I know, I know, is she seriously talking about fall already?! Yes, dear reader, yes! And as it is my favorite season, I'm not even going to apologize! As a seamstress, I need to start thinking about and planning my fall projects now, so I can get going on them and wear them when fall does arrive. We have been having an unusually cool week here, a welcome break after the 90 degree heat, and it is making me even more excited for cooler weather and the return of fall fashion!
I have collected some images that are inspiring me for the upcoming fall. Some are vintage, others are more modern editorials that have always stuck in my mind. I am dreaming of all things tweed, of hand knit sweaters, and cascades of plaid. Wishing for garments in rusty orange, acidic greens, warm golden yellows, and rich chocolate browns. I've got the fall bug already, and I have no complaints.
|An image I first saw on Jessica's blog Chronically Vintage, isn't the color palette divine?|
|Ralph Lauren at his best|
|McQ Alexander McQueen, the absolute dream fall coat|
|I need to make a skirt like this for this fall|
|I still have my jodhpurs from earlier this summer, I can't wait to wear them with a blazer this fall!|
|Another equestrian look from one of my all time favorite editorials|
|I am determined to make at least one plaid circle skirt like this one, if not more...|
|Another shot of Dita in that great outfit from above|
|1940's fall suits, yes please! I have some tweed in my stash that is begging to become a suit like one of these|
|I need a black suit too, obviously...|
|I want to do some projects with embroidery this fall|
|Loving the navy with the light olive green here|
|Don't think that my renaissance inspired fall projects will be relegated to just last year's to-do's|
|more yummy tweed|
|I hate matching plaids, but I'll just have to get over it! Gorgeous!|
Are any of you thinking about your fall wardrobe already? I think it's best to identify holes in your wardrobe that you can fill to give you more options than you had before. Then you can start adding more of the for fun stuff. I happen to be a bit (*ahem*) of a maximalist when it comes to these things, but I digress...
