I absolutely love this swing dress. My obsession over cowled shaped necklines has gotten a little out of control. I think this particular detail is the epitome of what winter fashion is. It’s like a dress and scarf in one, so convenient right? The dark maroon detailing on the bottom and inside the pockets keeps things a little more interesting and feminine. You all should know by now that I am absolutely obsessed with shift shaped dresses. Some of you may think that I look like a tent but totally disagree. No bonfires or smores over here, girlfriend! Just a fun, statement, flowy dress that never goes out of style. Shift dresses are the easiest and most fashionable pieces that you will own in your closet. Heck! I haven’t worn a slim bodycon dress in years. I have to admit that this dress is oh so beautiful to look at but not so comfortable to wear. You can always count on me to be honest on here. (Ew, who likes liars.) And if I’m being honest, the fact that there’s wool in it, I couldn’t help but cringe inside a little. I dress up day in and day out but if I’m not 100% comfortable I WILL NOT WEAR IT. I might actually be allergic to wool. Is that a thing? Can people be allergic to wool? So it broke my itty bitty heart to return this beautiful thing back to Anthropologie but if I’m going to pay that kind of money, I might as well enjoy wearing it and be comfy, right? Just wanted warn any of you that were thinking about buying it. If wool doesn’t bother you, I’m jealous. Truly jealous. I’ve learned my lesson. Wool, stay far far far away from me.
Forget the little black dress. Let’s switch things up just a little bit. This shift silhouette is all the rage right now. I have a bunch in my closet for those days when I don’t feel like putting in much effort and when I want my outfit to do all the talking. The boiled wool material makes the outfit a little more cozier and winter appropriate. This little ensemble is acceptable for work functions, girls night, and even date night. I went for a more “everyday” look (everyday for me) by pairing it with a striped turtleneck and statement fox printed tights. Don’t be the girl in the little back dress. Be the one that takes it to a different level with a pretty cobalt blue/green dress. It’s okay to be the oddball sometimes. I prefer it actually. ODDBALLS UNITE!
Some days more than others I have this sudden urge to dress like a rainbow. Have you noticed that I haven’t worn an all black outfit in forever? I mean that’s so 2013. Just kidding. But really, I wore nothing but black last year. I was honestly going through a lot, more than a lot, and wearing all black seemed to be easier. I felt depressed so why not be stereotypical and where all black? I’ve done a slight 180 since last year. I love to dress and live life in color. I never want that to change. A rainbow signifies a promise, happiness, and sunshine. Not to be cheesy but I’ve made it through the eye of the storm. I’m ready for the rainbow now. With that said not every day can be unicorns and smiley faces. I will always have those dark cloudy days for as long as I live but it’s about taking that sadness and creating something beautiful out of it. I want to be remembered as sunshine… so I’m gonna dress like it.
I hope everyone has a lovely Thanksgiving. Savor the food but also the moments with your loved ones. Take as many pictures as you can and say your “I love you’s.”
Overalls have always been my favorite item of clothing but good ones can be hard to find. Figuring out a good outfit can be harder. I think the easiest way to rock some overalls this fall is a sweater (or cropped sweater like mine) and combat boots. Don’t forget to accessorize. To some of you, overalls might be a bold choice, but I swear they are so fun. If you’re the type that is always worried about how other people see you, thats not the way to live sweetheart. It’s all about how YOU see you and how YOU feel. You cannot hold yourself back from wearing an amazing outfit just because you think others will judge you. I made that decision a long time ago and I’ve never looked back. When you think about it, life is too short to wear a t-shirt and jeans. Have some fun with your outfits. People will appreciate that you let your personality shine through. Trust me.
I just realized I’m wearing a nude lip. Oh my gosh. That never happens. You guys know I’m stuck on the wine colored lipstick at the moment. It’s weird seeing me in a normal lip color. BEFORE YOU GO, check out a more girly take on this cropped sweater that I styled –> here.
Are you looking for the perfect dress? You can stop searching my lady because it’s right here. You’re welcome. I think everyone and their mother owns this Anthropologie dress. I feel like I see it everywhere. My favorite fashion bloggers rock this dress all the time. It’s even more beautiful in person, trust me. It’s truly one of those dresses that you can wear all year long. I’m constantly searching for new ways to wear it because I wear it so often. Adding this mustard yellow bomber and belt made this baby doll dress a little more fall appropriate and a little more fun. This dress caught my eye because it reminds me of my Spanish heritage. I feel like I can wear this dancing to spanish music while cooking green chili enchiladas in the kitchen with my mama. Muy Bonita!
