i am now in full fall mode. mustard yellow is a must! pairing it with browns and navy add that extra punch. fall has always and will always be about layering. it works out great this day because i don't need a jacket. i don't have to cover up an outfit i am really enjoying. 
and most importantly, i don't have to be cold! 
i love how the dress is bringing out the colors in this blazer. it makes the brown pop, almost becoming a little brighter. with this outfit, like many others, it is the little details that make big differences. 
a simple belt adds to the color scheme and brings attention to the smallest part of your shape. basic jewelry can make a bold statement when there is not too much going on or too much to look at. and of course, accessories like your bag. i chose this one for a reason. on the day i bought the blazer (part of set with a matching skirt), i also bought the bag. i had imagined in my mind wearing the suit with a floral printed shirt in deep fall colors and with this bag. i love the idea of mixing prints and by keeping the colors similar, it would be okay to have three different prints mixed into an outfit, especially when one is just an accessory. so immediately after getting dressed, i went straight for this bag. not only does it add a bit of fun, but it also adds to the ladylike look of this outfit. 
it may not have been the crazy print outfit i had envisioned (keep a look out for it!), but it is fall and it is fun. and it makes the little things stand out just a bit more.
