Something about fall just makes me want to grab every print I have and layer it all together. Am I alone in this? Using a simple black dress as the base (that is the MOST flattering, btw), I paired together two of my favorite prints, camo and leopard. To throw one more pattern into the mix, I topped off the outfit with a little merlot-hued bandana that IMO, kind of makes the look. Last but not least, my go-to sunnies, peep toe booties, and simple jewelry.
What are your favorites prints to mix and match?

This shirtdress was a last minute purchase I made right before my Asheville trip, and it has ended up being a closet staple. It is SO soft and cozy! This look was perfect for a day of galleries, breweries, and exploring – check out all the details below.
Although this dress comes with a sash, I took it off for the casual and breezy vibe I was going for here. I topped off the outfit with a neutral bag and booties, simple jewelry, and a grey hat. When I wear this dress to work, however, I opt for a cinched waist and some fancy jewels to look a little more polished.
For a fun twist, I tied my favorite fall bandana onto my bag. As you can tell by my lips and nails, I can’t help throwing in a little pop of bordeaux whenever possible. #basic
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be trying to squeeze as many wears as possible out of this dress before the cold weather really sets in. What pieces are you living in this season?
Shirtdress: Gap | Booties: Aldo (similar) | Hat: Target | Bag: Target | Bandana: Madewell | Bangles: c/o Moon & Lola | Rings: H&M | Lips: NYX Matte Lipstick (‘Eden’) | Nails: OPI Gel (‘Malaga Wine’)
Labor Day has come and gone, which means the “unofficial” end of summer has too. But we still have a couple more weeks of official summer (and the heat that comes with it), so I’m squeezing the last drops out of the season. How, may you ask, is the best way to do this? A day at the sunflower farm, of course.
For this little adventure, I went with a soft chambray shirtdress that has outfitted me all summer and will surely carry into fall. I can’t wait to wear it layered under cozy cardigans!
Since the dress is pretty simple, I accessorized with a bright coral bandana, tortoiseshell sunglasses, and a good old stack of bourbons on my wrist. To top it off, I carried my favorite Madewell bag to tote around my hand-picked blooms when my basket got too heavy (oops!).
