Leather & Fur

Wore two of my favorite textures—shearling and leather—this weekend and have yet to discover a better combo. With such serious accessories, of course, came a very unserious outfit. I’ll post the full look later this week. Until then, can we talk about this bag, though?

Happy Monday, My Well-Dressed Darlings!

This fall, all I can think about is footwear. Not really a major newsflash—I know. But although shoes have always been my be-all-end-all, they seem to be occupying my mind more than usual this season. I’m dying to get my hands on those chunky Balenciaga boots (goodbye paycheck!), some So Kate pumps (preferably in white) and pretty much most of what Saint Laurent has to offer. So I’ve been thinking…maybe I should just start a shoe blog? What do you guys think? Sound off in the comments section below!

Hi Fashion Friends!

As usual, I’ve been a bad blogger while traveling. I’d write it off on limited WiFi, but the truth is I was busy having a computer-less blast. Sometimes you literally need to unplug, you know? So I won’t apologize for my absence, but I will say that I missed updating you guys on all the gorg fall clothing I’ve been unearthing (and subsequently hoarding). But don’t worry, it’s making its way into WordPress as we speak!

Those of you who follow me on Instagram (@ellefure) know that my travels took me to an island off the coast of Croatia for the wedding of one of my nearest and dearest friends. On the way there, I made a pit-stop in Oslo, where, for the first time in a long time, I could actually feel Norway’s notorious minimalism creeping into my aesthetic consciousness. My inner maximalist was like, “what the hell?” Although I always appreciate clean lines and a neutral palette, it’s never really rocked my world. I’m still too easily absorbed by things that statement (yes, I made that a verb) and sparkle. I don’t know what changed this go-around, but all the camel and whites kind of clicked. So there you have it, I’ll be investing in Scandi staples this fall. But don’t worry — my monochromatic madness will be temporary, I’m sure. (Full outfit photos coming later this week.)
