hits of the autumn, part 1

Photobucket
from Milk Teeths The ultimate style+travel photo, and I liked that blouse so much I bought it from her store!

I generally aim for a high degree of original content on this blog, but I really enjoyed rounding up my favourite summer outfits from some of my favourite bloggers in September, and couldn't resist doing an autumn roundup too. However, I've gone a bit overboard, so I'm splitting this post in two. This week you get the vibrant colours and sunny days outfits that most inspired me, next week a few more from the more wintry side of autumn. Since I featured my winter coat last post, and am basically wearing it all the time now, I guess autumn is truly over, in London at least...

I Want Your Dress:
I want your dress
from Yeye! Style Blog and Resplendent Tranquility

This was the year the Alexa Chung collection for Madewell had us all pining for black velvet dresses with little collars. Seeing Izzie's vintage example, I was inspired to spend hours of my life trawling Etsy for weeks, instead of spending too much money, and I'm very happy with the result. I also love her styling of it.

You can't see it well in the picture, but Emily from Resplendent Tranquility's dress has a pattern of chickadees! How perfect for autumn. I skulked around in H&M for quite a while in search of this, but fortunately for my budget they didn't have my size. And I could never have mustered up such a perfect location for it anyway!

Coloured Denim:

from Orchid Grey and My Little Fashion Diary

After I bought my red Zara jeans I was pleased to see other bloggers following me on the coloured denim idea! ; ) Joking aside, red and yellow are probably the best autumn colours around, and I love the difference in the way they've been styled: sort of grunge-folk on Julie and classic all the way on Emilie. And both with truly great shoes...

Caitlin in Yellow

from Waking Life

I honestly think Caitlin from Waking Life is one of the most stylish girls in blogland, and she made me doubly despairing of my own dressing abilities all fall by consistently wearing my favourite colour so perfectly. If you don't know her blog already, you should: head over for one perfectly put together look after another, and most of them taken before she goes to work, which just boggles my mind!

I Just LIke These Ones:
i just like these ones
from Waking Life and Birds Closet

More perfect looks with oatmeal and red, and also demonstrating that sometimes hair is the best accessory. Well, hair and a swallow-shaped brooch, if you can swing it.

Keeping Cozy:

from Wish Wish Wish and Hannah and Landon

Carrie's yellow coat set me back ages in my own coat shopping. I couldn't come to grips with the fact that I wasn't going to find the very one and make it mine.
Hannah's sweater looks warm too, but what really keeps me cozy is the picture itself. Taken during Canadian Thanksgiving, it reminded me in all the best possible ways of my favouritest of favourite holidays.

Any favourites among these? Or what were your favourite colours/looks this fall?

I love the yellows red and oatmeals although strangely I have gone off on a pastel trip just recently.. maybe I am trying to blend in with the fog?

SG said...

That is a nice looking pick up van.

Terri said...

ooh, I like the oatmeal & braids.

I've been searching for a pair of red jeans, but by the time I find the ones that fit the way I want, the trend is likely to be over.

Anthea said...

Love your picks. I am such a huge Bird's Closet fan that it's not even funny!

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

Aw, thanks for including me in your autumn inspiration round up :) I wore that chickadee dress yesterday. Gosh, I loooove it. That's a bummer you weren't able to find it. They put out a blouse version, too. The print is a wee bit smaller, but just as sweet.

Red and yellow are such perfect autumn colors. I like all these photos very much! I'll definitely be doing some new blog visiting as a result of this post.

eagle-eye-cherry said...

I think we have the same preferences, I like all the pictures you chose with their colours and outfits.

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

@ Emily: I might go back and see if any hit the sales racks! I didn't fancy the blouse so much... I'm such a dress girl!

Zarna said...

i love all the looks, but im especially digging the mustard pants - i've really been wanting a pair myself!

Kinsey Michaels said...

all of the mustard yellow looks are great!! that color happens to look terrible on me, but it's perfect when i can incorporate it into an accessory or pair of shoes.

Heather Fonseca said...

Those are some very cute looks that you've rounded up. I think my favorites are the last two photos. I love the yellow jacket paired with the brown polka dot dress - those aren't colors I would usually put together but they looked wonderful that way. I would wear the outfit next to her in a heartbeat. I too am often really inspired by my fellow bloggers, and we all appreciate the recognition, which is why I wanted to say "thank you" for stopping by my blog and leaving a message!

Love,
Heather
