Could it be... Fall is here?

In NC it has been a little less cool and crisp and a lot more humid and muggy. 
Although the leaves have changed and the Halloween decor is in full effect, everyone is walking around in sleeveless shirts and sandals. 
BUT, the 80 degree temps dropped into the 50's last night and at last, it feels like fall!
and just in time....
At Fleur our cool weather duds are flocking in and we have just been blessed with more Paul and Joe Sister! 
A timeless Peacoat and a warm Bright Jacket

and my favorite Chunky Knit Fair-Isle Sweater that perfectly compliments the sweet Bambi Dress!

Really Digging This...

We just got in a loaded shipment of Paul & Joe Sister...
Peacoats, Jackets and Chunky Sweaters
So I decided to checkout their look book for their Winter collection to see what else they have in store.

I am really loving the white knit tights with the light, flowing, print dresses 
and I'm especially digging the chunky knit sweaters and accessories with the shearling boots, 
umm, are those shearling shorts (picture 4)?
 yes please! 

Now only if it wasn't 80 degrees....

Spend the night as a rocker, inspired by Jean Paul Gaultier... 
a little David Bowie-esque. 
And rock Sport Max's rocker chic look during the day.
Or go the sweet route with Paul & Joe's candy inspired mod look for the day
And carry on into the night as a Disco Queen with Marc Jacob's inspired prints and runway hair.

jeans + leggings = jeggings

The new jegging craze had me very skeptical. 
I wasn't sure how I felt about the faux denim look on a tight pair of leggings. 
However, I have recently noticed the evolution of the jeggings. 
Though once a pair of leggings with a denim looking design, they now are an actually jean with a much lighter feel and a touch more spandex. 
In my opinion the jegging has taken the legging into a more acceptable daily wear. 
So you don't have to worry about the thinness of your cotton leggings under your a-bit-too-short-sweater or looking like you have just stepped out of yoga class when you are headed out for a night on the town. 
All of the successful jean companies have started creating their own version of the jegging and offer a variety of styles, from thicker more jean-like pants to skin-tight legging pant that still provides support for the rear but does not stretch out and sag at your knees. 
At Fleur we just got our first shipment of jeggings from the new O.T.R line from Anlo Jeans. 
The Essential Skinny Legging will make all your jegging dreams come true!

It's beginning to look a lot like Leggings...

and it is beginning to feel a lot like French Curve. 
We just got our first stock of Leggings and Tights and it is, Oh, so exciting!
patterns and lace and ruching and buttons... the options are endless. 
And figuring out what to wear with them this fall offers endless possibilities. 
Leggings are everywhere:
under dresses, long sweaters, big t-shirts, chunky jackets, and even shorts.
The only problem will be deciding which pair to buy first!

Freaky Fall Fashion

It is feeling especially like fall this week.
With pumpkins lining the streets and candy corns strewn about, I am throwing myself into fall full force.
Some days I am feeling the browns, oranges and cranberry reds to mimic the changing leaves, 
but this week I am really digging the freaky fall blacks and rich contrasting colors.

black finger nail polish anyone?

Birthday Suit

Today is the day. 
The day I was born, in fact. 
Many years ago. 
Other than waking up to phone calls from loved ones and eating a kit-kat with my morning coffee, today is like any other day. 
But there is a little sense of feeling special and wanting to standout a bit. 
Maybe wear something funky and blog to the world about it?
I am loving the menswear inspired looks for fall 

Business time with the Lauren Moffatt's blazer and plaid shorts for work...
and then wrapping up in a Band of Outsider's flannel on the weekend, yes please!
Well, the birthday is for all things we love. 
So mine will be filled with candy, cheers-ing with friends and hoping and wishing for this jacket ;)

I just returned from a long-weekend away on the California Coast, where my days were filled with amazing sites and a taste of adventure. 
After 20 miles of hiking and 2 nights sleeping under the stars, my bones are a little weary and my brain a bit fogged. 

As I recover from the activitizing and slight jet lag I ponder the most comfortable and relaxing duds to don this work week. 
But seeing as Loungewear is as luxe as ever this fall, I think I have the perfect solution...

...try and look perfectly effortless like this gal.
An oversized Goddis sweater and some leisurely leggings are the way to go.

From Here to There

From the back of the moto...
to a nice candlelit dinner...
Geren Ford has you dressed to impress!

And seeing as all of these pieces just landed in Fleur, I am itching to bust out my motorcycle boots so I too can jump on the back of the Harley and look dashingly Rocker Chic. all I have to do is find the bike...

Asian Pear Palate

Yesterday I discovered the Asian Pear.
It is delicious.
It looks like an apple has the texture of a radish but it tastes like the sweetest, juiciest pear you have ever had. AND they are grown right here in North Carolina.

They are delightfully delicious and refreshing, but as I was picking out the very best ones to take home and put in my lunch box, I noticed how perfectly shaped each one was.
The warm golden color and variety of sizes gave me the idea of a possible fall center piece or an overflowing bowl on my side table.
Or something even more creative like this:

I gobbled one up like an apple today but have been thinking of some more ideas of how to enjoy this fall delicacy:

What about:
2 Wheat Tortillas
1 Asian Pear Sliced
handful of fresh spinach leaves
Brie Cheese Slices
Pop in the 350 degree oven for 12-15 min
enjoy with a crisp Pinot Grigio

Indian Summer

i just heard Van Morrison belt it over the radio and with the fall temperatures rising into the 80's this weekend it is feeling a little bit like an Indian Summer! 
my mind is filling up with fun ideas to take advantage of this warm weekend and get out and about. 
*hearing a little bluegrass tonight with the Avett Brothers at the outdoor pavilion
*hitting up the farmers market in the morning to grab my autumn pumpkin
*and trekking it in to the park for a nice hike and sweat and maybe to catch some changing leaves

all in all, staying outside, as much as possible. 

i hope that you do the same!
