// One Dress / Five Ways - FIVE

The fifth and final installation of the LCH x LuLu*s LBD challenge! I honestly wasn't sure that I was going to like this pairing, because it's a bit hard for me to imagine how garments will lay on my oddly-proportioned self. BUT with that being said, this ended up being a top contender. I don't wear a lot of knit sweaters or oversized items, but I do love pairing black and brown. This outfit ended up being a great recipe for all of those things. I wore this out and about yesterday (I got dressed twice this week!) to pick up the junk we ripped out of the new house and to haul it off. Yes, I was carting rolls of carpet and flooring in this... a bit odd but you do what you gotta do. 

This little area/backdrop is one of the sheds in our new backyard. Can I admit something that will make me sound a bit foolish? When we first looked at the house I immediately got excited about the 2 rustic sheds in the back because they'd make great outfit photo backdrops... ha. Yeahhh. Don't judge me. Rustic is the perfect way to describe our new surroundings, that's for sure.

I've been wearing my Tumbleweeds sunglasses non-stop these past few weeks. They're the perfect shade of dark to keep my eyes comfortable during the day. They're having an Instagram flash sale on Monday, too! Maybe I can get my hands on one of those beautiful rounded pairs. Swoon! You can't see it all that well in the photos (whoops!) but I'm also wearing a little instagram brooch. Mustard hints for winter, a favorite!

This weekend we're headed back up to our house in Nashville to try and sort through what's left. A lot of stuff will get tossed, donated, and possibly sold off. We're selling off our huge sectional and handmade window-coffee table on Craigslist, so if you're on the hunt, let me know! We've tossed around the idea of having a garage sale either the first or second weekend of February (probably the 2nd?) but if that pans out I'll gladly share the info here. We won't be living there anymore so sharing the address will be less sketchy haha

  8. Oh my goodness! I love this outfit! That cardigan + scarf + dress look so good together! <3

    Aw! I'm kinda sad that you're selling your handmade coffee table! I remember when you made that thing and it's so pretty, but I'm sure your new house will be gorgeous (and I'm a little jealous of you having such great outfit photo backdrops in your back yard! I want some!!)

  9. You're gorgeous. That scarf!

    You always complain about your hair, but in the photos it always looks fabulous! Have a nice trip to Nashville!

  13. I think this is my favorite styling of this dress! Totally something I would wear. I love the mustard color with it. I love the shed background! That's a pretty huge shed too...which makes me pretty jealous. My dad used to have a huge shed/shop and he loooooooved it. He used to work on all kinds of stuff out there.
