Infected with fall





Dress: DIY Vivetta Knock Off (tutorial here!)
Blouse: Goodwill
Socks: Saver's
Shoes: F21
Ring: Estate Sale
Feather Headpiece: Estate Sale

I don't know what's gotten into me lately, but I can't seem to shake the color orange from my system. When Corey and I met up yesterday, he walked up to me and said, "you look like your name should be Autumn." And he was right. This outfit was definitely inspired by all the leaves around me!

We went to take photos on Monday for an upcoming guest post, and again, I was wearing the color orange!  I did a photo shoot with Mitzi at the top of Chenal Mountain on Sunday and not surprisingly, the colors for the shoot were brown, cream, and orange. The trend is bound to wear down soon though. I wore it out too quick and now I have nothing else to show you.

AUGH. THESE COLOURS ARE SO GOOD. You look amazing! I am intrigued that you know someone named Mitzi and I feel that your candy corn photo is adorable and obviously had to be included in your post.

Matching candy to one's outfit is sheer genius.

STARR! Ah, this outfit is awesome!! It totally made my day haha. I love the colors and you do look like your name should be "Autumn"!

I remember when you first posted that tutorial (I think that's around when I first started following) and I have a velvet dress from last year that I should try it on. Thanks for reminding me about it!

Ulrika said...

Love how you´ve customized this dress, you´ve inspired me to do a DIY of the Alexa Chung for Madewell velvet dress. xxx

Me said...

Your thrifting trips really are magic because you always find the best stuff, you are so lucky you are getting fall weather its still in the 80's and 90's in my neck of the woods,instead of golden leaves we get burnt grass!1lol.

Jessica / Lola Vintage Clothing said...

ohh goodness, I'm loving the bodice on that dress!! And just saw there's a tutorial too. Gracias, gracias! Now I just need to find the motivation to MAKE the thing. ;)

Have a lovely weekend!

Midwest Mayhem said...

I cannot express enough how much I love your outfit! It is so perfect for autumn. I love the burnt oranges, you look so lovely!

BarnKitten said...

The dress is wonderful! And I know what you mean, I've fad fall fever since summer. :) Anyways thanks for the tutorial, I can't wait to try my hand at that.

Manja said...

Oh my, I love the mood of your pictures and really really love that dress!

Robyn said...

The fall color palette makes me smile. I especially love the orange socks.

Lydia said...

Every year past, I've been disappointed by the typical "autumn" palette that creeps into stores. I was never really a fan of burnt oranges and yellows, and deep reds and browns. But this year, that's all changed. I'm in love, this is SO PERFECT it's kind of blowing my mind. Too good!
