Cozy, Comfy & Cute – Autumn Wear’s 3 Cs

Cooler temperatures dictate chunky sweaters and one of my personal faves, a reversible cape.

The snaps which create large armholes enables even greater versatility of the cape as I can wear it as a wrap. The wool blend keeps me nice and toasty in the autumn chill.

Opting for flats instead of heels made this outfit even more comfortable without compromising the fabulous feeling I get from wearing a cape. Additional cute combos can be achieved by pairing with jeans & over the knee boots, long skirt & ankle boots, dress pants & heels. Whatever you choose, with the right bag, shades, or optional hat, you’ll be ready to conquer the universe.

Holiday Fashion Engages Senses From Head To Toe

Turn Heads In Blue Velvet & Ivory

What I love most about autumn and the approaching holiday season is the assault on the senses. From the sound of leaves delicately dancing across the ground on a breezy fall morning to the mesmerizing crackle and sizzle of logs in the fireplace, I can’t get enough.

I don’t know what it is about the onset of cooler temperatures, but it’s as if my senses come alive. It’s during this time of year when I especially take notice of the multitude of bold textures and I enjoy incorporating soft, smooth, plush, material with fabrics ranging from warm and heavy to hard, shiny, and sparkly.

Since the holidays are upon us, during the next few weeks I’ll share examples of outfits that offer tactile, pretty, and functional features that are especially pleasing to my bold, blind, and beautiful friends.

This week’s outfit is a classy combination of ivory and blue with red accents.
