WIWW: Saying Goodbye to My Favorite Outfit of the Season

Monday I wore my favorite cool weather outfit. I predict it's the last time I'll get to wear it until Columbus Day. I'm feeling a little bittersweet about that.


Hair: Efforts of many days of just going with it post twist out. LOL! // Earrings: Aye' Shanti Designs  // Cubic Zirconia Necklace: Dahlia Kanner Studio // Silver Bracelet: 70s hippie vintage (via Mom)  // Dress: by Maeve via Anthropologie (sale rack, but you already know!) // Shirt: Free People (I've had this shirt for 15 years and it's still in good shape. Free People clothing is totally worth the price!) // Tights: HUE knit  // Shoes: Sam by Dansko

This is my favorite outfit because of the marriage of color, texture (cord dress & knit tights with red french knot nubs to die for!), pattern (birds, nests, butterflies & blooms print shirt and on earrings), and shine (bracelet and wee cubic zirconia on necklace). Color, texture, pattern, and shine are four elements of a great outfit, at least according to What Not to Wear. There's a fifth element, but I can't remember what it is. Does anyone know?

  1. Love this look!

    I hope you have a blast wearing this today since you will be retiring it until Fall. I too will have to say goodbye to a few fun pieces until then too.

    Do you love your Danskos? I am thinking about a pair for the Fall during my kids' sports seasons. Are they waterproof?

    1. I just got these and I highly recommend Danskos. They are soooooo comfortable. I don't like to wear shoes in the house but sometimes I cheat and keep these on because even just sitting around in them makes my feet feel better. they give your foot so much support. i hope to get another pair soon, that's how much i love these!

      I'm not sure if they are waterproof or even resistant. I usually wear wellies on rainy days.

      thanks for stopping by :-)

  2. Love those shoes, great with tights.

    1. thanks! i think i'll get a lot of cross season wear from these shoes.

  3. Such a cute outfit! Love the color of the your dress, and those shoes are fabulous. I've been eying similar shoes from an online shop. It seems like so many people have them and I always admire how they look with cute tights and dresses.

    Love how you pay so much attention to detail - the subtle dot in your tights and the earrings. Very well done. I'm afraid I don't pay very much attention to details. I bet I would look more pulled together if I did. There's always something to work on. ;-)
