How to: Florals for Fall

 In case you didn't know - I'm from the East Coast in the United States. And because of some very serious hurricanes coming through It's been raining here every single day for the past week! Today was the first time I've been able to take outfit posts for this week! And the weather hasn't even been that great for taking photos - overcast. A photographers worst nightmare. Ahh so behind! But anyways - the outfit. 

Floral isn't really a print people associate with Autumn/Winter. But I love wearing florals all year round. Some of my favorite prints are ones with black undertones, which I think go perfectly for fall. They aren't too bright but they still appeal to my floral needs in my wardrobe. 







I picked up this dress this summer from Value Village without trying it on. (Value village doesn't have dressing rooms?? I don't know why not.) Thankfully, it fits me perfectly! It's originally from Urban Outfitters so I was pretty happy to find it. I didn't really wear it this summer but now that the weather is cooling down I feel like it's a bit more seasonally appropriate. One of my favorite details in the back because it's got this cute criss-crossing detail, which is nice if it's still not too chilly! 




I've never owned a leather jacket but I love the tough look of them. I found this black jacket last summer at Nordstrom and knew it had to be mine. It reminds of the look of a leather jacket but thinner aka perfect for layering! My necklace was a gift and it features my birthstone - Peridot. I love how the green goes with the hint of green in the dress. 


I apologize for the dirtiness of my flats - they have gone everywhere with me! They are just a faux suede flat from Payless. I just love the bow detailing of them! So cute. 


I hope you liked this post and as always - let me know what you think in the comments!

  2. Such a gorgeous dress! I love florals myself and this is the perfect way to wear them for fall. :) Your flats are ADORABLE too!

    And I can totally relate, I am so behind on outfit photos right now! Ugh. I actually took mine in the rain on Saturday because I couldn't take it anymore. Haha. (It didn't go all that well, though haha).
