Style Files // Layered Leaves

As promised, I wanted to show you a few more goodies that I found from the H&M sale, amongst others. There’s also special pink Monki number coming up somewhere in the other shopping haul.

I bought this dress for seven dollars, as well as the studded belt! Even though the dress was in the summer section, I am making it a garment for all seasons. It’s travel-friendly, and will transform easily from summer to fall with a jacket and Tee layered with tights for colder months. I wore it both ways, and I scored this feather necklace and hunter green tights for three dollars plus an unexpected additional twenty percent discount ... I quickly paid and asked no questions!

My “Big Ticket Item” as I mentioned before will be very useful throughout the season—in this entire outfit, it was the khaki snood. The colour is neutral and it’s an excellent knit piece for me to pile on top of just about everything else for winter.
I am finding that with all of the technology that we have with Smartphones sometimes it's a bit much, but then there are most where it can really save you. Since I am an avid online shopper, I used another new app that I came across called, Price Watch. It works well for price comparing, and it caters to online shoppers, especially if you love Amazon. Although, I am not thinking about holiday shopping quite yet, I scanned barcodes with it as I shopped for other things, and used price comparisons for a variety of items.

This outfit was inspired by the unequivocal liveliness of autumn colours particularly found in gourds, the hues of pumpkins and squash, the changing of forest leaves, and the setting sun splashed across the night sky. What do you think of my harvest fashion blend?

Have a wonderful weekend! What are your plans? 
I will likely try to visit a couple of vintage stores, and search for fabric (with a French aesthetic) to make a valance.

    I am seriously in love with that dress / scarf combo - it is the epitome of fall fabulousness!

    P.S. I am so with you on matte nails. I never thought I'd like them; but I'm kind of obsessed. I love them the most for fall - no clue why! :P

  7. Hi Madison! Wow das Kleid war ja echt ein Schäppchen. Obwohl es ein Sommerkleid ist, passt es wirklich perfekt zum Herbst. I love that you styled it with the snood and the cool khaki tights. I'm looking for a new phone and I already had my eyes on the Nokia Lumia. Ist es denn wirklich empfehlenswert? Have a wonderful Friday. I don't have any plans yet. I might just read the book I'm reading right now :D

    I think you've totally fall-ified (that's a word, trust me) that dress - it looks great with the coloured tights!

  12. I saw the outfit on Instagram and was immediately drawn to the snood! It's really nice! I was looking forever for a similar dress that I could wear with cardigan and boots during winter! Wasn't that lucky!

  39. Dressed with soul26 October, 2014

    Liebe Madison, das Kleid war wirklich unglaublich günstig, und dabei ist es so schön und Du hast es einfach perfekt für den Herbst gestylt! Ich mag besonders, dass Du eine grüne Strumpfhose dazu trägst. Das Wochenende ist ja schon fast wieder vorbei, aber ich habe es genossen, denn mein Mann und ich haben nicht nur einen schönen Ausflug gemacht sondern wir haben schöne Zeiten zusammen in meiner Familie verbracht. Ich wünsche Dir eine wundervolle neue Woche!

    Alles Liebe von Rena
