Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue....
SOMETHING OLD. My plaid sweater wrap is one of my most favorite purchases ever from Anthropologie. This beauty has already weathered a few years of wear but I am still continually finding new ways to style it. Thankfully plaid is popping up all over the runways for fall so I am surprisingly fashion forward with this oldie but goody. There is a beautiful metallic silver thread woven throughout the plaid that is so subtle yet eye catching in the right light. The back of the wrap gathers in a way that makes it unique. I always keep my eyes open for pieces that have a unique cut but are in a good neutral print or color palette so they can withstand years of good use!
SOMETHING NEW. In my opinion the brand Alice and Olivia has one of the absolute best uses of color and print out right now. As a stylist I am continually looking for clothes and colors that will "pop" on camera and A and O deliver every time. Purple in all shades is one of my favorite colors for this fall and winter. I love the saturated hue on this silk A and O slip dress. Just the "pop" I was looking for.
SOMETHING BORROWED. I wish this bag was mine. One of my most dear friends was gracious enough to let me borrow it for this look. I feel fortunate to be apart of a group of friends who love and support each other without competition. We are always loaning and borrowing our clothing and accessories to help the other one feel and look her best for any special occasion. Plus we always find new inspiration in each others closets. In this case my eyes glazed over as soon as I saw this bag. I loved how the snakeskin print would add pattern and texture to any outfit. I knew right away that I wanted to use it for a look on the blog.
SOMETHING BLUE. Obviously the dreamy turquoise of the aforementioned bag is what I am referring to here. A perfect contrast to the violet purple of the dress. The little burst of turquoise makes this outfit in my opinion.
Lots of amazing new pre-Fall looks will be coming your way in the next few days. Stay tuned!
