how we wore it || fall transition

today i am participating in my first ever "how we wore it" series hosted by brooke.  i am in no way a fashion blogger and this was quite comical to attempt with my children running in and out of every frame, but it was fun to do something different and out of my comfort zone.

basically how it works is brooke chooses an inspiration outfit from various fashion bloggers and those participating put their own spin on the outfit.  i love seeing how different people pull from colors, style, texture, patterns, etc. to create their own look.

today's outfit inspiration was Emily via Life with Emily

i loved how she paired a bright top with simple neutral accessories.  it looks so effortless, yet put together.  as soon as i saw this picture i knew that i was going to wear my top in a similar shade.  i decided to pair it with a midi skirt rather than jeans because although fall is technically here, it is still quite hot around these parts and a skirt is much cooler.  i followed emily's suit and added neutral shoes and a purse and then finished off with a long, gold necklace. 

what i learned from doing this fashion collab is that i'm an awkward human and need to work on my posing haha i give major props to fashion bloggers because it is not easy.

check out how these cute ladies styled the look
