Hello, friends, welcome to October! I am kinda really excited about today’s outfit post for a couple reasons: 1) I have been waiting to wear this dress for what feels like forever (so, like, a week haha!) and 2) it was super misty yesterday morning and I knew that would make the perfect atmosphere for a photo shoot – yippee!
I absolutely love misty mornings like this, too bad it is still pretty hot here and the sun burned off all the fog by 8:30 am. Oh well, at least I got to wear my new lace detail dress!
I am wearing a white lace detail dress (H&M) with a blush hued military-inspired jacket (H&M) and olive green canvas booties (O’Neill via Ross). I accessorized with a pair of matte gold heart shaped stud earrings (American Eagle), a vintage butterfly brooch (gift), my favorite vintage faux opal ring (Etsy) and a vintage dark emerald green Coach crossbody purse (Etsy).
There are a lot of things I like about this outfit, but mostly I love the vintage feel of the dress, which I played up with vintage accessories. I also love the combination of the delicate, vintage details with more modern and trendy accents like the military style jacket and booties.
I love playing with contrasts to make an outfit more interesting and add my own unique spin. How do you like to individualize your style?? As always, thanks for reading :), Kristi
PS. There was the cutest squirrel hanging around looking for me to give him food while I was taking pictures! While I don’t encourage feeding wild animals, I couldn’t help snap a pic of the cutie anyway :)
