Stripes + Fit & Flare

Dress: GAP (On Sale Now!), Booties: Loft (Under $100), Tights and Belt: Target, Watch: Michael Kors

This was a dress that I intended to try on "just for fun" but we all know how that turns out sometimes. As soon as I slipped it on I knew I was taking it home with me. I think that fit and flare dresses will forever be my favorite "go-to" item to wear. I'm sure there's plenty of ways to wear this but I decided to play with color a little bit. Thanks to the navy stripes I threw on some navy tights and added pops of red with a belt and red lipstick (Thanks Dragon Girl by NARS). 

Fall is in full effect now and I can't believe Thanksgiving is less than 20 days away. We were teased with the crisp air for so long but I'm ready for tights, sweaters and scarves. What about you?

Happy Monday, here's to a fresh start to the week. Also, it's been two weeks since the release of 1989 and I still can't stop listening to "Style".

  10. Fit & flare dresses will always be my favorite! You look adorable :). I just downloaded 1989 and I've been listening to it non-stop, I love it! You actually remind me of Taylor a little bit ;).


  11. Taylor's CD is literally on loop for me all. day. long. I woke up with Out of the Woods playing in my head; it's becoming a sickness haha. And this look is adorable! Just like you, I love fit and flare dresses. They make me feel so wonderfully girly. And every time I tell myself "I'm just trying it on for fun" the other side of me just rolls her eyes. Like I have the will power to just window shop...please, haha. ;)
