Sartorial Saturday–Anxiously Awaiting Autumn

I don’t know about anybody else, but I am so tired of the heat and humidity of summer. I’ve been hopefully thinking ahead to autumn and cooler days, which had me going through my wardrobe, trying to style an outfit for fall in a fresh way. That’s when I remembered that I’ve been wanting to try wearing a sleeveless dress over a blouse:

I paired the Melania-Abalone blouse with the Jolene-Plum dress (both from the 2021 Miss Candyfloss Toujours Elegant collection). At first glance, you might wonder why I chose these two pieces. The answer is simple…I have worn both the dress and the blouse with the Verena-Bo blazer from the same collection, so I knew they had enough in common to make it work!

I accessorized with a stack of Splendette Duchess Bangles and an Erstwilder brooch like I usually do, but I wore the brooch in a different way this time, pinning it on the bow at my throat…I really like how that looks, and now I wish I had more blouses like this so I could try it with other brooches!

This is a bit more pattern than I usually wear in one outfit, but the dress almost comes off as a solid neutral because the print is so small, so I don’t think it’s too visually distracting.

I really like the blouse and dress look!

I can’t wait to see what Miss Candyfloss has planned for their new autumn/winter collection!
