random shopping with reason...

i did a bit of online shopping this week.  fall was in the air, with cool mornings, and leaves beginning to change colours. fall, being my favourite season, is my shopping-weakness. i love layers, i love the colours, and i love to be warm. that being said, here's a list of some of the items i ordered:



this gourd garden dress from modcloth. i loved it last year, and miraculously it's still available, so i decided that meant it was meant to be in my closet.



red riding hood tights. they came back in stock, and played a part in my ordering the dress. i thought they'd be a fun weekend combo!

a wool floppy hat. i wasn't looking for one when i ordered it, i was actually looking for a beanie to wear under my helmet on the bike (which yes, i did find and order as well)... but lo and behold, order this one i did.

fun floral print thermals. i ordered two pairs. layers are needed for fall riding, and for snowshoeing. my current one pair of long johns was not going to cut it.  also, having just purchased an 80+ year old home, i thought these would come in handy for cozy lounging. still cute enough that if someone stops in unexpectedly, i wouldn't be embarrassed to have long johns on!

did you read my note above about cozy long johns + old home?? this definitely fell into that category. with wool sock-slippers? yes please!! all that's missing is a bum flap!

next item on my fall must-haves? these minnetonka mukluks!

what are your fall necessities??


  1. I love the red riding hood tights so much! <3 Did you see how Ashley of Fancy Fine styled them lately? So so so beautiful!
