O Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen and down the mountainside
The summer’s gone and all the roses falling
‘Tis you, ’tis you must go and I must bide.
There’s something about Fall that brings the Irish girl out in me, even moreso than other seasons. It’s as though the sound of falling leaves and smell of damp earth on cool, misty mornings transports me to another time, another place…
For Fall 2015 fashion, Tartan plaids are coming out as strong as they usually do, but this time around they’re showing their proud colors in unexpected ways. From backpacks to wedding gowns, this classic pattern still marches strong, and connects my heart to something timeless. Listen closely… Can you hear the bagpipes wailing in the distance?

I love finding pieces that transition between seasons well, and stand the test of time. This outfit is such a perfect combo for me, personally! I am a HUGE a fan of dresses, because I find them so easy to style around. Start with a great day dress, and you can change everything about it, by what you add to it! Picture this dress with a black moto jacket and Doc Marten-style boots. Totally different, right? Or with a denim jacket and sneakers. See where I’m going with this? A long, cozy sweater and shearling-trimmed wedge boots… I could go on and on!
My friend Retro Hunny made this dress for me, custom-fit for every curve. She’s amazing! She also made my Tanya top for summer, which you can view here (along with the cutest baby lamb pics!) She can make just about anything – email her if YOU want a dress like mine that’s fit just for YOU, check out her Facebook page for ordering info!

Fall is coming soon, babes! Are you ready? Pumpkin lattes, cozy hoodies, and fleecy boots are just around the corner!
I say, bring it on.
