Autumn Florals

My daughter Jean (Jean of all Trades) wrote an article Floral Dress for Fall and inspired me to imitate her look with my floral mini dress, a denim jacket and red tights, perfect transitional outfit. I get a lot of inspiration from her as well as from other fashion bloggers.

Florals for fall are a way of extending the summer feeling; with jackets and cardigans we can get more wear out of summer clothes. Since my three children have their own homes, I enjoy the luxury of having my very own dressing room. That means I never need to pack away “out of season clothes” and get more wear out of everything.

Jean got her floral mini dress at a clothing exchange. Add a denim jacket with tights and boots, she’s ready for cool autumn days. Read more

  9. Hi Carmen, this is a great transition into fall! I love how the tights are a match for the rose print in the dress. The booties and jacket give it a nice casual look for fall. The background of the leaves changing is stunning! You and Jean nearly match identically. I’ve told you before you could pass as sisters! Flowers are for the eyes as music is to the ears! I will have to remember that one! Have a blessed Sunday, Terri xo.

    You’re going to laugh because we are all wearing some kind of floral print next week on the blog for our Ageless Style group. It’s so nice to incorporate this print all year long!!

      Thanks so much! What a lovely saying! ❤️

      My daughter is a treasure! She is the one who inspires me in fashion and blogging, but more importantly, she influenced me to be vegan. We are both kind to animals and do not want to harm them or cause them to suffer for fashion or food or entertainment. I am thankful for a healthy lifestyle which also helps to care for our planet.

      Jean has two blogs (one for fashion, one for compassion) and is also owner of an eco boutique in Seattle: all fair-trade, vegan, eco friendly fashion for women and men.
