Rendez-vous d’automne

October 24, 2011

Zara dress, vintage belt, Club Monaco tights, clutch & 
necklace (worn as bracelet), H&M booties & ring

I’m a summer girl through and through, but there’s something to be said for these beautiful late October days. Aside from the obvious sartorial benefits of the season (so many more options), the warm-hued leaves on the trees and on the ground beg to be played in. Given that my dear friend Cee of Coco & Vera lent me this amazing latte coloured Zara dress that perfectly suited the kaleidoscope of warm colour outside, Matt and I decided to take a stroll through Stanley Park and play in the leaves! Such a perfect fall day.

Hope you all had a great weekend too! Oh, and if you were wondering…I did fulfill my mission of letting loose this past Friday. Definitely felt the aftermath of it all through Saturday, but sometimes you need to just throw caution to the wind and embrace vodka. So worth it after the week I’d had.

On that note, I actually have another night out tonight: the Jack Webster Awards! It’s an awards ceremony recognizing excellence in journalism and will be hosted by good old Lloyd Robertson. I spend about 9-10 hours a day typing away in a windowless computer room with the 14 other people in my program five days out of the week. Needless to say, we’ve all gotten to know each other pretty well in a pretty short amount of time. It should be awesome to get a chance to let loose together and have some fun tonight for a change! Have an amazing Monday loves!

    You look beautiful in these photos! Love the pleat details in the skirt of that dress, and the neutral tones seem so perfect for fall. Also digging the beautiful fall foliage behind you. Evidently I wasn't the only one out for a crisp autumn walk and photoshoot this weekend. 😉

    "throw caution to the wind and embrace vodka" best thing i've heard ever.
    These photos are AMAZING, I love this dress, such a perfect colour on you and those tights are awesome with it. I have a serious Vancouver craving right now

    This is SO gorgeous Alex! I love the colour palette and the way you styled the dress. Perfection!! I'm so jealous that you still have such beautiful colourful leaves to jump around in. Fall is already making its exit in my corner of Canada. Soon I'll be embracing snow. And perhaps vodka lol So glad you got to let loose over the weekend. Have fun tonight!! xo

    Oh Alex, you did such a beautiful job with my dress! It fits you like a glove 🙂 I love the way you styled it, and all of the fallen leaves in the background are absolutely gorgeous. I love the added brightness from your lipcolour, the redish shade really pops against the oranges and browns. Glad to hear you recovered after Saturday 🙂 Hope you're having a wonderful week so far, love.

    My favourite post of yours ever?! Definitely! I can't say enough good things about this. You look incredibly gorgeous and the styling you did is beautiful. I love how you stayed in the same colour palette because I feel like often times I am so caught up in trying to make an outfit interesting that I don't remember to do this! And the leopard accent & gorgeous belt are the perfect finishing touches.

    Also, Matt's photography skills seem to have exponentially improved! Is this with your new camera?!

    Hope you are having a great week lovely!

    Hey pretty lady,

    I love these photos of you, especially the first shot! Let's get together soon. We have SO much to catch up on!

    You look absolutely gorgeous! This neutral color suits you so well and I love all the details (the tights are stunning and the lip color is the perfect share of pinkish red). Oh, and I think that first picture is amazing. I have tried the leave throwing thing up in the air, but that didn't work out. Never thought of throwing it towards the camera, great idea 🙂
