I absolutely love everything about fall! I love the cool mornings and warm afternoons, sitting around a fire and roasting marshmallows, and watching football on tv. Not to mention all the apples and pumpkin desserts!!!! I may or may not have a countdown for the release of Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. Most of all though I love fall fashion! Once school begins, I start dreaming of boots, scarves, and cozy layers. Unfortunately, in Indiana we have quite awhile before we are ready for all those layers I am dreaming of!
To satisfy my fall fashion cravings I have began to flirt around with fall styles! With the temps still warm I am pulling in fall inspiration with rich tones. I tend to gravitate towards mustard yellow, burgundy, navy, and olive green. These colors are in abundance in my closet and what I gravitate towards when shopping.
A sweet friend of mine introduced me to the owner of a fabulous new boutique in town. I was excited to be invited to the soft opening of Meli Mei, which is located in a trendy area in downtown Fort Wayne in the City Exchange. Fall was in full effect at Meli Mei. My fall fashion loving heart was happy!
This dress caught my eye and I couldn’t wait to try it on! The rich fall colors along with the fun floral pattern drew me. The fun and flirty ruffle along the neckline was a unique touch that made this dress stand out to me. I knew I wanted to pair it with my new Tom’s Peep Toe Booties I had picked up at the Nordstrom Sale. I love the fun and flirty vibe from the entire look! It was one of those looks that had me feeling confident from the moment I stepped out the door!
I added a natural stone necklace that I couldn’t resist from Meli Mei. It was just enough to add a touch of detail to the entire look. As I have been drawn to my Centered Jewelry bracelets lately those were a definite must to finish off this entire look. If you are local you need to stop and check out Meli Mei this weekend for their grand opening. If you are from out of town check out their Instagram page. You will not be disappointed. I cannot wait to make a trip back to visit again soon!
