I always find it funny how things tend to fall into place when you least expect it. After taking a brief hiatus for a much-needed vacation, I’m finally back to posting the remainder of my Fall content before we dive head first into Winter and holiday looks. I’ve had this plaid dress for quite a few months now and knew it would be the perfect layering piece for an autumnal ensemble, but I wasn’t exactly sure what to pair it with. Of course, a turtleneck of any kind would’ve been a safe option, but I wanted to try something a bit quirkier. The silhouette of this frock, though quite form fitting, was also very much giving me “pin-up” vibes, reminiscent of the 50’s and 60’s. Because of my willingness to further accentuate this style, I went out on a limb and decided to try layering this plaid piece over a dark floral button up featuring balloon sleeves. Though I was quite unsure of this outfit at first, it quickly grew on me and I fully embraced the bold, yet playful style. In my opinion, print mixing is one of those trends that really require trial and effort to perfect. At the end of the day, the goal is for both pieces to coordinate in a way that appears effortless and unexpected at the same time. While I was off to a good start, I knew that it was the accessories that were going to complete this look and tie everything together. Because orange is such a staple color for this time of year as well as the main accent shade in my shirt, I figured I would highlight that with a few wardrobe additions. I’ve had these sock booties for quite some time and always feel like they give a nice pop of color without being overbearing. Luckily for me, I had also recently purchased an over-sized pair of frames with the same color lenses for my recent trip; and they couldn’t have been more perfect to conclude my styling. Last but certainly not least, my favorite item had to be this incredible bright blue car we stumbled upon during my shoot! It was literally fate the way everything turned out, and I was thrilled at how well both my outfit and the vintage automobile complimented each other! It’s unplanned moments like this that truly keep me excited about creating content, as I never know what gems I’ll find along the way. Until next time!
