How to Style a Denim Dress for Fall

DRESS: (old) similar styles here here and here / SCARF: (seriously had this forever) cute styles here love this style also here and here / BOOTIES: (last season) almost identical also love these and these / HANDBAG: (also older style) similar here and here SUPER AFFORDABLE version here / LIPCOLOR: Nars Cruella MK Watch

I am jumping right into this one today because I absolutely LOVE this dress.  I got it this past spring when I worked at MK and we sold out of it pretty quickly (especially once it went on sale).  It is one of the most versatile dresses I own and everyone should have one of these cuties in their closet!  I wore it a ton this past summer with the sleeves rolled up and cute gladiator sandals.  For this shoot I opted to keep it fairly simple by adding just a touch of leopard.  Leopard after all equates to any and all things fall right?!   The scarf is H&M from like 6 years ago but I still love it.  I highly suggest adding a leopard scarf to your fall collection because they never actually go out of style.  

Instead of typing out additional ways to style this dress to make it fall appropriate, I opted to just show you!  And please don't mind the mirror selfies! I decided last minute to do this so rather than make it a huge production, I grabbed my mirror, moved it to the best lighting in the house and started snapping away :))


 TURTLENECK: mine is Old Navy from last year, similar option here / BOOTS: Similar Steve Madden here

OPTION 2)  Add your favorite VEST

VEST: old style, newer version here / BOOTIES: Louise et Cie / TURTLENECK: similar here
(Sonoma absolutely refused to move. She's lucky she's so cute!)

OPTION 3) Add a PLAID SHIRT with a Belt

PLAID SHIRT: old style, similar here and here / BELT: Target another option here

OPTION 4) add your favorite Long CARDIGAN

CARDIGAN: Exact here (color sold out) similar color option here / BOOTIES: Vince Camuto
(totally had to shift the mirror because I was chasing the sun setting, lol) 

I had a lot of fun making this post and need to do more like it.  It't fun taking one piece you love and styling it a bunch of ways.  I have a feeling it will be helpful to a lot of you!  Also a sidetone about this dress.  I did wear it to work back in VA.  It was still chilly and since the dress is a tad short I added thick tights and heeled bootie. I layer a blouse underneath and a chunky necklace.  My work environment was fairly casual so I could get away with it.  When I worked in an office setting I constantly wanted to buy things that I could wear to work and on the weekends.  

An update here in Broward County on Hurricane Matthew:  I would say overall we were very lucky. We had some intermittent strong winds and rain but nothing that wasn't manageable.  I am saying my prayers for those along the central and northern shores of Florida however because I have a feeling that that they will not be as lucky.  It is currently 8:00pm on Thursday night and the storm is quickly approaching them.  We have not yet lost power (thank you thank you thank you) and our road has not flooded at this time.  And THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who have reached out to check on us.  We greatly appreciate and love you all!   

Thanks for stopping by and be safe friends!

ps I also have a feeling that I might get some home decor/furnishing questions.  Comment below if you have any questions on where I bought certain things ;)
