{ The way I wore it }

The transitional weather has me showing a little knee this week. I have been visiting Free People's day dresses section often and have an unexplained new attraction to black floral print. I went with this buttondown shirtdess b/c I like the length and cut but I also have my eye on the list of others at the end of this post. I went through the entire site, no really the entire site b/c I'm "precise" so I listed all of your options with links at the bottom of the post.

And now for the stars of the show, The accessories.

For this dress I grabbed a red Elizabeth an James purse with a gold chain on it. It's really slim, like a wallet on a chain. But the chain is really long, so bag. It also comes in black which is chic but I've been wanting a red bag for some time and this one felt teeny enough to not takeover any look or make me feel like my gram (she's really well dressed. No disrespect to my gram, she just actually has a lot of red leather bags). I added taupe over the knee boots that I've owned forever. I live in them and they get better and better every year. Because these are no longer available I found you some similar ones here and here. And by "found you some" I really mean these are the next ones on my list. Yeah they'll cost you but you'll wear them for ten years straight fall winter and spring. Green mirrored Ray-bans and red lip has been my faaaavorite combination as of late, so I rocked it again with some Brandy Pham jewels, easy braids and this new lulu frost kinship pearl necklace . I wear underneath this dress and any lowly buttoned-down shirts so the statement is a little less in-your-face but a really special glimpse. oh AND I'm wearing matt black nail polish which I love, but cannot for the life of me get to stay put for longer than 40 mins tops. Please leave any suggestions below on how to make that work.
