I’m learning to embrace the color green. It’s never been one of my favorites but when I wear it, I get compliments. Because I always love the symbolism of colors, I had to look this one up: vitality, fresh growth, and wealth. It’s generally thought of as balanced, healthy, and youthful. And, green is used in design for spaces to foster creativity and productivity. It’s also a color you will see a lot of in various shades this Fall. Colors vary from emerald to military green to olive.
I’m adding a little green to my black dress and mixing up the shades. My earrings are dark olive green cut glass with gold accents. I think gold works particularly well with green. Oh, and I really try not to do the “Christmas look” with red and green (except for the hair!). this dress is fantastic…easy, flowy and will be a staple in my winter wardrobe because I can layer it under a sweater or jacket. The boots are so comfortable and in a mossy dark green. I would love to get these boots in black as well because they are so versatile and comfortable. Enough heel to make you feel like you’re wearing one but not too much to kill your feet. A perfect mix! Topping off the outfit is this green saddle bag…hot trend for the Fall. It’s stylish and fits everything you need for daily use. The bonus is a cross body strap.
I absolutely love a long vest, jacket or as I’m wearing here, cardigan. I think they are dramatic and grab attention. I can also wrap the ends around my legs when I’m sitting in air conditioning all day and keep warm!
This long gray cardigan balances out the shorts. I paired the distressed jean shorts with a graphic t-shirt. This one is actually a men’s t-shirt and was a lot cheaper than most women’s. I needed a punch of color so I added these great red boots. It has been a long time since I wore these boots all day but it felt good to get back into them! A few simple accessories finished off today’s look. If you are local to Lancaster and do not own a pair of Mio Studio earrings (or any of their jewelry) you should go get some! I wear mine all the time and whenever I am traveling someone stops me and asks about my earrings or tells me how much they like them. Seriously, all the time!
I know there are alot of people who are ready for the warm weather to go away, but not me! I would love to stretch Summer out as long as possible. But, as the nights start to get cooler earlier I’ve been able to begin introducing some of my Fall clothing.
Anyone who follows my blog knows I wear boots all year-long. Fall means I can finally break out my OTK boots though. I have to say it’s probably one of the few things I like about cooler weather! This pair is not only stylish but they are actually comfortable to wear. I love the look with this mini and a simple t-shirt. One of the Fall trends is longer jackets, coats and vests. This tan version is going to make alot of appearances throughout the season for me…the length adds great drama and a little polish to this outfit. It also has a belt giving it a completely different look. If you work in a more formal office, pair this with a midi skirt and heels.
I layered on the accessories this time with earrings, a cool necklace (can be combined with other long necklaces as well) and bracelets. Usually I don’t add all those pieces, but it seems to feel right this time. The finishing touch is a fabulous fringe leather bag. It’s a great neutral gray color.
