Exhibit Three | Sangria

Remember when: I mentioned that I recently discovered a number of Sangria (the top color forecast for Fall) colored dresses (click here and here) in my wardrobe? Well, may I present Exhibit Number Three?!
I wore this look around town on a Fall-like day here in SoCal. 
Too bad I didn't think to take a couple of pictures before my dress wrinkled ;)
Anywho, I had a yearning to pull out my denim jacket for the first time this year. The cool evening temperatures made this the perfect opportunity. 
It feels oh so good to experience a genuine cool down, and I plan to take full advantage of it.

Recently while driving back from a meeting through a busy business district, I noticed that out of the sea of people rushing from one place to another, the colors that dominated the scene were black, navy blue, and brown.
This gave me cause to reflect on how much I genuinely appreciate the variety of colors and styles offered by those in the online blogging community!
I never have a reason to crave seeing creative, colorful ensembles for long - all I have to do is scroll through my Instagram feed (Click here, @InMyJoi), and wa-lah, my fashion desires are instantly satisfied =) Yes, because of the blogging community, I realize that I am not on an island by myself in my LOVE of colour!
Nonetheless, despite the vast array of delectable colors, there is just something about a simple, classic, crisp ensemble - it appeals to the eye. Today's post features my take on an old favorite, the classic uniform (click to see more black & white ensembles here and here).

Sunnies: Betsey Johnson
White shirt: Banana Republic
Tie: Borrowed from my husband’s closet
Cigarette pants: Lord & Taylor
Shoes: Tildon (worn here and here)
Clutch: Kate Spade

A Second Take in Sangria

Hey Style Lovers! I hope you’re enjoying a wonderful weekend! I had a good weekend, and actually feel ready for a new week beginning tomorrow. I’m back in another Sangria dress for today’s post (click here to see previous post); I just love how this color looks against my skin tone. 
I took a quick count, and who knew: I actually have 5 dresses that fall into the Wine/Sangria color category! This color is projected as a top runner for this Fall, I am completely HERE and so ready for it!
Now this dress is quite versatile in my opinion, it can easily be dressed up or down. Since I was feeling casual this time around I added two favorite fall accessories: legwarmers and a light scarf. 
On the day that I wore this look, temperatures drifted into the 70s (Fahrenheit) and I felt delightfully comfortable. 

Sunnies: Forever 21
Dress: Adrianna Papell
Scarf: Thrifted
Bangles: Amrita Singh
Legwarmers: Loehmann’s
Baby Jane’s: Aerosoles
Handbag: Michael Kors (also worn here)

Until next time Beauties!
