Outfit of the Week: Dreaming of a Tropical Va-cay

Autumn is in full swing here in Pittsburgh, so that means the weather usually consists of overcast mornings, grey afternoons, and rainy evenings. Although I’m initially smitten with fall weather, my admiration for changing leaves, crisp air, and mulled apple cider usually subsides after a few weeks. I inevitably start longing for warmer weather, sandy beaches, and an evening that doesn’t get dark until after 10 PM.

With these daydreams in mind, I decided to center my OOTW around one of my favorite ModCloth items, The Great Barrier Reef Skirt. This pencil skirt’s abstract pastel print is downright charming – I love the swirls of lilac, navy blue, olive green, heather grey, and pink, which come together in a chic, chaotic print that says to me, “spring fever!” To coordinate with the hues of pink in my skirt, I chose to accessorize with the adorable In the Bow Heels in Raspberry and the dainty Pretty Pretty Princess Headband.

With a warm breeze in mind, I tucked The Nep-Tunic‘s sleeveless silhouette into the high-waist of The Great Barrier Reef Skirt. I love the subtle details of Gentle Fawn’s Persian indigo tank, from the chain detail at the V-shaped cutaway to the satiny, warm charcoal bib.

Next, it was time to get serious and realize that Pittsburgh may unfortunately be a bit cold over the next few months. I immediately wanted to bundle up in the Eloise Coat! A classic navy blue coat is a must for outerwear this winter, and this sophisticated wool peacoat is sure to keep me both warm and stylish. I also threw on the A Leg Up Socks in Stone to keep my gams toasty and texturized!

At this point, my outfit just needed a little extra something. I immediately thought of the Semi-Precious Belt, a black stretchy belt I’ve been eyeing since it went on the site. I love the oversized buckle and the glistening gemstones. I also can’t deny my penchant for vintage-inspired anything, and the Wood You Cry For Me Necklace reminded me of a large pendant necklace my Mom gave to me as one of her high school keepsakes. Last, but certainly not least, I slung The Unbe-weave-able Grey Purse over my shoulder. The warm grey color of this cute woven bag is so versatile, I’d like to think it can go with just about anything!

What’s the verdict, ModReaders? Do you think these items work well together? What would you change?
