How is it already Thursday and October halfway over? I feel like I haven’t done enough fall-related activities yet. I’ve made chili (this recipe, so good) and my fall wreath is hanging on my door but I still feel behind. I know I haven’t had enough PSL’s (Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte for those who missed the memo) and I have yet to make anything with pumpkin in it. I think I’ll find a good pumpkin bread or muffin recipe to make this weekend. If anyone has a good one, send it over!
So. I love this outfit. I love most of what I put on but this one is a favorite. There is something about classic black and white paired with fun accessories that really makes a girl smile. This bag is a repeat, last seen here, but it’s a great transition bag from summer into the fall season. A statement shift dress like this is great because it is easy to just throw on and go, plus they’re good at covering those areas you like to be covered.
This dress was from a secret shopping destination of mine that is now closed. It was Mikkat Market and I found it randomly through the Man Repeller. They had cute quality clothing and accessories at a good price. I think this dress was around $45, that’s how good. Sadly, they have closed the shop but don’t worry, I’ve linked other great options down below!

Here’s how to rock a simple outfit, yet make a statement:
- Accessories are key! Look for bold, eye-catching accessories whether it be killer shoes, a great handbag, or a bold necklace. (Or all three in this case!)
- Your clothing must be simple, yet chic. Plain is not what we are going for. You need a good canvas to layer the accessories on.
- Don’t be afraid to mix colors and patterns. Pink croc is a bold combination but it works in this case.
- Chose one color to be your highlight. I chose pink as my pop color and everything else is a neutral black and white.
Following these guidelines, it’s easy to make a statement without too much fuss. I can’t live without exciting accessories. It’s how to maximize your wardrobe and stretch your closet. Good, quality accessories will take you far.
Have a good weekend all!
