Mustard Yellow & Camouflage

Hello! Today, I broke out my mustard yellow dress out of my wardrobe. The bold color, waffled texture and fit-and-flare style of the dress draw me back to this dress whenever I'm unsure of what to wear. The fall weather today was ideal for layering so I slipped a camouflage jacket on over top of the dress. I also slipped on a pair of black thigh highs and combat boots. 

I kept my accessories to a minimum by simply styling a classic watch and white sunglasses with the look. Red lipstick completed the look.

Caged Platform Booties

Hello! Nothing makes me happier than weather like today's weather. Sunny skies and the crisp fall air tempted me to spend the day outside. Unfortunately, I had a lot of work that I needed to get done today and spent most of my time running errands and doing schoolwork instead of lounging around outside. 

Today, I styled my look around this navy, forest green and black plaid shirt dress. This is my ideal fall dress; the deep colors, classic shape and versatility of the dress have me falling head over heels in love with it. 

Plaid shirtdresses are definitely trending at the moment and if you don't have one yet, I would recommend looking around for and investing in one. Besides being stylish and "in", plaid shirtdresses can be styled numerous different ways. Check out my recent blog post for various different ways to style plaid shirtdresses HERE

To accentuate my waist, I tied a black knit sweater over the dress. I also threw on a pair of black cut-out boots. Recently, I purchased these boots from Daily Look. These are the "Caged Platform Booties" and they retail for $49.99 HERE. I am very pleased with the purchase; they fit true to size and are very good quality. However, they aren't the most comfortable worn without socks so I threw on a pair of gray socks with them today. I look forward to wearing these boots a lot more often this fall. I adore the cut-out style and heel of the boot. 

I layered up on golden accessories with several golden necklaces, rings, a classic watch and a small golden bag. Round sunglasses completed my look.
