After a trying few days, I am happy to say that Miss Little Bit is still with us. Once again, she has rallied. Amazing little dog. Of course, I know the time is approaching, and quickly, but I am grateful to have her for just a little longer. My sincerest thanks to all of you who sent messages. I am so touched to have so many who care. It is truly a blessing :)
Today is labor Day here in the U.S. A day to take some time and relax. It is also the official last day of summer. If you've read the blog for some time, you know that I absolutely LOVE fall. I love the colors, the crisp mornings, the first fire in the fireplace, leaves crunching under my feet. And I also love needing to throw on a jacket when I head out the door. So with the changing of the weather, I thought we would take a look at some fun pieces that are easy to wear, but have some style.
What I love about this jacket are the great pockets.
I had no idea that Stella McCartney was designing for Addias. Good move on the part of Addias. Absolutely love this jacket. Such a great transitional piece with the mesh insets.
Also from the Stella McCartney line for Addias. I love these tops for when it begins to get cold enough for sleeves, but not quite cold enough for a jacket for my morning workouts. Has a hood too just in case your ears get cold :)
Once again, Stella McCartney. I really like the flat front of the jacket and the kind of a funnel neckline with the hood.
This cape is from Nike. I wouldn't wear a cape while I'm walking or running, but it's a great piece to throw on after a workout.
We all know Lululemon! Love how feminine the jacket is and how they were able to incorporate their logo into the design.
With this jacket, the logo design was accented with a twist on the stripes.
Again, a very feminine design from Lululemon. Take note of how the ruffles actually accent the waist and make it look smaller.
Not sure who the maker is of these pants, but I just have to make myself a pair. Love the style lines.
Maybe a little crazy, but I love this bag!! What a simple and yet easy bag to throw things into if you are off to the gym.
So I thought I would pull out a few patterns that I really like, in case you are a little intimidated with trying to rework a pattern.
I really like the style lines on the tights. This is McCall's 7261. The pattern includes a great hoodie too.
Love this jacket. Also from McCall's, pattern number 7446.
New from McCall's, 7482. Love the pants and the jacket.
This is from Kwick Sew, pattern number 4113. The skirt is actually a skort, so it could easily be converted to tights with a skirt for cooler days.
For those of you who live in warmer climates, or for a top to wear under a jacket during the transition of the season, I really like this Kwick Sew Pattern.
I hope I've enticed you to ramp up your athleisure wardrobe!
Whether you are in the U.S.or not, I hope you find a little time today to relax and enjoy your day :)
