As you can imagine, Fall Dress-Ing focuses on dresses. Personally, I am such a summer person with my wardrobe, that I struggle during the colder months. I feel like I reach for jeans automatically before pushing myself out of my comfort zone. I love dresses April-September, and I want to love them year round. So for this section, I am pushing myself. And I am pushing you to get a little adventurous, experiment with your wardrobe, and put on a dress!
For the look below, I wanted to mix an ultra feminine dress with a more relaxed jacket to dress it down a bit. Also, this blog is real life. No makeup artist or hair team helping here. I literally got home from work after an insane day, showed our apartment tonight, threw on this dress, and put on some lipstick. Real world. We don't have a team of people helping us, or always have an hour to get ready. I am trying to show you that you can pull a look together in 5 minutes and feel great. Do I think I look perfect below? Hell no. But could I have rocked this look for a happy hour, night out my friends, or dinner date...Absolutely.
So here's to fall dressing, to looking great year round, and to being a girl on the go:
Dress: Chan Lu (old), Jean Jacket (old), Asos Shoes, Laura Mercier Lipstick in Audrey
Dress, similar here: Free People Lace Dress
Jacket, similar here: American Eagle Jean Jacket
Lastly and most importantly, there are a lot of people hurting tonight. The east coast is suffering like they have never felt before. Please, please, please, take a minute to check out the resources on how you can help. We are responsible for our friends and family there, and it only takes a little bit from each of us to help rebuild. Check out how you can help out those in need here: Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts
