(Outfit Notes: Dress-a birthday present from a friend last year// Long Sleeved Tee-Target clearance rack last year// Necklace-a gift from my Oma// Tights-Kohls on sale// Boots-Target clearance last year)
This outfit serves as another example of adding tights and boots to a Summer dress to make it work for Fall. However, I ought to admit that due to the hemline of this skirt being a bit shorter than I am normally comfortable with, I never wear it without something a bit more covering underneath. This summer I wore spandex shorts under it to a concert with bare legs and sandals. Here I have on sweater tights, and I would also do leggings. I usually prefer skirts and dresses to be at least right above my knee, but I loved this dress enough to make the exception. (I own it in two colors!)
This outfit is surprisingly comfortable, and I have worn the same combo a few times now because I like it so much. It serves me for going to work as well as for loafing around the house, playing with my toddler, and folding laundry. I also love combining black and brown when I can, something I used to be too scared to do, and the tones in this dress provide the perfect bridge for black tights to go with brown boots, and for a brown stone bead necklace to lay over a black long-sleeved tee.
I think this just might be my absolute favorite Fall outfit right now. What’s yours?
