As fall quickly approaches and everything becomes pumpkin spice, I thought it would be fitting to temporarily stray from my typical black and go with something more representative of autumn. This rust orange hue is the perfect transitional dress for fall. The midi length is great to keep the legs warm on cooler days and nights and if you want to shorten it, you can also just pull the bodycon dress up and have it drape in the waist area to make it more of a mini dress (like I did on some of these photos).

When I wear a brighter color like orange, I like to add a complementary color like white or denim (blue) to really bring out the outfit. For this look I wore my oversized white blazer (which I also wore here) and my new favorite white pumps from Zara. Not only does the white stand out, but the orange tones do as well.

What are some of your favorite fall colors to wear?

// Key Pieces (scroll below for full outfit details) //
Something Old | Valentino bag and White Blazer
Something New | Midi Dress and White Pumps
Style Tip | Use complementary colors to make an outfit pop (Orange → Blue, Yellow → Purple, Green → Red).

Omg, that dress looks amazing on you! But, I’m the most obsessed with your shoes in this post. When I first saw them on IG I was thinking to myself, “NEEEED!” Can’t believe they’re from Zara! Block heels are the best because they’re comfortable and give a decent amount of height. I need to go look for them and try them on next time I visit a store 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Christine! Wishing you a lovely week ahead. xo, sharon


dailykongfidence September 12, 2016 - 12:56 pm

Hi Sharon! Thank you so much. I am typically not a fan of the midi length because I am so short, but I like how I can pull this up to make it shorter and it doesn’t look weird and I have the option to make it long as well. Yes, these are my new favs from Zara! Very Celine and Acne like but at a fraction of the cost! You must get them! Have a great week yourself babe!

Holly September 12, 2016 - 12:40 pm

Obsessed with this look it’s so chic and effortless! I’m new to blogging and it’d mean a lot if you could check out my blog and let me know what you think! Much love Holly xo


dailykongfidence September 12, 2016 - 12:57 pm

Thank you Holly! Of course, I would be happy to! =)

Thomas Falkenstedt September 12, 2016 - 1:34 pm

See, I’m kinda weird. I’m a huge fan of colors, but I also love dressing down a bit in earthy tones during autumn. It’s so clean and cosy. 🙂
But I LOVE the color on you!

dailykongfidence September 13, 2016 - 8:33 am

Thanks Thomas! I am quite the opposite, I don’t do color, but once in a while I will wear something with color then wonder why I don’t wear color more often. =)

Bernice September 12, 2016 - 2:04 pm

Love the outfit babe! I love how you offset the warm tone with white 🙂


dailykongfidence September 13, 2016 - 8:33 am

Thanks Bernice! I like how the white makes the orange pop even more. It’s nice to use complementary colors to bring out each other right?

Raysa Garcia September 12, 2016 - 3:21 pm
