, porcelain and wood make for an interesting vignette.


via emily henderson


Stone, metal, wicker and beautiful wood sculpted by nature. The designer has added air plants, as well as modern + rustic style, giving the space a gallery look.


via instagram

An eclectic look —a shelf  can hold your prized editions, art collections: combine antiques, natural elements like feathers, carefully selected stone items or shells. Add textile, wicker, sculpture leaving some staggered space between…..for a touch of green, usually succulents, air plants + cactus stand up best to these kind of arrangements…

Trending Fashion Look Book 2016

I must say when one of my friends asked me to do a trending style look book feature on the blog, I had a little trouble locating pictures of truly beautiful couture that was not worn by underfed sulking teen models. My other issue was finding images that were from other times of the year besides fashion week.

This look book once again features style for women, with the idea in mind that one does not need to forget one’s pants in manner of Beyonce to be glamorous. Sorry B, but you are a grown lady and should try pants. xxoo


Trending Skirts….


love her @studded-hearts.com.jpg


Well, this lady has style! I think she rather forgot her tights when packing and opted for her boyfriend’s trouser socks, but cause she is so delightful it totally works as does her eyewear. I am a sucker for French street style meets crazy art teacher + librarian. Hope those shoes are not too pinchy.



Street style for real.jpg

I would be friends with her just because she wears white sneakers with velvet skirts and does not need to be all exposed to be awesome. She probably knows a lot about Bauhaus architecture or some such.



street style seconds.jpg

OMG! Forever 21 meets awesome Siouxie and the Banshees style. Special thanks to this young lady for her natural look and unbashed adoration of plaids. Watch out for tram!!!



natalieoffduty blogspot.jpg

Okay, of all the women so far, she has it the most perfectly perfect. Chiffon skirt + leather jacket so lovely. And so pleased to see natural looks prevailing.





I completely had this skirt in high school. She is so glamorous.



kate spade plaid.jpg

That’s a Kate Spade skirt. I am in love, if one can be with a skirt, which I am certain is a possibility.





Monochrome classics –I just do not like the silly shoes as they seem quite wobbly and rather red light district, but otherwise this is a great outfit. As much as I am loathe to admit it, there are many moments when high heels can make you look stupid or in the very least terribly mistaken of the terrain, rather than sexy.


Trending: Fabulous Dresses


Harpers Bazaar Fashion week St style.jpg


This is from Harper’s Bazaar Fashion week street style feature. I have dreams about really fantastic non existent dresses and other style items, and I swear this is just like one of the featured fancies in my dreams. And the purse, and the nails. So lovely!



Goldenrod Burberry @ Vogue.jpg


Burberry continually surprises me with the richness of their seasonal color schemes and texture.




Gucci borrows a little from the imagination of India. Ironically, I am quite certain you can find something of equal beauty for a fraction of the cost from a seamstress or dressmaker in India.



Valentino @ vogue.jpg

Valentino…loving the amazing muted corals, greens, and whites and patterning.
