Welcome to Fall 2018 Loves! What fall colors are you looking forward to playing with/in this season? I shared on Instagram that I plan to dabble in reds, multiple shades of brown, emerald green, dusty pinks (pictured HERE), burnt orange, and mustard yellow 😍. In fact, the odds are very high that shades of yellow like the one pictured today (and HERE) will be a top contender in my wardrobe this fall 😉. I'm also looking forward to playing with a variety of textures...say velvet, corduroy, knit, and silk - for starters.
For today's look, I took a step back in time to my very first style love: V I N T A G E. This dress reminds me of another style era, I decided to follow through with that theme and pair it with a vintage pillbox hat complete with netting, a vintage style handbag, and classic shoes. I love the end result!
I can also see this dress styled with a modern twist, incorporating layers (think cotton button-ups or a classic turtleneck), boots or booties, and an updo 😉
Until next time,
Xx

  10. Great dress. It looks like it would feel magnificent. Isn't yellow the bomb? I love it so much. I'm going to google 'yellow velvet' now. Dangerous. Thanks so much for sharing.
