Fall in the South

Well, it's officially Fall in the South, although that really doesn't mean much to me. Atlanta is still seeing temperatures in the 90s, so everyone's Fall clothes will be staying out of sight for awhile longer.

Today's dress, a silk creation from Shoshanna, is at least in Fall colors. I love this Marigold hue, a perfect blend of yellow and gold, which goes great with the tan I have somehow developed over the course of the summer (via dog walks and running). The floral print also features shades of chocolate brown, blue and orange. With this color scheme, I feel like this dress would be right at home in the 1970s!

Dress: Shoshanna Carmela Floral Silk One-Shoulder Dress

You can still buy the dress at Neiman Marcus or ShopBop -- and it's on sale! I'm wearing a size two for reference.

Shoes: Manolo Blahnik Specchio BB Pumps in Bronze

I chose the bronze pumps to complete the 1970s vibe, but nude, dark brown or even light blue pumps would work well here, too. The BB Pumps from Manolo Blahnik are still popular, and you can buy them in different fabrics, prints and colors from major retailers like Bergdorf Goodman. (I like shopping there because the store does not charge sales tax in Georgia.)

I tried to relax as much as possible this weekend, because I'm gearing up for a busy week at work. Hopefully it won't be too crazy!
