Field of Fall Fashion

This past week in Canada has been a whirlwind of trampoline jumping, snack eating, hot tubbing, first day of schooling, game playing, fort building, and hugs with my niece and nephew.  In between all of these things, as I mentioned in the last post, the Chef and I managed to sneak out and take in some of Calgary's shopping including Holt Renfrew, Aritzia, and Club Monaco.  Yesterday after dropping my niece off for her first day of kindergarten *and subsequently crying with her mom on the way to the car, all the way back home, and for more than a few minutes upon our return - to be honest I think I might cry all year at the thought of her skinny little legs walking around the corner to the classroom all by herself* the Chef and I wandered outside and grabbed some photos on what turned out to be a quintessential Canadian fall day.

I was so excited to be able to pull out my over the knee socks...
and really have the weather to wear them in.
The military boots and bag brought the whole look together.
Once again the bubble skirt came to the rescue.
This time with a cashmere sweater from Club Monaco
that I cinched at the waist with a weathered belt from J.Crew (seen here).
I wonder if J.Crew ever thought their skirt would end up in a barley field?
I hope it gets cool enough to wear this outfit in Southern California.
The sad thing is this pretty girl next to me won't be there
to hang out after school.
Bye Canada - see ya next time.

Outfit details:  Club Monaco Cashmere Sweater, Gap Camis, J, Crew Belt, J.Crew Chino Bubble Skirt, Falke OTK Striggings, Joie Military Boots,  TK Military Bag, Melinda Maria Jewelry

Katie said...

So jealous of you and your fall clothes! I'd start pulling mine out but the heat stroke might get to me. Lovely outfit though. Ease back into reality - it can be rough!

Krystal said...

That bubble skirt is so cute! And I love the over the knee socks - I've been trying to wear them lately, too, except I do feel a bit silly in them sometimes!

hanks for your lovely comment!! This looks like a magazine photoshoot! Your outfit is just lovely.

Debby said...

I love this outfit, Carrie! Your niece is adorable.. I totally get the whole crying episode. First time I dropped Jordan off at preschool the teacher was hugging him as he cried and there was another teacher comforting me in the hall as I cried! I am loving that sweater & the J. Crew belt. Do the over the knee socks stay up? xo

Dree said...

This outfit is so nice! I can just imagine how hard it was to drop off your niece. She will have a great time, though!

Jessica said...

Oh, it's so heartbreaking to hear about your niece's first day at school! I hope the fear subsides and she starts to enjoy it soon.

I just adore your outfit. Yesterday was the first day I was able to wear tights this season - fall is definitely here!

Diana Mieczan said...

Cardigan over bubble hem with military boots! I love it!! It will definitely be getting cool in new England soon, I'll have to try this!

Sorry you've got to leave Canada already, but it will be thanksgiving before you know it, right?

The knee socks and boots are fab. Sounds like you had a nice time. First day of school when the kids are little is an emotional one - now, not so much! Whee....

Jess said...

As usual you look like such a fashionista! I love the socks peeping out! I cannot wait to wear mine this fall and winter! Hope you are enjoying your stay in Canada visiting your family!

Dear, this sounds like the absolute perfect time at home. Trampoline-jumping? Does it even GET better than that? And yay for pulling out fall clothes! I love your little socks, and that belted sweater is so lovely on you. Hope you're adjusting okay post-vacation, and have I mentioned that I owe you some serious e-mail?

Love your outfit and those socks are the best. Where did you find them? must buy them.

shari @ little blue deer said...

Love the over the knee socks! Been lusting after these lately! Mr. Deer just saw on FB that Slayer is playing in LA, and you can win a trip (how he had this in his feed I shudder to think!). But we should enter, and if we win the trip, we can visit, woo hoo! XX!

Jammer said...

These look like freaking ad campaigns! You and your neice need to get yourselves on the cover of a J. Crew catalog ASAP! haha

I seriously need to learn how to belt. I think it doesn't work because I have no boobs.

I don't even want to think about my sweet little Nephew going to school. Good thing we're years away from that!

Great look! Perfect for early fall. My neice started full-year school this year and it's so hard to think they're that old already!

emilywilson said...

The Knee high socks are cuuuutee! love this layered look, following your blog :) xx

ChinkyGirLMeL said...

Oh sweetie I'm so jealous of your outfits. I wish I could wear stuff like this. Oh, I wonder what our neighbors are sporting now? My crazy neighbor is sporting a G.I. Jane. She is bald. I have no idea why she's bald but she was out of her house for about 2 weeks, maybe she was sent to the psychiatrist or something.

Jessica said...

You look so amazing, Carrie. I love the boots with the socks! Hope you had a wonderful visit with family in Canada!

Couture Carrie said...

Amaaaazing look, darling!!

Erika ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

i'm gonna try and do the boots knee high combo this weekend - i don't think it'll be a good look for me - but i'm gonna test it out for the heck of it! :o)

Zabrinah said...

Oh my gosh! You look awesome! I love the socks pulled over the knees look!

Best wishes from one blogger to another,

Kelly Leigh said...

Love your knee socks and that adorable little blonde!

Kelly Leigh said...

Love the dark grey idea, I have like 3 shades of grey samples, and I really like them - but I'm afraid the dark ones won't be neutral enough. We really want it to be mass appealing. What do you think?

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

just shoot up the coast to us here in the PNW, when you feel the need to bust out some autumn clothes. (i swear i could wear my fall duds all year round here.)
i'm uber jealous of those amazing socks! i'd probably live in them if i owned them.

(ps - raining gumdrops? um, YES PLZ!!!)

Stunning - both you and the clothing. Also, I love Canada. Beauty all around.

I love the outfit... Seriously, you have such an incredible sense of fashion! I consider it a good day if I manage to go above and beyond a t-shirt and jeans by adding a bracelet... I may need grown up dressing lessons! ;)

corksandcaftans said...

holy. shit. you look incredible.

why haven't I ever thought of putting socks with those boots? ok if I copy you? jesus, you look so amazing!

this free bird said...

omg i was so beat from playing non-stop w/a four year old for 5 days straight that i could not believe how great the pictures turned out. i give the barley field all the credit - it has singlehandedly proven how a setting can detract from the look of exhaustion! haha

ps - copy away lady!! i totally thought of you when i put those socks inside the boots. i'm wearing this outfit again - so fun!
