Polka dots. Leopard print. Stripes. As far as prints go, I don’t stray far from these three. Can’t quite say which is my favorite because they’re all pretty heavy in rotation. Beware: windblown hair below.
Today’s post is about one of my favorite items in my closet. Before we officially step into October and into fall, I had to post one of my favorite blog outfits to date. Being a blogger, you get to see the outfits of so many stylish people. This was one of those cases when I just had to grab this dress. I saw on Allison of Two Thirty Five Designs and immediately went on the hunt to find it.
The dress was a Target steal (don’t you love that?). It reminds me of a dress from my favorite designer Oscar de la Renta. I love when you can get designer inspired style on a budget. Black and white stripes are so classic. I love the bold statement that the pattern makes as well. I even have a black and white striped wall in my apartment (DIY) which shows you just how much I love this pattern.
Maxi dresses are another great option for the transitioning weather in the fall. With a wrap or cardigan this dress is perfect for those days that are crisp and cool in the morning but feel like summer by noon.
My wonderful photographer Izehi and I had so much fun on this shoot. We found a sweet spot by the lake and got a few snaps in on a hot summer evening. It’s always a joy to shoot with this lady. The detail shots she captured are just amazing. We didn’t even get the keyhole back but it’s an added bonus!
What are some of your closet icons? Any favorite designer inspired outfits?
