I decided to play with a fall color palette for this look. I'm not the biggest fan of orange but there are a couple of shades of orange that really speak to me. You guys can probably guess that I love coral but rustic oranges have always held a special place in my heart. Give me a shade of burnt sienna or burnt umber and be still my heart. My skirt and tank combo pull from some of your typical harvest colors. Yummm… makes me think of pumpkin pie. I could totally wear this to my office Thanksgiving party or my cousins Thanksgiving dinner. It's a classic type of pairing that's versatile enough to work in a number of settings.

Let's talk details. The skirt features this great ruching that is oh so flattering to the figure. That, along with the somewhat busy pattern is enough to hide some tummy sins. My top has a cute little zipper  in the back towards the nape of the neck. I decided to compliment this with a pump that features a sexy zipper detail on the back of the heel (Sort of like the Tom Ford heel but several hundred dollars less). And that., ladies and gentlemen is how you do Rustic-fierce. Find the details on how to re-create the look below:








So I posted about the Wine Women & Shoes Event and how great that was.  Now I’ll give you the scoop on what I wore. My thought process was to go with something dainty and chic to mirror the tone of this this sophisticated but fun brunch. My lace shirtdress featured a full skirt with a nude colored underlining. I thought about matching my shoes to the underlining to compliment the demure look but uhh… you know that thought lasted about all of 2 seconds. Clearly my urge to add bold color and send mixed messages is never-ending.  I opted for a teal clutch, green and teal shoes and touches of coral in the accessories to pull my nice but slightly naughty look together.
