Autumnal Favorites

There are times when I look back on old posts and try to remember what possessed me to wear such an odd outfit and then there are times when I look back and fall in love with a style all over again. Here are some of my autumnal favorites from 2009 & 2010...

It's quite hilarious seeing my bright red hair side-by-side with my natural light brown. I still can't believe I was crazy enough to dye it last fall!! I think 2010 Maria was quite adventurous.

I'm currently on a Wisconsin, thrifting, road trip with my new friends Amanda and John! We're all looking for great finds to stock up our shops. I'm thinking mine will be officially open the second week of October. Don't forget, you have one more day to enter my Salvaged Strawberry giveaway courtesy of Amanda!

Yours,

Hey, what'd ya know! I'm actually back with another outfit post less than a week later! Woohoo. It's cool when I can stick to my goals. I feel all accomplished, organized and what not. Cole has been amazing finding what little spare time he has to help me out. He's the best darling a girl could ask for.

This is another outfit I've had on the back burner, just waiting for cooler weather to wear. It's my 20s-living-in-the-70s inspired look. Of course I had to throw a beret into the mix. When the weather gets the least bit cool, you know I can't contain my love of berets any longer and this mocha beauty is my new favorite.

Dear Creatures Autumn 2011

Dear Creatures Autumn 2011
Bianca and Rob kill me every season. I always have an endless list of must-own items from each Dear Creatures collection and this autumn is pure torture with their amazing pussy bow blouses, tweed blazers and regimental coats. It's times like these that I feel the bitter sting of an empty wallet...le sigh.

I'm afraid of everyone

I'm afraid of everyone
Do I dare say I'm back? I know I've said it before then disappeared again, but I'm truly hoping that this time around I'm right. If I can at least post an outfit once a week, I'll be a very happy girl. The cooler, most-glorious weather we've been having in the Twin Cities should definitely help accomplish my goal. There's no season I cherish more than autumn! It just suits my personality and style so well and to wear tights again is a great pleasure.

I've been dying to style this blouse ever since the lovely people at Ruche were kind enough to send it my way! I'm not sure what I love most, the beautiful crochet collar and front panel or the fact that the name includes my favorite dreamland, Avonlea. I considered it an act of providence (to quote Anne) that I accidentally received this Delightful Dozen skirt around the same time. Even though I had already left the group by the time it arrived, it was a nice surprise to receive one last item, especially one I had been waiting to style for some time.

Autumn- three catalogs & a lookbook

Picnik collage
Urban Outfitters' fall installment makes me think of the best part of 90's fashion...grunge. Plus, I just adore Edie.

Madewell made my day when I received their first catalog! The shoot with Dree is just the awesome blend of menswear that I love.

Ruche's latest lookbook, The Industry, has plenty of office-ready ensembles that would fit perfectly on the weekend, too.

Anthropologie catalogs are always a feast for the eyes and their September issue has that wonderful eastern-european-bohemian look I find intriguing.

Any lookbooks or catalogs that you recommend?
