Fall is without a doubt the best month for fashion. One day it’s warm enough that you still get away with some of your summer wardrobe and then the next day it’s all about layers. When we decided to go to Binghamton a few weeks ago, we were confused as to what to pack. What kind of weather do you try to dress for in the season of unpredictability?
Let’s just say we may have overpacked a little. Just to be safe, of course.
We lucked out with beautiful weather all weekend, so we knew that we had to shoot a wrap dress story. We found the most adorable barn with a distressed multicolored wooden front. The blues and reds from the barn matched us perfectly, so we had to pull over and do a mini shoot while we were on our way to go apple picking.
We learned many things in our little weekend away to Binghamton. Firstly, never wear heels to go apple picking. Secondly, blueberry wine is amazing and we HIGHLY recommend (we have the five bottles to prove it). Don’t worry, we got you guys… here’s a link to our favorite winery in Binghamton. Last, but not least, if you want pancakes the size of your head, go to Apple Hills Farm and Market.
I decided to wear my black wrap dress with a small white floral pattern from Ruby and Jenna. I wanted to keep it simple and only accessorized with my gold Ray-Bans. I knew that I wanted a bootie that was a little taller than the standard ankle cut. I recently found the Sendra bootie from Vince Camuto and knew that they’d be perfect for this look (they’re still being sold at the store, we’re both obsessed with them). By the way, if you wanna play up a wrap dress, wear a lace bralette under for a layered look (I did this later in the day).
My red and black patterned wrap dress is from Free People. I fell in love with the funky design because it reminded me of something Stevie Nicks would wear in the seventies. I wore my tortoise Gucci sunglasses and layered chokers. The top brass choker is the ‘Silk City Choker’ and it’s from Free People ($28). My bottom choker is actually the chain from an old Urban Outfitters bag that I wrapped around my neck twice (things you do when you’re creative and broke). My shoes are the ‘Angie Tortoise Block Mule’ from 4th & reckless (so affordable, 15 euro which is a little over $16). I loved how the tortoise in my shoes brought out the tortoise in my sunglasses. Overall, I think Stevie Nicks would be happy with this look… and that’s all that really matters.
