This outfit was directly inspired by the Christian Dior Resort 2013 collection which we showed you here. Although what Dior has pictured is much more stunning in the red tulle and monochrome colored jacket, we loved the basic shape of the outfit and therefore used it in our look.  Although his was used for next year's resort, we couldn't resist starting now with the look. Of course the belted jacket we'll use all through fall (so you'll definitely be seeing that a lot more from us), but we do feel that this outfit would make the perfect spring look (which we'll see what the designers give us next week with the onslaught of NY fashion week and the ensuing fashion month to follow). So with a slight look forward to spring, we'll start to say goodbye to summer. Sadly all of this outfit is formed out of clothing from seasons past with an H&M skirt, H&M jacket, ballroom-esque pewter shoes, and J. Crew pewter belt. But don't dismay...Ebay usually has some great 50's length skirts in their arsenol....

POPPY DELEVIGNE - Cream blazer and leather

Lovely, lovely Poppy Delevigne shows everyone how it's done. Here she is at the shows this Spring. And you know what? Her jacket is really similar to the one pictured by us from Mango. You can buy it here. What a great look. It's making us want that blazer....

Just a simple outfit here. Grey linen skirt, white button down, textured bag and red sailor flats. Most of these elements you've seen before in different pairings. You also can see our trusty blanket that seems to make it into many of our adventures. This was one of those idyllic summer evenings where you have the perfect sunset as you're playing frisbee on what seems like the top of the world at this particular park. All you need is a good peach or juicy watermelon and the memory is set. We're sure you all have had similar moments this year....

Rosie Huntington Whitely (the Victoria's Secret model) showed up the other day to help promote her collaboration with a new brand called Autograph by Marks and Spencer. She is the newest face for the company and we have to say that she wears their brand well. That dress is quite amazing and it's for sale for 55 pounds (not quite sure what that converts to) here. Of course that belt is quite the find and it's for sale here.  One of us may break down and buy it....

We absolutely love backstage images of the shows from our favorite designers. This is from Stella McCartney's fall show. Aren't some of these pieces awesome? We have to admit one of our favorites is that awesome sweater dress (here's a better look here). We haven't quite seen anything like it before. We also love the mixture of tweeds and cobalt blue...we definitely might have to try. It seems cobalt is a thing for the we say break it out!

To Celebrate the start of our holiday weekend, Melody attended the International Sheepdog Championships in Soldier Hollow on Saturday. When she heard about it she couldn't resist something so foreign in nature, so made the trip out to see what it was all about. The event included sheepdogs herding flocks of sheep through a course for the fastest time under 13 minutes. At the end of the course the shepherd would step in barely to help things along and we were all biting our nails as we hoped some of the dogs could get all the sheep in the pen with some 30 seconds left. In other words, we were watching "Babe" the pig movie in real life.  There were also side shows to the main event that included a show called "Dazzle Dogs," made up of dancing and semi acrobatic dogs; "Splash Dogs," dogs that would jump into a fairly large pool for the greatest distance (baited by their favorite doggie toy thrown in before them) and of course the food and drinks were a side show all their own (namely the homemade rootbeer sold in their own bottles).  

A tricky event to dress for with all the fluctuating weather (from heat and sun, to eventual rain and cool), Melody chose to wear her lightweight navy blue chino trousers with military green shirt over top (inspiration here).  However there was a part of her that wished she had some cool rain boots like the girl pictured above. The necklace pictured is a christmas gift from her husband made from a broken piece of the famed Mata Ortiz pottery (that the two of them are a little obsessive over). The sandals and glasses are Forever 21. Overall we say if you ever have the chance to go and see something like this, you should. It's definitely something you'll never forget. And oh! Since when did the trees start changing colors???
