Every single Spring season I find myself gravitating toward yellow. I just think it’s a really great Spring statement color. So, while playing around on Polyvore, I chose to make a ‘work wear’ set around this lovely yellow dress by John Lewis. Since it’s still a little cool this time of year (at least on this side of the country ;p) I would definitely pair it with a little leather jacket, especially white because it’s definitely more of a Spring appropriate color for a leather jacket. The hint of a third color comes in with the greyish blue color blocked purse. Shades of blue and yellow pair well together. And of course, I have to add a little whimsy to the whole ensemble with the vintage daisy bracelet and flower shaped earrings ;)
Depending on where you live, September and October can be pretty unpredictable months for weather. Here in CLE, it could still be in the 70’s or 80’s, or it might be snowing by the middle of the month. With that being said, September and October can be pretty tricky months to dress for a wedding.
With a couple weddings coming up to attend, I decided to start pondering ensembles that would be appropriate depending on both the month and the indecisive weather.
First, I thought…these are the months where the leaves are starting to turn all the beautiful colors of red, orange, and yellow…so why would I wear a somber, dark colored dress when Nature is producing all these gorgeous shades!? Color is lively and exciting…and so are weddings! (usually ;) ) So why not portray that through our clothing choices?
Next, I thought it’d be safe to go for something with ¾ sleeves. That way, if it’s cool, at least I’d have some fabric on my arms. And if it’s hot, at least it wouldn’t be super unbearable.
Lastly, a wedding is an excuse to dress up in this uber casual world we’re living in. That includes a pretty up-do, lipstick and perfume as well.
OH! And it’s a wedding…don’t forget to toast that glass of champagne! ;)
