I’m not an orange lover by any means, but a rich rust shade absolutely proves my exception to that rule. If anything, burnt apricot tones are some of my very favourite of all colours, and certainly some of the tones I most look forward to in autumn. Whether it’s on my person or on the trees (and thus, eventually, the ground,) the cinnamon tones of fall is probably the single thing that brings me the most joy in that season. As such, it can be no great surprise that I fell in love with this Tawny dress by Hell Bunny the moment I clapped eyes on it. It may be dreary and wintery outside now, but let’s fall back into autumn with Tawny.
As much as I love both mustard and check prints, it must be said that it’s hard to find clothing that utilises both at once. Well, this season seems to be my lucky season for just such a combination, because this is my second mustard plaid of this autumn and I am full of glee!
If there’s a perfect name for this pinafore–and the plaid it shares with the rest of its jointly named collection–it is certainly the Teen Spirit pinafore. There’s no doubt the bold block plaid is giving me 90s grunge vibes, even as the shaping of the skirt leaves room for vintage styling. We love a hybrid.
Spring may be on its way–hell, technically speaking, it may already be here, but judging by the winds whistling down my chimney and clattering against my windows, the weather itself didn’t get the memo. I feel wholly justified, therefore, in reaching not only for sleeves but for plaid, and this Brooklyn dress by Unique Vintage is the perfect choice for both.
Oh, what’s this? Mooooore tartan? I don’t mind if I do!
No, but seriously, I know I own a lot of it, but I actually don’t own a single pinafore dress, let alone a tartan one, so this post was practically overdue. Let’s get down to it!
If there’s one thing that makes a great staple wardrobe piece for autumn and winter, it’s a flannel circle skirt with pockets. And if there’s another, it’s a velvet top that can be dressed up or down throughout the whole season. As luck would have it, Heart of Haute has us covered with both.
I like plaid. Big plaids, small plaids. Green, blue, grey, brown, red plaids. Subtle plaids, obnoxious plaids. I don’t think I’ve ever met a plaid I didn’t like, but admittedly the plaids that populate my wardrobe all tend to be rich or bright in colour, proud to be plaid and loud. I don’t yet have the kind of plaid that flies under the radar, that can host a dinner party without looking very seasonally eager. Well, I didn’t have that kind of plaid. Now, thanks to Sally, I’m Dinner Party Plaid ready.
YOU GUYS, I AM TOO EXCITED TO EVEN DO ANY PREAMBLE FOR THIS POST BECAUSE LOOK, LOOK AT THIS INSANE PLAID DRESS AND PERFECT GREEN CAPE I’M FEATURING TODAY! YEAH, EXACTLY, IT’S AMAZING, SO LET’S JUST GET RIGHT TO IT BECAUSE I CAN’T WAIT!
You guyyyys, Autumn is here! I know that, really, it’s been here for a couple months already and that next month actually marks the start of winter, but I swear the leaves have taken longer to turn this year than they usually do, so as often as I’ve been squealing and crooning in delight about it being fall, it’s only now truly starting to feel it through and through. And I am, as I’m sure you’re sensing, pretty freakin’ psyched about it!
I love that Autumn style means plaids and tartans, rich tones and moody colours, flannels and velvets. The gold leaves and our warm houses aren’t the only part of the season that feels lush with such snuggly style options abound, and this outfit from Doll Me Up I’m sharing with you today definitely feels like it fits in with the season perfectly.
Another day, another plaid beauty to add to my closet, because I am beyond help. Although, actually, this time I can’t even be blamed for my obsessive collecting of all tartan and plaid pinup pieces because Dancing Days picked out this outfit for me. That’s right, this time my friends can’t even roll their eyes or laugh at me in bemused exasperation, because I was 100% faultlessly enabled in adding yet more plaid to my wardrobe. Thanks Dancing Days for giving me the perfect excuse, in the form of a wonderful dress. Let’s take a gleeful, guilt-free look at it!
