Orange Fizz

There is definitely a chill in the air in NYC.  It seemed to have happened overnight, transitioning from a sticky heat to a much welcomed cool breeze.  With this shift, out come the “in-between” sweaters.  I love these because with their weight, you can still mix them with warmer weather pieces.  I adored the rebellious, overly happy color of this sweater and knew it would stand out in a sea of darker tones.  Of course I had to rein it in a little by pairing it with a bit of black leather 🙂

Candy cane

With their refreshing, minty smell, unlimited Christmas decorating uses and wrapping red stripes, candy canes are one of my favorite holiday treats.  Starbucks Peppermint mocha is always my guilty pleasure while looking at lights Christmas Eve.  I’m certain I’d get some looks if I literally translated my favorite holiday confection into a look, so instead I used it as a fun inspiration.  Yum!

Bush walking

I am definitely a “city mouse” by birth and preference; however, living in Australia, an afternoon drive through the “bush” tends to pop up in my weekend plans from time to time.  The winding mountain roads on these adventures are a favorite of my husbands and provide amazing scenery.  My hot pink pants seemed to brighten the day as well as add a little glamor to my outback trip.
