Guest Post: Sara of Swing the Day Away

11/26/2013 05:20:00 pm

I'm taking a little break from blogging and asked the lovely Sara if she wanted to guest post - she's a favourite blogger of mine and I'm so glad she is on my blog today!

Hello Almost Stylish readers! I'm Sara, and I blog over at Swing The Day Away. There you will find posts about outfits, recipes, travels, and life in general. I live in New England, so I'm very excited to be guest blogging on an international blog! I took German in college and I loved the language because it's so different from English. Unfortunately, I never became really fluent in it. I've forgotten a lot of words, but I can usually figure out what someone is saying, especially if it's written out, and I can speak a little too still.

When Kati asked me to guest post, I thought about what I'd like to share with her readers. I decided I'd like to share one of my favorite dresses ever, and definitely one of my favorites for autumn. It's this burnt orange Dear Creatures dress that I got from Ruche a while back. I love it so much for many reasons, including the color, the shape, how comfortable it is, and how easy it is to layer with. Layering is essential in the fall and winter for me. If I could, I'd wear a blanket as a dress. Winter and I are not friends.
I've remixed this dress so many times because I love it so much, and it lends well to being remixed. It's great to wear over a collared shirt, under a cardigan, to dress up, and to dress down. It's one of those colors that can be worn with a lot of different colors to create a ton of interesting combinations. Here's some of the other ways I've styled this dress:
23rd Birthday Celebrations
I'm Bringing Autumn Back
Throughout The Seasons
When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth
The Biggest Pumpkin Ever
"Delicious Autumn! My Very Soul Is Wedded To It."
You may not have guessed, but one fact about me is that autumn is my favorite season. I love the fall foliage, the pumpkin and apple treats, going apple picking, celebrating Halloween, and the weather is always perfect. Plus I'm an October baby. :) I wear this dress the most in the fall, mostly because of the color. It's just so pumpkiny! Fall is when I'm most inspired and it's my favorite time of the year to put outfits together.
Dress: Dear Creatures//Sweater: H&M//Tights: Apt. 9//Shoes: Mudd//Belt: Forever 21
I also love to bake, and fall is a great time of the year to bake. Almost everything is spiced with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and other yummy spices. I usually like to bake cookies the most, but lately I've been wanting to bake more pies. For Thanksgiving, I've been designated the pumpkin pie maker, so I will be making my very first pumpkin pie ever. I'm pretty excited! I also plan to make my pumpkin bread that I love to bake every year in the fall.
Please visit my blog and check out all my other fall outfits and adventures! You can also watch the progression of me hating winter more and more as it gets colder and colder. I assure you, it will probably be entertaining. I also recently did a Harry Potter-themed series of outfits, so if you're a Potterhead like me, you'll definitely appreciate it! Thanks to Kati for allowing me to guest post here. I hope you all enjoyed my ramblings. Auf Wiedersehen! :)
