Outfit of the Week: Mums the Word

by Jesse L. Brooks


We have officially entered that time of year where choosing what to wear can become an added stress to your day. Here in Kentucky, it can easily be 60 degrees one day and snowing the next. That is why for this week's look we went for an ensemble that works in both warm and cool temperatures. Starting out with a beautiful floral number by Oscar de la Renta. This adorable little dress is decorated in a beautiful chrysanthemum floral print featuring a mini length silhouette, collared neckline, side pockets, statement buttons, and a bubble hem skirt. With a dress of this length, this time of year calls for a fabulous pair of boots. Crafted from smooth leather, these over-the-knee 'Barbara' boots by Amina Muaddi have a slouchy silhouette that is offset with a sleek pointed toe and stiletto heel. Pulling out those stunning pops of green on our lovely dress, we opted for a colorful piece of arm candy. Gucci's Padlock shoulder bag offers a fun quirkiness with its bamboo handle and structured in a chic eye-catching shape. For a hint of sparkle, it's all about the ears. These jewel-cluster drop earrings from Erdem feature burgundy, green and silver faceted crystal held in classic claw settings. The finishing touch is a warm burgundy lip that perfectly compliments the base color of our flowery frock. This Gucci Rogue lipstick has a bright and rich color with a smooth, soft, and velvety feel. Whether it's sunny and warm, or brisk and chilly, in this outfit "Mums The Word" when it comes to finding an outfit that works for both.
