October is finally here, and winter is reminding us of its presence. Though it isn’t super-chilly yet, it’s a good time to start knitting for winter. I don’t think there’s a better way to relax than to curl up on the sofa with a cup of coffee, a rewarding knit, and your favorite shows queued up on Netflix. With that in mind, I chose to feature wintery accessories this week. We all deserve a new pair of gloves and a cute little scarf, so Lovelace, Purlace, and Lune get to shine in the spotlight until October 15th! As I am still a bit under the weather (what is fall without a flu that lasts for two weeks and counting), we’ll start off with warm fall looks from last year. These two looks are not only comfy and cozy, but also my favorite fall styles featuring this week’s product picks.
I don’t usually go for pencil skirts, but for this look, I wanted to try. Pencil skirts create a lovely silhouette, but can be challenging to function in. If made a bit too narrow, like I did here, one will need to consider walking again. This look is really cute, though, and if the skirt were comfier, I would gladly wear this out.
I paired my not-so-comfy pencil skirt with a corduroy blazer, my forest green Lune, and black Purlace gloves. This first stop of our warm fall looks is perfect for running errands, and I actually do wear my Lune a lot with this autumn coat. I love the way the stockinette drapes, and the shape makes Lune easy to wear.
This skirt, by the way, was discarded, and turned into a waist corset. Check out the results of the operation here!
Some of you might remember a dreadful incident from last fall. I was leaving a fabric store via an escalator, got lost in thought thus losing concentration, and BAM! my dress got caught in the ascending stairs. Charming cut me loose, but my dress seemed pretty much ruined. Luckily, I sew. It took me an hour or so to salvage the mangled dress, and the results were pretty awesome. A long dress turned short, gained long sleeves, and even got a bit of lace!
For this look, I paired the transformed dress with my purple Lune, and fingerless Lovelace gloves. I love this look, though for going out, I’d opt for black tights and warmer footwear. This look would totally work for shopping trips and casual lunches!
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s warm fall looks. I’m hoping to feel well enough to take new outfit photos soon!
Until next time.
