An Autumn Floral

I can hear the siren's call of autumn stirring in the evening breeze; a quiet, yet persistent sound echoed in the ivy leaves starting to turn red...Our days of cozy clothes and quiet evenings indoors aren't far away, especially if you happen to live in a climate like my own where summer is always too fleeting. It's already brisk enough most days here for a cozy sweater and boots, although I've been avoiding fully sartorially succumbing to the new chill in the air. Instead of tights and booties, I've made a concession to the shift by mixing more autumn colors and accessories into my outfits and this floral dress by Trashy Diva is a perfect piece for transitioning. Trashy Diva always makes some of my favorite dresses; I started buying their pieces while I was a college student and I still have them now--timeless cuts in unique prints that will always be staples in my wardrobe. A pretty floral print like this one still nods to summer, but in a color palette that is made for fall dressing. Switch out the sandal clogs for my favorite pair of brown heeled oxfords paired with jewel-toned tights and a fitted tweed jacket and you're ready for walking over crunchy brown leaves (don't you love the sound of dried leaves underfoot in autumn?). For now this was a perfect weekend outfit while we spent a night away at our favorite cottage in the Mournes (more on that later). I love getting away even if it's only for a night or two to this region; there's a lot of beauty in this area to explore and the cottage itself is always a delight to come back to in the evenings. With no phone reception or wifi it makes for the perfect relaxing time with a good book and crackling fire.
