Paying Homage To Fall in Sangria and Tweed

Although some parts of the country are still enjoying summer's heat, Denver already had the first Autumn snowfall. Before the leaves are permanently swept away or covered by snow for good, I thought it would be a perfect time to pay homage to my favorite time of year.

One of the reasons I love this time of year is the fabulous fashions, which may be a shallow reason for some, but I am a fashion blogger ;)   The fashion world flourishes this time of year with beautiful textures and rich colors of the season.  From hats, boots, faux fur, leather, tweed, chunky sweaters, and cozy scarves, there are so many options during the autumn months.

Date Night in Lace, Husband Jeans, & Purple Peep Toes

After 21 years of marriage, I still get excited for date night.

Unless our activities include something like bowling or hiking, I amp up my look, spending a little more time applying makeup, wearing heels (my husband thinks, the higher the better), and finishing off with a splash of one of my favorite scents, Apple by Donna Karan.

I love wearing jeans and have all different styles and cuts including skinny, distressed, dressy, light wash, dark wash, and printed.

This season, all shades of grays are at play and the much a buzzed-about E.L. James book turned movie "Fifty Shades of Grey," probably had something to do with it.

Back in Monochromatic and Winter White

Happy November! My traveling schedule forced me to take an unintentional hiatus from blogging last month..urrgghh, but I couldn't resist the impulse to keep abreast of all things fashion (reading magazines on my kindle.. love, love, LOVE!)  One trend that I am drawn to this season is the monochromatic look because wearing the same color from head to toe looks pretty darn ba@a%# to me.

30Plusstyle: Animal Instinct

My first look in October is another 30plusstyle collaborative post and the theme is to show a look which represents anything animal i.e. animal print, fur, faux fur, or leather.  My intention was to wear leather but we have been experiencing a bit of Indian summer in the mile high city, so I settled on an animal print dress.
