Striped Dress and Military Vest
STRIPED DRESS: Nordstrom (sold out, similar here and here) // MILITARY VEST: Nordstrom (love this one too!) // BOOTS: Dolce Vita // SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban // WATCH: Marc Jacobs
Hi friends, happy Monday! I hope you all are enjoying your long holiday weekend! I have today off from work, but working with my boyfriend today at his dealership, hence the late post! Today is such a beautiful day in Boston though, and I so wish we could just escape and head up north to see the foliage. And get an apple cider donut or two!
I have always love the concept of military jackets/vests. New England’s fall weather is so bipolar…sunny and 70 one day, then rainy and 50 the next. So, having a light jacket/vest on hand is always key (because I hate being cold!!). I love the idea of vests because they are so easy to throw over a sweater, or over a dress for that matter! I purchased this dress towards the end of summer, and never got a chance to wear it. So on Friday, I decided to pair it with my favorite military vest and over the knee boots.
Though I hate the cold, I still like the most of fall dress wearing. A swing dress like this is so perfect for layering…like I did in this post today. I can also see myself pairing this dress or any swing dress with sweaters or a warm scarf!
These boots have already been a go-to a lot the past couple of weeks. I am usually so excited for fall, that I wear boots the first week of September lol. But then I hate them come December!!! This year, I am trying to hold out and wear my boots here and there, but these boots make that so hard! I just want to wear them all day everyday.
I’ve linked some of my favorite swing dresses for fall below!
I hope you all have an amazing day!
