Me-Made-Outfit of the Week


Me-Mades:
Pants (knickers)

Umm, so Autumn happened yesterday. Long sleeves! Boots! Tights! Anyways, Summer was a massive disappointment and you know what you are going to get with Autumn, so bring it on. I decided to wear my navy Ceylon dress because the curtains it's made from offer a fair amount of warmth. It's also a good option when I want to look more dressed up than usual but with little effort. I'm not entirely sure about the shrug with it though. The front curve of the bolero kind of mimics but also hides the curved yoke of the dress. But it's nice to find an outfit to wear the shrug with that looks good with the applique side rather than the plain side. 

Happy Autumn/Spring everyone!

Looking good! The bolero themes nicely up with ceylon. And I love an everyday ceylon!

Beautiful! I see what you mean about covering some of the details at the top of the dress, but I love the bolero with it!

I think the shrug works. It sets off the colors of the dress. I wish autumn were here, it was 80 degrees ans very humid today.
