Fall Friendly

Well, nothing like photographing a mediocre outfit to death right?  I say that because we have had bouts of rain all day ranging from drizzle and mist to pouring heavily.  I took my outfit shots twice because of this.  The first time, I opted for a parking garage, but the lighting was horrendous.  Plus, I am a clutz and spilled Dr. Pepper on the front of my dress in the first ones and you can totally tell. 

Anywho, all bitching aside, when the rain calmed down for long enough, I stopped by this car wash to take my photos.  It worked out a lot better.  

The Fashion Challenge for today is to take a summer dress and make it fall friendly.  At first, I had envisioned just the dress and the vest, but that was a few days ago when it was still scorching outside.  Now, the weather has taken a turn and been gloomy and chilly, so I had to throw in some leggings and booties. 

 This dress, albeit a kind of awkward color to layer, is pretty easy with it being strapless.  I typically have to layer it in some form or fashion since, well, I'm still waiting to outgrow my training bra.  Wa waaaaaaaaa . . .

Well, ladies.  I'm outta words.  So I leave you with the following pose in which I look like I'm gonna cut someone.4

  1. I'm proud of you for even getting pictures today. I didn't get any! By the time I got home and it had stopped raining, it was also dark. I like this outfit! Those booties are super cute and you've done a great job taking this dress from summer to fall.

  2. Those boots are rocking and I love how you took the lilac dress from summer to fall with the beautiful sweater vest! My outfit photos today were taken in a parking lot so yours are a step up from mine! :)

  4. Love that purple and grey combo! I wore a similar color combination a few days ago and realized that I need more grey in my life (in the form of clothes only, not skies!)

  5. I really love how this combination turned out! The color palette is especially wonderful, especially for the season. I like the hints of silver that come up in the zipper detailing, shoes, and other accessories. It really makes for a polished look! The outfit came out wonderfully and you look completely ready for the fall season. Excited to see what you come up with for the rest of the challenge!

  14. Thanks Angeline! I think so too. Although, it's hard to tell since I can spot my bra straps in nearly every picture. Ah, well.

  15. I looked, and you totally cannot see the Dr. Pepper anywhere on you.
    I love the way that you remixed this for fall! It looks like it was made for this season.

  16. Aww i love this layered look. Purples and greys are some of my favorite pairings. Love those boots. Also I don't see any Dr. Pepper spots.

    Oh and Hubs found his keys! Apparently in his jacket pocket (we had two cold days this week - go figure)

  19. Hee hee! Your post made me laugh because we all have days when nothing works out. But I think you did a great job remixing your summer dress. I like the purple and gray, especially the boots. If you were here, I might threaten to cut you for them.
