Have you seen Mocloth’s latest stylebook? It is so darn cute! Every time I look through it, I get more and more excited for fall. This golden Gourd Garden Dress is by far my favorite item from the stylebook.

The temperatures around here are still on the warm side, so I was able to wear the dress without tights, and add some slingback wedges. Won’t it be great with colored tights and boots as well?


Outfit Details:
Gourd Garden Dress: c/o Modcloth
Belt: Thrifted Vintage
Wedges: Thrfited
Renegade Cluster Bracelet: c/o Stella & Dot

What is your favorite item from the stylebook?

  4. Hey Jen! Love the dress but I think it’d be too short for me. Do Modcloth’s dresses/skirts typically run on the shorter side?

  5. Love how retro your style is!

  6. i loveeeee that dress. the color and the lace detailing are both perf!!! eeeki cant even go on the modcloth site bc i want everything ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. The collar of the dress is so cute!

  8. *sigh* another lovely dress from ModCloth that I can’t buy because their dresses are always too short to wear to work – I wish they made some a little longer. However, this one is beyond fabulous with the fall color … I wonder if there’s any way I could make it longer …

  9. every time I see those wedges, they remind me of when we first met! memories…..

  10. I agree about the shortness. Your legs are great, Jen, but I will never order from mod cloth because I don’t think I could wear the dresses to work. With tights, maybe. I liked your idea once though of wearing a lace-trimmed slip underneath. I bought one recently (at the art fest actually!) that I’m going to try out with some shorter dresses.

  11. the golden color is the die for and it totally gets me so excited for the foliage !!

  12. Yes, some of the dresses from modcloth are short, but I am also super tall. I am 5’9″. For everyday I think this dress is great. Modcloth has a terrific Longer Length section where you can find all dresses with a longer hemline. Be sure to check them out!

  13. You look so adorable in that yellow dress! I’d love to have one like it. I really enjoy the purple shoes you paired with that dress. The colors contrast really nicely.

  14. B-E-A-U-TIFUL! Love this, can imagine it with maroon/wine coloured tights! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Ps loved the video of rowan yesterday, really made me LOL!

  15. te dress is so cute!

  16. love this dress!


  17. Thanks for the feedback about the length. I didn’t realize there was a longer length section!

  18. Yellow is my absolute favorite color for Autumn! This dress is so gorgeous, the collar is just darling! You look beautiful!

    It’s still so hot up here in your native Canada too, this Indian Summer is never ending it seems.

    Hope you and the little family have a great week!

  24. What a lovely dress! Mustard is perfect for autumn. I bought already trousers and a cardigan in this great color and love it so much. ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Curious to see this one with tights!

  34. First, this dress looks fantastic on you, great color and it shows off your long legs! Second, you weren’t kidding the style book is really good, love all of the color, the yellow swing coat and green cape may be my favorite pieces but there is so much to pick from!

  35. this might be my perfect dress! (love your bracelet, too! ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

  36. This outfit is PER-FECT !!! Too bad ModCloth doesn’t ship to France, I’d have ordered this dress in a minute! It WILL look gorgeous with tights and boots this winter!

  39. Oh the colour of this dress is so beautiful, and I love the crochet collar too! Perfect for fall, can’t wait to see how you style it for colder weather – I always tend to stay away from dresses when it’s cold out for some reason, so I’m sure it’ll be great inspiration!
