The final day of Austin Fashion Week 2016 brought with it my favorite outfit and my favorite designer on the runway. Each look of mine for the three nights of the event was inspired by one piece that I knew I wanted to build an outfit around — the colorful shorts on Thursday, the blue suede sandals on Friday, and for the final evening I knew I wanted to wear the gold studded wingtip oxfords that Blake had given me as a birthday gift only days before.
As such, my initial outfit idea was out the window which left me heading out early Saturday morning in search of the perfect dress that would pair with my new shoes. I went straight to Anthropologie, which is a great dress destination and I had no doubt I’d find something there. I’d taken the oxfords with me and tried them on with nearly every dress in the store before picking this gorgeous blush dropwaist dress — which is no surprise because I fell in love with it after seeing it online months ago and no other dress came close to feeling as perfect as this one.
The blush color is so soft and the fabric is a heavy linen cotton blend with a sheen to it that makes the light bounce off beautifully; the ruffled hem makes it perfect for twirling! As I made my way to the register I couldn’t help but pick out this cuff and necklace to accessorize the outfit, and I added my rose gold gem drop earrings and pink glitter Kate Spade wallet to complete the blush pink look. Like I mentioned above, this was my favorite outfit that I put together for the runway shows. It was so easy and comfortable to wear and yet I still felt like a princess in it!
I hope you enjoyed reading all about AFW 2016!
