Elegant in Emerald by Stop Staring
I am born and raised in Southern California, a place that is known for its sunny beaches and year round warm weather. However, I love gloomy drizzling skies, when I get to wear my chunky sweaters and Fall colors. About 10 years ago, I moved to Sweden. I was so excited to have seasonal change, gloom, rain, and days of coats and those chunky sweaters. Guess what? I hated it. I left before I had to experience my second winter.
Now that I am back, I am more appreciative to be in So Cal, but I still get a kick of excitement when those lovely summer mornings have a lingering marine layer! Today was just that. The cloud coverage lasted til 3pm. Yes, 3PM! I grabbed all of my Fall inspired outfits, and got to work!
This lovely Emerald piece is amazing. It is a peplum style, wiggle dress from Stop Staring Clothing, which is also available in black. I love the subtle ruffle sleeve, and I'm all in when it comes to bows! The fabric is light weight, but still stretchy and durable, so much I didn't even have to wear undergarments. I know TMI, but really, I look like I'm wearing something right?!?
I accessorized only with a hat, as I felt the dress had enough detail of its own. This vintage, creme colored, felt hat from Polished Raven has touches of feathers in ivory, brown, and green. I'll be wearing this again come my next gloomy day!
