I blogged for a while.

Then I stopped.

And Now I’m blogging again. But the Orchid Grey blog is one blog I have never stopped following. Any friends that ask about blogs I follow, I definitely point them to Orchid Grey and into Julie Sharp’s (Orchid Grey blogger), capable little hands.  And why am I writing about this beautiful lady today? Well yesterday my sister and I were emailing back in forth (we work for the same company and when we’re not busy – or just bored – we’ll email each other), and this was our quick conversation:

L – I am SO ready for fall fashion, despite the fact I’m not too fashionable!
R - Such Oregonians, I know I’m ready for fall. I always obsess over Orchid Grey’s closet in the fall!

And then I sent her about 100 pictures from the lovely blog. And sent a link telling her to look on it for inspiration. I decided I should share Orchid Grey with all of you! Now, I know that she is an amazing blogger, and has wonderful style YEAR ROUND! But I believe she truly thrives in the fall and winter months. Seriously. Go model for J.Crew. I gush…and then I go everywhere trying to find similar things to wear.

Dreaming of marrying cookies to a sea or hot chocolate. Waking up to complete silence, as snow has blanketed the earth while I slept. Walking Princess in our hazelnut orchards smelling the damp trees. Looking out my windows to see the vineyards changing colors. Oh Oregon, you too, come alive in the fall. Here you are; some of my favorite fall looks by the lovely Julie Sharp!

Orchid Grey said...

Aww, thank you SO much for SO much love! This post was extremely flattering! It's true, I do love fall, mainly for the fashion and all it's possibilities! The weather has slowly been cooling off, even woke up to fog this morning (a weird thing when you're nowhere near the ocean).

thank you for reading, and for your kind words.

- Julie

ps- I'm glad you started blogging again!

She is truly a living doll. I agree with you 100%, she just knows how to put the perfect ensembles together, especially when it comes to doing layers. Flawless and gorgeous!

I'm always really inspired by Love Elycia. I'm a sucker for her bright, retro inspired outfits :)
