The Dress

Chicwish kindly gifted me this gorgeous cream embroidered dress with tie sleeves that I was so excited to style this summer. As I began playing around with it in my wardrobe, I realized that this dress can actually be worn in EVERY season! One dress to wear in all four seasons. Talk about versatility & definitely getting your money’s worth. See how I’ve styled this classic dress uniquely for each season of the the year.


Spring

One Dress, Four Seasons

My classic trench coat is my go-to jacket to wear especially in the spring. It’s a great length, light-weight, & keeps me warm in the crisp spring air. For shoes, I went with a patent ballet flat. This pair is under $15 & is great to wear even on rainy days. What is spring without a few floral accessories? A pair of floral earrings & a floral print bag really brighten up this look. Lastly, a colorful pastel yellow pair of sunnies to welcome some warmer weather.

Summer

One Dress, Four Seasons

My designer dupe espadrilles are my favorite summer shoe, so of course I had to pair them with this dress. Warm tones have been my favorite to wear this summer like these orange cat eye sunglasses, this brown woven belt, & the floral scarf tied in a bow on my bag. To tie in with the bow on my bag & the tie sleeves, & paired this look with a simple pair of gold bow studs for an effortless look. What is summer without a great basket bag, am I right? It’s been a favorite of mine & you would not believe how affordable it is!

Fall

One Dress, Four Seasons

I wanted to play with a bit of layering for this fall look & decided to choose one of my favorite colors for fall to do so: camel. This camel turtleneck is so soft & is a great layering piece to add warmth to your look. Not to mention it matches my camel beret perfectly. I love the way this blush cardigan looks with the cream dress & the camel accents. It gives the whole look that cozy vibe. For earrings I went with these pearl earrings to tie in with the cream dress. Lastly, I paired these nude suede ballet flats & a dark toned bag for some contrast.

Winter

One Dress, Four Seasons

Yep, this dress even works in winter! I threw this oversized burgundy roll neck sweater over my lovely cream dress & paired it with a few other burgundy accessories. Berets really do add so much warmth in the fall & winter months which is why I have so many colors to wear almost everyday! I wanted to add my check coat to add a bit of structure to the look & tie in with my black box bag that’s one of my winter staples. If you’re worried about being cold in the winter in just a dress, remember you can always add boots, tights, or even fleece leggings underneath!

It’s The Holiday Season

November is here & holiday season is in full swing. This time of year brings holiday parties & events as well as lots time with family & friends. Being the planner at heart that I am, I’ve already started putting together outfits for occasions I’ll be attending over the next couple of months. Doing this really eases any stress about what to wear or wondering if I even have anything to wear. Also, if anything should come up out of the blue, I’ll already have cute & festive outfits at the ready.

Thanksgiving is a big event coming this month. I know sometimes it can be hard to know what to wear or what to bring to these gatherings. On the one hand, you want to look cute & put together, especially if you are seeing people you don’t get to see everyday, & on the other hand, you don’t want to look over-dressed or uncomfortable. Here’s what I’m going to wear & bring to Thanksgiving this year.

“But What Would I Wear?”

It seems as though everyone experiences similar sentiments about finding the right outfit as the Grinch sometimes. (see here) If you know me, I always tend to lean on the slightly over-dressed side, but this year I think I have found the perfect look that combines function & fashion.

At the end of summer, when I started to plan ahead for fall content, I knew my wardrobe was in desperate need of one item: a camel turtleneck. I searched everywhere to find the perfect quality piece at the right price. Finally, I found this gorgeous top at J. Crew. Unfortunately it was backordered for a while, but it’s finally here & is indeed just the thing my wardrobe needed.

My Look

This camel turtleneck is perfectly paired with this Chicwish floral skirt for a flattering & feminine silhouette. You guys know I love a good silhouette! The classic cut of this skirt as well as the metallic thread that runs throughout the fall toned florals, elevates the look of the whole outfit. Not only does this outfit look good, it is also cozy enough to curl up on the couch under a blanket to watch the parade or a football game, take a post-Thanksgiving meal nap, or to toss an apron overtop & bake a pie in the kitchen in.

You can really go so many different ways with accessories & layers with an outfit like this. For me, I always love wearing my trench coat on Thanksgiving. I don’t know why, but it’s a thing for me. Then I added some faux fur for warmth & extra style. To keep with the classic & comfortable vibes, I felt that sticking to a neutral pair of ballet flats was the way to go, but this look could also be worn with a pair of boots for added warmth.

Get Creative With Your Dish

I’ve been completely inspired by floral cakes as of late, so I thought why not use some creativity & bring something beautiful & tasty to Thanksgiving this year. Now you definitely don’t have to make a cake, but let me challenge you to get a bit creative this year. Put your own spin on a classic dish, or just go the extra mile to add a lovely visual to the thing you want to bring to your Thanksgiving feast. Put a little bit of you into your creation. Not only will others love it, but I guarantee you’ll enjoy preparing it.

While perusing through my favorite local antique store, I found this gorgeous scarf that quickly made a place in my wardrobe. I was immediately drawn to its lovely fall tones: the emerald green, the deep red, & the bright gold. Creating an outfit featuring this scarf was like stepping right into fall. I could imagine wearing this while the leaves are changing colors & starting to fall, the crisp air is surrounding me, while sipping on a pumpkin spice cappuccino.

This will only be my second year of truly embracing fall fashion. I love getting creative with the colors textures & layers that just scream fall. I tend to stick to the color palette of burgundy, camel, emerald, & navy, but also this year, I am planning on bringing some purple to the mix as well, more on that later. These colors & tones are ones I typically don’t wear except during this time of year, which is why fall fashion excites me so much! What a fun opportunity to play with new colors & new pairings each year!

This look, thanks to this scarf, displays several of my favorite fall tones. I would have never put all of these colors & accessories together if it weren’t for being so inspired by this scarf, but I love the way it turned out. Just can’t wait to style this scarf with more outfits this fall & continue mixing fall tones that I would have never paired together before. Each day brings a new spark of creativity when creating my OOTD.
