The September Issue: 10 ways to Style a Wedding Outfit for Fall.

Good Tuesday you all! Today, I am doing the second part of "The September Issue" collaboration. Part one was all about styling a Little White Dress for Fall and you can read that here. You all loved that post and some even e-mailed me about it. Today all of us and a couple of other babes (10 bloggers to be exact), are back to show you how to style an outfit for a Fall Wedding and why it doesn't have to be a dress. Separates and jumpsuits are hot items to wear these days, so think outside a box. But of course I chose a dress - in red, nevertheless - and stayed true to myself.

These (above) are all the ladies that are collaborating with me for "The September Issue" this time around. I noticed a lot of reds and also olive which is such a great Fall color and black and white looks, too. Michelle and I are practically twins in our ruffled, long-sleeve floral dresses. I think this style of a dress is perfect for a Fall wedding because it is flirty, fun and in a fabulous print. You have to stop by the blogs and see the details of their looks. Then you will learn why Chrissy paired her strapless dress with sneakers or why Stephanie is wearing a white dress to a wedding. My favorite looks I think are Roxanne's and Kristin's.

The dress I decided to style for a Fall wedding is this beautiful red floral number by Who What Wear which for the past couple of years has been by far my most favorite brand at Target. I love their modern and flirty style, ready-to-wear pieces and they always have gorgeous florals. I love this print so much, I am considering it in the moto jacket too. This dress suits my style and what I love to wear. I am a dresses person, someone who has always loved and worn ruffles, someone who loves floral year around and of course red is my favorite color. This dress hits several trends in the head, including the fact that Grenadine is considered the biggest color for Fall 2017. And of course this will be a great color to wear through the holidays and Winter. I love the bold print here, it looks like poppies. The red of course is the main color but there is a little purple and black too so those are two great colors to pair this dress with, too. Of course, the way I dressed it up here, is perfect for a Fall Wedding, but you can totally dress this down with a denim jacket and light-colored sneakers or nude/tan booties and matching floppy hat. 

I chose a pair of Suede Black Pumps to pair my dress with. The velvet material and tortoise heels read "It's Fall" (though it has been 90 degrees for days, now) and the fact that the pumps have block heels, makes them comfortable for walking or dancing while you may be a little tipsy, at the wedding lol. These pumps are also by Target and I purchased them before the holidays last year. Mine are not available anymore but you can still find these similar ones with block heelsthese identical to mine but the heels are velvet too (mine are also by Merona) or these classic skinny heel pumps which are on sale and my favorites. My bag has been in my closet for 7 years. It is quilted with a little bit of metallic in the thread, looks like a classic Chanel bag. I gave it to my mom though it was mine but I still borrow it all the time and it is my most-worn bag for dressier events. It is by White House Black Market.

I decided to mix+match metals and crystals as far as my jewelry goes. Everything has been in my closet for a while. My Crystal-Encrusted Gold Teardrop Hoops are by The Limited and they can dress up anything. The Layered Silver-Tone Pyramid Bar Necklace is more casual but it worked here not to upstage the print and ruffles of the dress. I love that one of the pyramid charms is all pave. I also wore a Snakeskin Band Red+Blush Watch with a big round face, layered with a two-stranded Green Beaded Coin Charm Bracelet and I am wearing a Gold-Tone Pave Crystal Snake Ring in one hand and an Asymmetric Glass, Red Cocktail Ring on the other.

Just like last time, this week, I am also co-hosting Shelbee's "Spread the Kindness" Tuesday linkup, today, so add your links on the bottom of this post and stop by her blog as well to check out her Fall Wedding Look.
