As you’ve seen, a dress and ankle boots is my go-to fall outfit as long as the weather allows. Unfortunately, I think we’re nearing the end of bare leg season but I managed one last time! I wore this outfit to a fun event last week where I got to preview BHLDN’s Spring ’15 collection. It was, as you can imagine, absolutely stunning — the gowns and jewels were something out of a fairytale. Plus, the Drybar was there to amp up my curls and Alyssa taught everyone how to make these beautiful flower crowns. Afterwards, the boyfriend and I went to The Strand for date night and had just enough time to zip up to the roof and check out the amazing views before heading home.
Before fall officially set in a couple of weeks ago, I wore this slip dress out on date night. When I first got it, I was worried that the lace trim would make it look like a nightgown rather than a dress meant to be worn in public. Instead, with the right layers and accessories, it has that effortless, minimalist appeal. An oversized plaid scarf was enough that night — this one is big enough that I can wear it as a wrap like here. Now that it’s cooler I’ll try my slip dress paired with something along the lines of a boyfriend cardigan or leather jacket.
Two really exciting things happened last Saturday. One was attending College Fashion Week as a VIP with Boohoo. The event kicked off with basically a glam squad: hair styling by TRESemmé, foundation matching from bareMinerals and manicures by cityMANI, all before the show. I chose this dress for the cool cutout shoulders and was so glad I had the cozy vest for later that night when we went out with friends. The other exciting thing is… we got a kitten! Meet Frank Sinatra — you’ll be seeing more of him here!
