Sartorial Saturday–Falling for Gingko

Today I’m taking a look at a Miss Candyfloss dress that’s very different from my usual style…the Kelly-Tara stretch dress in shades of blue with a stunning gingko leaf print!

I had to wear my Erstwilder gingko leaves brooch (of course!), and that set the tone for the rest of my accessories, including a stack of Splendette duchess bangles and a green belt that I really wish I had just left off because it kept slipping…live and learn!

My plan was to photograph this dress by my favorite gingko tree in town once its leaves turned that beautiful, buttery, gingko yellow and started carpeting the ground. But I’m not sure it’s going to happen this year (they’re predicting sparse fall color and the leaves aren’t looking so good), so I just went ahead and took the pictures while the leaves were still green. It’s the thought that counts, right?

As I mentioned, this dress is very different for me. It’s soft and stretchy, with no zippers or buttons at all. The skirt is also a bit more narrow than my usual twirly styles. But it’s lovely and easy to wear…kind of like a sundress for the cooler months!

I love how soft the material is!

This is going to be a dress that’s going to get a lot of wear!

I’m glad I tried something different…it’s fun to add a new style to my rotation!
