Actually, It Is Easy Being Green

This season there’s one color I can’t help but see everywhere I look, and that’s green. Green of all hues and shades, super saturated and pleasingly pastel. From home interiors to fashion to everywhere in between, this color that’s usually making a departure come autumn is all of a sudden making a play to stick around!

Lovely Loafers

Loafers-1-Design-Crush

Sunstone Loafer

They’ve been creeping into our wardrobes for the last few fall/winter seasons, but I’m convinced this is truly the year of the loafer. From casual to preppy to modern and everything in between, this incredibly comfortable style of footwear is a great match for jeans, skirts, and dresses. And as temperatures continue to drop through the next few months lots of options will even pair nicely with tights. Are you hopping on the loafer bandwagon or are you already there?

Fall Wish List

Fall-15-Wish-List-1-Design-Crush

1. E Hoops  2. Quilted Baseball Hat  3. Lace Up Knee High Military Boots
4. Openweave Scarf in Scottsdale Plaid

It seems as though summer knew just the right moment to exit stage left this year. Autumn weather showed up this past Saturday, ironically on time considering my friend Andrew hosted an End of Summer party Friday evening. This season I’m focused on comfort – warm knits, flat shoes, and plenty of plaids – and I’m on the lookout for a great trench or anorak to help with layering and a pair of ankle length skinny cords.

Pikkpack

Pickpakk-1-Design Crush

 

Pikkpack is leather footwear that you assemble yourself. There are only 3 pieces of material – the sole, the upper, and the shoelaces. And because the wearer is involved in the making the shoes can be shipped in lighter, smaller packages using less material and conserving natural resources. Pikkpack just launched a rubber soled version and the ability to customize your pair with color.

Beautiful Wears

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about quality over quantity in all areas of life, which got me thinking about the contents of my closet. Don’t be fooled, I’m not hopping on the capsule wardrobe train anytime soon. But I am planning on thinking more about where and under what conditions my clothing is made and purchasing accordingly.

The weather has finally jumped above freezing for more than a day, and I’m ready to say sayonara to winter. My spring wish list is admittedly a bit optimistic, I’m sure I’ll be layering plenty of pieces and still wearing tights – but a girl can hope!
