elegance ensemble, brown eyed girl

I don't wear brown that often, but I did purchase these gorgeous leather boots at the beginning of spring last year and I decided to put them to good use for fall. I just bought this silk dress last month and it has become one of my favourite items in my closet this year. It's a great length, I love the print, and it is actually quite forgiving - the dark, dreary mornings have really put a damper on my work out routines. Combined with my trying-to-eat-healthy goal, I'm feeling pretty ugh lately, without even chocolate to comfort me. I have a feeling I'm going to slip into a dont talk to me mood soon with finals looming ahead, busting out the bulky SFU sweater, lulus, and Ugg boots. Sometimes it just has to happen, fashion disaster and all. How have you been combating the onset of cold, winter-like days? On a lighter note, my friends just recently got engaged! So excited for them. Love makes me so happy.

  1. Oh I've already busted out the SFU sweaters, lulus, and uggs. That is the only way I can get mountains of research done for all those papers.

    Good luck on your finals!

  8. Wow that dress is so amazing, I love the sleeves and pattern. I agree that I usually choose black or grey over brown, but you've styled it up very nicely with the off white accents. Very cute Chelle :)

  15. Just found your blog & love it! Quick question if you don't mind... what size did you get the dress in? I have been considering getting the same (ordering online) but not sure of the sizing!

  18. Love the dress, in fact the whole outfit! I tackle the winter blues with hot chocolate and marshmallows, although if you're doing a healthy kick I don't know if that will help! Alternatively, Christmas shop windows really cheer me up!
