I'm coming at ya with a neutral and universally flattering look. To be honest, I wore this outfit back in August,  but it definitely still holds up in early October — weather pending! Today, I'd pair it with brown (or black) lace-up combat boots and a leather crossbody.

My sister shot all of these photos during a summer day of adventuring with our dad. We drove to Freeport, IL and explored the small towns and rural roads along the way. Part of our mission was to complete The Goodwill IG Challenge

The day before, I had gone to Goodwill with my mom and picked up a few random objects — Part I of the challenge complete! Part II? Execute a photo shoot incorporating those objects. This is what we came up with:

From Goodwill, I ended up buying two teacups, a framed illustration of a flower, a green vase, and a picnic basket. It was my dad's idea to hang the picture on the tree, which turned out to be my favorite part of our photos!

A khaki, button-down shirtdress like this one is so versatile. The beige color is seasonless and it can even be turned into a top (worn partly unbuttoned from the bottom with pants) or a jacket (worn all the way unbuttoned).
