Cream + Cognac with a Splash of Plaid!

I am beyond excited to share this post with you today. Why? Well, because the photos taken for today’s outfit details post were taken at a recent Fall photo shoot with a new photographer. Her name is Diana of DPhotography and she is very good at what she does! It was my first time working with Diana, and we had loads of fun taking these photos to share with you today! So here we go..

This cream sweater from Jones New York is my favourite winter staple. The knit pattern on the front is beautiful and the warmth it provides is amazing! I always go for cream over white in the winter because I think the warm undertones look better. Winter white is beautiful, don’t get me wrong, but I will take cream over white any day. I also like how the colour of the sweater draws out the white pin stripe in the plaid pattern.

This mini skirt from J.Crew Factory is to die for. I picked this baby up on my shopping spree in Ottawa and have been waiting a while to style it. Although plaid is a pattern I love for all seasons, I most love it worn in the Fall for a cute Fall look. Red and navy plaid especially is such a great pattern for the Fall (and a Fall background, like this one). This skirt is the perfect length and the hidden zipper at the back doesn’t disrupt the pattern in the least! If I were ever to fall in love with a skirt, it would be this one…one hundred percent.

By now, you should know that these boots are my favourite boots ever. They are from Guess and the cognac colour makes me so happy. I struggled a lot over which boots to wear for this look, believe it or not. Brown or black? Knee high or ankle? I couldn’t decide. I had to try on a lot of different pairs. When I slid these beauties on, I knew they were perfect. I loved the detail in the gathering of the leather, and where they hit on my calves. They were also very comfortable to wear for the hour and a half that we were shooting.

Gold is my favourite colour detail for jewelry, and with such a warm toned outfit, gold was the obvious choice. Link jewelry is one of my favourite styles. I like the chunky look and how the chunky link necklaces sit. This necklace is from Icing Jewelry. I don’t like spending copious amounts of money on accessories, but this is definitely worth it!!

Cream and cognac are my staple colours of the Fall. I love how well they work together and how neutral they act in a typical Fall look. The weather was great on this marvelous day and I couldn’t have asked for a better gal to work with! Check out DPhotography for a look at Diana’s captures. This is such a great look for Fall, and because of the sweater, it gives the outfit a casual edge. Alternatively, if it gets too cold (as we head into the Winter season) you can add in some cute tights! Always a great add in for the cooler seasons! A big thank you goes out to Diana, DPhotography!

    I am loving this sweater and those boots! I am also becoming a fan of gold jewelry and may have to purchase a few for myself.

    This is the perfect outfit for this time of year and I just love seeing how much your photography has improved over time. What camera are you now using?

      Thanks Beth! I have partnered up with a new photographer – my sister was taking shots of my before, but we upgraded our camera to a Canon Rebel T3i! So between Diana (my new photographer) and my sister (who is also awesome with a camera)…the quality has definitely improved.

      Before, I was just using my parents’ Sony DLSR, but it’s a bit older and I was setting it up on a tripod with a timer lol Not the best

      Thanks for commenting 🙂

      Thanks Jasmine – yes tights are a staple in the winter time – I hate not wearing skirts just because of the snow (poor reason)!!
