Fall Fashion on a Friday...and a giveaway!

I am all ready for fall! I have pieces in my wardrobe that have been waiting 2 whole years for me to have another baby and shrink back down to be able to wear them again. I am excited to have a real wardrobe this year (not just expandable options). Here's what I will be donning this season. And. AND! There is a GIVEAWAY from my favorite Etsy jeweler, Crystal B., at the END OF THIS POST. (Kind of like Grover and "There's a Monster at the End of this Book," only it's a beautiful pair of earrings, not a monster...)

Let's begin:
Meet Cosette. She is my model for today. It's hard to photograph yourself with an SLR camera. Sometimes I manage it, but Cosette likes a little camera time, too. She also has quite a lovely figure to show off.

Here Cosette is modeling a dark denim jacket and bright, gauzy scarf. Find them HERE and HERE. On the right she is feeling a little shy in her gray wool cloche hat and button sweater. Cloche found HERE.

Speaking of Crystal B., just look at this stunning necklace from Crystal that I added to my collection this week. Isn't it DIVINE!? I absolutely love it. You can find Madame Bailey HERE. Purple sweater found on sale HERE.

Dear, sweet Stephanie Nielson sent me a lovely gift this week. What a fancy find inside the package!! This gorgeous Victorian-inspired wrap is quite possibly the most wonderful accessory I have ever seen. I am so happy to own one (more photos of how to wear it at the end of the post). Find it HERE. As Stephanie says, "It really is a beautiful thing!"

Flirty skirt on crisp days. Warm tosies on chilly days. Skirt found HERE, boots HERE.

I adore these boots. I bought them 3 years ago, and my plump prego peds couldn't handle them last year. Welcome back! And I finally found a skinny jean that looks good on normal people (aka, people who's thighs aren't rail thin). Find them HERE.

And finally, these photos are especially for my sister-in-law and beautiful friend Tiffany. She always excels at taking fetching photos of herself. So I dedicate this little bit of vanity to you, Tiff. We all need to feel beautiful, no?

And now for the giveaway!

Crystal B. Jewelry is giving away a pair of Madame Livingston earrings to compliment your fall wardrobe. The giveaway will END Monday night at midnight. The winner will be announced Tuesday morning (October 13) on my blog.

• For ONE chance to enter visit Crystal's Etsy shop HERE. Come back and leave a comment telling me which piece is your fave. (Then you can go back and buy it as a little indulgence, eh?)
• For a SECOND chance to win, become a follower of this blog. Post a comment letting me know that you follow. (If you already follow, you can still enter.)
• For a THIRD chance to win, tell me your favorite fall fashion find, with a link to the item in your comment. I will be doing a follow-up fall fashion post with all of your ideas!
Good luck!

okay, so at the risk of sounding like i just copied you, i have to say the madame bailey. BUT, i did see it last week (i've purchased from crystal b before) and i've been coveting it ever since. i hear you loud and clear on finally fitting back into your clothes, and getting a new fall wardrobe. i'm in the process of doing the same thing after baby #4. i like hte mrs. moody.

Stephanie said...

I've been a lurker for some time, so this is a great excuse to come out of the closet so to speak.

I adore the Miss Gwin Collier from Crystals store. So my style.

Do me a favor, dear Lyndsay. Box up all of those lovelies and ship them to me. I adore them all! You have a fab sense of style.

My favorite item in Crystal's shop is the Madame Bailey necklace. It's completely divine.

But PLEASE post some more ideas on what to wear it over top of. I love the idea of layering things but have only recently started stepping out of my box on that. What other kind of shirts would you put this over?? Please tell

I love this photo shoot!
Your pictures are stunning. I like a model like you, not only beautiful but full of character. And knows how to dress, oui?
Thanks for the dedication! I actually have to take quite a few pictures of myself before I get a good one, but that is our dirty little secret Lynn.
