    Ok, you convinced me – I was on the fence about needing yet another blazer, but I think a tan tweed one is totally in my future!! You look fabulous – I love camel and burgundy! (And I’m having a burgundy color link-up party next week on my blog if you want to join with this outfit!)

      Thank Ellen! So far, this is my favorite spot in the park. This is the place where so many movies have filmed and where so many scenic Central Park photos have been taken. I’ll have to tell you about the photography project I want to do here ๐Ÿ™‚

    Jessica, this is one thing I love about fall and winter that you can layer clothes and build up your outfit with different textures. Love your tweed blazer and how you incoporated this super feminine bordeaux peplum into it. Great fall look, one of my favourites of you so far ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your peplum top is so cute! I’ve been thinking about getting one for a while now, and your outfit is slowly convincing me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOVE this look your peplum top is amazing with the texture on it and the color is amazing. I love the way you styled it so simple and chic your necklace was the perfect choice to top off for this look.

    So so cute, and I was just thinking the other day about how to layer over a peplum top! I just made one from a dress I made last year: http://www.adventuresindressmaking.com/2012/10/self-made-dress-makeover-into-top.html

    I ought to try a blazer, looks like it works pretty well! You three all look so cute and stylish together, too!
