This month's theme is: Fall Favorite.
For me, this theme is all about my fall uniform or ideal go-to fall ensemble. As you know, I am crazy about my wide calf boots, having searched high and low for a long time to find some that fit me correctly. I pull them out as early as I can and wear them every chance I get. I have always had luck with boots from Avenue, though I can't say that I have tried on too many other brands. I do know that as someone with a 21-inch calf size, the stretchy and lace-up Avenue boots fit me great! My calves are now 19 inches, so I have a few more options but I still go back to Avenue. (PS - If you need a pair of boots to fit your 21-inch calves, my lace-up pair are too big now and I need to sell them. Email me.)
So let's build my favorite fall look! I started with this Flor skater dress via a recent Gwynnie Bee shipment. Flor is a GB house brand that is only available through the Gwynnie Bee service. While I don't feel the material is high quality (it's a polyester that seems to pill easily), I do feel that they are well made. I love the silhouettes, patterns, and colors in the Flor line. I just wish they would up their game with better fabrics. This particular dress has a crossover V-neckline and a fuller than A-line skirt. I love the style and ease of this dress. The length is a little short for me on its own, so using it in a fall look with leggings is ideal for me. The muted pinks, purples, and greens are so pretty. I really do adore the unique patterns this brand uses in their garments. (You may also remember that this blue and green leopard look is a Flor dress.) I am wearing this dress in a 3X. They carry up to a 5X.
Cute dress. Leggings. Boots. Check! This sweater turned out to be the perfect shade of teal green to match the leaves in the pattern of the dress. I lucked out with that. I love the over-sized, cozy look of the outfit with the sweater that adds to that "fall" feel. Finally, I added this gorgeous pink-toned, burgundy, sequined scarf I picked up recently from Wal-Mart of all places. I don't shop there much, but the sequins caught my eye and I had to have this one. They had a TON of colors in this soft knit with mini sequins scattered throughout.
