Sunday Styles no. 3

It's Sunday again and you know what this means! It's time for another installment of Sunday Styles! The great news is that autumn is finally in full swing. The heat wave is over and I'm lining up my sweaters and scarves, readying them for instant deployment at the drop of a degree.

In the meantime, this weather calls for transitional outfits that allow for layering and so I show you exhibit A. Today's outfit is basically the fashionable version of a 90 year old and a 10 year old running at each other at the speed of light and colliding to create a new star...no, it's not astronomy. It's this outfit I'm referring to.

Transitional seasons call for transitional threads!

I decided to go for something easy this week. (Dresses are easy, unbeknownst to anyone who doesn't wear dresses.) You only have to pull one thing on instead of figuring out whether your top & bottom can exist in harmony or not. This dress in particular is easy because it's not form fitting (read: COMFY) and also has the magical ability to hold things with pockets (read: CONVENIENT.) I'm fidgety with my hands, so pockets are perfect for me...as you can see, I have my hands in my pockets because I'm awkward and don't know where else to put them.

To make this dress fall-proof (hahaha...puns! Sorry! I can't help it.) just add some knee-high socks (for some reason, I equate these with a "granny" look.) Keeps your gams warm while also adding a slimming effect. If knee-highs are not your thing, then go for tights! Whichever you prefer. To add a bit of flair to the whole outfit, I threw on a pair of peep-toe, suede platform shoes. (I can't tell you why, but I'm really into this whole "peep-toe with tights & socks" thing that's happening right now.)

I haven't decided on which cardigan to wear yet, but I'll throw one of those on and, temperature-depending, I may need a scarf. Oh, look, I also decided to wear my hair down for once. This is what it looks like right now...still battling to grow it, but I figured it deserves to come out of hiding once in a while.

Ok, back to life!

Hope you all have a fantastic rest of the weekend & are enjoying the wonderful weather! xo!
