School Girl Red.

As I mentioned a week ago, this Fall I want to take some of my Summery Dresses and style them for the current season, especially since our Fall has been pretty warm and mild. Today I am showing you another Fit+Flare Dress, which is this Nautical-Inspired, Striped, Ponte Dress by H+M.

So, I played off the Red+White of the Dress and layered with a White Button-Down Blouse underneath (the billowy sleeves make it a little retro-looking), a Silky Scarf which I tied into a Bow and my Cranberry Oxford Shoes. I even added Red Lipstick and Red Ear Studs. For a little Pattern-Mixing I have on some Argyle Black Tights which match the Black Beaded Bracelet and Black Rosette Headband. Clearly, I am a huge fan of Black+Red+White as I showed you last week when I styled the Snow Leopard Dress for Fall. This Outfit totally reminds me of a School Girl Uniform. It is Chic yet a little Edgy because of the styling. I felt Feminine and European in it which I think it's a good thing. 
Have you tried something on that reminds you of a School Girl Look? I love to see your thoughts and takes on this look. 
Red+White Striped, Fit+Flare, Sleeveless Ponte Dress: H&M (New) (very similar, love this), (similar sheath), (similar fit+flare w/ crochet detail, great deal, love this).
Deep Red, Silk+Organza Narrow Scarf w/ Fringe: Borrowed from my Mother in Law (purchased in France) (similar silk scarf by Echo, best deal, love this), (gorgeous option by Brooks Brothers), (red+pink gorgeous option by Kate Spade, love this), (similar, warm scarf w/ fringe, best deal).

Also, once again Marissa and Heidi are doing their bi-yearly Pantone Challenge. Below are the Colors for Fall 2014 (that they selected). My booties and scarf today totally fit Sangria. I will try to link up an outfit this week, every day, for each color. We shall see.
Happy Monday!!
