Perpetual Flair: Pepette Fall 2015 Collection

No doubt you’ve seen many posts and social media highlights touting it is sweater weather, and of course it is, but don’t forget sweater weather also means it’s also scarf season. It is the time when we had a touch of flair to our fashion looks, no matter how simple or ostentatious, and what better way to spice up your outfit with some added style than with an edgy or fashionable scarf from the Pepette Fall 2015 Collection. Scarves do much more than keep us warm, they’re the perfect way to add some color or texture to your look.

Pepette Mosaic stripe scarf

The Pepette Fall 2015 Collection features gorgeous hand-printed scarves are that lightweight, super soft and available in fun prints, including stripes, florals, and in a variety of colors. We’re loving Pepette’s Polka Dot Tassel Scarves, especially with the subtle variations in color, the Mosaic Stripe Scarves, available in a combination of black and vibrant colored stripes, and in a new direction for Pepette, Braided Scarves, an edgy scarf style that is as soft as your most comfy t-shirt.

The above scarves are not the only reason to love Pepette. The accessories brand also collaborates with non-profit organizations to empower women around the world and provide them with the skills and tools necessary to own and operate their own businesses.

Lands’ End Holiday 2014 Collection

When one typically thinks of winter and holiday fashion, chunky knit sweaters, lots of plaid, and cozy wool come to mind; and we love when fashion labels fully embrace those signature holiday details. Hence why we love the Lands’ End Holiday 2014 Collection. The collection is bursting with classic plaids such as Tartans and tattersall; the colors, prints and silhouettes associated with the holiday season, in some of the most stylish options. We’re especially excited about their Stewart plaid pieces, a white-based plaid we hope to see again next holiday season. And of course Land’ End offers the personal touch on gift ideas with monogramming on everything from scarves, to sweaters and totes.

There’s so much to love this holiday from Lands’ End, the chic quilted parkas, equestrian jackets, and wool pea coats with leather trims, faux fur stoles juxtaposed with chunky knits, the chic year-round cashmere sweaters with a fun pop of color trimmed on the inside collar, and inner sleeve cuff, and of course your favorite Lands’ End accessories in the wonderful, seasonal patterns.

One gift (really, more than one) we’re really looking forward to receiving are the Lands’ End holiday treats. We’re looking forward to devouring the delicious Sea Salt Caramels, Cranberry Almond Myrtles, Peppermint Crunch Cookies, and English Butter Toffee. These delicious items come perfectly wrapped in your favorite Lands’ End patterns.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed that some of these items make it from our wishlist to under our tree. What are you wishing for this holiday season?
