A New Season - A New Week -

Hi Ladies!
A new season begins
For some it is fall and for others summer

I love fall - I love cocooning - I love watching all the new TV shows -  I love cooking in the fall - I love to see the light change - I love all the fall colors  -

What do you like about fall?

This outfit was inspired from Izzy's Etsy Shop Look book

I love to mix patterns and always looking or thinking of new ways to mix clothing -


Izzy decided to style and remix items in her Etsy Shop

It makes it easier for her clientele to choose items in her shop - They can visualize better what can be worn with the item they wish to purchase -


I had this top for a while it is from Forever XX1
The skirt was thrifted this spring and was shortened
The label is good old Marks and Spencer's Saint-Michael
I wore it a while ago this way
I wore it long several times
I think it works better this way and there are more styling options -


The jean jacket is Wrangler - I had for the longest time, it was a gift from my daughter Izzy


The shoes are new and i love them - They are from Shellys London  and we purchased  last week at the Mochico's store opening  -


Now the good stuff  !

This is what we did with all the apples we picked last week!
Nine apple pies and 4 jars of apple compote!

And i still have apple - I bake some more this coming weekend

I tried my apple compote with plain Greek yogurt, so delicious!


I hope you enjoyed this post

I will be at Patti's Visible Monday and Monday Mingle

Je vous fais la bise

Love the skirt short, very preppy-saucy! And the patterned tights are great - I buy a lot of those!

I love Fall too, for the reasons you suggest, and also for the layering on of stylish accessories like scarves and shawls etc. I find my look gets more complex in the cooler months: more layers, more textures, mixing and matching - ahh I love it!! xoxo

sabine said...

i love it how you are juggling with color and patterns! you look so lovely again! i also have just shortened a dress and a skirt and woops! it is like a new piece in my wardrobe.
my favorites in fall are the marvellous colors of the trees and the fog in the morning waving over the greenfield and a nice cup of tea and some incense sticks in the evening and of course apple pie and apple compote and a bunch of grapes with a piece of cheese with a glass of red wine. enjoy your week, ariane!

Horses and plaid and tights, it's a perfect fall outfit! But now you've made me think of apple pie and I'm going to obsess about it until I get some.

Patti @ NotDeadYet Style said...

Such a wonderful sweater you have on - I love the whimsical print. And I am so hungry now for a slice of your apple pie, with some vanilla ice cream on the side : > That sounds like Fall to me! Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday.

I love your top "animalier". What I like in Fall? Everything you mentioned above plus the crispy feeling of the air in the morning, the smell of yellow leaves, the transition from the warm indoors to the chilly outdoors ( or the other way).



Terri said...

You've been busy! I love the sweater and all the little horses.

The Dainty Dolls House said...

Love your skirt and those pies - yum!! And also the top, because I love horses :)) Fall is my favourite, love the leaves, air - everything. Even if it rains sometimes or is cold, I like being inside with a book or good movie and snacks enjoying a film too :) Wonderful. Wish you a gorgeous week doll xx

Pam @ over50feeling40 said...

Yum, yum, yum!! Apple pie and autumn together sounds so good!! Autumn is my favorite season...why I started to celebrate on Sept. 1!! You look so fun today! Have a great week....

Vix said...

I remember that St Michael skirt, it looks even lovelier shortened like that! Those Shelley's shoes are great, I didn't know they were still in business these days! I haven't seen or heard of them in years!
Well done on the baking, you're quite the domestic goddess! xxx
PS I hate Autumn (and Winter). The best thing about them is planning my next escape!

pastcaring said...

I don't mind it being cool, but I hate all the rain we are having, the days never seem to get light enough!
You look as lovely as ever, Ariane, the skirt looks great shorter, and I really like the boots and tights.
Ooh, I could just do with a slice of apple pie with some proper vanilla custard! xxxxx

Helga! said...

Love love LOVE that skirt,and the tights are fabulous! I'm getting braver at mixing patterns,but it doesn't come naturally to me!
Apple pie! My Mama used to bake them,and I would pinch the pastry decorations she made for the top...!

Krista said...

Just when I think the post can't get any yummier you finish with apple pies! YUM!!! I love this bright plaid skirt paired with the horsey shirt~ works so well! The new shoes are cute and look comfy too.

Lorena said...

That lipstick is an amazing color on you :)
and you look lovely. I love reading posts where you are doing thins with Izzy - and i have apple envy !

What do I like about fall? As I live in Georgia, 20 miles from Florida, fall means I can wear socks, do some gardening without getting heat stroke,open the doors and windows and, finaly, turn off the a/c. Now I want some pie!

The Style Crone said...

Your powerful talent for pattern mixing amazes me and I see that you also have baking skills. I love the onset of fall and the arrival of comforting layers of clothing that are introduced once again into my life like old friends.

Melanie said...

I want to dive into those pies! They look delicious - especially knowing that you picked the apples yourselves. This outfit is wonderful - the top is incredibly unique. I loved the photo of you on Izzy's post too, at the Docs party.


Those pies look yummy mom! I made apple crumbler twice this weekend ;)

Love the look :)

I like autumn but it seems to have suddenly leapt into winter here, it's freezing, windy and rainy and I don't like any of that. What I like about autumn is clothes like coats, boots, scarves and gloves, I love hallow'ene and bonfire night, drinking hot choc and making food like rice puddings. I even like the early dark nights but not the dark mornings though.

Love your horsey jumper, your bright skirt and those fabulous shoes Ariane, and I'm jealous of how many yummy apple pies you have lined up, they look delicious. xx

I have no baking skills so I am very impressed by those beautiful pies! Autumn is my favourite season for dressing as you can layer with cool accessories but you don't have to cover it all with a down-filled coat. Love your plaid skirt!


I love autumn for the same reasons, and to get a break from the extreme heat.
I adore that horses jumper and the way you style it.
Those apple pies look delicious, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
If you had a PIN IT button would be easier to pin your outfit.

The Pugnacious Vegetarian said...

The only thing I don't like about autumn is how short the season is :)

I love the pattern/color combo of your tights and skirt!

The pies look delicious as well.
