More than ever, I have really taken a liking to florals this season. It may have something to do with the fact that the prints are a lot more “moody” in the sense that they consist of darker tones which have honestly always been my preference. Garments with bold patterns such as these, whether vibrant or not, can also turn the most simple ensemble into a statement making look with minimal hassle or thought. I was drawn to this particular frock mainly because (as much as I love wearing black in the Winter) I like to challenge myself to bring a little color into my outfits during the Autumn season. Aside from that, I thought the length and classic fit of the dress was very flattering as well as feminine. In efforts to keep the look weather appropriate, I opted for my grey suede OTK boots, which somehow ended up being the perfect neutral piece for this particular look. It’s no secret that I am utterly OBSESSED with thigh-highs and am currently debating on my next style for this season; something bold perhaps? In true ASM fashion, I must always have an edgy element of contrast so I grabbed this over-sized vintage denim jacket (thanks Mom). The pairing of the outerwear piece was so necessary to me because aside from being practical and a true representation of where we are during this time of year, it also brought another layer of effortlessness to the entire outfit. After finishing off the look with one of my favorite dark nude lippies, I was on my way and out the door! As I style blogger, I really think it’s important to style looks that I would wear in my day to day life and provide suggestions without necessarily adhering to the “rules” and guidelines that we are told to follow. All in all, it’s just clothes so it’s only right that we experiment and wear what makes us feel most comfortable and confident! Comment below if you’re a fan of “moody florals,” brighter patterns, or none of the above. Until next time!

    Loving this look. The florals are of my liking however once I passed a certain age, I find they look best on me in a top. The back of that dress is kicking it.
