Today I'm so excited to announce that LuLu*s and I have teamed up for the LuLu*s Rustic Fall collaboration! I've been a big fan of LuLu*s for years and years now, in fact, they were one of the first shops I partnered with way back when I started style blogging, and they've always been big supporters of my blog. So since my favorite season is on its way, we thought it would be fun to partner up once again and show off how to wear six fall pieces from LuLu*s in five different styles, thus the Rustic Fall collab was born! I've been having so much fun styling up these darling pieces, and hope you adore all six styles as much as I do with. Without further adieu, here's the first look --

For this look, I paired their Lucy Love Almost Famous hat with their Be My Beau-Hemian dress and Bamboo Battle 23 booties! To be quite honest, everything about this look just felt like me, from the oxblood hat, to the flowy, bohemian style dress and lace-up boots, this style showed off my true spirit (as a sweet friend said after she saw the photo below). Not to mentioned, when we shot these photos it was a perfectly cool evening that just signaled that fall is on its way! I also love this country road near our home, and how it added an extra special touch to the rustic fall vibes we were going for.

Anyways, this past weekend Scott and I took a trip up to Flagstaff, Arizona, to spend some time with my family in the woods. The weather up there was glorious - 40's in the evening, 80's during the day. We've been going up there for Labor Day weekend for years now, and every time I come home from this trip I feel refreshed and even more excited for the new season ahead. Each evening I had to break out my sweaters, opt for hot coffee and could even see my breathe! It was wonderful to get away from the city and into the woods for a few days, and i'm already looking forward to heading back up there in the months to come to see the fall colors and take in the chilly weather. Flagstaff is seriously such a beautiful place!

I hope you loved the first look of the Tea Talk x LuLu*s Rustic Fall collab as much as I do! I'll be back soon with look number two and some more fall vibes for ya (because it's now September and I can't get enough)! Scott and I are spending the afternoon catching up on work and homework, and tonight we need to go grocery shopping and run a few errands. I hope everyone has a great short week!

  1. What a beautiful collab, Chelsea! Love that darling dress on you + the way you've styled it! Might have to nab it - so perf for fall!! xoxo

  2. I love this outfit Chelsea! I've been eyeing those boots for awhile now and still haven't bought them. I have a few pairs of black boots but I feel like one can never have too many! Are they at least comfy? If so, I might just have to get them!

  3. LOVE the colors. Love the bohemian feel of this. Love the little detail on the boots. I feel ya on the Flagstaff visit- I just spent time in Utah and Idaho, and waking up to crisp, cool mountain air, and bundling up at night... it just can't be beat.
