Florals, for fall?
September sees the rise of wedding season in the South (the summer is just too hot and we’ll be having dry, hot weather through October). As someone from the North, fall weddings have always evoked a sense of coziness and cool temperatures – yielding dress choices that involve velvet, black lace, and jewel tones to compliment the overcast skies and changing leaves. But down South, since the temperatures can still reach 90 degrees, these options just doesn’t seem appropriate (or comfortable)!
I therefore love this green Self Portrait dress that I picked up from UAL as a Southern fall wedding dress choice. It balances a punchy, winter appropriate black & white floral against a transient shade of green with just a little cutout action to keep cool -making it a great guest dress choice for the transition of the seasons.
I’ll be sharing some seasonal transition dressing posts on my blog over the next month, so stay tuned for more styling tips and ideas. And follow me on Instagram for bi-weekly fashion inspiration!
