What I Wore: The Quintessential Fall Dress

IMG_3328

what I wore: dress vintage st simon via grey dog, sunnies – potter’s house, socks/earrings/platforms – forever21
I got this dress last winter at Grey Dog. I’m not sure I even wore it last year, it screams Autumn which makes me feel like I should wear it in the fall or not at all. Anyway, if one can manage to fit it into the rotation, it’s so very cute and fun and quintessentially fall.

What I Wore: Socks with Sandals

(what i wore: sweater dress – bcbg from daisy exchange, socks – forever21, heels – nine west, jacket – tj maxx, necklace – dillards)
How do you feel about the socks with sandals trend? I’ve discussed it before and while I don’t think I’m ready to try anything wild (at least at work) I’m really into it as a means of transitional dressing. I’ve always had trouble transitioning to cold weather. Fall is definitely here and you know what that means…
WINTER IS COMING…(off subject Game of Thrones reference)

Socks with Sandals?

The age-old question, “can I wear tights with open-toed shoes?” has taken on new meaning for me lately. I am ever-more tempted to wear socks with my blatantly strappy sandals. I actually think it looks really cool. Why should all those perfectly fun cutout platforms be hidden away during cold weather? I do realize that one has to be careful with outfit decisions, as this trend can easily go awry. But I think I’m going to try it! What about you?
