Fall Picks Part 3 - Globetrotting Gypsy

If my Fall Picks Part 2, 90's Minimalism, was too sparse, you might fall in love this next look which I am very fond of: Globetrotting Gypsy.

Boho has been hot for a long time now, and this Fall, cozy up to multiple layers, textures and patterns and become a globetrotting, free-spirited hippie. Summer boho looks, such as fringe, feathers, and florals, can carry right through autumn if layered correctly and worn with the right tones.

Bright, punchy colours work particularly well, and suede boots are a good alternative to leather for those dry days (oh-so-rare here in Vancouver but one can hope).

This look does require lots of accessories - the more the better! I totally love the dramatic feather necklace and Native-American inspired beaded earrings. Both are statement pieces.

Surprisingly, I actually like the fuzzy vest below. A perfect throw over a printed, loose blouse.

On a grey day, the gorgeous colours of this mohair jacket would lift my spirits up.

To add some glamour, I would pick up one of the vintage reconstructed necklaces by The Glamourai (I am obsessed with her jewelry right now, sold through Shrimpton Couture and Etsy) and slip on a pair of hot boots.

And lastly, who can do without this gorgeous, crystal encrusted parrot handbag? The perfect globetrotter's companion.

If you're Captain Hook I mean =D.

We're heading into the Labour Day Long Weekend here, and I'm soo glad. Will have some outfit posts hopefully over the next few days. Have a Happy Friday!

I love everything here (I think I'm really hippy dippy at heart). All those colours and patterns? Gorgeous!

I'm kicking myself for not buying a pair of earrings like that in Mexico. Silly, silly me.
