How is everyone today?
If you have followed my blog for long enough you might just recognise this Cacharel floral print dress and might remember me saying that it's an absolute favourite of mine and for many reasons, one mainly being it's versatility. A couple of weeks ago I had this outfit idea in my head and knew this dress would be perfect for what I was looking to attempt, luckily enough it was.
When putting this look together I was definitely feeling inspired by modern grunge and autumnal layers, so I decided to try and incorporate the two into my outfit. I found this vintage blazer of mine that I had been praying that I hadn't thrown out and thanks to my good habit of keeping everything, I hadn't and it was safely hung up. I made use of it by tying it around my waist, see i'm so cool like that! It worked well in creating a subtle print clash with the dress as the two prints are classic whilst still giving a chic nod to the grunge trend we are currently seeing and will continue to see through to next season. I layered this oversized grey cardigan and my winter favourite this Joseph military-inspired coat to create cosy autumn layers but at the same time creating structure that gave balance to the look and also in doing this it slightly covered up the jacket tied around my waist, which made it appear far more subtle and gave the impression that it kinda just ended up there. Of course we all know that it didn't just happen by fluke.
Well I finished of with my newest black ankle boots, I hope you're not bored of them yet as there is still a lot more outfit posts to come with these babies! Also my Prada tote to lift the ladylike tones of my floral dress.
