Yes, I really needed a new picture for my blog header.
Something autumnal, fresh, accordionish, Kellie-ish.
And yesterday was probably the last clear sunny day we'll be having in quite awhile... =) It was in the low 20's last night, and a good hard freeze brought sodden gray clouds today. In other words, I am so glad that in the middle of blacking my stove, I decided on impulse to get those header pictures taken. The wonderful Ellen, as usual, did a superb job, and we ended up with a super fun impromptu photo shoot, accordion and all!
I didn't even look at my hair, but the work of the day had actually turned it into a fun messy bun... at least, that's what I'm telling myself.
I got to dress up in my new purchases, including these awesome Hunter boots I've been eyeing for many months. They just went on sale, and when I found that there was just one left in my size (which is a small miracle - usually size 11 is not even an option;) I grabbed them. They're perfectly wonderful - the laces, the glorious green, the slight heel for riding, and the great quality all combine to make me thrilled with them.
The beautiful pointelle sweater is new, as well. I can't remember the last time I bought new clothes, as most of my clothing is either thrifted, sewn, or gifted... but with the growth of my Etsy shop, I decided to splurge on a few quality new staples to give my wardrobe an update. Tasha just treated herself to this beautiful sweater, and as we love to match, I went ahead and did the same;)
Can I just say that I love wearing grey?
I've never had anything this color before - I usually have greens, pinks, and browns comprising my wardrobe - but I'm experimenting a little more with color lately, and grey is an absolute staple color. If you don't have a grey sweater, I recommend you find one! =)
I also made another skirt from the Walk in the Woods pattern, and I love the way this folksy rose print works with the sculpted styling and ginormous pockets! The colors are also perfect for mix-and-matching with lots of other colors and designs. You'll be seeing this one again soon;)

~National Classic Cardigan (referred to by Tasha and I as The Grey Sweater;) - Amazon
~Print skirt - same pattern as the Walk in the Woods skirt
~Layered tees - misc. thrifted;)
Be looking for an update on the wood stove soon! I am so excited to have wood heat in my little house - it's no picnic living in canvas when the temperatures make a little trip down to the 20s=)
Once I get it all configured, though, I'll be ready for whatever comes my way in style!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
