There’s more to love:
I bought this dress a few months ago with the intent to wear it during next week’s Florida vacation, but it made an early debut when the mercury rose to 76 degrees. The loose silhouette is perfect for hot days…even if you’re at risk of a Marilyn Monroe moment when the wind picks up! I especially like how the petals of this Gerard Yosca necklace perfectly mimic the pleats in the dress. And, on that note, don’t forget to enter to win your own jewelry set from Gerard Yosca. There’s a daisy pendant and earrings up for grabs here. It’s a prize valued at $252!
[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]A[/dropcap]utumn rain always seems to catch me by surprise. Just yesterday I neglected to peek at Weather Underground and scampered off to work in a pair of ballet flats only to find myself dashing through a downpour after work. My car wasn’t far away, but it was still enough time for my shoes to fill with water (and if you think an evening commute is bad, try it with wet, cold feet). That miserable experience offered plenty of motivation to arm myself with an arsenal of rainy day attire that can handle the chilly precipitation, starting with a pair of Joules rain boots.
I already own a pair Joules wellies in turquoise, which I adored last winter, but I’d love to add a more subdued pair to my wardrobe in either olive or black. The glossy finish pairs well with classic, sophisticated items. Try a cropped quilted jacket and a menswear-inspired scarf for a casual look or go glam with a faux fur scarf (it also comes in the prettiest emerald green) and a cozy wool coat. Whatever you do, make sure you stick with a saffiano leather purse. The textured finish repels water and keeps the bag looking pristine.
