  5. Off to the historic beautiful seaside town of Rye in Sussex soon for a weekend, we'll be browsing the antique shops & individual shops (no dreaded chain stores) that litter the streets and stopping for delicious meals & the odd glass of champagne....so going to 'pinch' your jeans & leather jacket look, so casually chic (as always)

  6. You're starting to rug up for the chill while we're peeling off the layers. It's warming up as we head towards Christmas. Even after all these years still something I can't quite get my head around!!!

    You look lovely xx

  9. Love the cowboy knot and scarf ring combination, so chic. The gold in the scarf picks up the color in your skirt so well. The cowboy tie really shows off the colors and design of the silk.

  12. My dearest MaiTai,
    Gold and blue is another favorite! The CdD is such a special scarf, but what you do with it and how you so marvelously bring everything together is pure artistry - just divine. And you, my dear MaiTai, are a breathtaking vision! Sending you much love and golden December hugs xoxo

  13. I am pea green with envy at your cool weather. In Mobile, Ala., USA, it's a humid 72 degrees. MaiTai, if you have any pull with Santa, will you ask him to bring me snow this Christmas? And maybe a lovely scarf. Thank you!

    1. Hi Greta, with all the crazy weather patterns you might actually get some. For the scarf, I have a good feeling for you. :)

  14. Dear MaiTai, I love this color combination and you wardrobe inspirations from nature. You are quite a skilled photographer. I saw the other posts from Faux Fuchsia and Greta looking for cooler weather. I am looking for the opposite right now. This afternoon will be -34C with windchill but I keep telling myself it's ok as I'll be going to a party tonight with delicious wines. We had a blizzard last weekend and it's been bitterly cold here ever since. Every year I tell myself I need to move to a warmer climate. Perhaps next year...

    1. -34C sounds terrifying, but I can imagine it makes the evenings and get togethers all the more cosier and fun! Hope you had a fabulous party, and keep warm and snug.

  15. Lovely blue skies, golden leaves all brought together with your perfect outfit dear friend! Always love seeing your ensemble choices with nature in mind! Mmm...curious to know if the outfit choice comes after a glance at the sky, or the photos inspired by the outfit? Whatever way....perfect harmony! Sending tons of energy your way during this busy time of year, T xx
