My Favorite Outfit: Sara of Swing the Day Away

Note from Sammi: Hello, lovely readers!  I am currently out of town with *very* limited internet access, so I've decided to start a little mini-series on the blog while I'm gone.  I've asked some of my favorite blogger ladies to contribute a guest post about their absolute favorite outfits from their own blogs!  It's kind of a Sophie's Choice situation (at least, I know it would be for me!), since these are some of the most stylish girls I know, but I'm so excited to see what they've chosen!  Today's guest blogger is the lovely Sara from Swing the Day Away, who always manages to look both impossibly adorable and totally polished.  I love this sweet girl's style, and I know you will, too!

Hello, Soubrette Brunette readers! I'm Sara and I blog over at Swing The Day Away. While Sammi is away, she asked me to fill in for her and write about my favorite outfit. Well, I have a lot of outfits from the 4 years I've been blogging and I'm terrible at making decisions and narrowing things down, so I'm here with 9 of my favorite outfits within 3 of my favorite fashion themes. That's right, I'm doubling up on the favorites, people. I'm breaking the rules!

The first of my favorite fashion themes is nautical. I live on the shoreline of New England, so I have grown up always being about 5-10 minutes away from the ocean. I love it that way, and I can't imagine ever living somewhere landlocked. I love everything about all the little seaside towns along the coast - the smell of the air, the little food shacks, the boardwalks, the knick knack stores...just the overall nautical flair. It's really grown to be a part of me, and I love incorporating it into my wardrobe.

 Next up is fall fashion. Like Sammi, I am an October baby, and I am very proud to be! Autumn is my favorite season and October is my favorite month. I promise that it's not just because it's my birthday month, though that has a small portion to do with it. I really can't describe my love for autumn. I think I'd marry it if that were a thing and didn't make me a crazy person. I love the colors and smell of the leaves, the crisp air, Halloween, apple and pumpkin picking, and apple and pumpkin baked goods. It's the best time to go to the orchards, which is my favorite place to go! Plus, it is seasonally acceptable to watch Hocus Pocus. Enough said. I will not watch that movie unless it's October, no matter how much I love it.

The last one I'm not sure would be called a theme, per se. It's basically just that I like to try to mix colors that aren't normally mixed. I know there's this whole thing about "clashing" colors and a whole method of how to use colors in the color wheel with primaries, secondaries, etc., but I don't follow it. I don't really believe in clashing, unless you literally threw on about 6 different patterns at once or something. I think that any colors can be worn together if you do it right. So I say down with the idea of clashing! Mix away, my friends.
