autumn hearts

Our days of autumn are numbered now as we enter its final month, so we seized the opportunity to capture the stunningly unique backdrop only this season could provide. Only in autumn will you find a cloud of gold, green and red leaves decorating the canopy, its beauty complemented in sunlight by glistening bokeh shapes. A sea of crisp, fallen leaves also litter the floor to create a vast, sweeping patchwork carpet. Although winter doesn't bring us snow in these parts of Sydney, we can at least make do with one seasonal spectacle.

There was a time not so long ago when I was hoarding blouses in all designs and colours like a maniac, and I had no qualms about paying ~$70 to add this Bardot piece to my collection. The warm, coffee shade touched the heart of this hopeless chocoholic and the silk-like texture makes it a dream to wear. Regular readers of my blog will also know I just can't stop wearing these heart-patterned stockings, which I paired with a flared, pleated skirt for a playful, girly feel.

Blouse: Bardot
Skirt: Taobao.com
Bow necklace: Dotti
Heart stockings: Forever New
Wedges: Wholesale7.net






 


Giveaway update:

Don't forget to enter my giveaway, which ends on Monday! (7th of May) Remember that you can also put in an additional entry (worth 2 points) each day by simply tweeting about the giveaway. Just head over to the giveaway page and in the Rafflecopter box, select the "Tweet about the Giveaway" option for 2 extra points!

I've also been kindly informed that there have been multiple entries using the same IP address. You can only be a follower of my blog via GFC once. (you gain additional entries by doing the other options such as tweeting about the giveaway, or liking my Facebook page)

Therefore when the giveaway closes on Monday, I will be doing a thorough check of all the IP addresses and other data to ensure there have been no multiple accounts to create multiple entries. You are ok if the email provided is eg. your Hotmail one and your Facebook account happens to use your Gmail one. That is NOT what I mean about creating multiple accounts to create multiple entries. What is not allowed, is for example joining via GFC and completing some entries, and making another account to join via GFC and complete more entries.

I hope that makes things clear! If anyone has innocently and mistakenly used two accounts to join via GFC, you will not be disqualified. I will simply only count one account you have used and the additional entries you gained using it.

Therefore when the giveaway ends on Monday, it may take me a day or two to sort through all the entries so I can do it carefully and precisely, to ensure all the entries are valid.

I'm sorry to end this outfit post on a rather dull note! Good luck to everyone entering! :)

  63. Good for you for taking the giveaway seriously! It's a shame people will take advantage of generosity. :( And LOVE LOVE LOVE your look. The pleated skirt is so fun and I adore the stockings as usual. The background is so gorgeous. Makes me long for fall again here. Also, I know you told me so long ago the lens that your boy uses to take your photos. Can you tell me what it is again and what aperture he uses? I just want to see if I can get the same amount of blur with my new lens that you get. :)

  77. I never really knew what lengths some people will go to get multiple entries in a giveaway, it actually really annoys me when people don't read the rules and follow them. You're providing something for them and trying to give everyone a fair chance! boo!!

    Anyway, onto the outfit.. I can understand why you'd love those stockings. They're awesome! I love how it's almost like you're wearing knee-highs too. haha I've actually never really been a coffee-colour person. I own one coffee shade shirt and rarely wear it. lol it doesn't suit me but it definitely suits you! And I agree about the background, fall provides beautiful scenery, love the colours!

    ReplyDelete

  79. So my first thought when I was the very first photo on this post was just "WOW" how beautiful is this scenery and your outfit is so complimenting not only to you but the scene. You did a great job with this it is so stunning in fall there!
