Autumn Leaves

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. Here, in my hometown Split and surrounding area, we are mostly blessed with warm and sunny days – a perfect balance between the hot summer and cold winter.

But the colors!! I just love them. It is truly nature at it’s best – green, yellow, red and orange…heaven for my eyes. So today’s post is my homage to the wonderful Autumn shades – enjoy!

Kisses, Dee.

The (T)rench Connection

There are clothes …and then there are classics. One of them is definitely trench coat. I think every one of us owns some variation of the trench coat for those rainy Spring  or Autumn days. I while ago I got my hands on this wonderful second-hand Burberry trench coat which I consider my prized possession.

One of my favorite movie scenes is the one from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” when Audrey Hepburn (or Holly Golightly) is trying to catch her love interest Paul dressed in her trench coat.

Every time I put my trench coat on I feel like a part of an old school movie, and who doesn’t love to feel like that, if only for a couple of hours?

Plastic Fantastic

Last Spring you couldn’t turn around without seeing someone with plastic handbag or some kind of plastic accessories. Plastic materials were see-through or in all color variations popular for Spring, like greens and yellows…I wasn’t particular fan of that trend, but after some time I caught a plastic virus 🙂 . I love to wear plastic jewelry, especially all kinds of plastic rings and bracelets – they remind me so much on my childhood. You can wear most serious outfit, but add some plastic to it and you will find your inner child in a matter of seconds!

Equestrians do it better

Today’s outfit came into my head the moment I found this green Zara coat…when I saw it,  it instantly had a certain vibe which involved countryside, rainy and cloudy weather…with a touch of English aristocracy – well I have certainly read a lot of books and watched numerous films with English aristocrats as main characters  to know it!

Equestrian look today isn’t reserved only for professionals – it is quite normal to see horse-riders inspired looks and accessoires in street fashion and on the runways. The look is very elegant, and perfect for cloudy and cold days. The main parts of the look are quality well-tailored coats and jackets, vests, fitted trousers, and high leather boots – I can bet that almost every girl has some variation of this look. Maybe in our everyday outings we don’t wear high hats, veils and whips, which were a common part of this look in the early 20th century, but equestrian look and its variations will definitely never go out of fashion!
