Such a perfect day

As much as I dread it, I have to resort from time to time to the tedious small talk about the weather. And I have no choice, trust me, but to declare this weather we've been having as glorious. We're nearing the end of October and the temperatures are still in their 20s so I am enjoying probably the last bike rides of the season. I've put aside my fancy ensembles and went for comfort in distressed corduroy pants, oversized sweater and my old-timer high top Converse.

As long as I remember who's wearing the trousers

As soon as I entered the leather pants into my wardrobe, I acquired a new taste for pants. These embroidered beauties were a no brainer. The color is season perfect and I absolutely adore the intricate details. The only thing is, I wish they were just a tiny bit longer, a length of just a few centimeters above the ankle would have been perfect. I already have in mind a ton of things to pair them with, but I wanted to try first a mix of prints. Luckily stripes really go with anything and I very much like the result. Hope you will too.

Smashing pumpkins

Halloween is getting close, I bet most of you are quite excited already. It has only recently been imported and celebrated in my country, because let's face it, who doesn't like to put on a costume and become someone else for a night. Yet I only dressed up once for the occasion a couple of years ago (as Wednesday Addams) and decided it was not my thing. This is not by any chance a costume, but the black and orange made me think of pumpkins and Halloween. I really love the blown out houndstooth print and as you can see, my obsession with anything leather continues. I tried out this cute faux leather jacket courtesy of Nowistyle and it's a perfect match.

No. 1 party anthem

I have been waiting quite for a long time for the perfect occasion to wear my tutu skirt out in public. It's quite tricky to pull this off as day wear, you cannot wear it to the office (I wish!), so the only options left are social events or evening wear. I put this ensemble together for a birthday party last weekend and of course I couldn't miss the chance of meeting up with my bloggerinas and snap some photos before the party. I really loved the movement of the top and skirt together. And for a purple overdose, my cardigan and shoes match my new purple highlights.

Lay it on the line

One thing that makes me excited for fall is the fact that I get to wear my funky tights. This year I decided to get rid of most of my colored tights and set out to buy dark, printed ones instead. Vertical striped tights will elongate your legs, which is always a good thing.Wearing a very short dress won't hurt either. The tights were pretty loud by themselves but I decided to make this outfit even louder with a bright blue dress in a very basic cut. For some reason I really love this shade of blue for fall, though it's not your typical fall color.

Somersaults and backflips

Fallen leaves colored so beautifully cover the pavement like an intricate rug the wind created. I remember writing this kind of things in my elementary school essays at the beginning of the school year in September. And it's not by chance that I took these pictures right next to my school back home. It was certainly a pleasant walk down memory lane. Here's a fun fact you might not know about me: I went to the same school as Nadia Comaneci and trained for my first 4 years there as a gymnast. It was one of the most demanding, difficult and very rewarding periods of my life and it has certainly helped me become who I am now.

For my theme song, my leather black pants on

Looks like this season I'll literally be wearing H&M from head to toe. They have in store all the essential pieces I have been coveting: amazing faux leather pants, super comfy ankle boots and most importantly the purple bowler hat I've been dreaming of for so long. I actually picked up the hat on my business trip to Paris back in August, when the fall collection had just hit the stores. I have been waiting ever since then for the perfect fall day to wear it. unfortunately that day proved to be a very cold and rainy one, but I made the best out of it.
