My favorite season is officially here and I am currently embracing all of the Autumnal vibes! This time of year is all about the various brown, orange, plum, and burgundy tones, so it was only right that I kick off this look with that color palette in mind. Though I have been quite vibrant lately, I decided to scale it back and dabble in some deeper shades. As soon as I spotted (haha, get it?) this frock, I knew that it would be the perfect piece to add to my Fall wardrobe. Though mostly black, I thought the addition of the rust colored polka dots, really elevated this dress and made it more eye-catching. The combination of short sleeves, high neck, and asymmetrical hem also added a chic sophistication that truly made this garment a “must-have” for me. In efforts to show off the open-back detail, I decided against a jacket but stayed seasonally appropriate with a pair of heeled sock booties– which are surprisingly a lot more comfortable than they look! At this point I felt like the ensemble was nearly complete, however I still wanted to add something that was a bit of a wild card. Luckily, I stumbled across a small structured bag with a giant tortoiseshell ring detail that perfectly coordinated with the pattern on the dress. To finish off the look, I chose to keep my makeup slightly more vampy with a dark lip and bronze eye.  My final accessory was a pair of emerald statement earrings by Kendra Scott, which added another pop of color and added to the Earth tones I featured with this outfit. Let me know in the comments whether or not you’re excited for the change in season, and what Fall/Winter essentials you can’t wait to pull out of hibernation! Until next time!
