Fall Fabulous

Hi Ladies!
How was your weekend?
This weekend we went to the Gardens of Light at the Chinese Garden at the Botanical Gardens

It was pure magic -  It is so unique 

The weather is still very mild
I took the pics outside today

Now a few pics of the Gardens of Light at the Chinese Garden





My mother called me from the thrift shop Friday

She asked me - Ariane i found those exquisite Italian leather boots but there have pointy toes- Is this still trendy? I told my mom - Mom do you like them? How do you feel in them?
I said Mom wear what you want to wear - Don't worry about trends, who cares!

If you feel fabulous buy them!

I don't believe in styling rules or what is right or wrong fashion wise

I get lots of look from people  -  Tell you the truth i like it - 

I know i am different

I am happy  to say that have the confidence to wear what i choose to wear -

I look at people straight in the eyes and say to myself aren't i Fabulous today!



The grand kids were carving pumpkins today for Halloween !

This is Leonie's pumpkin


Be happy - Be Fabulous - Be true to yourself -

We only have one life to live and our time on this earth is short


I was wearing -

Jacket - Thrifted
Sweater - United Color of Benetton - Thrifted
Skirt - Thrifted
Tights - H&M
Shoes- Thrifted in Portland - ME


I will be back soon

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

Je vous fais la bise

Ariane! I totally love this outfit. And your words are very inspiring, thank you!


Lynne DeVenny said...

Such a lovely outfit and awesome photos. You always look fabulous, sweetie!

Jeanine Byers said...

Pretty outfit! And I love the scarf as necklace. I have got to do that more, because it looks great, and you don't have to fuss with it.

I wore a scarf last week and it just about drove me crazy because I kept having to mess with it. Must let you inspire me to wear them more neatly!!

Is it Cold Yet?

It's true, it is so much better to march to the beat of your own drum rather than following the fashion army...
Love all your colours among the autumn leaves, and all those lights and lanterns in the Chinese Garden are spectacular!! xxx

Veshoevius said...

What wonderful photos! Your silvery skirt is fabulous!

Sacramento Amate said...

I absolutely adore the first shot, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, the colours are magnificent.
The whole post is magic, Ariane.
Do you use photoshop to edit or any filter???

The Dainty Dolls House said...

You look stunning! Love the leave in fall time :) And, I agree, be yourself and wear what you like, it's much more fun to be that way :) Sameness is boring!! xx

Patti @ NotDeadYet Style said...

I love the advice you gave to your mother. And I adore this look on you - the tights and oxfords really make it your own. Thanks for sharing all the delight with Visible Monday.

Pam @ over50feeling40 said...

Your outfit and your pictures are stunning! I agree with you...Buy the Boots!!

Vix said...

Too right, if you love it wear it and stuff what anyone else thinks!
Love the colours of your outside pictures and the fallen leaves, beautifully Autumnal! x

Joni said...

Yay! Keeping on being yourself Ariane. I love it!

fashionoverfifty said...

Hi Ariane! Your photos are so unique and artistic--I always love them. As with your style. and I am always different too!

kaffesoester said...

Yes, you are indeed fabulous, today and on all other days! The skirt is gorgeous, and I love your combination with the red top!

The photos from the Gardens of Lights are fantastic, it must have been magic to see in real life!

sabine said...

you are fabulous today, ariane! you were yesterday and you will be tomorrow! because you are always yourself, whatever you wear.
your first and your last pic, maybe it is because of the colors or maybe because of the your attitude, are very artistical, i like them very much.
i see you spent a wonderful weekend. me too but in winterwonderland.
lieben gruß! sabine

Love the photos of you in the leaves! You gave your mother very good advice, which we all need to keep in mind when we are shopping or getting dressed in the morning - "do you feel great in it"? If yes, then who cares whether it is "in style" or "out of style" - it's obviously "Your Style"!!

Madeline Quaint said...

You look great and happy and the pictures are just fabulous!

I agree - the trends don't matter. For me the important thing is to have nice objects around I think beautiful. If I think a pair of shoes are beautiful, I will get them, regardless of what's trendy. :)

Claire Justine said...

Great outfit,I love your advice :) wonderful pictures...

Melanie said...

You get lots of looks because you look fabulous, and I feel sad when I hear women say, oh, I could never wear that, but their eyes say, oh, I WISH and I WANT to wear that. I agree with everything you said here. Gorgeous. I love the joy in that first photo!

CityScape Skybaby said...

That first pic of you is like a painting Ariane and I love the Chinese garden, what a beautiful place, I've never seen anywhere quite like that. I love your advice to your mum. It's advice I'm beginning to take after being too mousey and shy for too long. I'm never going to dazzle anyone with my style like you and many other ladies here, but I am starting to be more true to myself and that's what it's all about. xx

Izzywizz said...

I really admire your colour mixing skills, youre top notch! :)

Krista said...

Amen sister! Love the pink bit in your hair, it suits you!

The Style Crone said...

Your photos are stunning and I totally agree with your advice to your mother. You look so happy amidst the leaves; the colorful surroundings suit you.

I just fell in love with your skirt and tights - GORGEOUS color, and they look so great with the orange top. The photos of you in the leaves are some of your best ever.
