Vortex Schmortex.  Weather radar had predicted a freezing cold weekend and didn’t deliver.  reversecommuter was not disappointed, although running around prepping my little princess’ birthday party (complete with photo booth props that I clearly had to test drive!) kept me so busy I barely noticed the weather!

Shearling, fur and denim made for a perfect weekend outfit.  Layering a long sleeve t-shirt with a boyfriend cut sweater under a cropped jacket can carry you through the day.  J Crew has some great boyfriend sweaters at budget friendly prices – did you know that their cashmere sweaters are made with the same wool as Loro Piana?  Psst – 25% off the regular price today with the code “SHOPNOW”.

 

O.W.O. Fringe Worthy!

O.W.O. (One Weekend Outfit) is all about the Fringe!

Furry, Short & Pumpkins

reversecommuter is toying with the idea of boots.  Denying the arrival of fall is useless, it is getting cold, feet need to be adorned in an assortment of leather loveliness.  Still in complete, mad, deep love with my Celine boots but there is nothing wrong with adding a new pair or two this season.

Variety is key to happiness after all.

O.W.O – Chopped Wood, Turkey and Houndstooth

O.W.O (One Weekend Outfit) is a casual three piecer that incorporates ripped jeans, houndstooth and a biker jacket.

Lanvin flats are my favorite – versatile, comfy and perfect for this fall weather where it is too cold for open-toed-anything and too warm to fully commit to boots.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!!!!

The knit pant trend a la Chanel and Marc Jacobs was prevalent on the runway, as were bullhorns for a rambunctious closing in the form of a fashion protest!

Stuart Weitzman is known for his over-the-knee boot, aka the 5050 leather in the front, micro spandex stretch in the back (think of it as the mullet boot!).

Now Stuart is going for #ROCKROLLRIDE über fashion-focused wild abandon weekend away gorgeousness in the form of a video directed by Julia Restoin Roitfeld, a model and daughter of Carine, former editor of Vogue Paris and absolute fashion muse.  Poppy Delevingne, sister of model of the moment Cara, and Dylan Penn, model and daughter of the ultimate Princess Bride, Robin Wright, star in the video.  reverse commuter is beyond LOVING this video, the fashion, the music, the editing, it all just works seamlessly, barely noticeable is that you are being sold a pair of boots!

Design your very own pair of the Lowland online here, and obsess over the video all day long – you are very welcome.

Pack a picnic, including a flute and a bottle of champs, wear amazing boots, throw in a little fringe, and make your own version of the video this weekend!

Floods!

High waisted, flared leg pants are the hot ticket this fall.  Big Puddles Beware, the wardrobe is ready for you.

Acne Studios reversecommuter.com

Sort of the perfect antidote to sosickofmyjeans-itis.  AND you can keep wearing your sandals with these for a few more weeks, (good rule is to put them away when you can’t feel your toes from the cold – you will know when this happens as you will probably make a dumb face like the one below…)

Paired with flats, white tank top, jean or leather jacket, and the day is already looking SO BRIGHT!
