Deep Hues || Liz Taylor-inspired Green Dress

IMG_5288

Every time Elizabeth Taylor comes mind, for some reason I think of that dark forest green color she often wore which made her eyes stand out so beautifully.  Today's outfit reminded me of her, and I played off the deep shade of this Voodoo Vixen dress with a dark purple/berry lip color and loved the way they looked together.  With Autumn sunlight turning softer and orange leaves falling around the city parks, I tend to reach for these deeper hues as holidays are getting closer and closer.  Yesterday we took a long walk in the rain under a shared umbrella and it was absolutely magic!

Wine Red || Simple Staple Pencil Dress

IMG_5054

Red is such a great bold color year round... from summer dresses to winter holidays! Today's wine red pencil dress is a new staple in my wardrobe - it is so versatile that I could see wearing it either daytime or evening.  It's material is a comfortable very stretchy fabric so I personally think it's more of the perfect daytime piece.  Pollypop dresses are amazing quality and they have such a fantastic selection!  Lately I'm obsessed with red and leopard print, so I added my favorite leopard heel to complete the outfit.  Halloween is only two weeks away!  Are you enjoying Fall as much as I am?  I have some exciting projects and posts in the works for the holidays.... I can't wait to share more!

Fall Forecast || Weather-Ready Boots

IMG_4656_2

As the air is cooler for Fall, rain is in the forecast, and I love walking as much as possible in this beautiful city, I'm so happy to have found my perfect everyday weather-ready boots by Sole Society.  What I love about these in particular is there is a wedge for height - and as a girl who is used to wearing heels as much as possible, it's nice to have a little more of a feminine approach to my Autumn boot than your average flat riding boot.  The wedge is unbelievably comfortable and I could walk miles in these boots - plus they seem to have amazing traction for rainy days.  I also love their sleek design (I tend to dislike bulky or slouchy boots) and their simplicity has an understated classic, almost 1960's feel that I like.  I'm discovering more and more this is the time of year I love to be outside... I even feel like having an Autumn picnic.  The heat and humidity is gone and I feel it's the best time of year for style and accessories.  I hope you're all enjoying the start to a new season as well!
