Fall Zig Zag

September 17, 2012

This dress has been in my closet for more than a month, sadly never getting picked as I gravitated toward neons, shorts and brights throughout August. However, with September comes  a craving for rich, deep hues and light-weight yet more fall-like materials (who cares that I live in humidity-ridden Florida!). This dress totally fits my need-for-Fall style bill. I’m eager to wear so many of the outfits in my closet that I have been abandoned for months now. Are you feeling the same? Ready to dig in to the other half of your wardrobe? Or, still trying to hold on to those summer styles for as long as possible?

PS: like this dress? Stay tuned later this week for a chance to win it or another awesome look from London Times (hello, color block peplum!).

    This dress is so pretty on you - love the colors and the ladylike shape. I completely agree with you on embracing fall - I have already packed up my neon pieces in a bin & taken it out to storage! :)

    I always pack my fall and summer clothes away at the end of the season so when the weather changes, it’s like I’m getting a whole new wardrobe!!! It does limit me a little but the elated “new clothes for free” feeling is definitely worth it!

    I love this dress… You really wear it to perfection!

    That dress looks so great on you! The colors are gorgeous. I’ve been thinking about buying it ever since I saw it on another blogger last week.

    I’m with you, Alyson! I’m ready for the rich colors that fall brings. That being said, Sept is Seattle is still pretty much summer, so I’m riding the fence -autumn hues in light fabrics! Anyway, loving those shoes, don’t think I’d be able to take them off either!!! ~Sarah

    This dress is awesome…I’m so in love with the print! And the flats are awesome as well!

    Such a great dress! The colors in it are so pretty. Perfect fall piece and I can definitely see it with tights when (IF!) it gets colder!

  • Ashley Rainey Sullivan

    Oh wow, that dress is fabulous! I’m kind of struggling with transitioning to fall. I think I’m trying to hold onto summer because I’m afraid as soon as I start wearing my “fall clothes” I’ll get tired of them and want to buy more things. And maybe because I live in Oklahoma and the temperature is still in the 80s/90s :)

    I’m so ready to dig into the other half of my wardrobe, but it’s still super warm here in LA. That dress is super cute! I love the rich colors!
