Herringbone.... More Than Just Outerwear

Dewy grass between my toes, and a cool easterly breeze raising fine hairs on my arm. After a sip of coffee, I grab the camera and head towards the water.

I manage to catch the sun as it has reached the peak in the sky. My Laramie Ray-Bans, R. $159 are working their UV magic.

I have never been so ready for Fall as I am this year. Anxious to share in all that Mother Nature has to offer. In all the delights that one feels layering on a chunky wool sweater coat by Vince. For now I will have to settle for  my Herringbone Ponte Skirt by Halogen, R. $45.90

When I saw this skirt I knew it was a MUST HAVE for the season! First off it's a high Pencil Skirt- by far my favorite cut. It's fitted from the waist to the hips, almost always looks perfect with a shirt tucked into it, and usually comes with a little kick pleat to move in the back. It also usually pairs well with belts as with this skinny black one shown that came with the skirt. And I love the amazing color combinations . Also Herringbone fits in perfectly with my style this season which I am calling "Boho Smart"
Herringbone is one of those rich looking prints. 

You will definitely see a lot of this in Fall 2012 and some of my favorite looks come from the All American Classic designer Ralph Lauren.

Ralph manages to channel the English Countryside this season, which I am totally into. He makes great use of tweeds, plaids, and fair isle prints. 
I also LOOOOOVE Chloe. Well who doesn't. And I am obsessed with their handbags this year. Here we show a classic use of Herringbone Outerwear.

So ladies if you want to feel secretary sexy this season, slip on your pencil skirts, and if you want to feel thin, throw on some Ponte. That perfect mix of Nylon/Rayon blend makes you feel like you have a stretchy pair of your favorite Lululemon Yoga gear and can sit comfortably. Change out always wearing a dressy blouse and just wear your favorite concert tee and move about your day effortlessly.
