Look: Fresh Fall Wedding Looks

Remember when May, June and July were THE months to have a wedding?? Does anyone else feel like the new “it” months are September, October and November?? I think people are starting to catch on to the fact that the spring months were wayyyy expensive, not to mention HOT– and every year, my husband and I find that more and more wedding invites pour in for Fall.  I wore this look to a wedding this past weekend, and it truly was one of my fave wedding looks ever.  I’ve done the LBD thing 74373738 times to weddings, as have you and everyone else– black is safe, no danger of competing with the bride– but the problem is you are literally one of the 74646399034 other girls there wearing black.  I’m OBSESSED with this slightly Asian-inspired, jacquard dress from Zara (linked below) because the material definitely says evening event, but the shape and textures are unexpected.  I decided to pair it with my gold and black striped pumps from J.Crew to add a contrast in patterns and therefore, extra interest to the look (complemented with gold accessories, of course!)  I’ve rounded up some of my fave fall appropriate wedding guest dresses out there right now, and two pairs of funky patterned pointed pumps (fall approps cocktail shoe to sharpen the look) that will pair with literally any of the dresses there–in various price ranges that you will DEF stand out in, have fun wearing, and have zero chance of provoking dagger eyes from the bride– not a little black dress in sight, so take the plunge!
Happy fall wedding season!

Mix List: My Pointed Toe Loafer Picks for Fall

If you guys buy one shoe for fall, make it the pointed toe loafer.  By now, we all have multiple pairs of boots and booties in our closet, and heels galore– the freshest way to update your looks this fall is a pair of these guys.  They will ground any look with a more masculine edge– for me, traditional flats feel too expected.  Pointed toe loafers are literally my dream shoe for so many reasons– tomboyish appeal, a sense of irony, sharpness and edge, annddddd comfort! As a teacher, I’m always on the run (sometimes literally lol), so these are my fave way to stay on trend footwear wise, while giving my feet a break during the week from heels!  Some of my fave ways to wear them:
With skinnies, cuffed or shortened to show off some ankle– this is vital…there needs to be a few inches of ankle if you wear pants or jeans with these guys…otherwise they appear more dad-ish than fashion-y.
With dresses, to offset the femininity.
With a mini skirt, leather or suede/denim button up, with a sweater or button up– kinda 70s collegiate vibes…
With overalls, duh.
