A FALL DRESS DREAM COME TRUE

dsc_0196editeddsc_0194editeddsc_0208editeddsc_0236editeddsc_0255editedDetails: Clad & Cloth’s Holland Tunic, here |

Considering we had our first frost, I would say that fall is officially here to stay. Once the cold weather sets in, I always resort to wearing my favorite denim pants or black leggings, but this season I’ve been stocking up on equally as cozy dresses. This Clad & Cloth navy/red check patterned tunic is a new favorite of mine and I’m sure I don’t even have to explain why. The top half resembles a cropped navy sweater and the bottom is light, airy and a classic. The model on the website is shown styling distressed denim, but since I’m on the shorter side I wasn’t able to pull that look off. I also like that this dress is casual enough to wear with comfy booties, unlike many dresses where heels are required. I think I found a dress that I can actually live in this fall.

CHUNKY KNIT WEATHER

Every morning this week I’ve woken up to 40-degree weather. Brrr! When I said I want the fall weather I didn’t mean that fall weather. However, after a weekend filled with rain and long lounge sessions, it feels good to wake up to blue crisp skies, hold the crisp. As you know, my fall wardrobe is in limbo right now because much of my clothing is back in New Jersey. Although I’ve slowly been picking up new pieces, and this only means that I’ll have to purge some of my older clothing. It really is time for me to let go of my (past) clothing. And speaking of new, yes, you guessed it! This chunky khaki knit is brand spankin’ new, and if you see me on the weekend there’s a 95-percent chance I’m wearing it all.weekend.long. I’ve been resorting to simple looks lately and I’m starting to realize that less is actually more. This also applies to my ever-growing closet. I’ve been going through some of my clothing lately and am realizing that with many pieces, the quality is lacking and there are way too many one-hit wonders. That is, clothing I wear once and abandon because it’s a fleeting trend that doesn’t last more than a month. Lately, I’ve been styling simple staples and not only have I received various compliments, but I feel and look more sophisticated and mature. I’m 27 years old now. I have to start acting like it (only when I feel like it). In all seriousness, a closet purge is in order for me and if I can give you any advice on how not to let your overwhelming closet filled with one-hit wonders get the best of you, it’s to invest in staples and only staples. You know, those timeless pieces that add sophistication and class to your wardrobe.

THE UNLIKELY DUO

Sweater weather is here and I’ve been going out of my mind because my fall clothes are all at “home” in New Jersey. I wasn’t prepared for the fall weather to happen so fast; it went from hot to cold like that! I guess I’ll have to go shopping until I can make it home to get my clothes ;). In the meantime, I did add a new addition to my wardrobe with this off-the-shoulder wide turtleneck knit sweater. I’ve been waiting  to wear it and was finally able to style it this weekend. It’s SO cozy AND it includes two of my favorite clothing features: bare shoulders and a turtleneck. It’s a sweater of unity, bringing the summer and fall seasons together to make a sexy yet cozy knit. And not only did I discover a new sweater style, BUT I found a fresh new  clothing site. That’s right, another shopping site to peruse and another virtual shopping cart to fill. Dress Lily offers a wide variety of clothing from swimwear to formal dresses and everything in between, all at a reasonable price. The quality is exceptional and there are so many options in each clothing category that you’ll have to continue to edit your shopping cart. You’ll also notice that I found my booties for the season and these adorable wedges are from DSW the designer is not one I’ve heard of before, Audrey Brooke. However, they’re comfortable and give me the height I need to make me eye level with my peers LOL. Even though I’m currently lacking in fall clothing I can assure you I’ll have some more new styles to share in the upcoming weeks! Hello, shopping spree!
