Wardrobe Diaries: Spring Meets Fall

I am still coming to terms with the fact that I miss out on Fall this year. If you've been following my blog then you may remember me mentioning summer fashion fatigue from as earlier as June. They don't call Fall, fashion's favourite season for nothing. All those layers and outerwear, knits, furs and leathers are enough to make any girl swoon. 

Sadly for me, I left the Northern Hemisphere a few days before the end of summer and arrived here in the Southern Hemisphere just as spring picked up. Instead of abandoning all my newly acquired cold weather wear, I decided to bring them along with me to style into my spring wardrobe. The classic spring colour combo of mint and blush contrast perfectly with edgier leather pieces from Fall. Add to that some red lipstick and a velvet bow and there you have my perfect spring meets fall outfit. 

A big thank you to Boticca for sending me this beautiful leather clutch. When it comes to fashion and design, there's nothing I love more than discovering new talented up and coming designers. Through their online shop, Boticca gives me the chance to scour the world for beautiful unique pieces with the knowledge that each purchases will help aid an independant designer to be one step closer to their dream. Now for the fun part, make sure you pop by on friday for a chance to win a beautiful bracelet by french designer Mademoiselle Felee courtesy of Boticca

Hahah, cosmetics are indeed much easier to buy. But easier is very rarely better.
Anyways, wonderful outfit. The skirt gives you an edgy look, in contrast to the mint and soft top.

I love the clutch and def need to check out bottica and the shoes? 9west? They look like Jimmy choo. I did a post a few months ago on navigating forever 21. What I've realized is that depending on where you live the selection varies, so a lot of times people will say what it is I am wearing they didn't see it in the stores. Michigan Avenue is def an advantage when it comes to shopping at that place.
