AUTUMN LEAF

If someone were to ask me where I get my styling inspiration from, I'd blurt out without hesitation, "You guys!" There are so many wonderful bloggers out there, and I follow a great deal of them, and all of their daily outfits give me ideas on how I can wear my own clothes. This inspiration can be as total as mimicking an entire look, or as subtle as trying out a certain pattern with another.

The inspiration for this outfit is from none other than Kim of Anthroholic fame. She has created so many beautiful outfits around the color combination of rich rust-orange with crisp mint green, and it was this color combo that inspired me. It is so unexpected, but it works so beautifully together! Thanks, Kim!

After today's work day ends, I am officially on vacation until January! WOOO HOOOOO! I can't believe Christmas is this weekend, either. Seriously? SERIOUSLY? When did this happen? Thank goodness I already have all the presents gift-wrapped and ready to go!

  1. Omg, this outfit is too adorable! Love how you've layered the different colors and love the pieces individually too! Especially the color of that belt. I was just wearing a cardi over the weekend in a similar color (i think that's my new faaave color!). The traversa looks perfect on you! mine didn't work out - one was too small and the next size was too large so I gave up.
    Lol, I still can't believe Christmas is almost here and the year is about to end!!! It flew by faster that fast - seriously!

  11. Yes, this is a great colour combination. I don't own anything in this rust colour, but I like it. I wouldn't necessarily think of it, but you always inspire my outfit choices, and this time is no different. I'll have to give this rust colour a whirl one day.

  16. I was just in Anthro! I picked up another Volante tee, but in wine (I have it in charcoal too). I love this outfit so much on you. The colors are unexpected, but really pretty.

  17. Awww Amy! You look so adorable, and I'm beyond flattered I inspired you with one of my favorite color combos! Reading this really brightened the crappy day/week I've been having :) So thanks!

  21. Hi Again Amy, I have the dress and the same Cardigan in the same color.Looks great on you! Great idea. I wear mine with the Tick Tock cardigan and my looping lanes belt. Sometimes I wear it with my blooming lattice piece. It's a very versatile dress isn't it? But I have to admit. I'm bad about mixing J. Crew with Anthropologie all the time. To me they seem to mesh pretty well.

  22. Yay for a long break! Hope you get a lot of feasting, gift-giving, merriment and relaxing in there :) And you look great today! Rust and mint is indeed a very Kim (and a very Rosa!) color combo, it's neat recognize the inspiration :) I too am constantly influenced by the ladies in this community and all the various blogs I read!
