Remix: Shabby Apple Sheep Meadow Dress

A few weeks ago I was searching through my closet on a Sunday morning trying to decide what to wear.  I saw this dress peeking out at me and looked at it wondering how I could make it a little more appropriate for fall.  I pulled it out, tried it on and started to look through my cardigan shelves to see which color jumped out at me.  When my eyes met with this champagne/pale purplish colored cardi I knew that was it.  I knew exactly which shoes to pair with it too.  And just like that, a new outfit was made from what I found in my closet!  If only it always came to me this easy...


Sheep Meadow Dress-Shabby Apple/ Bow Cardigan-Loft/ Mixed Media Heels-Anthropologie/ Necklace-Fossil/ Crackled Mosaic Bracelet-Anthropologie/ Bangles-Gap Outlet/ Earrings-Pree Brulee/ Flower Bud Ring-J Crew.

I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy today for WIWW!  Check it out...there's tons of fab outfit ideas to see!

Happy Wednesday!

PS--The second this gorgeous navy trench hit sale this week at Anthro I realized I legitimately forgot to include in on my October wish list...consider it inserted.


 I have been waiting for this gorgeous coat to go on sale ever since it came out and it finally came down in price on Monday.  I was so happy to score one in my size through CS since it said it was all sold out online, and it should be arriving today!  Perfect timing...it's raining out this morning, again! This is one of those items I know I'd regret if I passed up.  The navy is now all sold out online but the beige is still fully stocked.  Even if you were hoping for the navy, I would bet you'd be able to call CS and have them locate one for you.  I've learned with their new system that even if an item says its sold out online, CS will tell you over the phone it's still possible to order it.  I am not a fan of the new system, but at least when you see "SOLD OUT" you can now know it's usually just a fib.

    1. Oh man!! I have had that happen tp me a few times...there's always eBay I suppose, although I haven't seen too many Shabby Apple items on there. Perhaps another place will sell a similar dress..Modcloth and Downeast are places I find that do this quite often!

  4. Pretty dress! Always looking so fab! In case you guys are looking to do something this weekend, it's quite a drive from your place but in Lynd's Fruit Farm in Pataskala, you can pick your fuji apple this weekend. It is a huge place, they also have pumpkins, a tent that you can pick all kinds of good stuff, lots of fun things for the kids and next week in Circleville (17th-20th) It's Circleville Pumpkin Show. Check out their websites:

  8. Love the dress and color combo. I swear that you look good in everything. I think the crest cut wedge shoes would also work with this outfit as they are similiar in color to your cardi. Very cute.

    1. Oh my goodness, you are too kind! I totally agree...the Crest Cut wedges would be perfect with this for winter! Maybe with some contrasting thick patterend grey tights...hmmm...

  10. I also ordered the navy trench. Fingers crossed it works for me (never got a chance to try it on in-store). I've been looking for a trench coat for this fall/winter. So glad this one finally made it to sale!

    Love the dress/cardigan combo:)
