I know, I know. We "fashion bloggers" are supposed to share the newest and latest but that's not who I am, and I doubt that's who you are too! Sure, we both probably add a few new items each season but for the most part we look for fashion items that can last a few seasons and years in our closet. 

When I first joined the fashion blogger movement I was inspired by regular ladies who seemed to have picked up some interesting items and added them to basics. I loved the idea of creating outfits rather than shopping. I still feel that way which is why I came up with the idea of selecting a few monthly classics. My goal is to pick a handful of items that are either already in your closet, and mine, and maybe add a fun new item from time to time. Then try and wear them as much as possible in that month! 

Two of the items on that September Classics list, a jean jacket and brown flats, made it into today's fashion post! A stripe dress, a pair of sunnies and an old market tote was all I needed for a day of county errands. There was a new to me farm that raises and processes their own meat and a stand of Niagara peaches, the final for the season. After that it was lounging and cooking, while watching an odd little show called Vice Principals. It's a dark comedy, heavy on the dark. 

The dress is old L.L.Bean, to the point that the label fell off! But it still washes beautifully and doesn't show much age to it, so I keep it around. The Just Peachy tote I bought years ago at a little shop in Cambridge, Ontario, The Art of Home. They always have such interesting items! The mornings have been cool and that's why I love a jean jacket this time of year. It's the perfect outerwear to keep a chill at bay without overheating. A vintage one is my favourite for the fall because you can layer some pretty thick sweaters underneath the old ones. If vintage is not your style, consider sizing up one full size to allow you some layering room.
