Fall Textures

Happy Wednesday!

Hello Ladies,

This week has been somewhat challenging with my health. I am trying to see that this may improve, so in the meantime, my husband and I took some shots by the Lake.

It was just as sunny as it appears here. Only over the next day or two might it cool down for a bit. To quote famous author, Charles Dickens, in a Tale of Two Cities ” It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” Just letting you all know I am having some health problems recently, and I am doing my best with the blog. Just had to see several docs this week. I won’t go into that tale.

I so look forward to fall every year, and love the large magazines when they come out with their super monstrosities of a fall magazine, but I enjoy the colors the textures, the designs, the fabric. Well, since it is not quite fall here, I added my transitional piece, the leather blazer, to a mustrard top that caught my eye with the detailing around the neckline. I wore yet another pair of new shoes, as having seen dozens of leopard print heels on the blogs, I knew I had to have a pair in the wardrobe. These are kitten heels mind you, and I think I need to let people know that a kitten heel is usually 3/41.5 inches at most. I saw listings for kitten heels, where I want to see that kitten! 3 inches high, I think not! Anyhow, the texture of the top,skirt, the shoes and my LV bag in different pattern, I hope shows my interest in the upcoming fall colors and textures .

Have a great day

    Found them 🙂 you know I’m talking about the shoes. Love them. Yes, I’ve been seeing a lot of leopard print in many pieces and I do have one pair of flats but I’m thinking I could use at least one more pair.

    I hope you’re feeling better, it’s tough dealing with chronic illness and you are such a positive role model for the rest of us. I hope your testing went okay.

    You’ve done a marvelous job with mixing different textures and the colors blend so nicely. Beautiful!!

      Thanks alot Steph, I hope you are doing well. I had a tough time for 2 weeks and had a test done yesterday at the hospital, results tomorrow. I appreciate such kind words. Isn’t there a saying , ” a woman can not have too many leopard print shoes… ot is it just shoes?” Glad you like the outfit.

      Thanks so much Nora! They are a little kitten heel which is a major step for me! 6 yrs ago before Ehlers Danlos, I was wearing sweat pants and sneakers all the time. I have made progress, but am having some systemic issues now .I appreciate your thoughts. Glad you like the outfit! jess xo

    Jess, hope you feel better!!! And you know I got a leather blazer just like you and have been thinking of getting rid of it. Now you made me think again…just needed some inspiration. And that texture contrast you are talking about is so stylish on you and suits you prefectly. Its gotten quite chilly over here in Germany. xo Sabina @Oceanblue Style

      Hi Sabina, it is only now getting chilly here in the South. Thanks so much, this illness can wear me down! Thank you regarding the inspiration. I have a fair amount of leather jackets as we dont need many wool coats. Glad you like the outfit!
      Have a wonderful day! jess xo
