Fall Florals Styled by The Outfit Repeater

Super fun post today!  Back in August I sent Hannah, AKA The Outfit Repeater, an e-mail asking if she would be interested in doing a blog collab. We agreed to play virtual stylist for each other and come up with an outfit for the other person based on a specific item in their closet.  I have enjoyed Hannah’s blog for a while and really admired her sense of style, so virtually pawing through her clothes was AWESOME. And when she sent me her ideas for my outfit I had a huge “Duh, why didn’t I think of that?!?” moment.

Here is the item I asked Hannah to style.  It’s an orange enamel necklace that I impulsively bought last year but have yet to wear.

And here is the AMAZING yet so obvious outfit pairing Hannah chose for me. The dress is one of my absolute favourites and I am complimented on it every single time I wear it.

Here is what Hannah had to say about her inspiration for my outfit: When Christina showed me the orange statement necklace she wanted styled, I knew a colorful outfit would compliment it well. To fit her casual lifestyle, I picked out a brightly colored floral dress, matching cardigan, and some neutral flats to pull it all together. Despite the ol’ cliche of florals being reserved for spring, I think the orange-y hue of this dress compliments autumn colors nicely. And hey, maybe florals for fall will catch on?

I love how this outfit looks, even without the necklace but adding it provides a little something special!  This style collaboration has inspired me to look at my clothes in a new light.  Normally, I would not have worn this neckalce with this dress, but now that I see how great it looks I am wondering how many other awesome combos outfit/accessory combos does my closet hold?!

Be sure to head over to Hannah’s blog to see how I styled an item for her. And while you’re at it, check out The Outfit Repeater on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
