Guys. Seriously. I have been such a bad blogger lately! I could list a million reasons why I have been MIA lately, but the number one spot has to go to daylight savings. Daylight savings is seriously killing me, as I go to work in the dark and come home when it's dark. Luckily, my schedule through the rest of December is pretty tame and I plan on finally, finally getting back into the swing of things! Yay!
I am obsessed with dresses. At one time, most of my closest consisted of dresses. Today, while I don't have as many as I used to, a large chunk is still devoted to my favorite type of clothing. What I adore about dresses is how easily they are transitioned from season to season, and their ability to be layered with so many different pieces. I especially love dresses that aren't overly fancy and can be dressed up or down.
I was so excited to receive this dress from August Wrinkle and can't tell you how many different ways I have worn it! It is by far the easiest dress I have ever owned to transition from day to night. I credit this to the fact that it has an extremely flattering fit, is made out of a comfortable, pretty fabric and is spot on with the color blocking trend without going over the top. The soft neutral brown and navy are SO easy to style, making this dress my favorite layering piece this year.
Boots: Target - get them HERE

For day, and a simple work look, I put a bright, chartreuse sweater over the top, a chunky bib necklace, patterned tights, and short boots. I absolutely love the way the dress was transformed into a flirty, pleated skirt. I won't lie, I've re-created this look with the same dress, but have mix and matched different sweater/tight/boot combinations for outfits with the same feel.
Shoes: Target (? Old!)
While I haven't worn this dressier version, I plan on wearing it out this holiday season. I love that this dress isn't over the top dressy, but looks "night out/christmas party" appropriate with a pair of heals and some pretty baubles. I am in search of a glitter waist belt to add to the ensemble for the perfect touch. How cute would that be?!
