     A new start to the the week means a fresh batch of 5 Things I Love, and I have some real pearls for you this time around. It's been a particularly stressful week for me (see my next Wellness Diary post for details), and I'm not coping with the season's change as well as I used to. If you've also been feeling winter's bite, these five cool links just might cheer you up.

5 Things I Love:


1. Ah, holiday dress-up season! This is the first year my boyfriend will be in my country for New Year's Eve, so I'm on the hunt for the perfect party dress. I'm thinking something slinky and understated like the Cowl Girl Slip from Free People. Or maybe something with major sparkle factor like the C/meo Collective Lustre Sequin Mini Dress? Decisions, decisions.

2. A big congratulations to Bri of DesignLoveFest, who just celebrated her wedding with an amazing Road Trip Honeymoon from LA to Tucson. The photos are amazing, and it looks like she and her husband have already created so many beautiful new memories together.

And if you haven't had your fill of weddings, 100 Layer Cake shared this Laguna Beach Wedding which was filled with pink baby's breath!

3. Reading My Tea Leaves created this cool Structured Macrame Basket DIY, and I think it looks so adorable. Imagine filling it with fresh flowers.

4. If there's one recipe I want to try this season, it's A Cup Of Jo's Old-School Chocolate Mousse. It looks so delicious!

5. Ever heard of a flower bar? Now we have, thanks to 100 layer cake's post about Australian flower bar Nikau and their lovely designers. If you're not up for the read, the pictures alone are worth scrolling for.

Another Taste Of For Love & Lemons' Fall 2019 Campaign

     I'd like to start this post off with a quick apology. I know my posts have all been editorial or campaign commentaries lately, and I'm so sorry for that. I haven't been able to locate my camera after moving, so I may just have to use my iPhone in order to start making original content again. I miss getting in front of the camera, shooting outfit posts, and filming product reviews. We will definitely have more of that very soon! For now, I just want to share a little more fashion with you.

My last post on For Love & Lemons 2019 Ready To Wear Fall Collection was only part one. You see, the lookbook is actually split into two different sections, each featuring great photos starring two different models. I loved both, but could only fit one model's photos in a single post, as this collection was pretty massive. So I'm sharing what I'll call Part II For Fall.

This stunning collection of photos is my favourite of the two halves. This beautiful model looks just like a tourist as she traverses the city of love, stopping to scan a map in the chicest way possible. The clothing here is a little more casual, which is more my cup of tea. I adore the Faye Midi Dress, which is full and sheer and boasts a blooming pattern that can't been ignored.

For Love & Lemons Fall 2019 Ready To Wear Campaign

Monday, 28 October 2019
     Party season is here and For Love & Lemons is bringing us the Parisian party frocks of our dreams with their Fall 2019 Ready To Wear collection. Oui, Cherie!

For Love & Lemons' fall 2019 campaign marks the first great party-wear collection I've seen this year. I adore everything about this lookbook. Taking a few style cues from Marie Antoinette, the brand serves up a collection that's all femininity, frills, lace, silk, and bold yet tasteful accents. In signature fashion, For Love & Lemons paired these beautiful frocks with fun accessories for a modern charm. I especially love the use of velvet padded headbands, which I am loving right now. My favorite dress is the Benatar Ruffle Mini Dress, which is just as rebellious as its namesake. With an '80s floral print and allover ruching, this dress really is rock 'n' roll.
