26 Oct Turning Heads Linkup- Ways to Style a Floral Midi Dress for Fall
I shared with you this fancy pantsy maxi dress in red yesterday, for the upcoming Holidays. Today, this floral burgundy dress gifted by Soft Surroundings can be an everyday dress you wear for several seasons.
You all know I love dresses. I feel the most comfortable in dresses and it makes me think back to high school when I probably wore them over jeans. Nevertheless, I chose the red Lagia dress from Soft Surroundings in yesterday’s post to be worn for the Holidays, going to dinner, out to a show. Today, this Natural Romance Dress, from Soft Surroundings is a dress you could wear any day for any occasion. With it’s painterly style, in brushstrokes of olive, burgundy, yellow, rust, it comes alive for Fall. The colors caught my eye, as well as the midi dress style.
I love a midi dress with tall boots, as it continues the leg line, and looks very fashionable.
I chose to wear a predominate color with my suede moto jacket but this dress could be styled many ways.
- Add a long cardigan in one of the Fall shades – continuing a lengthy look.
- Choose a moto jacket that contrasts – perhaps a carmel color or brown.
- ( its too warm for this yet here) Style a sweater over the dress, giving it the look of a midi skirt and sweater.
- Add a neutral colored vest to the look for more structure and a trendy, current vibe.
- Pair with chunky lug sole boots or combat boots for a dichotomy of dressing. Masculine/Feminine look.
I love the colors and the mid length sleeve with gathered wrist is a pretty detail.
I chose a bit of contrast with my Teddy Blake satchel, bringing out the olive green in the dress.
What’s Going On?
I mentioned yesterday we had a doggie play date over the weekend, with a neighbor’s shih tzu. She actually took a running leap into the bath when I was in there. Cracked me up! Dogs can sometimes do the funniest things!
We went to a new greenway near our house for a 3 mile walk on Sunday. It was just beautiful outside and we love exploring new areas to hie and walk.
My Acorn friends ( British TV), there is an excellent show called, “The Beast Must Die” starring Cush Jumbo and Jared Harris . She was a lead actress on American TV’s “The Good Fight”, and I’ve seen here on many British shows. He has been in many programs and played on The Queen. It is so good1 About a mom who loses her son to a hit and run, and takes various measures to do something about it.
I’ve started to do Christmas shopping and am considering doing some Christmas Gift Guides a bit earlier this year due to supply issues.
Outfit * this dress was gifted by Soft Surroundings. My opinion is honest and truthful.
What is one of the ways you would style this midi dress for Fall? I’d love to hear from you in the comments 🙂
