I think it might be because of the cool mornings we had in Seattle earlier in the week, or maybe it's the shorter daylight hours, but when I was doing some online window shopping this week, I found that I was really drawn to subdued colors and pieces that would transition nicely into cooler weather. I'm no where near ready for fall to be here, but I guess my brain is telling me to start very mildly preparing!
This dress from ModCloth is so, so pretty. The cut and the details of it are really convincingly vintage! If I happened upon this dress in a thrift store, I'd be sure it was from the 50s (until I, being the nerd I am, started turning it inside out to look at how it was made to really figure out the exact era. Seriously. Nerd.). If you love vintage but get frustrated trying to find your size, this would be a great dress to add to your closet!
As it turns out, I have almost no black in my closet, as I tend towards other neutrals most of the time, so when I was thinking about accessorizing this pretty little frock, I thought it would be nice to bring in some pretty tan accessories. That way everything would go nicely with the black in the dress, but would also be more likely to go with a lot of the other colors in my closet. Don't be afraid to mix brown and black! It can be a great combo!
This belt from Anthropologie, which is on sale by the way, would be a great piece to add to any wardrobe. It's casual, but put together, would go with just about any color you tried it with, and is a really great width. I also seem to have a thing for shoes with cutouts lately, so I'm really drawn to these cute tan flats from ModCloth.
The feather brooch is by Kate Rowland, who I've previously expressed my undying love for. Her pieces are so fun and so pretty! Every time I visit her Etsy shop, I'm tempted to buy up the whole lot! I shared another gorgeous tote from Slide Sideways last week, but how pretty is this one? They make the most gorgeous prints!
So how about you? Is there anything you're wishing for this week?
Til next time!
