And here we are, it's party time again! I count mid-October as the official start of the holiday season. Halloween is just a few days away and seems to bring just as many adult festivities as it does kid activities. From there, Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away, and then of course Christmas and New Year's! So for me, October is the official marker of the start of the party season. In previous years I invariably went with dresses for parties of any kind but this year I'm breaking tradition and adding a new player into the mix - a sweeping skirt. I love the idea of a beautiful midi or maxi skirt that can styled easily for office parties (like here with a simple turtleneck) or done up for a more intimate night out with maybe a bustier or lacy camisole and strappy red sandals.

Fall is in full swing! I just came down with a cold that's taking forever to kick and missed this week's blog post. I've also been slow this year with building my Fall wardrobe. As you might know about me, I live in dresses and skirts. And I don't plan to give them up in Fall or Winter. My wardrobe strategy for these two seasons tends to be focused on figuring out how to wear summer pieces and still be warm. But there's one piece I always get new in the Fall and that's a great quality wool turtleneck. In previous years I've stuck with Club Monaco turtlenecks but this year I ventured out of my routine and grabbed this grey thin-knit merino wool one.
