After a long and sunny vacation, I returned to the great Northwest and had some trouble getting out of my Summer clothes...
One item in particular I have always favored over my other Summer dresses and jumpers: my AllSaints cotton maxi! While emptying my suitcase, I couldn't help hanging up this one, front and center in my Tiny Closet instead of storing it away again in my seasonal trunk. I have certainly worn this item from season to season before but I feel like I'm finally getting a good sense of its abilities for Fall and Winter.
Out for some lunch and vintage shopping, I decided to take pictures of my uncharacteristic outfit. Very prairie-like, very Western.
The wind was also quite dramatic that day so my outfit turned out to be a ball for the occasion :)
I decided this time, to wear the maxi as a skirt. I folded down the scant bra top and pulled on a comfy fitted scoop neck tee by James Perse.
I also dug out my enormous cowgirl belt and wrapped that around the skirt and top.
Then, to put a little city edge back into the look, I covered the top with my leather graphite Muubuu jacket and scrunched the sleeves!
The chandelier earrings were screaming so, to quiet them down for a more casual setting,
I wrapped a long but light scarf loosely around my neck and bunched it up.
The shoes, I spotted them crunched in the back of a rack in a Buffalo Exchange. While doing a feature shoot there, it was hardly about me but I quickly put them to the side for safe keeping until the shoot was over! And pssst,
Can't wait to share the style feature later this week!!
Aren't these just the coolest though?? I thinking cowboy-meets-Jil Sander. Perfect for the city. Perfect for a hoedown. What can't they do?

It's December and already the month has brought new sewing projects, style collabs and... big news!
But more on that later...
Hope your Thanksgiving was as happy and crazy as mine! Glad to be back and posting again. I've so missed sharing with you :)
