OCTOBER 7TH 2016
GOLD LEAVES & CHESTNUT TREES
BEAUTY SPOT: CORBEIL ON, CANADA.
Fall is here!
This post marks my first fall fashion post of the year! I have to admit now that summer is officially over I am embracing everything 'fall'; scented candles, cozy sweaters, cinnamon tea, and pumpkin spice muffins from Tim Hortons!
October truly is a beautiful month. The air is crisp, the weather is fantastic, and the leaves are bursting with colour. These photos were taken in my parents backyard under one of their beautiful chestnut trees. I can remember when we first moved into the house the trees were barely taller than I was as a young girl and now as an adult, they tower over me. I love the bright yellow hue that the leaves turn and with all of the fallen chestnuts beneath the leaves and on the ground, it turned out to be a gorgeous and interesting spot to shoot.
About the outfit:
The dress in this post is from SammyDress marking the second product that I am reviewing for what turned into a two-part collaboration with the company.
Originally I ordered the dress to pair with the angel wing shoes (see last post) however the colour and material appeared different than the photo on the website and didn't match the shoes as I had hoped...sooo I decided wear it as a fall outfit instead, pairing it with black nylons, black and gold accessories, and a bold burgundy lip.
My favourite part of this dress is the low cut back. I really like how the fabric swoops in dramatic fashion to add interest and flare. As you can see I had to belt the waist because it was far too large for me which in turn led to the pairings of the necklace, rings, and clutch - as they all contain gold/green hardware to match the dress. I would recommend it as a great option for holiday parties due to its metallic and sparkly fabric. When you pair it with sparkly boots and a glamorous clutch like I did you're sure to impress. The dress is currently on sale for just fifteen dollars! (see link below) which is a price that's nearly impossible to beat.
So what do you think of my first fall look? I'd love to hear what you think! Feel free to comment below or direct message me via Facebook or Instagram. If you aren't already following me on social media click the social icons at the top of the page for direct links. Until next week! xo
