Pedro García Fall/Winter 2013 collection.
Each season, this design company seamlessly blends a moodboard of inspiration with the final design result—a fun way to let the viewer take a peak inside that mind of the designer(s), and their intentions for the collection. While flipping through their brand new catalogue, one can almost feel the briskness only found in a temperate Autumn breeze… the decadence of jewel-toned shades—champagne, grape, berry—and the coziness and warmth of a fireplace to offset the season's cool embrace…

An inspiring style blog.
Isn't the title of this blog so fitting? Blame it on fashion, indeed, and I do... each time I pass a window display that beckons a look, a touch, the imaginable factor of many outfits… blame it on fashion for the way we feel. The right heel for that dinner out, or that stunning blue jacket that rivals even the most dull of days. And if you are like me—I want to snatch nearly every single piece out of this lovely lady's wardrobe and place it contently in my own… especially, most especially, that ruffled top in ethereal midnight black.

I love coming across companies that care just as much about their branding, packaging, and other design works as much as their service/product. For they work hand in hand, and with each experience that a customer/client has with the business, their associations—whether realized or not—help shape their opinion, experience and value in the company. Now, I only wish that Nordic House was somewhat closer, as I can only imagine how fabulous their space and experience in person would be!

The start of this new week has brought wind, rain, and sunshine—and all within hours of one another. Which, of course, lends to a very difficult morning of dressing before I head into the shop. However, I've saved these pictures for days now, inspiring myself on the many beautiful things to come with Autumn—especially all of the pretty fabrics, textures, patterns, and colors!

Around the mid to late August, my mind turns to the romanticism of a cottage. Maybe the lush, full gardens that surround—full of shape, body and life… years and years of growing up with a garden that looks like something out of a park… or just the very essence of Summertime, as seen and felt by warm rays of sunshine, pouring onto nature, in through gates, and down on shoulders... have a wonderful weekend!
