Turning Heads Linkup- Fall Collection Karina Dress-The Ruby

Hello Friends!

You all know by now I have great things to say about Karina dresses! I was asked to choose a dress from their Fall line and I knew the Ruby was a fantastic choice! I have a Ruby style ( faux wrap) dress in another print, and fell in love with this gorgeous burgundy floral print with hints of pumpkin, pine green and pink.

This day we went to Corckscrew at Birkdale, a wine bar where my husband and I like to kick back and enjoy the day. Very puppy friendly, Gibson and Truffles feel right at home with other pups out on the patio. I decided to do a shoot near there before we ate/drank.

I never get tired of burgundy. It is one of those Fall colors that goes with so much and yet, I can still be creative with colors. This dress, as all of Karina dresses is wrinkle free, so I will be taking it to my nephew’s wedding when we stay in Asheville with the family in a large house for a week. Can’t wait.

Another transition to Fall outfit, this dress will later be worn with my new plum Jambu shoes as well as some booties I look forward to wearing. Nothing says Fall like patterned tights, so I look forward to also incorporating those into my Fall outfits. 

Doggy Bomb!

FALL  florals are on trend ( as they were last year) and the darker palette makes it Fall ready! The Ruby is a wonderful style, one of top 3 favorites as it has 3/4 length sleeves for cooler weather and is a faux wrap style dress. I could live in this dress! As school is now beginning, I wish I would have known about Karina dresses when I was a teacher. They would have been great to wear to the classroom, with no ironing and wash and wear. Easy dressing when you are in a hurry in the morning!

    I always love the palettes you choose and this is no exception. I’ve been wondering why there is so little brown in this year’s fall fashion offerings, so I’m glad to see you’re wearing it. You know I adore vintage brooches, so I’m obviously on board with those too.

    Burgundy is a super colour on you Jess and the sprinkling of complimentary colours gives you so much creativity to play with. I love the double brooch idea – they work so well together. And those pooches of yours are so cute, they’re the ultimate accessories!

    Have a lovely week!

    You look fabulous in that color and crossover style dress. A floral pattern in that color palette is perfect for Fall and your accessories were an excellent choice. You will surely be “turning heads” with this look. Thanks for sharing and the link up.

    Oh that is an absolutely beautiful dress! Love the style, colour and print. I think this is my favourite outfit of yours ever! It’s a shame faux wrap dresses don’t work for me (I’m petite and they usually don’t sit at the right spot) or I’d be buying this!

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a lovely start to the week 🙂

    Gawd-zooks Jess…. you’re a knock-out in this dress!
    Those pins are to die for (have you got your Mum to thank for those?).
    You look elegant yet flirty and girly and I love your accessorising.
