suede & floral

Back in September I told myself I would keep an organized planner, eat less late-night pizza, and stop reaching for Nutella once the clock struck midnight. However, those goals never made it past October, and that batch of brand new stationary started losing its motivational shine. My plan to go for frequent runs by the gorgeous Charles River pretty much halted two weeks in.

But today, I did the next best thing — shoot an outfit by it! The Charles was stunning in the sun, and served as a great reminder to take more advantage of its beauty (and go on those runs).

I’ve been wearing too much black and gray lately, and have been trying to add a little bit of color to my wardrobe. This floral dress caught my eye: the fit is flattering, and the cooler hues suit late fall days as well as warmer seasons. (Swap the tights and boots for a pair of ballerina flats and you’re set for spring.)

I paired the dress with a red suede jacket to give the outfit a twist, and a bit more edge and texture.

    This dress is so flattering! The print and shape are just fantastic. I love how you paired it with those knee high boots as well. What a stunning combination!

      I’m going to Vegas + Hawaii for Christmas break! What about you?

      And I’ll make sure to check out your video soon – I have a fear of heights and could never go skydiving but I wish I had the courage too. It seems like such an amazing experience 🙂

    Love the color combo :), the blue and purples of the floral dress go so nicely with the red jacket. The bag also just adds a little cuteness to it as well. Love the pairing.

    Ps. I LOVE the closure on the Chloe bag, always been one of my favorites.

    Great watercolor floral print on your dress. It has a whimsical feel to it and it compliments your red jacket so well!

    I’m really enjoying this suede and floral mix! I love finding fashion blogs since makeup is more my forte, not so much fashion so I enjoy finding fashionistas 😉 adaatude.com
