Hey y’all! It’s been way too long since I’ve taken “real” outfit photos (and my iPhone remote broke, so that’s made even quick image grabs more complicated) and Ashley’s Autumn Trends Blog Event seemed the perfect excuse to get back in the habit! 

It is such a gorgeous day, so we spent a few extra minutes pretending to have a picnic just because we could. πŸ˜‰ 
Two weekends ago, super sweet longtime readers of Fresh Modesty stopped by on their way home from vacation to meet my family and me. The internet is such a wonderful place and has facilitated opportunities to connect with such incredible people! And… oh my goodness, y’all, Mrs. M made me this basket. 
She literally weaved me a basket.
How cool. is. that. 

According to ELLE magazine, “Bling is back! After seasons of oversized jewelry with minimal design, we’ve made a return to very feminine, sparkly jewelry…”

So, I opted to wear a simple gold blingy costume bracelet from Charming Charlie’s to compliment the  Old Navy gold-toed flats.

As much fun as chunky sweaters, blanket scarves, and wool are, it is just not cool enough to wear those looks here in Tennessee yet. So today for a casual Saturday visiting with out-of-state family, I’m wearing super comfy Ann Taylor corduroys (thankfully nice enough for those) in what I guess is called “Marsala” this autumn. πŸ˜‰ 

My tunic I got on ThredUP (click here for $20 off your first order) and it’s been a super versatile, easy tunic that was perfect for summer and is now taking me into fall. The brand is Lush. 

Apparently 1970’s and flared jeans are finally back in style (that’s my favorite fashion decade!) just as I was finally adopting skinny jeans into my wardrobe. I will have to search a bit to find flares in the back of the closet. πŸ˜› 
Ulta Beauty had an online-only sale on the carcinogen-free Butter LONDON nail polishes a fortnight back so I picked up this gorgeous shade called “Queen Vic” and didn’t realize it would match these pants so well. ha!

I’ll see y’all again soon– be sure to click over to Bramblewood Fashion to see Ashley’s outfit and get links to others’! Blessings!

  1. Love the outfit! I am working on adding more tunics to my wardrobe and have had a hard time finding long enough ones! And that picnic basket is awesome!

  2. Wow, she wove you that basket?? It looks so cool!!! Also, I love the tunic paired with those skinny jeans. Super adorable!!!
    Olivia, I want to thank you for your thought-provoking posts about ethics a few weeks back–they came at the same time as another blogger I follow posted about consumerism and ethical fashion, so I had a lot of good stuff to think on. As a result, a couple friends of mine and I are taking Leah Darrow's "Closet Challenge" this month, where we go the entire month with 7 clothing items (PJs, underwear, and workout clothes are not included), to focus on simplicity and intentionality. It's been a really cool experience!

  3. Wow! Mrs. M is one talented young lady! Not only does she weave beautiful baskets, but she's one heck of a mother-in-law!

  4. Wow, what a surprise! Thank you so much Olivia for featuring the basket on your blog it looks so much nicer since you are holding it. You look so beautiful, what a cute tunic love the corduroys and final touch gold toed flats tie it all together perfectly. You always look so feminine.
    Blessings, Mrs. M

  5. I love your fashion sense, Olivia! I've shown your blog to my mom and now sometimes when I'm dressed up she'll say, "That looks like that girl's outfits" (she never remembers your name!) You really give me cute, modest ideas! Thanks so much for your encouragement. Your love for Christ really comes through!


  6. Love the colour of the pants and nail polish! And wow, this is my favourite of your hair "looks" ever! You look amazing.

  7. Hi Olivia just wondering where you found out that butter London nail polishes are carcinogen free? I don't paint my nails anymore because of the yucky stuff in nail polishes these days. Couldn't find it anywhere on butter london's page or on ulta beauty saying anything about them being carcinogen free. If they are I might order some. Thanks, Veronica
