Little Black Dress for Fall

It’s. Almost. The. Weekend. #praisehands

Does anyone else feel like this week has been dragging a bit? Compared to the break-neck pace of work the past few months, this week, although a normal workload, seemed—dare I say it—slow. Even my weekly Tuesday call to discuss my capstone project for grad school with my advisor was less stressful than normal. While I’m usually furiously taking notes on his comments and suggestions, this week, there were only a few minor pieces of constructive criticism and a lot of “this looks great!”

Don’t get me wrong, I’m enjoying the much-welcome change of pace, but let’s call a spade a spade: I’m ready for the weekend—especially since I’m going to Charlottesville for my LAST young alumni reunions during Homecomings weekend. I guess next year I’ll be a regular ol’ alum. #tears

Though it might be too chilly in the Virginia mountains to wear this Karly Shift Dress wine tasting or to a football tailgate, it has quickly become one of my favorite purchase this fall—and it’s only $48!

This dress is perfect with my favorite cutout booties now, and I know as the weather gets colder, I can pair it with my favorite sweater tights and heeled black booties.

Unsurprisinly, my favorite way to dress up a simple black dress is with a great pair of earrings. I’ve been loving these snow white statement earrings from the Happiness Boutique since they go with everything. Seriously. Y’all know I’ve long loved the Happiness Boutique for statement earrings that are adorable and affordable—see evidence here, here, and here—and now they have a customer reward program that allows you to rack up points every time you shop to earn jewelry! #winning

    I think I’ve been eyeing this dress for about two years- sure seems like it’s time to pull the trigger! I love it with the flat booties (need a pair of those too!) 🙂
