fall floral.

Is there such a thing as "Fall floral"?  I mean like a floral pattern that looks fall"ish"?

Well, I'm hoping that I can at least attempt to make this blouse Fall appropriate as we head deeper into the season.  Until then, though, and while the weather is still lovely, I'm going to wear this pretty blouse with my white jeans.  And yes, people, those are white jeans after labour day. If you remember this post, I didn't think I was a rebel but now I have a whole new perspective of myself.  And, well, I kinda like it.

Anyway, I'm signing off to go curl up on the couch with a cup of tea.  

See I told ya, I'm one crazy rebel. ;)

transition pieces.

I always find this time of year hard to dress for.  I think the key to making the transition easier is by having pieces that'll take you from the warmer weather into the colder weather by being able to add or subtract items based on the temperature.

Here is a look at the top 10 key pieces, in my opinion, to have for this transitional time of year.

transition pieces.

(1) Utility Jacket - The key to making the easiest transition is with layers.  A utility jacket (and in this case, a camo one) makes for a fun way to add layers and keep warm on those cold mornings.

(2) Scarf - This scarf you guys.  So cute.  It's actually got light pink polka dots on the black side.  Now a days, we seem to be about mixing patterns so I wouldn't think twice about pairing this with my camo utility jacket and a tee.

(3) Leather Jacket - This is another great layering piece.  Looks more chic than the utility jacket but still very edgy.

(4) Black Jeans - Black jeans for all seasons are really a must.  But for Fall, they really are a great staple.  Dress them up or dress them down.

(5) Black Leather Skirt - This skirt, you guys.  I'm obsessed.  I think it could easily be dressed for the warmer weather with no tights and some cute edgy sandals or booties.  And when the colder weather hits, pair it with tights, a cute sweater and statement necklace or scarf and you've got yourself a chic look.

(6)  Ankle Booties - These ankle booties are a must.  I actually wore my last pair out and had to invest in another pair this season.  They can be worn with shorts, pants, dresses and skirts.  The options are endless.

(7)  Two-Tone Watch - a two-toned watch is just a given, really.  It'll literally go with everything.

(8)  Statement Necklace - I love this statement necklace and it would look great paired with a dress or with just a simple tee and jeans outfit.

(9) Tee - A tee (in any color) is a great layering piece.  Add it to the utility or leather jacket, scarf, jeans and a booties and you've got yourself a great transitional outfit.

(10) Tote Bag - This bag seriously holds anything and everything.  And this color, perfect for any season, especially Fall.

So, yes, I know this look is more summer appropriate and not great for a September blog post, but, this is all I got.  Plus we've still being having some nice days in Vancouver as of late so in my books I'm gonna dress for summer until the weather calls it off.

Plus, I think the dress and purse could easily be transitioned into Fall very easily by adding tights, booties and a blazer.  Voila - super cute, Fall appropriate outfit ready for action!

Today marks the 2nd birthday of Pink & Pretty.

So happy birthday to this little blog of mine -
this blog and it's readers have been through a lot with me this past year and I couldn't be more thankful for that!


grey peplum.

Some rules are just made to be broken - one of those being that age old rule of not wearing white after labour day. But, seriously, does anyone really follow that anymore?!  Plus, I actually wore this outfit last week so, in theory, it was before labour day anyway.

So I guess I'm not really a rebel after all.

Oh well, one can dream....

month of outfits - august.

Oh, August, how I love thee!  Summer, is my very favourite time of year and yet, it always goes by so quickly.  C'est la vie, I guess....if I could slow down time, I would, but that doesn't seem to be an option.

Anyway, here's a look back at some of my outfits from August.
