Concrete Catwalk // Laid Back

August 16, 2011
this is one of those laid back dresses
that i feel like i could wear everyday if it were socially acceptable.
ok, i’ll admit: i wore it approximately 4 times last week.
but a sweet silk frock with stripes and a billowy silhouette?
can you blame me?
p.s. i’m totally excited that flat ankle boots are going to be big for fall.
i snagged a few pairs that i love (on sale!) at the end of last winter
and already feel like i’ve got a nice little selection going. :)
what are you excited to wear for fall???
dress – j. crew (similar here & here)
necklace – was nana’s (similar)
boots – asos (similar)
cocktail ring – j. crew (similar)
clutch – macy’s (similar, only $44!)

    I snagged some fantastic J. Crew mustard yellow cords at the thrift store a few weeks ago and I can’t wait to wear them this fall. I am also so excited to wear my Frye Campus boots again!

    Love how you paired the breezy dress with the tougher boots.

    There is no shame in wearing the same dress over and over – especially one as comfortable looking as this!!

    Hooray for ankle boots! Hooray that it’s ‘almost’ cool enough to wear them already! Adore the dress, and the arm candy is divine.
