Dare To “POP”

 

Let’s face it, fall can be dreary, and we all know how a little colour can brighten up any day and any wardrobe.  Now is the time to mix and match, and try new colours and patterns.  We have been adding fun aztec and navajo print scarves and ponchos to our S’mores Collection all month!

smores collection 10Scarves and hats are the perfect accessory for this season, and they just happen to be practical as well!  Our advice for this time of year…”don’t try to match everything to your coat or outfit, start with one or two neutral or solid coloured items and then start to add bright prints and fun patterns.”

We love how blogger Jen from Prairie Girl In The City wears a rich, wine coloured dress with matching infinity scarf and layers it with a bright flower print sweater.

Our favourite scarves and ponchos in the shop this fall have been from Jackson Rowe, a Vancouver based company and they are ohh so soft and have the greatest colours and prints.  They will make fall your favourite season.

Falling For Fall…

Usually I look forward to fall in the last heat wave of summer, I start to feel all hot and sticky and get sick of barbecues everyday and not using the oven because it’s just too hot.  Then after a few freezing days and nights and meals that take forever to prepare and bake I am sorry I ever complained and miss summer.  But this year is sooo different, it has been abnormally hot for weeks, I had a few days of wearing my new coat and layering up and then I had to put my air conditioner on to drive a few blocks, and dig around my closet for my dresses and flip-flops.  So now I can say I have had a great summer, and I feel I am ready for fall, not for winter, yet, but I can handle fall.  We had the greatest farewell s’mores party for a lovely girl who has worked in the shop and on Farminista for a few years and these girls know how to make fall look amazing, take a peek…

 

Rose prints are sneaking up everywhere in the shop this season, we see them on sweaters, coats and even kimono’s.

rose_kimonoWe love the vintage inspired look of floral prints, there is something nostalgic about the changing seasons and the memories of dressing warm as a child or with a Grandparent have a strong tie to our reasons for living here and embracing the upcoming cold with excitement.
