Good morning, friends!
I usually hesitate to post on Saturdays because most of you are too busy to check your blogs. But I knew that, if it were me, I wouldn’t want to be kept waiting.
However, before we get to the winner of the giveaway, I have one more style post I would love to share with you. Even though the trunk show is now closed, I couldn’t resist showing you one I put together for my mom.
My mom is a real estate agent and home stager, so she has days where she is sitting in a cold, air-conditioned building as well as running all over town to stages homes, pick up supplies, and host open houses. As you can imagine, it can be a challenge to dress yourself for the many different aspects of your job, while still maintaining a professional image.
On a recent shopping trip, my mom picked out this outfit as a great transitional look for the upcoming season change. The fabric of the shirt is lightweight and comfortable and contains some definite Fall tones which makes it perfect for the transition! Now, as requested, we are going to give her a little help finding the perfect accessories for it.
When I was first looking through the Fall Catalogue with my mom, I showed her this necklace combination, which I thought would be the perfect topping to her new blouse. She was a little unsure at the orange tones in the Terracotta Necklace at first. But, without knowing it, asked about the very same combination when Tarah paired them together at the trunk show! It certainly depends on the lighting, but I don’t think it looks as orange in person. Or maybe it just looks more like an organic orange, if that makes sense. It is a truly beautiful combination, so I built the rest of the look around that. I think the cow horns bring out the color in the Hanoi necklace and the feather print of the cuff just softens the entire look. What do you think?
Since mom was going for a transitional look, I had to show off these booties from Francesca’s. The dark color and style scream Fall, but the peep toe still proves that there’s still a little summer left to enjoy. And the lipstick? Just a personal favorite over here. It’s a bright and beautiful orangey tone, pulling out some of that color in the necklace without being too trendy. (Don’t fear mom, it’s not ORANGE orange! But I have it so you can feel free to try it before committing!)
Well, you guys! Sadly, this brings our Style Me Beautiful posts to an end. Did you have fun watching us put these looks together for you? Because I can tell you, Tarah and I had a blast. Would you be interested in me doing posts like this more often? Let me know in the comments below.
But before I head off, I wanted to share with you the winner of the $25 Noonday Collection Gift Card!!!!!!!!!!!
